Capture the $47 Trillion Global Robot Market!... K-Startups Expanding into the World Robot Market

- Expanding domestic and international robot markets. The global robot market is expected to grow to $53 billion by 2025.

- K-Robots are appearing one after another, knocking on overseas markets with advanced technology and competitiveness.

- Edutech ‘ALUX,' service robot ‘RGT,'  ‘XSW,' surgical robot ‘Mirae Company’

We are now in the golden age of robots. According to the International Federation of Robotics, the global robot market is expected to grow significantly, with the expectation for it to reach $53 billion (about 67 trillion won) by 2025, from the $36 billion (about 47 trillion won) recorded the previous year.

In keeping with this global trend, the domestic robot industry is also attracting attention, as the number of cases of knocking on the global market is increasing. Let’s take a look at K-startups that are expanding into overseas markets, including education, retail, and medical fields.

■ ALUX, "Leading the globalization of K-robot education"... Beginning to target markets beyond Asia, Europe, and the Americas.

ALUX, an edutech company specializing in robots, is a domestic and international education network and integrated robot education solution, and is making full-fledged overseas expansion this year. They plan to accelerate the process.

ALUX, which is showing high performance in assembly robots, coding robots, AI learning tools, and drones based on 25 patented technologies including robot design and AI education, is pioneering routes through overseas branches, participating in exhibitions, and signing local MOUs. They are strengthening their efforts to penetrate the global market. The ambition is to expand the stage from the existing Asian regions such as China, Malaysia, and Singapore to Europe and the Americas within the year.

To speed up this process, ALUX recently attracted attention by starting a documentary production project on the theme of the 'Global-Pro Robot Championship (PRC) Robot Coding Competition' (hereinafter referred to as the G-PRC competition). The documentary captures students from all over the world meeting together and becoming one through robots, and will contain content that captures their dreams and passion for robots ahead of the G-PRC competition this November. This documentary, currently under work in collaboration with the global tech media platform 'EO Studio,' is expected to be made into local language versions of the key target countries and serve as a stepping stone to strengthen overseas marketing.

The G-PRC competition is an international coding robot sports competition that ALUX has been hosting yearly since 2015. It was designed to foster coding creativity in children not only in Korea but also around the world through PROBO, ALUX's robot education product. This competition, which has been held not only in Korea but also globally, including China, Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei, has established itself as an event representing future education, with a total of over 70,000 people participating, with an average of 10,000 participants each year.

ALUX is garnering attention by making its presence known through global exhibitions. Representatively, it participated in the 'BETT SHOW,' the world's largest edutech fair, for two consecutive years where they introduced robot brand PROBOEDU's AI coding robot VINU, which received enthusiastic responses from education officials in each country. In fact, as a result of the event, discussions are underway to enter the Brazilian market, and ALUX is carrying out visible activities, such as conducting sampling of its robot education products in Switzerland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Vietnam, India, and Bulgaria.

It does not stop there. ALUX is also expanding into the overseas after-school education market. As part of this, they have signed an MOU with Nulture Studio, a Singaporean after-school education company, and are expected to achieve tangible results, such as launching local instructor training, this year.

■ RGTI enters the US with ‘Serbot,' a service robot that manages everything from installation to after-sales service, all at once.

RGTI, a service robot total solution company, has signed a contract to export SIRBOT, an autonomous robot, to large food service companies in Hawaii and Georgia, USA. Starting with this contract, RGT plans to enter the U.S. market, expand its reach, and speed up its overseas expansion.

RGT provides a total solution covering the entire process, from the development and manufacturing of serving robots to distribution and management, with 100% domestic technology. The contracted Serbot is a fully autonomous robot that recognizes terrain using a LiDAR sensor and 3D camera.

RGT, targeting the market with fast installation and after-sales service, also supports the 'Serbot 2424 System,' which guarantees installation and after-sales service within 24 hours when applying for robot introduction. In the future, they will focus their capabilities on robot research and development to become a service robot company recognized not only domestically but globally, and will expand internally and externally to expand their distribution network.

■ XYG, knocking on doors not only domestically but also overseas with its emotional coffee robot,

XYG is a startup that develops service robots based on artificial intelligence robotics technology. The company operates about 9 food retail stores nationally, using self-developed automated and unmanned solutions.

XYG plans to expand its robot cafe overseas starting this year. By simply changing the language of the system, the service can be applied to the relevant culture, so XYG expects that it will be able to enter the overseas stage as soon as possible.

Major robots developed by XYG include the barista robot ‘BARIS,' the ice cream robot ‘ARIS,' and the self-driving delivery robot ‘STORAGY.' 'BARIS' is installed in eight branches of XYG's robot collaboration cafe 'LoungeX' nationwide, and 'ARIS' is utilized at the 'LoungeX' Everland and Lotte World branches.

■ Mirae Company enters the global medical robot market with the surgical robot ‘Revo-i,’ containing innovative DNA. Mirae Company, whose primary business is manufacturing display equipment and parts, entered the surgical robot market and developed and presented its own laparoscopic surgical robot ‘Revo-i.'

Revo-i has proven its technological prowess by being introduced to Severance Hospital, a domestic tertiary general hospital. In particular, in March of last year, it was revealed that there were more than 100 cases of surgery operated using Revo-i at domestic nuclear power hospitals. Revo-i is widely used in various fields such as urology, otolaryngology, surgery, and obstetrics and gynecology, from the prostate to thyroidectomy, at the Korea Cancer Center Hospital.

Revo-i, currently active in Korea, has superior technology to existing high-priced surgical robots and plans to begin targeting the global market by increasing price competitiveness.

Revo-i is currently exported to Uzbekistan and utilized for everything from prostatectomy to partial nephrectomy, hysterectomy, and thyroidectomy. Mirae Company plans to expand its market into the Central Asian region using Uzbekistan as a bridgehead.
