Why Graph-based SLAM Robots Have the Higher Market Share in the SLAM Robots Market by Type?

Graph-based SLAM Robots can be implemented at low cost with relatively inexpensive cameras and they can also be used for detecting landmarks thereby ensuring a high level of precision. Such factors are leading to the widespread adoption of graph-based SLAM technology in varied industry verticals, this technology can also be implemented for underwater exploration increasing its application for navigational purposes.

For these reasons, graph-based slam robots held the largest market share of 41.7% for 2022 by type.

Why Does Two Dimensional Segment Have the Larger Market Share by Offering for the SLAM Robots Market?

Based on the offerings the two-dimensional segment is analyzed to dominate the SLAM Robot Market with a share of 59.3% in 2022, owing to the factors such as increasing application of 2D sensors in various appliances, less complexity associated with the implementation of 2D SLAM technology as compared to the 3D SLAM technology and so on. Furthermore, 2D SLAM technology is being widely used in industrial robots for direction mapping, localization, and motion planning. These are the key factors behind the increased market share of 2D SLAM Robots.

Why the Augmented Reality (AR)/Virtual Reality (VR) has the Highest CAGR by Application?

SLAM Robots' market share for the Augmented Reality (AR)/Virtual Reality (VR) application is estimated to grow at the fastest rate with a CAGR of 28.9% during the forecast period of 2023 to 2033. Some factors behind this market growth are the growing use of SLAM technology in AR applications for object recognition and overlay digital interactive augmentations, along with the rising utilization of SLAM in autonomous robots, home appliances, machines, and so on.
