Collaborative Robot Market: Current Analysis and Forecast (2021-2027)
The global collaborative robot market was stood around US$1 billion in 2020 and is expected to showcase the double-digit growth during the forecast period (2021-2027). Increasing focus on ongoing and upcoming trends such as digitization, IoT and Industry 4.0 coupled with the rising number of automotive manufacturing plants and rapid urbanization in the region is driving the growth of the collaborative robot market. For instance: As per Statista, the degree of urban population in 2020 is increasing and expected to have an influential growth rate in the forecasted period as well. Hence, encourage the adoption of collaborative robots for different industries in urbanization region around the world. Moreover, the high Return on Investment (ROI) derived from the deployment of collaborative robots and its benefits for businesses of all sizes in terms of general competitiveness, increased production, and enhanced product quality which in turn would proliferate the market demand for cobots in projected years.
The outbreak of coronavirus pandemic in 2020 has adversely impacted the market share of collaborative robots. The restriction imposed across the globe on travel and shutdown of all the industrial and commercial activities, manufacturing industries, others have disrupted the demand for collaborative robots. However, robotics and automation are playing a very crucial role as the world is continuously fighting the rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in healthcare industry. In addition, industries such as automobile, and manufacturing industries where IoT, robotics solution played an important role has seen slump for a short period in 2020. For instance: China captures 27% of India’s automotive parts import and disruption in the supply-demand ecosystem has halted production process and blocked the investments and cash delays.
Universal Robots, FANUC, ABB, Techman Robot, KUKA, Doosan Robotics, Denso, YASKAWA, Precise Automation, Rethink Robotics, MABI Robotic, FrankaEmika, Comau , F&P Robotics , Stäubli etc, are some of the prominent players operating in the Global Collaborative Robot Market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.
Insights Presented in the Report
