Global SCARA Robots Market - Market Research 2015-2019

About SCARA robot

A SCARA robot is a horizontally configured robot and is capable of performing the horizontal movements. Since this robot does not have rotary joints, its movements are restricted to the horizontal axis. This robot can help accelerate cycle times, increase throughput, and eliminate bottlenecks in industries. The modern SCARA robot is user-friendly with fewer backend-programming requirements. It helps in vertical operations such as inserting pins in holes without binding. Also, it has certain advances such as high speed, ruggedness, and durability; therefore, it is preferred by industries, such as electronics and electrical and food and beverages, for assembling, picking and placing, and loading and unloading.

Technavio forecast the global SCARA robots market to grow at a CAGR of 5.60%, in terms of unit shipments, during 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global SCARA Robots Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global SCARA Robots Market: Adept, Epson Robots, Kuka, Toshiba and Yamaha Robotics

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABB, Denso Wave, ST Robotics, Kawasaki Robotics, Yaskawa, and Mitsubishi.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The rising demand for mass production at a single stretch in automotive industry has led to the widespread use of SCARA robots. These machines can pick-and-place, load and unload the automotive components delicately with high levels of accuracy and precision. The increasing installation of miniaturized components in the automotive industry has also led to the adoption of SCARA robots in this sector, aiding its market growth.”

According to the report, SCARA robots are small, can operate at a high speed, and require minimum space to operate. They are ideal for applications that need utmost precision and speed, such as handling delicate components. The technology has a uniform control concept across the entire range, and enables fast commissioning and simple maintenance. SCARA robots are constructed to reduce wear and tear and this helps extend maintenance intervals. Concurrently, the brakes save the axes from sagging after the robot is turned off.

Further, the report states that Industries in America and EMEA are adopting cartesian and articulated robots for operations, which cannot be completed using SCARA robots. This limited usage of SCARA applications creates fewer end-users in these regions.
