Robot End-Effector Market

Robot End-Effector Market by Type (Welding Guns, Grippers, Suction Cups, Tool Changers), Applications (Handling, Assembly, Welding), Industry (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Food & Beverages, E-Commerce), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2024

Report Code: SE 7064 Apr, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[170 Pages Report] The robot end-effector market is expected to grow from USD 2.6 billion in 2019 to USD 5.7 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 16.9% during the forecast period. The modularity ensures that the grippers do not have to be changed from time to time, thereby reducing the cost of redesigning and downtime associated with its change and replacement; hence, the growing demand for modular end-effectors is the key factor driving the growth of the robot end-effector market. The increasing adoption of collaborative robots (cobots) owing to their benefits and features is another factor driving the market growth.

Robot End-Effector Market

Grippers to hold the largest market size by 2019

A gripper enables the holding and manipulation of an object that performs motions such as holding, moving, tightening, and releasing. Most gripper fingers are made from hard materials, but soft grippers are seeing increasing adoption for handling sensitive objects. Welding guns had the largest market share due to extensive use in the automotive industry but that scenario changed after 2017. Since 2018, grippers now have the largest share due to the growing popularity of electric grippers, collaborative grippers, soft grippers, and customized grippers, and this trend is expected to continue for next 5 years.

Market for handling application to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Material handling is mainly used for pelletizing, packing, picking, and unloading. End-effectors that handle dangerous goods have to be highly redundant to power outages and blackout. Similarly, end-effectors used in the food industry have to be certified as “food grade.” Increasing use of various grippers and palletizers in various industries such as electrical and electronics; metals and machinery; and food & beverages is the primary reason for handling applications registering the highest growth in the robot end-effector market.

Robot end-effector market for food & beverages industry to grow at a significant CAGR during 2019–2024

Owing to ununiformed shape, size, weight, and texture of the products, automation in the food & beverages industry is comparatively different than other industries. In the food & beverages industry, robot end-effectors are required to maintain a high degree of sanitation. Food grade stainless steel and plastics must be used to avoid any contamination due to microbiological traps or water stagnation. Increasing automation across various stages of the supply chain in the food & beverages industry is contributing to the significant growth.

Robot End-Effector Market

Market in APAC is expected to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period

The electrical and electronics industry in APAC is the most important driver for robot end-effectors owing to rising demand for electronic products around the world. Components such as computer chips, battery, and displays that are small and sensitive need to be handled with high speed and high precision. In the developing APAC countries, the food and packaging industry has not yet reached maturity, which represents an opportunity for the growth of the robot end-effector market. Large e-retailers are also expected to use end-effectors for warehousing on a large scale in the following years. Hence, APAC will continue to have the highest growth rate and market share compared to other regions during the forecast period.

Key Market Players

Major companies in the robot end-effector market are Zimmer Group (Germany), Schunk (Germany), Schmalz (US), Destaco (US), Robotiq (Canada), Applied Robotics (US), EMI Corp. (US), Festo (Germany), KUKA (Germany), Soft Robotics (US), Tünkers (Germany), ATI Industrial Automation (US), ABB (Switzerland), Weiss Robotics (Germany), Piab AB (Sweden), KUKA (Germany), FIPA (Germany), SMC (Japan), IPR (Germany), IAI (Japan), JH Robotics (US), Bastian Solutions (US), and RAD (US). Apart from these, OnRobot (Denmark) and IPR (Germany) are few of the emerging companies in the robot end-effector market.

Zimmer group is a global player in EOAT technology with decades of experience serving the automotive, electronics, consumer goods, tooling machines, foundry and plastic industries. The EAOT devices are termed as ‘handling technology’ with an extensive variety of 3000 products under this portfolio. In 2000, the company was DIN ISO 9001 certified with ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 certification awarded in the subsequent years. The grippers offered by the company are integrated with robots offered by top industrial robot manufacturers. The company adopts product launches as it key business strategy. For instance, in October 2016, the company introduced next generation human-robot collaboration (HRC) robot grippers in collaboration with Universal Robots (Denmark) providing an ISO/TS 15066 certified system for shared workspace for human and robot.

Recent Developments

  • In February 2019, SCHUNK launched intelligent gripping system for integrated battery cell inspection. The new intelligent gripper enables flexible handling, identification, and inspection of Li-ion cells, in a single compact module.
  • In January 2019, Festo launched adaptive shape gripper, DHEF. The silicone cap of the gripper can fold itself over and grip objects of any shape.  This creates a firm and form-fitting hold. This unique and innovative product is expected to help the company to differentiate itself from the other players in the market.
  • In January 2019, Robotiq announced the opening of its first European office in Lyon, France to better coordinate with its European distributors and partners.

Key Questions Addressed in the Report

  • As new applications and opportunities emerge in sectors such as warehouses, material handling, packing etc, will the Top 4 vendors continue to dominate or will any new entrants with superior technical knowhow grab their market share?
  • In case of electronic supply chain, where would be the faster adoption of industrial robots be, In downstream players such as EMS or ODM or upstream companies such as semiconductor or flat panel producers?
  • With applications of AI & Data Analytics, Robotic production lines have transformed to be flexible in terms of reacting to End-Market demand, which in turn is helping end user companies to reduce risk of product shortage or inventory pile-up. Which software vendors with their proprietary solutions are becoming preferred solution providers and why?
  • From 2011, US and Europe have been constantly losing market share to china in attracting annual shipments, will the trend reverse as on-shoring picks up and which native companies are set to benefit the most and how?
  • Robotics OEM are enjoying operating margins in the range of 20–25% with entry into the electronics or any latent industries, will the margins get boost or will be compensated by R&D expenditure?
