According to the study “Industrial Robots for Metal Industry: Global Market 2016-2022”, robots are embedded with technological knowledge to upshot precision, intelligence and endless energy levels. These key factors make the robots perfect employees for a wide range of jobs around the globe that humans cannot afford to perform. All the industrial robots deployed within the global metal industry are technically programmed, embedded with safe working conditions, and compact in size. The combination of manual programming and subprograms within the industrial robots helps in delivering more sophisticated services. Grippers are often embedded in industrial robots deployed within the metal industry to avoid industrial accidents. All the industrial robots used in the mining industry are either fixed at a place for specific operations or move on the industry floor as programmed.
The need for refurbishment within the global metal industries has led to deployment of well programmed industrial robots. They are perfect for improving the working environment inside the metal industries and handle heavy assignments. Industrial robots optimise the production with their speed, continuous operating systems and operate multiple machineries with high precision for uniform results. Metal manufacturers are constantly upgrading the industrial automation processes by installing industrial robots across all jobs due to ease of operations. This trend has led to increasing deployment of advanced technological robots and tremendous revenue.
Industrial robots in a metal industry are used for material handling, welding, soldering, assembling, disassembling, cutting, milling, dispensing, painting, and other operations. Material handling, welding, cutting and assembling operations extensively use industrial robots. Robots are the key to Industry 4.0 evolution within countries such as U.S., China, Japan, Germany, South Korea, and Mexico. Articulated robots, Cartesian robots, SCARA robots, and other robots (cylindrical robots, delta robots, polar robots, parallel robots, etc.) are the various types of industrial robots deployed by metal industries. Articulated robots are extensively used within the metal industry, thereby, accounting for more share among other industrial robotics deployed in metal industry. Geographically, global industrial robotics market is spread across the Americas, Asia-Pacific, EMEA and rest of the world. Asia-Pacific region is the largest contributor within the global industrial robotics market, followed by Europe and North America.
All the leading players within the industrial robots market compete intensively based on quality, durability, reliability, and technological innovations. Huge investments are made in R&D sector to improve robots with new technologies, superior quality of robot construction, and more operational skills. The leading players within the global industrial robotics market are ABB Ltd., Fanuc Corp., Kuka AG, Yaskawa Electric Corp., Kawasaki Robotics, Epson Robotics, Rockwell Automation, Comau, Staubli International AG, Omron, RoboGroup T.E.K. Ltd., Yamaha Robotics, Reis Robotics and ST Robotics. Evolution of fourth industrial revolution is coupled with Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Therefore, majority of the global industrial robotics manufacturers are incorporating advanced technologies such as asset management, equipment, process efficiency optimization, and cost reduction. Cloud computing is used to record data flow from industrial robots and external devices for more efficient productivity and storage.
Almost all the metal industries in the world have replaced human workforce with industrial robots to survive the ever growing global competitive environment. It was observed that there is a continuing deployment of advanced industrial robots in the metal industry due to larger production scale and increasing demand. Major drawback within the industrial robots market is that huge investments are 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. Considering multiple factors, global market for industrial robots for metal industry will witness a drastic growth over the next few years.
