The Associated PressMay 9, 2022

The “Industrial Robotics Market by Type, Industry, and Function: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2030” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global industrial robotics market was $37,876.0 million in 2020, and is expected to reach $116,848.7 million by 2030, with a CAGR of 11.7% from 2021 to 2030.

Industrial robot is a type of machine that has its own control system and is not operated manually through machines. Industrial robots are reprogrammable, multipurpose, axis free, and have physical alteration. The reprogrammable feature of robots helps in performance under various environmental conditions and as per the usage over the industry, while the multipurpose feature helps in adapting to various applications and working automatically into the axis that defines the motion or movement of the robot.

Industrial robots are generally classified into cylindrical robot, parallel robot, articulated robot, SCARA robot, and linear robot. Linear robot includes the gantry and the cartesian robot. The cartesian robots are those whose arms feature three types of prismatic joints and whose robot axes are coincident with reference to the cartesian coordinate system. SCARA robot has two rotary joints that are parallel. The articulated robot has minimum three rotary joints, whereas in case of cylindrical robot, the axes form the cylindrical coordinate system. Industrial robots are used for different industrial applications like packaging, labelling, product inspection, picking, testing, assembling, painting, and welding of different components.

Global industrial production output has plummeted in recent years. Industrial robots have witnessed sluggish demand in conventional industries such as automobiles and heavy engineering. However, increase in need for automation in non-conventional areas, such as micro-electronics, has fostered the market growth. Hence, an auxiliary channel utilizing industrial robotics has surfaced in recent years. The heavy engineering sector drives the demand for industrial robotics.

The global industrial robotics market is impacted by several factors such as usage of industrial robotics in the manufacturing industry, increase in demand for automation activities in the industry, decrease in custom duties, and evolution of robotics & AI industry. Furthermore, high cost of industrial robotics solutions hinder the market growth.
