Global Heavy Duty Robot Platform Market 2017-2021
About Heavy Duty Robot Platform
Heavy duty robot platforms are mobile platforms that make use of sensors, visual systems, and steering and positioning systems to support mobile navigation. These robots possess a communication network that links them to the operator for controlling movement. These mobile platforms have a payload capacity of greater than 35 lbs and are deployed in rugged terrain only. Heavy duty robot platforms are equipped with advanced electronic and mechanical components, quantitatively segmented by application, solution, and geography.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global heavy duty robot platform market to grow at a CAGR of 16.51% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Heavy Duty Robot Platform Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global heavy duty robot platform market: Clearpath Robotics, DFRobot, Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR), and SuperDroid Robots.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is handling different workstations. Heavy duty robot platforms are developed to carry out operations that cannot be handled efficiently through manual effort. Defense and mining applications involve multiple workstations that require intensive coordination for seamless execution of applications.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is rising cost of manual labor. With the rise in aging population, the availability of the labor for exhaustive applications has minimized, especially in countries such as China and Japan, making it difficult for end-users to perform operations efficiently. Defense, mining, and agricultural applications involve critical processes that lead to uncertain events. In addition, due to the risk involved, procuring manpower becomes a challenge. However, to maintain the continuity of performing hazardous applications, heavy duty robot platforms are incorporated.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is implementation cost of heavy duty robot platform. Heavy duty robot platforms are mainly used for rough terrains and environmental conditions, thus increasing the cost of implementation. These platforms are deployed in hazardous and exhaustive applications to maintain continuity in operations, preventing breakdown, and ensuring speed. To maintain the continuity of operations, heavy duty robot platforms need to be regularly monitored for preventive maintenance and refurbishment when required.
