They can assist in material handling, product inspection & packaging, labeling, and testing. The demand for industrial robots across major application segments such as automotive and electrical and consumer electronics combined with its increasing usage across other sectors.

The global industrial robotics market is estimated to account for US$ 69.1 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.

Market Dynamics- Drivers

  1. Increasing demand for automation as labor gets expensive is expected to drive growth of the global industrial robotics market during the forecast period

Emerging economies such as India and China are highly labor incentive and has witnessed a rise in labor costs. As a result of this, it is becoming more economically viable to opt for automation. According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, the average wage per hour in countries such as India has increased significantly from US$ 3.5 in 2007 to US$ 5.1 in 2014. Increasing conversion rate and currency fluctuations have also impacted the overall market, resulting in increased labor costs as labor cost is directly linked with inflation. Hence there is a huge demand for industrial automation so that these industries can maintain productivity and cost-efficiency. Therefore, these factors are expected to drive growth of the global industrial robotics market during the forecast period.

  1. Access to new industries and adoption of robotics in SMEs is expected to propel the global industrial robotics market growth over the forecast period

Previously, robotics was mainly related to heavy manufacturing such as the automotive and energy industries. However, over the years, the advent of precision robotics along with miniaturization of robots has found new markets such as electronics and instrumentation. Besides the introduction of nanorobotics has allowed industrial robotics to enter industries such as healthcare, which was previously untapped. Moreover, industries such as testing and packaging have continually shown great promise and have been key industries for the industrial robotics market. Industries such as auto components, which are SME based industries, are now adopting industrial robotics. Therefore, these factors are expected to propel the global industrial robotics market growth over the forecast period.

Statistics:

APAC held dominant position in the global industrial robotics market in 2019, accounting for 54.1% share in terms of value, followed by North America and Europe respectively.

Market Dynamics- Restraints

  1. Postponement of investment due to high capital costs is expected to restrain growth of the global industrial robotics market during the forecast period

The automation requires significant investment at the beginning. According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, deploying industrial robotics would cost around 25% of the overall cost for the company. However, investors are uncertain of such high expenditure due to economic instability. Furthermore, disinvestment in many industries means there is the availability of refurbished robots, without creating substitute demand. The high cost of investment and uncertainty translates to lackluster demand for fresh robots. Therefore, these factors are expected to restrain growth of the global industrial robotics market during the forecast period.

  1. Stagnation of industrial manufacturing is expected to hamper the global industrial robotics market growth over the forecast period

Manufacturing is slowly becoming fractured and often being offshored to reduce cost and carbon footprints. Manufacturing of robots was earlier prevalent in highly industrialized countries like Japan and Germany to cater to regional demands. However, as manufacturing shifts to newer hubs, there are huge transportation costs impacting the end price. Furthermore, industrial production globally is witnessing a slowdown, and this has directly impacted the automotive industry, which is historically the largest application for industrial automation. Thus, these factors are expected to hamper the global industrial robotics market growth over the forecast period.
