Definition of Construction Robot  

A construction robot is a type of industrial robot that is used to build buildings and infrastructure on construction sites. These robots handle building supplies, adapt to the working environment, and interact with humans during construction. Construction still requires a lot of labor all over the world. Robotics and automation can help streamline time-consuming and repetitive tasks. Construction robots reduce fatigue-related losses in addition to reducing human error. This improves worker safety while also reducing operational time. Construction project automation with robots improves efficiency, lowers labor costs, and ensures worker safety.

Construction Robot Market




 There is high labor intensity in the construction industry. Automation and robotics in the construction industry can significantly reduce costs, provide workplace safety, enhance efficiency, and save time. Further, it is projected that between 2022 and 2050, the construction industry is expected to build more than 12500 buildings exclusively for urban populations. From 2020 to 2021, the total construction in the world witnessed a growth of ~13%. Incorporating construction robots will help enhance safety, accelerate the development process, as well as enhance the cost-effectiveness of construction projects.

Global Construction Robot Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increased Adoption of Automation in the Construction Industry – According to a survey conducted by ABB Robotics of nearly 1,800 leaders in the construction industry, 43% of them are having difficulty recruiting workers. 80% of companies expect to introduce robots into construction operations within the next decade. Robotic automation offers significant potential for increasing productivity, improving efficiency, and enhancing flexibility in the construction industry, with a wide range of applications, such as facilitating modular home fabrication, off-site construction, and the manufacture of houses and customized structures using 3D printing. Hence, all these factors are anticipated to drive market growth over the forecast period.

  • Construction Work-Related Fatalities - Safety hazards associated with construction workers include working at heights, trips, falls, and slips; excessive noise; electrical shocks; and so on leading to some serious health injuries and sometimes death. In the U.S., ~21% of worker fatalities in the private sector in 2019 happened in the construction industry. Robots can assist humans and provide them with a safe work environment in construction projects, as well as take on the risks associated with such projects.

  • Rapid Growth of 3D Printing - According to estimates, the global 3D printing market reached USD 12 billion in 2020, an increase of 20% over 2019. Moreover, traditional manufacturing technologies contributed to the rapid adoption of additive manufacturing during the past year, with 64% of engineering businesses using 3D printing in excess. With the ability to 3D print large-scale structures, a construction robot potentially transforms the industry, eliminating waste from traditional manufacturing methods and making it more efficient and sustainable.

  • Efficient Use of Automatic Drones for Remote Monitoring - About 38% of construction companies experiment with drones by combining them with 3D modeling or using them for large-scale projects. AI-enabled drones are used for monitoring the security of construction sites. It is capable of capturing high-quality aerial footage and images of work sites. Around 19% of small and medium-sized businesses in the United States used drones for construction activities such as photogrammetry and mapping in 2018. Automatic drones help monitor construction sites that are remotely located or are not easily accessible.

  • Inevitable Growth of Robotics – There is an inevitable growth of robotics, particularly in the construction sector, owing to an influx of private equity funds, technological developments, enhanced workplace safety, higher productivity, reliable supply chains, and so on. It was observed that over 2 million industrial robots were estimated to be in use in factories worldwide as of 2021. In addition, the number of new robots shipped worldwide in 2020 was more than 380000.


  • High Expense of the Technology Applied in Designing and Operating the Equipment

  • Unpredictable Geography of the Construction Sites

  • Technological Constraints/Limitations

Despite advances in robotics, construction presents its own set of unique challenges. For robots to be effectively used in construction, there are several challenges to overcome, including withstanding harsh outdoor conditions, operating on limited power, and having a complex operation that requires additional training and is expensive. Hence, this factor is projected to hinder market growth in the coming years.

The global construction robot market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by function into demolition, 3D printing, material handling, surveillance, bricklaying, concrete structural erection, finishing work, doors and windows installation, and others. Out of these, the demolition segment is anticipated to hold the largest market size by the end of 2035. A new generation of demolition robots has revolutionized the construction industry and is projected to create tremendous growth prospects. One of the compelling reasons for using demolition robots is the inherent dangers posed to workers' lives during construction and demolition works. For instance, construction workers constitute only up to 7% of the workforce in the United States (U.S.). However, ~21% of work-related deaths in the U.S. happen in the construction industry. Demolition robots not only ensure safety but also improve work efficiency.

Global Construction Robot Market Regional Synopsis

The North American construction robot market, amongst the market in all the other regions, is projected to hold the largest market share by the end of 2035 on the back of the growing regional robotics industry, and the rapid growth of the construction sector. Moreover, the shortage of skilled workers in the United States is expected to propel the adoption of construction robots in the region over the forecast period. A recent study has claimed that the pandemic led to the loss of almost 7.9 million skilled-labor jobs from the labor force in the United States. The robotics businesses in North America witnessed ~4% growth in 2021. Further, more than 31000 robots have been purchased by manufacturing firms in the United States. As of 2022, ~64% of contractors are using drones on construction projects in the region. In the U.S. alone, the number of new housing units planned yearly surpasses 1 million.
