Consumer robotics is shifting from a phase of being largely dominated by cleaning robots, into robotic personal assistants or family companions. Also, robotic toys, which, until now, were largely gimmicky, are transforming into interactive connected play devices that have virtually limitless possibilities, as well as useful educational tools as a part of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)-based curriculum. The second phase of the consumer robotics revolution is well and truly underway, and the next 5 years will set the stage for how these robots fundamentally transform our homes and daily lives.

Worldwide sales of consumer robots reached $3.8 billion in 2016 and Tractica expects that the market will continue to grow strongly over the next few years, while providing significant opportunities for new industry participants as well, reaching a market value of $13.2 billion by the end of 2022. Tractica forecasts that worldwide consumer robot unit shipments will increase from 10.0 million in 2016 to 50.7 million units annually by 2022.
