Global Robot Teach Pendant Market 2017-2021
About Robot Teach Pendant
The original teach pendants were majorly cast-iron units with alphanumeric displays and various buttons. However, they have evolved to more ergonomic designs made of lightweight plastic with color touchscreens, joysticks, and fewer buttons. Robot teach pendants are portable input and operating devices used for creating programs and teaching robots. They are used in industrial applications to program and control robots that perform demanding and repetitive tasks.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global robot teach pendant market to grow at a CAGR of 7.01% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global robot teach pendant market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from new sales of robot teach pendants.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Robot Teach Pendant Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global robot teach pendant market: ABB, FANUC, KUKA, Omron Adept Technologies, and Yaskawa Motoman.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Comau, DENSO Robotics, Epson America, Festo, Intelitek, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Nachi Robotic Systems, Seiko, Stäubli International, and Yamaha Robotics.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increase in adoption of industrial robots in developing countries. The economic boom in APAC has stimulated the growth in industrialization and manufacturing in developing countries, such as India and China. Industrial robots are expected to assume the role of a skilled laborer, to increase precision in executing functions, such as welding, cutting, and assembly, in the forecast period.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is development of next-generation robots. Many R&D activities in robotics focus on improvements in technologies, such as motion control, gripping, navigation, perception manipulation, mechatronics, and drives, to ensure efficiency in applications, such as loading and material handling. These belong to the first generation of robotics technology, and over the last two decades, constant R&D has widened the business potential of players implementing them.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is threat from alternative programming methods. Programming of industrial robots is carried out by majorly using three approaches— on-line programming method, off-line programming method, and lead through method. Since on-line programming involving teach pendants is a time-consuming approach and requires good pose repeatability by the robot, off-line programming method is often preferred by end-users.
