Global adoption of UVC-equipped automated mobile robots (AMR) soars as businesses prioritise advanced cleaning and hygiene. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 31.02 percent during the period 2022 to 2028 according to Arizton’s latest report: Disinfection Robots Market – Global Outlook & Forecast 2023-2028.

AMRs are used for cleaning and disinfection in distribution centres, hospitality services, grocery stores, healthcare facilities, and more. The need for cleanliness and hygiene has become crucial due to the COVID-19 pandemic. AMRs offer a cost-effective way of achieving this by deploying automated cleaning and disinfection equipment wherever needed. An autonomous cleaning robot removes visible dirt and can apply disinfectants for effective sanitisation. Some are fitted with spraying devices for disinfection of surfaces above floor level. A UVC disinfection robot is a type of AMR equipped with a UVC emitter suitable to disinfect environments from bacteria and viruses.

Automated guided vehicles (AGV) are being challenged by the more sophisticated, flexible, and cost-effective technology of AMRs. Although an AMR has more advanced technology than an AGV, it is typically a less expensive solution. An AMR does not need wires, magnetic strips, or other costly modifications. Therefore, it is faster and less expensive to get AMRs up and running, with no expensive disruption to production during the process. AMRs are highly flexible, which is crucial for modern manufacturing environments requiring agility and flexibility in case of product modifications or production lines.

Recently, AMRs have been deployed into disinfecting robots, thereby contributing to the market’s growth. The aggressive adoption of disinfection robots has increased demand and new large-scale investments worldwide, propelling the market. Across the board, such robots were deployed widely before the pandemic, followed by existing robotic platforms that can be adapted readily to address the most pressing current needs. Since existing platforms cater to the current demands, making investments will result in developing systems ready for future crises. Most companies are focusing on product line expansion to include disinfection robots integrating improved autonomous capabilities compared to existing products.
