Executive Summary
The advent of SLAM technology can be traced back to the 1980s when it was first mentioned in a research paper.Since then significant application based developments in SLAM technology have taken place, especially in the past two decades.

The SLAM technology first came into limelight when self-driving cars, STANLEY and JUNIOR won the DARPA Grand Challenge and ranked second in the DARPA Urban Challenge in 2005.Both the cars used SLAM technology for localization and mapping of their environment.

Since then, the technology has been used in plethora of applications including self-driving cars, AR/VR kits, and industrial robots, among others.

Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) is a technology that receives input in the form of visual data from physical world and converts the same in a form that can be understood by the machines and suitable output is produced thereafter.Before the invention of SLAM technology, the indoor machines faced the problem of localizing themselves in their surroundings and understanding map of the environment where they are operating.

This problem was referred to as chicken and egg problem as for the localization, it was necessary to have the maps of surrounding, and for mapping of the surroundings, localization was needed.This chicken and egg problem is effectively addressed by SLAM technology which simultaneously solves the problem of localization and mapping.

This made the technology extremely popular in the indoor platform applications.

The demand for SLAM technology is swiftly increasing among different end-users across the globe. The market is driven by number of factors such as rise in the automation across various industries, growing penetration of mapping technologies in domestic robots, and increasing number of augmented reality applications, among others.

The SLAM technology market accounted for a market value of $50.0 million in 2017 with robots platform holding the highest share.

Robots platform in the SLAM technology market accounted for the maximum share in the overall revenue generated in the year 2017. The significant share of the robots platform is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for robots across various industries. The market of SLAM technology across autonomous vehicles segment is expected to grow at a faster pace as compared with other platforms

North America is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period, closely followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World.The United States is the leading country in the SLAM technology market, globally and it is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period.

The country has the presence of several commercial and non-commercial drone camera manufacturers. Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR with China dominating the market in this region.

Some of the key players in the SLAM Technology market include: SLAMcore Limited, NavVis Gmbh, Inc., Wikitude GmbH., Dibotics, GESTALT Robotics GmbH, Parrot SA, Fetch Robotics Inc., Clearpath Robotics Inc., Aethon Inc., Apple Inc., Google LLC, and KUKA AG.
