Soft robotics is a sub-field of robotics that deals with building robots out of very compliant materials similar to those found in biological organisms. The way living organisms move and adapt to their surroundings has greatly influenced soft robotics. As opposed to stiff robots, soft robots have more flexibility and adaptability when it comes to completing tasks.

Soft robotics allows designing completely functional body components that can adjust to and mimic human movements. This is accomplished by using extremely flexible materials. Also, strong pneumatic actuation is utilized to replicate human motion.

Key factors propelling the global soft robotics market growth are:

  • Automation in food & beverage industry
  • Rapid industrial automation
  • Technology adoption in healthcare
  • Requirement of agility & efficiency in logistics
    • The agility & efficiency in logistics enables to meet customer demand swiftly and affordably during fluctuations and high volume orders.
    • This helps in differentiating the companies from their competitors in terms of the delivery of products.

Major growth restraining factors:

  • Costs associated with soft robotics development
    • The development of soft robots worthy of application needs high investments in R&D in terms of cost and time.
    • This acts as an entry barrier for the new players and users since they require paying high costs for the end product.
  • Hindrance in deployment due to less stretchability of electronic components

The report on the global soft robotics market includes the segmentation analysis of type, end-user, components, mobility, and application. These segments are further classified to provide a detailed analysis of the studied market.
