Modular self-reconfirming systems are autonomous kinematical machines with variable morphology. Self-reconfiguring robots readily amend their own form by rearranging the connectivity of their components, so as to adapt new circumstances, perform new tasks, or recover from damage. Modular robots are typically composed of multiple building blocks of a comparatively small repertoire, with uniform docking interfaces. The modular building blocks usually accommodate some primary structural actuated unit, and potentially extra specialized units. In terms of robot type, modular robotics has been classified into articulated modular robots, cartesian modular robots, SCARA modular robots, parallel modular robots, collaborative modular robots, other modular robots, spherical robots, and cylindrical robots. Modular robotics is broadly used in automotive, electrical & electronics, plastic & rubber & chemicals, metals & machinery, food & beverages, precision engineering & optics, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, and others industry.

Growing investments in industrial automation and increasing adoption of collaborative modular robots owing to their benefits and features are some of the key drivers contributing to the growth of the market. Complexity of modular robots with respect to their designs and controlling electronics can act as a restraint for modular robotics market. Rising adoption of robotics-as-a-service model is the key opportunity for modular robotics market. Interoperability issues and difficulty in integration of different robotic frameworks into existing facilities and address the need for safe handling of industrial-grade operations are some of the major challenges for modular robotics market.
