Global personal robots market worth $3.8 billion in 2015

The study suggests that the global personal robots market is likely to grow from $3.8 billion in 2015 to $34.1 billion by 2022. The increase in urbanization is introducing machines, such as personal robots, in the households. Moreover, the declining price of personal robots has been encouraging the budget-conscious customers to purchase them. Their average price has declined by around 27% between 2005 and 2014, and it is likely to decline further by around 22% between 2015 and 2025. This is expected to boost their volume sales, especially in the developed countries, where a personal robot is only afforded by the higher economic class.
