About Industrial Robot Cell
A robot cell is a complete system that includes a robot, a controller, and peripherals such as part positioners and safety environment. They are also referred to as robot work cells. It is estimated that the continued development of the robot technology along with miniaturization of sensors will contribute to the reduction in prices of robots, and trigger a rapid surge in sales of industrial as well service robots during the forecast period.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global industrial robot cell market to grow at a CAGR of 10.35% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report

The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Industrial Robot Cell Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global industrial robot cell market: ABB, FANUC, Genesis Systems Group, RobotWorx, and Yaskawa Motoman.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Amtec Solutions Group, Applied Manufacturing Technologies, Automated Technology Group, Concept Systems, Evomatic AB, Fitz-Thors Engineering, Flexible Automation, IPG Photonics, JH Robotics, JR Automation Technologies, KC Robotics, Mesh Engineering, Mexx Engineering, Motion Controls Robotics, NIS, PAA Automation, Phoenix Control Systems, Phoenix Control Systems, Remtec Automation, and United Robotics.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing adoption of IIoT. The development of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and technological enhancements have fueled the adoption of robotics in industries. The high demand and use of smart devices, wireless, and cloud technology will influence the future of industrial robot cells in terms of the 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 collaborative robots, from remote locations.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increase in penetration of preconfigured robot cells. The market will also gain traction as it is expected that vendors will improve their offerings of preconfigured robot cells, especially for applications such as welding. Preconfigured robot cells are offered by both robot vendors and system integrators. They are generally delivered on a superstructure base that can be lifted and delivered with a forklift, with minimal efforts required in installation or mounting.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost of adopting robot cells. System integrators need to work on devising methods to reduce any loss of time or money, which is incurred by end-users in availing the services offered by them for deployment of industrial robot cells. Integration of robot cells involves procedures, such as the signing of contracts and legalities, competitive bidding, and evaluations, before the robot cells are implemented and used. It is essential that vendors in the market come up with innovations which ensure that the pre-purchase processes are cost-effective and less time-consuming for end-users.
