Worldwide Consumer Robots Device Forecast, 2018–2022

By: Tom MainelliGroup Vice President, Devices & AR/VR


This IDC study provides market sizing of the worldwide consumer robot market for 2017. In addition, the study provides a worldwide forecast for 2018–2022.

"Today's consumer robots are pretty rudimentary and the best typically do one thing well such as vacuuming," says Tom Mainelli, program VP of Devices and AR/VR, IDC. "Over the course of the next few years we'll see robots get dramatically better at a wider range of jobs, and consumers will get considerably more comfortable interacting with them. As a result, IDC is forecasting a dramatic growth in the latter years of the forecast, and a bright future for this nascent device category."
