What’s in the cards for service robotics?

automatica will take you on a journey to the future: Service robotics has already evolved to become one of the most important building blocks for innovation and you as an exhibitor contribute to accelerate this process. Whether it comes to logistics, healthcare, retail or everyday life − the demand for smart support is increasing rapidly. Together with our exhibitors and visitors as well as leading representatives of companies and research institutes, we provide a future-oriented platform for service robotics.

Great opportunities for exhibitors:

More than 271,000 professional service robots were sold globally in 2018. A further increase of 33% is expected in 2019. Autonomous guided vehicles (AGV) and mobile robot platforms currently see the greatest demand. With 41% of units sold, they account for the largest market share and are mainly used in logistics and production (Source: World Robotics 2019). At automatica, we have not only dedicated a separate exhibition area to this versatile growth market, but we are making it the center of attention to put you as an exhibitor in the limelight.
