About the Cleanroom Robots Market
A cleanroom is a well-maintained environment with minimum levels of environmental pollutants such as aerosols, dusts, chemicals, and microbes. It has strict specifications about the number of particles per cubic meter and regarding particle size. It is typically used for manufacturing products, which require highly sterile and dust-free environment such as semiconductor, electrical and electronics, pharmaceutical, scientific research and biotechnology, and food and beverage among others.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global cleanroom robots market to grow at a CAGR of 5.39% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cleanroom Robots Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cleanroom robots market: ABB, FANUC, KUKA, Yamaha Robotics, and Yaskawa Electric.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Comau Robotics, Denso Robotics, Epson Robots, Kawasaki Robotics, Nachi Fujikoshi, Omron Adept Technologies, OTC Daihen, Panasonic, Pari Robotics, Reis Robotics, Staubli Robotics, Toshiba, and Universal Robots.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend which will boost market growth is the integration of IoT in robotics. The development of IoT and technological enhancements have fueled the adoption of automated technologies in industries. The high demand and use of smart devices, wireless, and cloud technology will influence the future of robots in terms of range of utility and mode of operation. With rising competition, vendors are offering attractive options, such as services and control modules, through smart devices and Wi-Fi technology for industrial robots, including cleanroom robots from remote locations.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the high requirement for contaminant-free machines and equipment. Cleanroom robots have been engineered to minimize particulate emission and are usually made of corrosive resistant materials. They are also placed below the substrate to prevent surface contamination. They have internal wiring and cabling to prevent entanglement and also subsequent particle emission. They have few mobile parts to prevent generation of particulate and dust during movements.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is the high system engineering and installation costs. Players in the industrial robotics market can make robots easier to integrate and use, which will lead to reduced costs. However, the key constraint is the high system engineering cost. This makes end-users cautious while making new investments.
