Industrial Robotics Market by Type (Articulated, Cartesian, SCARA, Parallel, Collaborative Robots), Industry (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Metals & Machinery, Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023

“Industrial robotics market projected to grow at a significant rate between 2017 and 2023”
The industrial robotics market is expected to grow from USD 38.11 billion in 2016 to USD 71.72 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 9.60% during the forecast period. The increase in investments for automation in various industries, such as automotive; electrical and electronics; and metals and machinery, and the growing demand for industrial robots from small and medium-scale enterprises in developing countries are the key factors driving the market. However, high overall installation cost for low-volume production applications is the key factor restraining the growth of the industrial robotics market.

“Market for collaborative robots expected to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period”
Traditional industrial robots held a major share of the industrial robotics market in 2016. However, the market for collaborative robots is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2023. As collaborative robots are cost-effective and best suited for small and medium-scale manufacturing industries, the adoption rate of collaborative robots is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.

“Market for SCARA robots to grow at a significant rate between 2017 and 2023”
The traditional industrial robots market for SCARA robots is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. Considering the benefits offered by SCARA robots, such as high accuracy even for high-speed applications, such as pick and place, palletization, and assembly, and better price-to-performance ratio than Cartesian and parallel robots, the rate of adoption of SCARA robots is expected to grow significantly for high-speed applications during the forecast period.

“APAC held largest share of industrial robotics market in 2016”
Out of the 4 major regions considered, APAC held the largest share of the industrial robotics market in 2016. The national plans such as “Made in China 2025” and “Make in India” by developing countries in APAC and the high rate of adoption of industrial robots to achieve factory automation are the main factors driving the industrial robotics market in the APAC region.
