SLAM Technology Market to Generate Revenue Worth $3,775.3 Million by 2030

  • Published: June 2020

Growing adoption of industrial robots, increasing usage of UAVs, and rising number of augmented reality (AR) applications are some of the key factors that positively impact the growth of the global SLAM technology market. Due to these factors, the industry is expected to generate $3,775.3 million revenue in 2030, advancing at a CAGR of 38.3% during the forecast period (2020–2030).

SLAM Technology Market Segmentation

The SLAM technology market, based on type, is classified into EKF, fast, graph-based, and others. Among these, the EKF category held the largest share, of 51.0%, in 2019. This is due to the extensive use of EKF algorithm over other algorithms, as it exhibits consistent behavior in terms of state variables over an extended time period. Further, EKF has very low algorithm complexity than others, which is further increasing its adoption in the industry. EKF algorithm is generally used for 2D environment mapping.

The 3D category, based on offering, is projected to witness faster growth in the SLAM technology market, during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing usage of 3D SLAM technology for augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR) applications. The applications require precise mapping of a physical environment for accurate projection of virtual images onto the physical space, and 3D technology is capable of providing this level of accuracy.

The AR/VR category, on the basis of application, is projected to witness the fastest growth in the SLAM technology market, during the forecast period. This can be ascribed to the increasing applications of AR/VR devices across several industries. SLAM technology is required in AR/VR devices for various purposes, including location tracking, location recognition, display, graphics, and interaction.

Geographically, the SLAM technology market in APAC is expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period. Economic development, expansion of manufacturing facilities primarily in China and India, growing IT spending, and rising adoption of drones by the automotive and manufacturing industries are the key factors fueling the market growth in the region.
