Global Spot Welding Robots Market 2018-2022
About Spot Welding Robots
Robotic spot welding, a type of resistance welding, is the most common welding application found in the manufacturing field. Spot welding robots are used to carry the spot welding operation in end-user industries. These robots deploy copper alloys for transmitting electric current to the welding point and contain a spot welding gun at the terminal point of the robot wrist, which is in place instead of an end-effector.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global spot welding robots market to grow at a CAGR of 7.70 % during the period 2018-2022.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Spot Welding Robots Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global spot welding robots market: ABB, FANUC, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Midea, and Yaskawa
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing adoption of multi-robot cells. With increasing focus on lean manufacturing, multi-robot cells, in which multiple robots are placed to accomplish the task and controlled by a single controller are gaining traction among industry players. Also, the flexibility to add a robotic arm in the workcell can further improve productivity. Running multiple robots from a single point of control assists in preventing collisions, simplifying the programming structure, and reducing integration cost.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is High operational efficiency of spot welding robots. Spot welding robots provide high operational efficiency as compared with CNC machines and manual handling of the operation.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Limited adoption of robots by SMEs. Restricted adoption of robots among SMEs is a major setback for the global spot welding robots market. The high cost associated with robot implementation and lack of flexibility to switch among the processes are the major constraint factors for SMEs.
