Robot End-Effector Market

Zimmer Group (Germany) and SCHUNK (Germany) are the Major Players in the Robot End-Effector Market

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. Growing demand for modular end-effectors owing to their capacity to accommodate and handle a large variety of objects as required 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 driving factor for the market.

The robot end-effector market is moderately competitive owing to the presence of several regional and global players. 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, partnerships, and collaborations. Many market players adopted product launches as a key business strategy. For instance, in October 2018, SCHUNK launched compact 24 V permanent magnetic gripper with an integrated electronic system, SCHUNK EMH. As the electronic system is completely installed inside the gripper, the whole assembly requires less space as compared to that of traditional systems. Apart from this, players have also adopted partnerships and collaborations strategies to grow their businesses. For instance, in December 2018, Sidener Engineering (US) was appointed as an authorized distributor for various DESTACO products in response to the growing demand for pneumatic and electromechanical products.
