"About 48% of component revenue can be attributed to task robotics, while 51% will come from the entertainment robotics segment," says ABI Research principal analyst Philip Solis. "The remaining 1% to 2% is derived from security and educational segments."
ABI says that the number of major components used in robots will increase over the next few years as well resulting in reduced prices. PC-powered processors will hit market during 2009. ABI says that current microcontroller use in personal robotics is in the millions and will increase to over 2 billion by 2015.
