According to the study “Industrial Robots for Machinery Industry: Global Market 2016-2022”, industrial robots are deployed from the fabrication and pressing of parts to the painting of body components, assembling, and inspection of finished machinery. Multiple industrial robots are used to streamline every step of the machinery production process. With manoeuvrable options, long reach arms, flexible automated industrial robots perform a vast variety of functions in all industries. Manufactures of industrial robots are developing manipulation software to enhance the capacity of the robots, system integrators and OS platform developers. Articulated robots, cartesian robots, SCARA robots, cylindrical robots, delta robots, polar robots and parallel robots are the different types of robots that are deployed across various industries around the world. Industrial robots are deployed for material handling, welding, soldering, assembling, disassembling, cutting, milling, dispensing and painting.
Machinery industry is a part of heavy industry that produces a range of products from power tools, various types of machines and other equipments required for industries. The various other machine equipment Majority of the manufacturers within the machinery industry are known as machine factories. Machines are manufactured for multiple businesses such as mining, construction, agriculture, electricity, public utility machines, a wide range of supporting equipment, kitchen appliances, refrigerators, washers, dryers, steel equipment, logistics equipment, health equipment, weapons, heavy or light automotives and many more.
All the industrial robots deployed within the machinery industry are designed and programmed to perform dangerous, dirty and/or repetitive tasks with consistent precision and accuracy. Multiple models of robots are designed which can handle huge payloads, process manipulations, reach distances and number of axes of travel (up to six) of their jointed arm are the common distinguishing characteristics. All the functions of industrial robots are a combination of programming software, automation and controls. Therefore, industrial robots can operate around the clock throughout the year, with hazardous materials and challenging environment. Deployment of industrial robots increases productivity and profitability with the advanced robotic technology.
Geographically, the global market for industrial robots is spread across the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of world (RoW). North America, China, Japan, Germany, South Korea, and Mexico countries are deploying more number of robots due to industrialization and demand for more machinery in multiple sectors. However, Asia-Pacific accounts for a major share in industrial robots category due to increasing sales of machinery and tremendous revenue. Within Asia-Pacific market, China and Southeast Asian countries are bolstering the growth in industrial robots market and this trend will continue over the next few years. Global leading manufacturers of industrial robots are ABB, KUKA, Fanuc, Yaskawa Electric Corp., Toshiba Machine, Comau, Kawasaki Robotics, Epson Robotics Staubli International AG, Omron, RoboGroup T.E.K. Ltd., and Yamaha Robotics.
Almost all the manufacturing facilities around the globe have replaced human workforce with industrial robots to survive the ever growing global competitive environment within machinery industries. Evolution in technology coupled with the need to refurbish the existing global manufacturing facilities is expected to drive the market for industrial robots. Major drawbacks within industrial robots market are huge investments required for the adoption and transformation of old systems and cyber risks due to integration of technology which drives the market vulnerable over a period of time.
