Construction Robotics Market to Reach $226 Million Worldwide by 2025, According to Tractica

More than 7,000 Robot Assistants, Infrastructure Robots, Structure
Robots, and Finishing Robots Will Be Deployed for Construction Between
2018 and 2025

BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="" target="_blank"gt;#constructionlt;/agt;–Construction is a historically labor-intensive industry with little
automation. The traditional solution to achieving more production was to
simply add more workers. Whereas productivity in many other industries
has risen substantially, productivity in construction has been nearly
flat because little technology has been developed or introduced until
recently. According to a new report from Tractica,
the industry is ripe for disruption, and a growing number of
construction companies are incorporating robots to solve labor shortages
and reap the benefits of improved speed, efficiency, safety, and
profits. Robots are beginning to make their way into a variety of
construction tasks, promising to change the way the industry creates
homes, buildings, and other infrastructure.

Tractica forecasts that growing interest in construction robots will
drive an increase in market revenue from $22.7 million in 2018 to $226.0
million annually by 2025. During that period, the market intelligence
firm forecasts that more than 7,000 construction robots will be deployed
to address a variety of construction and demolition tasks. The largest
market in terms of unit shipments will be for robot assistants used on
construction sites, followed by infrastructure robots, structure robots,
and finishing robots.

“At this early stage in the construction robotics industry, a few
companies are offering products for sale or lease,” says senior analyst
Glenn Sanders. “The main categories that are currently available include
robots for demolition, bricklaying, drilling, 3D printing, and rebar
tying, plus a few exoskeletons and assistant robots for lifting loads.”

Sanders adds that midsize and major construction companies are beginning
to adopt these robots to solve issues related to labor shortages,
safety, speed, accuracy, and integration with building automation and
building information modeling (BIM).
