North American Robot Sensors Market size is predicted to cross USD 1.5 billion by 2026, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
The North America robot sensors market is gaining traction owing to an increase in demand for autonomous robotic technology in domestic applications across the region. Domestic robots are used for applications such as pool cleaning, lawn mowing, vacuuming, and window cleaning, among others. These robots are easy to maintain and available at an affordable rate, followed by companies manufacturing domestic robots offering yearly service features. Major companies are inclined toward the development of such robots in replacing high-priced leisure robots. For instance, in January 2020, Robosen launched its domestic robot, T9 with RPA and AI technologies at an affordable rate.
The collaborative robot segment accounted around 10% market share in 2019 and is estimated to witness over 15% CAGR from 2020 to 2026. Growth is majorly attributed to the rising adoption of collaborative robots in manufacturing facilities. Collaborative robots (Cobots) provide safety features, such as collision detection and force feedback, among others, allowing humans to work within the same cell/ area. Cobots can be used in various facility areas that include pick and place, quality inspection, packaging & palletizing, etc. Apart from the industrial and manufacturing applications, they can be deployed in agricultural and domestic applications such as handling seedling & herbs, assisting restaurants with labor shortages, and others. The rising integration of collaborative robots in various industries will positively influence robot manufacturers toward new product innovation. For instance, in January 2019, Omron launched a new collaborative robot that will automate repetitive tasks and will also enhance human-machine interaction.

The defense application segment is anticipated to register a growth rate of 7% till 2026. Growing demand for assisted technology devices for monitoring and controlling applications in the aerospace & defense sector will accelerate the market demand. The rising government inclination to increase the adoption of robots in defense applications will further fuel the market growth. In September 2020, the U.S. Air Force tested the potential of robot dogs on the battlefield, which will offer a preview of the warfare. The defense and military use surveillance robots, which are partially automated and operate through instructions for gathering information and data while detecting obstacles through sensors.
Canada robot sensors market accounted for around 10% revenue share in 2019 and is set to observe 7.5% growth rate through 2026. Growth is majorly driven by rising government initiatives and programs to accelerate the adoption of automation technology in the regional manufacturing sector. For example, in February 2021, Next Generation Manufacturing Canada announced to fund USD 11 million to integrate flexible automation systems and smart production across various manufacturing verticals in the region. This initiative will accelerate the adoption of AI, collaborative robots, and Industry 4.0 to deliver a flexible manufacturing environment in the region. These initiatives will drive the sales of industrial robots in the region, providing an opportunity for robot sensor manufacturers.
Key players in the market are continuously focusing on new product innovations and research & development activities to cater to the high demand in the industry. For example, in April 2020, Fanuc launched its new 3DV/1600 vision sensor for warehousing, logistics, and e-commerce applications. Similarly, in January 2020, TE Connectivity developed a safety torque sensor, delivering high-speed and accuracy for next-generation collaborative robot applications.
