Industrial Robotics Market

Market Leadership - Industrial Robotics Market

The industrial robotics market size (including the prices of peripherals, software and system engineering) is expected to grow from USD 48.7 billion in 2019 to USD 75.6 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 9.2%. Increasing demand for automation of repetitive & hazardous tasks, coupled with the decline of skilled labor workforce is pushing manufacturers to automate at a faster pace. Easier programmability and decreasing costs of industrial robots are enabling greater scale of automation and a faster return on investment (ROI). Growing demand for collaborative robots across all industry segments; ranging from established industries such as automotive, as well as small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is also expected to contribute to the growth of the market.

Although the industrial robotics market is growing at a steady pace, it is highly competitive owing to the presence of several key global players dominating the marketspace. Key strategies adopted by these players to enhance their product portfolios, increase their market share, and expand their presence in the market include product launches and partnership and collaborations. Many market players adopted product launches as a key business strategy.
