Industrial Robots: Technology, Business Opportunity and Brand Strength Analysis

The report finds that shipment value of the Taiwanese semiconductor manufacturing industry reached around US$8.86 billion in the fourth quarter of 2015, falling 15.9% year on year. It is projected that the industry's shipment value will stay flat at around US$8.83 billion in the first quarter of 2016.

Industrial robots have been widely applied in a broad array of industries and have lured numerous companies to set foot into this arena, including Taiwanese companies such as Foxconn, Delta, Foxlink, Shihlin Electric, Contrel Technology, Tongyou Electronic, and Advantech-LNC Technology. Recent years, several leading companies have seen aggressive investment in related technologies or M&A activities, including FANUC, ABB, KUKA, Yaskawa, Siemens, Sony, Mitsubishi, Honda, and Seiko Epson. This report provides an overview of the industrial robot technologies and thorough patent data mining results that reflect major vendors' patent deployments and technology trends. Also included are the outlook for the industrial robot market and opportunities for perspective entrants.
