NEW YORK, Dec. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global industrial robot market is expected to reach 34.71 billionin 2024, at a CAGR of 8.9%. Key factors attributing to the growth of the market includes: growing need for automation in non-conventional areas, increasing demand for industrial robots from small and medium enterprises in developing countries, and rising labor wages. Moreover, advancements in artificial intelligence and rapid expansion of automotive industry are further augmenting the development of industrial robots. Additionally, business expansion initiatives and rising adoption of robotics in manufacturing sector will also provide more opportunities in the industrial robotics market during the forecast period.
Industrial robots are the multipurpose re-programmable machines that were primarily used in electrical and electronics, and automotive industries. Demand for industrial robots has accelerated due to ongoing innovations in technical upgrading. These robots are in demand due to various factors such as their ability to coordinate and collaborate effectively with multiple users. Additionally, deployment of industrial robots aids in increasing profits by reducing production time, and results in higher quality product. Furthermore, rising labor costs and shrinking working-age population have also led to the adoption of the robot-driven industrial strategy.
Technological advancements boosting the market growth
Industrial robots are extensively used in an attempt to substitute physical work. With the evolution of technology, portable and robust robots have been introduced without compromising on versatility and accuracy. These robots are extremely accurate, and portable coordinate measuring machines (CMM) that are used to build products, optimize processes, and deliver solutions by measuring quickly and precisely. Automation helps in boosting the overall economic growth coupled with enhanced productivity. According to international federation of robotics, 74 robot units per thousand employees is the new average density in the manufacturing industries.
Key findings from the report:
- On the basis of types, collaborative robot segment is likely to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to cost-effectiveness and growing adoption of these robots by SMEs. However, the articulated robot segment is projected to account the largest market share in 2017, and is expected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. The growth is attributed to their various applications in end-use industries.
- Based on End-use, automotive industry held the major market share in 2017, and is expected to retain its dominance over 2018-2024. The growth in this sector is attributed to the rising investments in manufacturing, and increasing demand for passenger cars that requires robots for automation solutions. Furthermore, electrical and electronics industry is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
