Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Industrial Robotics Market in the US 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Industrial Robotics Market in the US: ABB, Adept Technology, FANUC, KUKA, Yaskawa, and Competition Financials.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Epson Robotics, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Electric, Staubli Robotics, and Yamaha Robotics.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Collaborative robots are the new industrial robots designed to operate collaboratively with humans. They are used for lightweight operations, such as placing products in trays or cases, to heavy-duty applications that include depalletizing and palletizing. Advanced sensors equipped with these robots sense the presence of a person and his location, which allows the robots to slow down or stop for security. When a person moves away, the robot automatically resumes normal operation.”

According to the report, industrial robots are flexible, and can be easily programmed to adapt to new production lines without any training. The margin of error is less, and the functioning of these robots can be extended for a longer duration with minimal supervision. The robots produce defect-free products, and reduce product failure and wastage. They do not require additional expenditures on healthcare, insurance, and income. These robots require minimum heating and lighting, which reduces energy consumption considerably. The adoption of these robots allows companies to minimize direct and overhead costs.

Further, the report states that the deployment of robots requires high initial investment. Hence, restricts the market growth.
