South Korea is the leading country in robots per 10,000-person ratio, whereas China has currently registered the highest growth rate in the same ratio. Inclination of these countries towards collaborative robots fueled with significant innovations in the technology is magnifying the market. Japan holds a major share of the market in the East Asia region. To that end, East Asia is expected to generate substantial growth opportunities in the forecast years.

Affordable Price and Multitude of Applications of Collaborative Robots Contributing to the Market Growth

The global collaborative robots market has been segmented based on the different types of payload capacities, their multiple applications, end use industry and regions such as North America, Latin America, Europe, South Asia, East Asia, Oceania, and Middle East and Africa.

  • Collaborative robots with payload capacity up to 5kg is projected to have the dominant share of growth in the upcoming years. Lightweight collaborative robots with payload capacity up to 5kg are being widely used for a range of applications. The segmental growth is followed by 5-10kg payload capacity collaborative robots.
  • On the basis of application, material handling is expected to hold a majority share of the global collaborative robots market which is implemented in a number of end-use industry. General assembly is another segment which is projected to have a fair share in the market growth.
  • Electronics and Semiconductors industry is projected to have significant share in the global collaborative robots market. Demand for high speed and precision work fulfilled by collaborative robots is benefitting the industry on a large scale.

How is the Surge in Demand for Automation in Industrial Processes to Favor the Collaborative Robots Market Growth?

As the fourth industrial revolution ‘Industry 4.0’ is set to take the entire manufacturing and supply chain by storm, industrial players are increasingly adopting efforts to increase their productivity, decline production time, and improve resource utilization through the integration of advanced technologies.

Increasing cost of labor even in traditional low-cost carrier (LCC) countries such as China and India is further encouraging manufacturing companies to adopt advanced automated technologies, especially across automotive and electronics sectors.

As collaborative robots enhance the pace of production and decline repetitive labor costs, they are increasingly gaining popularity in applications such as welding, painting, quality testing, and material handling among others, which is in turn, propelling the demand in the market.
