Global Part Transfer Robots Market 2017-2021
About Part Transfer Robots
Part transfer robots are used in the movement of components from one place to another in manufacturing industries. These robots can handle components of various sizes and shapes. Vendors supply part transfer robots with a payload ranging from 2 kg to 1,300 kg. Vision system is integrated as an add-on feature in part transfer robots. The global part transfer robots market has been segmented on the basis of the type of robots used in part transfer applications and end-user industries that utilize these robots.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global part transfer robots market to grow at a CAGR of 12.50% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global part transfer robots market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Part Transfer Robots Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global part transfer robots market: Yaskawa Motoman, FANUC, ABB, and KUKA.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Kawasaki Heavy Industries, EPSON Robots, Apex Automation and Robotics, Omron Adept Technologies, DENSO Robotics, TM Robotics, and Staubli International.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is emergence of collaborative robots. Large industrial robots work within fences to ensure the safety of workers while performing heavy payload lifting related works. Part transfer robots are extensively used in such applications. Vendors are putting in tremendous efforts to enhance the collaboration capabilities of these robots, thereby increasing their adoption among industry players.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is ensure safety of workforce. The adoption of part transfer robots ensures the safety of workforce and reduces industrial accidents when compared with manual handling of processes. The circumstances under which part transfer activities are undertaken are not safe, especially in foundry and die casting activities that involve molten metal. These types of activities created the need for robots in part handling activities. Moreover, handling of delicate materials, such as glass, automobile sheets, car, paints, and woods, may cause injuries to humans, whereas robots can handle such materials with the help of grippers and EOAT easily and can support transport activities carefully.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost associated with part transfer robots. Robots include various high-tech hardware components, such as smart sensors, controllers, motor, and software, for integrating all the hardware components that increase the associated cost considerably. In addition, after-sales services are also included, which add to the existing high cost. A typical part transfer robot will cost around $80,000, and that may further increase if any customization is required by end-user according to the operational requirement.
