1.1 Introduction

The robotics market can be subdivided into 2 main categories

  • industrial robotics used for the automation of assembly or manufacturing tasks
  • service robotics used both in the field and in the field professional (in health, agriculture) or for use staff (vacuum cleaners or leisure robots for example)

At the global level, the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) is the reference body for the sector.

The two markets are growing strongly Nevertheless, they have various characteristics since the first is mainly driven by demand and companies from 3 Asian countries on a global scale while the players on the secondary market are more evenly distributed between countries, although centred in Europe.

In addition, these two markets are divided into one many different markets who have very different levels of maturity and customer segments of each other


1.2 Key figures of the world market

Market size
The global market for robotics is worth more than $** billion in **** according to the BNP Paribas and according to Statista could generate nearly *** billion dollars in ****, a **.*% annual growth rate . It should be noted that these figures include the sales results of each category as well as the revenues ...

1.3 Key figures for the French market

Market size
The French market remains far from the volumes of Asian countries or the United States, but nevertheless seems to have assets and to be on the rise and represents on the *rd e european market for industrial robot sales, behind Italy and Germany according to the IFR
Taking the ...


2.1 The demand for industrial robotics

At the global level, the main demand for industrial robotics is the automotive industry and the electrical and electronics industry, which alone account for nearly two-thirds of the world market

Source: ****
The demand for industrial robotics is mainly due to the automotive industry in France, which is very much in demand ...

2.2 The demand for professional service robotics

As for professional service robotics, the demands are varied, as are the possible applications the logistics, defence, public relations, agriculture, health and exoskeletons sectors are among the main applications and all of them are experiencing significant growth worldwide in **** ***% for logistics, **% for defense, **% for public relations, *% in agriculture, *% for exoskeletons and ...

2.3 The demand for robotics services for personal use

For the personal use part, a few additional factors must be taken into account
the reduction in time allocated to domestic tasks by French households The time that French women spend on domestic tasks decreases by more than an hour (***) according to iNSEE . The ageing of the population In ****, **.*% of the ...

2.4 To industry 4.0

Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Cloud and Big Data technologies and their complementarity will be the main technologies supporting industry *.* and corporate transformation. They will also be able to increase the capacities and use cases of robots tenfold: the latter, equipped with sensors and intelligent systems capable of analysing a large ...


3.1 The value chain

In its **** market study, DGCIS detailed the robotics value chain. This highlights in particular the diversity of public authority interventions along the chain as well as on the market.

3.2 Production

Robots, whether industrial or service, are made of the same materials, with a few exceptions Steel, cast iron and aluminium are the main components robots to build the bases and arms according to Madehow while rubber tires are the products usually used for mobile robots. Cylinders and other equipment used to ...

3.3 Distribution

Sales of industrial robots and service robots for professional use are, by definition, aimed at companies and therefore have a distribution network specific to a B*B market.
As such, most robot manufacturers are vertically integrated, i.e. they take care of the entire value chain without intermediaries, the R where ...

3.4 La chaîne de valeur

Lors de son étude sur le marché de la robotique en ****, la DGCIS a détaillé la chaîne de valeur de la robotique. Celle-ci souligne notamment la diversité des interventions de la puissance publique le long de la chaîne ainsi que sur le marché.

4.1 Product

The typology of robotics products established by the DGCIS in **** (***) highlights the types of markets addressed by each segment: indeed, service robotics for personal use is positioned as a rather mature mass market which explains in particular the low prices in this branch compared to the others industrial robotics are rather ...

4.2 Prices

Robotics prices are very different depending on the market segment, with on the one hand very expensive industrial robots and on the other hand low-cost domestic robots for the mass market
In the different segments, the products are also very different according to the applications, but show the same trend: a ...


5.1 Regulations in force

A regulation still under construction
Some of the regulations concerning industrial robots are similar to the regulation of industrial machines highlighted by the directive ****/**/EC of the European Parliament
Nevertheless, regulations still largely need to be developed to answer the ethical and philosophical questions raised by robots and artificial intelligence . In ...

5.2 Un rôle nécessaire des pouvoirs publics

Le soutien des pouvoirs publics en France sera déterminant à l’avenir pour le marché de la robotique, notamment pour éviter le « syndrome Alderaban » expliqué par BNP Paribas, à savoir la difficulté des acteurs français pour industrialiser leur solution par manque de moyen, ce qui les oblige à se faire racheter par ...

5.3 Quelques normes ISO

La norme ISO *****-part* (***) est encore en gestation au sein du groupe de travail ISO ad-hoc. La France via sa commission de normalisation UNM**- Robots Industriel a demandé à ce que la diffusion officielle ne soit pas plus tard que mi-****.
Pendant cette période transitoire, la commission Française UNM** ...
