The global programmable robots market was valued at USD 1,050.8 Million in 2014 and is expected to grow at an estimated CAGR of 14.94% between 2015 and 2020. The education & research and hobbyist sector constituted the largest application for the programmable robots market in 2014 and is expected to continue to grow at a significant rate because of the increasing adoption of robots in several educational institutions by including them in academic curriculum.

Programmable robot is an automatic device that performs functions normally ascribed though programs or remote control. These programmable robots  can range from a simple remote-controlled to PC-controlled robots and also from simple wheeled robots to complex robots such as humanoids. These robots help in understanding and conceptualizing the theories involved in designing and operating a robot and also help to program the robot using simple virtual programming languages such C, C++, Java, and others, helping consumers to have a structured thinking towards problem solving. The major consumers of these robots are students, hobbyists, and researchers.

The programmable robots market players have been focusing on the innovations in terms of technological advancements to cater to the specific needs of several consumers and to increase the safety, durability, and robustness of these robots. Robotic toys have been experiencing a slowdown in the recent years. However, robotic pets are expected to offset the robotic toys market during the forecast period. The market for these applications is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period because of the increasing adoption of the robots accompanied by the decreasing price of robots due to the decline in the prices of several robotics components such as sensors, actuators, and others.

North America was the largest market for programmable robots in 2014 with a share of 51.48%. However, developing economies including Asia-Pacific and RoW are expected to be the fastest-growing markets for programmable robots during the forecast period. The growth of the market in North America would be largely driven by the U.S., which accounted for 76.45% of the total North American programmable robots market in 2014. The Asia-Pacific market is expected to be driven by its key markets such as Japan, China, South Korea, and India. The market would also be fuelled by the increase in focus of the major global robotics vendors to expand their product and service offerings in the Asia-Pacific and RoW regions as these regions are expected to witness a significant growth in terms of the adoption of robotics over the next decade.
