Although India’s robotics industry is minuscule when compared with those of the U.S. and Japan, many observers believe that it is only a matter of time before the nation — which already has a growing presence in the global information technology community — becomes a major player in robotics design and manufacturing.
India already has many of the basic elements in place to become a robotics industry force, including a strong educational system, established business and academic research facilities, and an increasingly entrepreneurial business community.
Over the past several years, the Indian robotics industry has pushed far beyond traditional business areas, such as manufacturing and production, to enter emerging domains including education, rehabilitation, and entertainment.
Over the same time span, the number of Indian robotics researchers and educators has grown from just a handful to several hundred skilled professionals working in industry, higher education, and energy organizations.
