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% between 2017 and 2023. 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 robotics systems from small and medium-scale enterprises in developing countries are the key factors driving the market.

Among all the major industries where industrial robotics systems are adopted, the industrial robotics market for the metals and machinery industry is expected grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. The growing demand for industrial robots in sectors such as agriculture, packaging, material handling, and machine tools for achieving automatization is the key factor expected to propel the growth of the industrial robotics market for the metals and machinery industry during the forecast period.

As of 2016, traditional industrial robots held a major share of the industrial robotics market. 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.

Articulated robots are expected to hold a major share of the traditional industrial robots market, and the market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. With the increased payload capacity, work envelope, reliability, and speed, articulated robots are being adopted for various industrial applications, such as welding, painting, assembly, packaging, palletizing, depalletizing, machine tending, sealing, gluing, cutting, cleaning, deburring, die casting, grinding, polishing, material handling, case packing, pick and place, pre-machining, and press brake tending. The high rate of adoption of articulated robots for a myriad of applications is the key factor driving the articulated robots market.

In terms of geography, APAC is expected to hold the largest share of the industrial robotics market between 2017 and 2023. The key driver the industrial robotics market is the low cost of production, enabling various manufacturers to set up their manufacturing units in APAC, especially in countries such as China, Korea, and India. Automating the plant capabilities is another key trend adopted by manufacturers, which has boosted the demand for industrial robots in the APAC region.

Industrial Robotics Market

Industrial robots have been on the rise and are set to be one of the fastest-growing areas of the robotics industry. Despite the high rate of adoption of industrial robots in small and medium-scale enterprises, there still exist restraints for the adoption of industrial robots for low-volume production. As industrial robots are designed as per the requirements of the application, it is an inevitable process of modifying or reconfiguring the industrial robots every time the application is changed. The cost of reconfiguration and reinstallation of robots is high for low-volume production. Hence, the high overall installation cost for low-volume production applications is the key factor that hinders the growth of the market.

FANUC Corporation has strengthened its united efforts to attain stability and prosperity in its business as well as deepen the trust of customers in its products and services. It implements its slogan of “Reliable/Predictable/Easy to Repair” in product development to reduce the downtime of its customers and improve operability. In the face of the slow recovery of the Chinese, Japanese, and European markets, FANUC has come up with the strategy of establishing business divisions for each product line consisting of factory automation (FA), robots, and RoboMachines. FANUC has been consistently focusing on R&D to maintain its competitive edge. In 2015, it introduced new products such as CR-35Ia, M 710iC/12L, and M-710iC/45M. FANUC continues to enhance its productivity in manufacturing through robotization—i.e., it manufactures all of its products in highly automated factories.
