概要

世界のソーシャルロボット市場規模は2022年に34億米ドルに達しました。今後、IMARC Groupは、2022年から2028年の間に30.02%の成長率(CAGR)を示し、市場は2028年までに172億米ドルに達すると予測しています。AIとロボット工学の進歩、パーソナライズされたコンパニオナブルなデバイスに対する需要の高まり、ヘルスケアと教育におけるアプリケーションの拡大、自動化と効率化ニーズの増加、社会の高齢化と労働力不足、技術的な手頃さとアクセシビリティは、市場を推進する主な要因の一部です。

ソーシャルロボットとは、人間と社会的な関わりを持つように設計された高度な機械です。これらのロボットには人工知能(AI)とセンサーが搭載されており、表情、ジェスチャー、発話といった人間の合図を感知して反応することができます。会話や共感、さらには感情の表示など、人間のような行動をシミュレートするようにプログラムされています。様々な産業で幅広い用途があります。ヘルスケアでは、患者に寄り添いサポートを提供したり、セラピーセッションを支援したり、投薬スケジュールのリマインダーとして機能したりすることができます。教育分野では、インタラクティブな学習体験や個別指導を促進することができます。さらに、これらのロボットはカスタマーサービスで使用され、支援や情報を提供し、全体的なユーザー体験を向上させる。

AIとロボット技術の急速な進歩は、ソーシャルロボットの能力を大幅に向上させました。自然言語処理、顔認識、ジェスチャー検出の向上により、ロボットは人間のやり取りをよりよく理解し反応できるようになり、ソーシャル・インタラクション能力が向上しています。さらに、同伴者、感情的サポート、パーソナライズされたサービスを提供できるデバイスへの需要が高まっています。人間のような行動をシミュレートできるソーシャルロボットは、こうしたニーズを満たすユニークなソリューションを提供します。ソーシャルロボットは、高齢者に寄り添い、障害のある人を支援し、子供たちを教育活動に参加させることができます。このほか、ヘルスケアや教育分野でもロボットの導入が急増しています。ヘルスケア分野では、これらのロボットは患者の監視、治療の提供、リハビリテーションの支援に役立っています。教育産業では、個別学習をサポートし、生徒を個人指導し、双方向の体験を促進します。このほかにも、これらの先進的なロボットは、反復作業の自動化、効率の改善、顧客体験の向上のために、さまざまな産業で導入されています。小売業では接客サービス、接客業ではコンシェルジュ・サービス、銀行業ではインフォメーションやアシスタンスに活用されています。これに伴い、高齢化や労働力不足が進む分野では、ソーシャルロボットがそのギャップを埋める解決策となります。高齢者のサポートや介助を行い、介護者の負担を軽減し、ヘルスケアや介護などの産業における労働力不足の影響を緩和することができます。さらに、技術の進歩に伴い、ロボットの開発・製造コストは低下しており、企業や個人にとってより身近なものとなっています。

ソーシャルロボットの市場動向と促進要因:

人工知能(AI)とロボット工学の進歩

自然言語処理、機械学習、コンピュータビジョンなどのAI技術は、ソーシャルロボットの能力を大幅に向上させています。自然言語処理によって、ロボットは人間の話し言葉を理解し、それに反応することができるようになり、機械学習によって、ロボットは継続的に学習し、人間とのより良い対話ができるように適応することができます。さらに、コンピュータ・ビジョン技術により、ロボットは表情、ジェスチャー、感情を認識・解釈できるようになり、社会的相互作用能力が向上しました。このような進歩により、ロボットはよりインテリジェントになり、直感的で、反応もよくなり、ロボットの受容と導入が進んでいます。また、ロボットが人間のような行動をシミュレートできるようになったことで、ユーザーとのより魅力的で有意義なインタラクションが実現できるようになっています。AIとロボット工学の進歩が進むにつれ、ソーシャルロボットはさらに洗練され、人間の複雑な感情や状況、個人の嗜好を理解できるようになると予想され、さまざまな産業への統合がさらに推進されます。

ヘルスケアと教育分野での用途拡大

ヘルスケアでは、ソーシャルロボットは患者、特に高齢者や障害を持つ人に寄り添い、サポートするために活用されています。会話に参加したり、バイタルサインをモニターしたり、服薬のリマインダーを支援したり、さらには治療の補助として機能することもあります。これらのロボットは、限られた人的資源という課題に対処する解決策を提供し、患者に精神的なサポートを提供することで、患者の全体的な幸福を向上させる。同様に、教育分野では、これらのロボットは学習体験を向上させるために導入されています。ロボットは家庭教師として機能し、生徒一人ひとりに合わせた指導やフィードバックを提供することができます。ロボットは双方向的な活動を行い、生徒の参加を促し、個々の学習スタイルに応じて指導方法を適応させる。ソーシャルロボットのインタラクティブで魅力的な性質を活用することで、教育機関はより没入感のある効果的な学習環境を構築することができます。

スマートホームエコシステムへのロボットの統合

スマートホームテクノロジーの台頭により、ソーシャルロボットは、スマートデバイスの制御、リマインダーの提供、家事タスクの管理が可能なパーソナルアシスタントとして統合されつつあります。ロボットは、スマートサーモスタット、照明システム、セキュリティカメラ、エンターテイメントシステムなど、さまざまなスマートデバイスと相互作用することができます。これらのロボットがハブとして機能することで、ユーザーは音声コマンドや直感的なインターフェイスを通じてスマートホームデバイスを制御することができます。これらのロボットは、スマートホームでの繰り返し作業を自動化するのに役立ちます。例えば、特定の時間に照明をつけたり、好みに基づいてサーモスタットを調節したり、特定の条件が満たされたときに特定のアクションを開始するようにプログラムすることができます。

Social robots offer unique capabilities to meet these requirements. They can provide companionship and support to patients, assist in therapy sessions, and even help with medication management. The ability of these robots to engage in empathetic and personalized interactions makes them particularly valuable in healthcare settings where emotional support and companionship are crucial. Additionally, the healthcare industry often faces labor shortages, especially in caregiving and elderly care. They can help alleviate this strain by assisting healthcare professionals in routine tasks, monitoring patients' vital signs, and providing basic care. By integrating social robots into healthcare workflows, organizations can optimize their resources, improve efficiency, and ensure consistent quality of care even in the face of staffing challenges. Moreover, they have proven to be effective in therapeutic applications. They can support individuals with autism spectrum disorders, assist in rehabilitation programs, and provide cognitive stimulation for patients with dementia. The healthcare industry recognizes the potential of robots in improving patient outcomes and has been at the forefront of adopting and implementing these technologies

Asia Pacific exhibits a clear dominance, accounting for the social robots market share

The report has also provided a comprehensive analysis of all the major regional markets, which include North America (the United States and Canada); Europe (Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Russia, Others); Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, Australia, Indonesia, Others); Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, Others); and the Middle East and Africa. According to the report, Asia Pacific was the largest market.

Asia Pacific is home to some of the world's largest and fastest-growing economies, including China, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore. These countries have a strong focus on technological innovation and are actively investing in robotics and AI research and development. The region's robust manufacturing capabilities and technological expertise have allowed for the production and deployment of these robots on a large scale. Additionally, the cultural factors in Asia Pacific play a significant role in driving the product adoption. In countries like Japan, there is a long-standing tradition of integrating robots into society, where they are seen as companions and assistants. The concept of humanoid and social robots resonates well with the cultural values and perceptions of technology in the region. The aging population in countries like Japan and South Korea also creates a product demand in healthcare and elderly care settings, where they can provide companionship and assistance. Other than this, the region has a strong focus on education and technological advancements in sectors such as healthcare, manufacturing, and hospitality. The region's growing middle class and rising disposable income levels have led to increased demand for personalized services and interactive experiences. Social robots, with their ability to provide engaging and interactive interactions, are well-suited to meet these demands in education, customer service, and entertainment industries.
