This study presents the IDC Worldwide Robotics team's analysis of key drivers relating to robotics, and how these drivers are likely to shape the development of robotics in the planning horizon of 2017 through 2020. IDC believes that such developments in robotics will have the potential to disrupt the business ecosystem for all industries and hence will have significant impact on the companies' IT functions. IDC robotics analysts worldwide worked collaboratively on the development of the top 10 robotics predictions, bringing together the collective knowledge of their regions, industrial verticals, and data points of how technology is being deployed across all industries.
"Technological development in artificial intelligence, computer vision, navigation, MEMS sensor, and semiconductor technologies continue to drive innovation in the capability, performance, autonomy, ease of use, and cost-effectiveness of industrial and service robots. We'll see massive adoption of robotics in the coming years. This study highlights the major trends in robotics, which we believe will present opportunities as well as new challenges that IT leaders will have to face," says Dr. Jing Bing Zhang, research director, Worldwide Robotics and Asia/Pacific Manufacturing Insights, IDC Asia/Pacific.
