Robotic sensors expected to drive the global automotive robotics market

Robotic Sensors segment is estimated to be the fastest growing segment in the automotive robotics market, by component. The major reason for this, is the additional capabilities that are brought into the automotive robots due to these sensors. These sensor-enabled robots can take smarter decisions related to the manufacturing process, and hence make the process much more easier and less time consuming. Some of the key sensory systems used in automotive robotics are vision perception sensors and force sensing.

The following are the major objectives of the study.

  • To define, describe, and forecast the automotive robotics market on the basis of product type, component, application, and region, in terms of volume (thousand/million units) and value (USD million/billion)
  • To provide detailed information about the major factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, industry-specific challenges, and burning issues)
  • To analyze opportunities for stakeholders and provide details of the competitive landscape for market leaders
  • To strategically analyze subsegments (product type and component) with respect to individual growth trends, future prospects, and contribution to the total market
  • To forecast the size of market segments with respect to four main regions (along with key countries)— namely, Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, and the Rest of the World (RoW)
  • To strategically profile key players and comprehensively analyze their strategies and core competencies
  • To track and analyze competitive developments such as joint ventures, mergers & acquisitions, new product development, and research and development (R&D) in the automotive robotics market

During this research study, major players operating in the automotive robotics market in various regions have been identified, and their offerings, regional presence, and distribution channels have been analyzed through in-depth discussions.

Such high concentration of robotics in automotive industry would limit growth potential for robot manufacturers serving primarily to automotive industry.

Key players in the market include ABB (Switzerland), FANUC Corporation (Japan), Yaskawa Electric Corporation (Japan), KUKA AG (Germany) and Kawasaki Heavy Industries (Japan). These players are increasingly undertaking mergers and acquisitions, and product launches to develop and introduce new technologies and products in the market.
