Also, as a result of the arrival of a number of well-known worldwide suppliers, the market in this region will continue to develop steadily. Similarly, the geographical market share of the North American Entertainment Robot market is influenced by the early acceptance of technology and fast-speed developments, as well as substantial R&D expenditure in robotics. Due to rising consumer purchasing power, the APAC market is predicted to develop at a high CAGR throughout the forecast period. The expansion of the APAC Entertainment Robot market is aided by the increasing number of players in Japan and South Korea.

Growth Factors

  • Growing technological advancements and increasing investments in R&D

One of the major reasons for the growth of the entertainment robot market is growing technological advancements coupled with the increasing investments in the research and development of artificial intelligence technology and its use in children's toys, as well as increased demand for animatronics in the coming years. For instance, Amazon debuted Astro, its first home robot, in 2021. Astro is a three-wheeled robot that can transport items from room to room, video chat, play music, keep a watch on your house while you're gone, and more. Astro is a mash-up of a number of Amazon's other devices mounted on wheels. Astro also provides information regarding sports scores or the weather and enables the users to see movies or other entertainment shows.

  • Promising growth potential is shown by the industry

With increasing automation across several industry verticals, the entertainment industry has been increasingly adapting entertainment robots for better efficiency and lower risk to lives. Furthermore, the growing adoption of these robots in the household sector is expected to support the market. Data from the International Federation of Robotics shows that the number of entertainment robots in 2019 was 4.6 million units which increased to around 5 million in 2020. This number is further projected to reach 6.7 million units by 2023.  


  • High initial investments and lack of skilled labor restrain the market growth

A major restraint in the growth of the entertainment robot market is the high initial investment in the production of entertainment robots and the lack of skilled labor. The requirement of skilled labor for the production of entrainment robots and the high initial investments has deprived new entrants in the entertainment robot market limiting its market growth during the forecast period.

Recent Developments

February 2021, Product Launch. Engineer’s art, a global leader in the entertainment robot industry, launched its latest humanoid entertainment robot, Cleo. Cleo has the capability to entertain people through its gesticulates, impressions, and signs. The product is amid to entertain and make people laugh.
