Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Industrial Robotics Market in APAC: ABB, FANUC, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, KUKA, Yaskawa Electric, and SIASUN Robot & Automation.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Adept Technologies, Epson Robotics, Honda, Mitsubishi Electric, Nachi-Fujikoshi, Staubli Robotics, and Yamaha Robotics.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “An upcoming trend is the growing use of IoT in robotics. With advances in technology, an increasing number of industries are incorporating IoT-enabled devices. The high penetration of smart devices and the use of wireless and cloud technologies are expected to change the face and mode of operation of the robots in the near future. Vendors are offering their services and control modules through smart devices and Wi-Fi technology for remote operation of industrial robots, including material handling robots. Since these devices offer more flexibility and convenience in operations, end-users prefer technology-enabled robots in factory facilities.”
According to the report, key growth driver is the rise in factory automation. A large number of companies are investing in factory automation, which includes implementation of robotics technology. Japan and China have invested heavily to automate most of their factories with high-end industrial robots. Ageing population, shrinking workforce, and immigration control are some of the major factors driving factories to automate their production process. A large number of Chinese companies are looking for substitute for laborers; hence industrial robotics have become an area of opportunity for the vendors.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the high switching cost of using industrial robots. "
