Data Monetization and Revenue Generation Emerging as New Priorities for City Governments

In the wake of COVID-19, cities and municipalities increasingly find themselves cash-strapped, having overspent during the pandemic on various services such as policing and healthcare. At the same time, they need to finance the deployment of new technologies such as digital twins, robotics, and connected infrastructure to make their cities more resilient. According to ABI Researchthese new technologies are critical to preparing cities for a slew of new potential threats such as climate change-related catastrophes and cyber-attacks.

Revenues from Robotics Deployed in Warehouses to Cross US$51 Billion by 2030

The warehousing industry has ramped up its automation efforts considering the increased order volume and labor shortages fueled by the pandemic. In addition to technology solutions such as Augmented Reality (AR) powered smart glasses and handheld devices with enhanced capabilities, autonomous, collaborative, and mobile robots are proving to be the most popular and fastest-growing productivity-enhancing solution in the warehouse workspace. According to ABI Research, worldwide commercial robot revenue in warehouses will have a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of over 23% from 2021 to 2030 and exceed US$51 billion by 2030.

“Mobile robots are at the heart of the warehouse robotics market and account for most shipments and revenue. These robots, made up of Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs), are being used to move goods within the warehouse and being integrated within wider automated or manual workflows,” states Adhish Luitel, Industry Analyst, Supply Chain Management and Logistics.

Demand for high-capacity residential broadband, accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic, is set to continue. 5G fixed wireless access (FWA) is set to be the fastest-growing residential broadband segment, according to a study from ABI Research, increasing at a CAGR of 71% and exceeding 58 million subscribers in 2026. The significant increase in use of internet-based home entertainment such as video streaming and online gaming also pushed existing broadband users to upgrade their broadband services to higher-tier packages, while households previously without broadband access signed up for new subscriptions.

“Increasing adoption of internet-connected devices, smart TVs and smart home devices, as well as consumers’ media consumption through internet applications, will continue to drive high-speed broadband adoption in the years to come,” observed Khin Sandi Lynn, industry analyst at ABI Research.

Covid hastens the rise of the robots

The Daily Telegraph

In recent months, a shortage of willing workers. blamed on continued uneasiness about Covid and ongoing border restrictions, has led to rising wages. It is the perfect scenario, in other words, for robots to step in. This year, shipments of industrial robotics will grow by 9pc, according to Interact Analysis. ABI Research predicts that global spending on automation will rise from $23bn (£16.6bn) to $31bn.

“You have a situation where because they have such cheap capital, and because the cost of borrowing is so low, companies can actually think about investing for the long term and, using the crisis to make [their] supply chain more resilient,” says Rian Whitton of ABI Research. “It’s not surprising that automation is getting a lot of additional attention.”
