Global Robotic Flexible Washer Market 2017-2021
About Robotic Flexible Washer
Since a long time, manufacturers and industrial users have faced the problem of grit, waste, and metal parts left behind after machining processes. The unwanted materials demanded cleaning and washing to keep the industrial floor space tidy, thus preventing them from harming personnel or assets, and ensuring the final product quality. Manual cleaning of such metal parts or components consumed a considerable amount of time and cost, and also resulted in the loss of productivity. With industries facing the issue of rising labor costs and productivity concerns, automated washing has emerged as a major necessity over the years.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global robotic flexible washer market to grow at a CAGR of 5.44% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Robotic Flexible Washer Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global robotic flexible washer market: ABB, BvL Oberflächentechnik, Cleaning Technologies Group, Dürr-Ecoclean, Fives and Valiant.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ADF Systems, Clean Energy Systems, Dalian Modern Auxiliary Machinery Development and Manufacture, Dynamic Robotic Solutions, ELWEMA Automotive, FANUC, Harry Major Machine, ICOM, I.T.F. Group, Maschinenbau Silberhorn, MTM Clean Solutions, PROCECO, Sugino and Tecnofirma.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is developments in R&D. Owing to an increasing adoption rate of robotic flexible washers by end-users, robot vendors and manufacturers are focusing more on the technological R&D front to provide higher quality and efficient products. Most robotic flexible washer vendors are developing a special grade of robotic arms equipped with advanced sensors to automatically detect and carry out the cleaning and washing process instantly.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increased focus on positive cash flow. Though robotic implementation entails a significant high one-time investment, in the long run businesses can generate a positive cash flow and achieve a better return on investment (ROI). With advanced capabilities, robots can help industries minimize their labor cost and focus on achieving higher operational excellence. Semi-skilled labor shortage is becoming imminent with time, resulting in an increased cost of hiring, training, and retaining such employees within the industry. On the other hand, robots help businesses to overcome this issue and achieve a higher profit during the lifecycle of a project. For instance, let's draw a comparative study between a medium-sized robot of 100 kg payload capacity and a manual labor employed for the same application.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is switching costs. Though a robotic flexible washer generates better ROI in a short duration, the adoption process involves the end-user to make substantial investments. The switching cost can be higher and acts as a major obstacle for the end-users to implement these robotic units in their production capacities. In addition, higher switching cost and regular maintenance/repair activities can have an adverse impact on the daily production schedule, thereby affecting the product output. As washing and cleaning robots are an integral part of the automation requirements in industries, replacement of a robot may lead to serious implications for the related production line. These factors tend to prevent end-users from a wide scale deployment of robotic flexible washers in their production/manufacturing facilities.
