How Near is Robbie Robot?

Robotics is already a £16 billion market.

Surprisingly, 60% of market value today is in marine robotics - not industrial automation!

By the trends:

Domestic, but expensive, humanoid robots will hit the market before 2015.

Buy 2020 they'll be ubiquitous, at a price comparable to a small second family car.

By 2025, you get 'demestibots' from Tesco. High-end robots that start to match human emotional/intellectual intelligence will be used in war theatre.
