World Robotics Survey: Future market for private robotic assistants

With household and garden robotic assistants already an established field in the private sector, another major market of tomorrow is for robotic assistants used in the care of the elderly and the disabled. Background: With one eye on the ageing population, many countries have initiated research projects aimed at using hi-tech robots to assist older people and those with limited mobility. Manufacturers sold 4,416 units of these kinds of robotic assistants in 2014 (2013: 699). The trend in this segment therefore continues to be a positive one. Sales showed a 542-percent year-on-year increase - even if partly based on a higher number of registration figures.
