Technological advancements and decreasing costs are making industrial robots more affordable to SMEs and are enabling seamless integration and programming. Shortage of labor and increasing manufacturing requirements is driving the need and acceptance for automation. Rising penetration of collaborative robots in various industries is another factor driving the market. The objective of the report is to define, describe, and forecast the market size based on type, payload, application, industry, and region.

Traditional industrial robots to hold a larger market share in 2019

Traditional industrial robots or manufacturing robots such as articulated robots, delta robots, and Cartesian robots have been in the market for more than 50 years. In comparison, collaborative robots have only started to gain market share during the last decade. The automotive, electronics, and metal industries account for the major clients for the deployment of traditional industrial robots due to their high volume of production. As long as these industries continue to thrive, traditional industrial robots will hold a majority share of the market. Collaborative robots, simply do not have the speed, accuracy, reach, and payload capacity when compared to traditional industrial robots and, therefore, are not the optimal choice in many cases.

Industrial robotics market for processing application to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period

As less number of workers are inclined to perform hazardous jobs in processing such as grinding and milling, manufacturers are looking into automation. With advances in software, force/torque sensors, and end-effectors, manufacturers are heavily automating these tasks using robots. Repetitive and strenuous tasks such as surface polishing can be automated for consistent results. Advances in features such as wear and tear compensation of tools are enabling easier programming and deployment of robots for such tasks. Automation in processing applications will significantly minimize the exposure to harmful particulates such as metal dust to factory workers.

Industrial robotics market in APAC is expected to maintain the highest share during 2019–2024

Although APAC held the largest share in 2018, it lost its share to other regions compared to the previous year. A decrease in sales of industrial robots in countries like China due to the falling demand from the automotive sector and the effects of the US-China trade war is mainly responsible for the slowdown. As a result, major industrial robot manufacturers posted a lower than expected growth and revenue for the year ending 2018. However, APAC remains a significant market for industrial robots and is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period.

Industrial Robotics Market : Market Dynamics

Driver: Growing demand for collaborative robots across all industry segments

Collaborative robots enable humans and robots to work together effectively in open or uncaged environments. By using collaborative robots, a human operator and robot can be engaged together in the same process or the operator can simultaneously handle other tasks that might better be solved by a person. The ISO 10218 and ISO/TS 15066 technical specifications define the standards for the design of collaborative robots. Collaborative robots are designed with safety in mind so that there is no risk of injuries and damages. The absence of cages reduces the space required for deploying robots. Collaborative robots are becoming more affordable and easier to program for novice users. For instance, Universal Robots (Denmark) provides the UR+ platform to enable users to program the robot and use various robot end effectors, vision systems, and add-on software from other manufacturers, including Robotiq (Canada), Schunk (Germany), PIAB (Germany), OnRobot (Denmark), Cognex (US), and Energid (US). The peripherals and software offered by these companies are UR+ certified to minimize compatibility issues with robots manufactured by Universal Robots (Denmark).

Restraint: High cost of deployment, especially for SMEs

A robot automation project can be challenging, especially for companies with no prior experience. High capital expenditure is required, not only for the purchase of the robot, but also for integration, programming, and maintenance. In some cases, a custom integration may be required, which can further drive up the overall cost. Companies may not always have the necessary space and infrastructure for deployment of robots. As SMEs are generally engaged in low-volume production, return on investment (ROI) can be a challenge. The existence of companies involved in seasonal or inconstant production schedules further exemplifies the issue. Fast-changing consumer preferences will require frequent reprogramming of robots as products have to be updated yearly on an average. Over-automation can also be problematic. For instance, the US automotive industry initially employed a higher degree of automation compared to Japanese counterparts. This led to cost overruns, as product lines and consumer demand quickly changed over time and many robots became unnecessary or obsolete.

Opportunity: Increasing automation in the electronics industry

For many years, the automotive sector has been the primary driver of robot sales for manufacturing activities. This dominance is shifting rapidly. As per our findings, the growth of the industrial robotics market for the electronics industry is now higher than for the automotive industry. In a few years, robot automation is expected to become a profitable proposition for the electronics industry with increasingly tight profit margins. Customizability is becoming a norm in this industry. The automotive industry has long made provisions in its automation process to build cars to individual requirements and preferences. However, the same has not been the case for the electronics industry, which has traditionally engaged in high volume and mass production of smartphones, laptops, PC peripherals, and printed circuit boards (PCBs).

Challenge: Interoperability and integration issues with industrial robots

Interoperability is an important function in any factory or manufacturing unit. There must exist a modular framework for both hardware and software to connect and coordinate various automation systems. The focus here is on the software side, which is used for programming, diagnosing, and monitoring. It is not uncommon for industries to use robot arms from different manufacturers. Companies may also need to reprogram robots due to a change in production and demand or to accommodate different parts such as vision systems and end effectors. It is the responsibility of the integrator, rather than the manufacturer or end user, to decide on the implementation and set up or programming of the robot. Interoperability issues present a big challenge, especially to SMEs, due to their unique requirements and lack of personnel to set up a complex automation setup.
