Impact of COVID-19 on current robot end effector market size and forecast

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, a deadly respiratory disease that originated in China, is now become a worldwide issue and has also affected the robot end effector market. Most robot end effector manufacturers have been affected by this crisis, which is expected to be a medium-term impact. This is mainly due to the temporary halt in operations of automobile companies, electrical and electronics manufacturing and metals and machinery industry across various countries across Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, South America, and RoW. As a result, market players have recorded a drop in sales.

  • For instance, the Q2 2020 revenue of the Robotics & Discrete Automation segment of ABB (Switzerland) declined 26% relative to the same period in the previous year, partly due to the impact of COVID-19. However, the situation in Q3 2020 was improved with a decline of only 3% compared to that of the same period in 2019.
  • In March 2020, the automotive companies such as SEAT (Spain), Ford (US), and Nissan (Japan) halted the production at their plants in the Spain owing to the increasing pressure from various unions to protect employees and follow government advisories. Spain being the second-largest producer of automotive vehicles in Europe with high degree of automation; the halt in the manufacturing plant disrupted the end effectors market.

Robot end effector Market Dynamics

Driver: Increasing adoption of collaborative robots (cobots) owing to their benefits and features

Due to the fast-changing nature of industries, the demand for collaborative end effectors is increasing. This scenario is observed in the consumer goods industry, specifically packaging, where the shape, size, surface, or weight of the packaging is constantly changing. A collaborative robot or a cobot is a system that is designed to work alongside humans in a shared workspace in contrast to typical industrial robots operating autonomously. It is a relatively new concept that was first drafted and initiated in 1994 and has been pioneered for actual use only in the last decade. The collaborative robot market is expected to witness a high CAGR of 42.8% between 2021 and 2026, with the presence across every major industry from automotive and electrical & electronics industries to pharmaceutical & cosmetics and food & beverage industries. There are about 42 companies developing and marketing this technology in some form or another.

Europe is estimated to the majority of the market share for these robots mainly due to strong government support promoting industry automation principles such as Industry 4.0. Industrial tasks that can be performed include, but are not limited to, pick and place, bin picking, assembly, polishing, deburring, machine tending, gluing, dispensing, and packaging. New demands in manufacturing and material handling to assist floor workers across all industries drive the need for the development and deployment of collaborative robots. Developed by Piab (Sweden), a piCOBOT is a certified powerful vacuum gripper that supports plug-and-play with seamless integration with Universal Robot’s (Denmark) robot arms and is safe to be used alongside humans; Zimmer Group (Germany) and Schmalz (Germany) introduced a modular system called MATCH to meet the various applications of industrial robots such as production and assembly. Human-robot collaboration (HRC) grippers were designed by the Zimmer Group (Germany) to work with industrial robot arms such as Yaskawa’s (Japan) Motoman Robot and Universal Robots’ (Denmark) startZ HRC grippers for robots. A Rethink Robotics (Germany) collaborative robot with a Zimmer Group (Germany) HRC gripper was designed to assist hospital personnel in monitoring and controlling the oxygen level for a COVID-19 patient. Similarly, Schmalz (Germany) introduced a modular system called MATCH in collaboration with Zimmer Group (Germany) to meet the diverse applications of industrial robots such as manufacturing and assembly, warehouse logistics, shipping, and laboratory automation.

Assuming each collaborative robot requires end effectors, the narrative has been supported in the figure below that how an increase in the patents of collaborative robots over time supports their increasing adoption and thereby are considered a driver for the robot end effector market.

Restraint : High cost of deployment of industrial robots for SMEs

Unlike large-scale industries such as automotive or electronics manufacturing, most SMEs have a low threshold for capital expenditure. They also have a low-risk appetite and have limited time before they start generating returns on their investment. The applications are very specific and are on a case-by-case basis. A glass manufacturing company, Saint-Gobain (France), needed to automate a glass polishing process that was done by hand. Robotiq programmed its torque sensor that mimicked the hand movements and pressure applied by an actual person and successfully automated the process. Many SMEs have not built their infrastructure around deploying robots and, in many cases, have to implement robots later on within the existing floor space. A German audio company, Beyerdynamic (Germany), for example, had to automate its product assembly process in the existing working space. In companies where automation is being implemented for the first time, employees may not have the technical know-how to operate, maintain, or troubleshoot these robots. Zimmer Group (Germany) is also working on a pneumatic gripper with integrated (electrically controlled) valves for Juema (Spain); Juema is a company that has been producing high-quality dolls for more than 30 years. These customized grippers can be pre-positioned, and the grip force can be readjusted as required; the component can be quickly removed from the mold wall by creating a vacuum (earlier, this task was achieved manually with pliers). This drives the cost not only from the hardware standpoint but from service and implementation as well. However, since the growth of end effector in SME applications is slowly outpacing the growth in the automotive sector, companies have started taking certain initiatives, such as Universal Robots (Denmark) and Robotiq (Canada), are now making use of advertising campaigns showcasing different use-cases and estimating payback period. Zimmer Group (Germany) has set up a division known as the Know-How Factory to solve challenging implementations of end effector and robot systems, reducing the hassle of integration for their client. However, industrial robots and automation still remain a cost-prohibitive investment for most SMEs. A single collaborative robot system can cost anywhere ranging from USD 3,000 to USD 100,000; an industrial robotic system costs more, ranging from USD 100,000 to USD 150,000. Although manufacturers have started to market low-cost versions of their end effectors, the high cost of these robots still restraints SMEs from adopting them for low volume production, which indirectly restraints the growth of the robot end effector market.

Opportunity : Growing demand for electric grippers

Pneumatic grippers, which are the most common type of grippers, provide less flexibility and control over grip forces. In the electrical & electronics and pharmaceutical & cosmetics industries, where robots are installed in cleanrooms or any other location with controlled atmospheric conditions, pneumatic systems are avoided due to the risk of air contamination. On the other hand, hydraulic grippers are not used in the food & beverage and pharmaceutical & cosmetics industries due to the risk of oil spillage in case the hydraulic lines break. Electric grippers address many of the shortcomings presented by other grippers. Initial iterations of electric grippers were slow and inefficient and could not match the gripping forces compared to others. Current-generation electric grippers, however, have the speed and strength to match their pneumatic counterparts with additional benefits. They are fully programmable, giving users finer control over speed and gripping force. A single electrical gripper can handle a wide variety of parts. Since they are electric, they also offer positional feedback and can send the status of the operation, such as jaw position, speed, or grip detection, to the control unit. Pneumatic grippers only have 2 states of operation—fully open and fully closed—but the electric counterpart can also have a partially open or closed state that can decrease cycle time during operation if programmed intelligently. Therefore, electric grippers can not only be used in industries that have strict guidelines and restrictions but also handle fragile objects such as glass due to their programmable nature. Although nearly all pneumatic end effector manufacturers offer electric grippers, the ones offered by Robotiq (Canada) also offer touchscreen GUI display in their electric grippers for ease of monitoring and troubleshooting, and Schunk (Germany) provides a servo-electric 2-finger parallel gripper.

Challenge : Interoperability issues and difficulty in integration of different robotic framework with existing facilities

Interoperability is a very important function in any factory or manufacturing unit. There must exist a 3Dlar framework for both hardware and software to connect and coordinate various end effector systems. The focus is not only on the software side, which is used for programming, diagnosing, and monitoring but also the interchangeability of hardware between the end effector and robot arm. There have been cases in the industry where a client has bought a robot arm and an end effector separately that were not fully compatible with each other, and the setup was a huge challenge from the onset. It is currently common in the industry to switch end effector mid-cycle to accommodate different parts such as vision systems or replacement of the end effector, owing to better performance-cost ratio. It is the role of the integrator, rather than the manufacturer or end user, to decide on the implementation and set up of the end effector. Interoperability issues, therefore, present a big challenge for SMEs due to their unique requirements and lack of personnel to set up a complex automation setup. Companies have now started to implement plug-and-play functionality in many of their robots to minimize interoperability issues at both software and hardware levels. Universal Robots (Denmark), for example, launched an entire platform named UR+ for full hardware and software integration of third-party end effectors from many companies such as Robotiq (Canada), Piab (Sweden). Schunk (Germany) and Soft Robotics (US) with their robot arms. A similar observation can be seen in the case of collaborative robots, where the end effector manufacturer teams up with a robot arm manufacturer for seamless integration. Robotiq (Canada) provides an online platform called Robotiq Configurator, where clients can configure the combination of end effectors from the available configuration with detailed information, as per their application.

Despite the above, interoperability remains a challenge as new end effectors and use cases are being introduced, and the software is being constantly updated to rectify reported issues. There have been standardization attempts for industrial robots and end effectors. One such attempt is the OPC Unified Architecture or OPC UA, an open-source, cross-platform machine-to-machine communication protocol developed for industrial automation and communication. However, for more than 14 years from its initial release, it is still being revised and has not yet materialized into an established standard as yet.
