This page seems to explain the benefits of using ROS fairly well:

As a company producing a robot, ROS has a few major benefits:

  • Increased developer productivity through modular design and reusability
  • It's a good way to provide a user-facing API, if you want users to write programs which run on your robot.
  • Permissive licensing
