Meticulous Research®—a leading global market research company, published a research report titled, ‘Collaborative Robots Market by Type, Component (Hardware, Software), Payload, Application (Material Handling, Welding & Soldering, Assembling and Disassembling), and End-use Industry (Oil & Gas, Automotive, Food & Beverage) - Global Forecast to 2030.’
According to this latest publication from Meticulous Research®, the Collaborative Robots Market is projected to reach $2.7 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period. The growth of this market is driven by the advancements in human-machine interface, advanced components to improve human safety, and affordability and ease of programming. Furthermore, increasing non-manufacturing applications of collaborative robots and decreasing collaborative robot prices are expected to create market growth opportunities during the forecast period.
However, the lack of proper training and skill and lack of capabilities related to faster cycle time and repeatability restrains the growth of this market. Also, the need for fine dexterity in collaborative robots and risk assessment of the collaborative robots are major challenges for the players in this market. Furthermore, the advancements in artificial intelligence and industry 4.0 and collaborative robots with integrated vision systems are key trends in the collaborative robots market.
The collaborative robots market is segmented based on type, component, payload, application, and end-use industry. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market at the regional/country level.
Based on type, the collaborative robots market is segmented into power and force limiting collaborative robots, safety monitored stop collaborative robots, speed and separation collaborative robots, and hand guiding collaborative robots. In 2023, the speed and separation collaborative robots segment is expected to account for the largest share of the collaborative robots market. The large market share of this segment is mainly attributed to its main functions, such as advanced vision systems, safeguarding the operator in collaborative robot applications by maintaining a certain minimum separation distance during operation and utilizing a traditional industrial robot combined with various safety sensors to detect when a human enters into the robot’s work envelope.
Based on component, the collaborative robots market is segmented into hardware and software. The hardware segment is sub-segmented into robotic arm, end of arm tooling (EOAT) devices, drives, controllers, and sensors. The end of arm tooling (EOAT) devices segment is sub-segmented into welding torches, grippers, vacuum cups, clamps, tool changers, vision systems, feeder systems, and other EOAT devices. In 2023, the hardware segment is expected to account for the largest share of the collaborative robots market. This segment’s large market share is attributed to the increasing demand for collaborative robots for various applications, and advancements in the hardware components such as EOAT, tool changers, vision systems, motors, controllers, and power supply have led to improved accuracy, efficiency, and payload capacity of collaborative robots.
Based on payload, the collaborative robots market is segmented into up to 5 KG payload, 5 KG to 10 KG payload, and more than 10 KG payload. In 2023, the 5 KG to 10 KG payload segment is expected to account for the largest share of the collaborative robots market. The large market share of this segment is mainly attributed to the payload collaborative robots being equipped with a built-in force-torque sensor to ensure the safety of the workers and being designed to perform medium-duty applications with ultimate flexibility.
Based on application, the collaborative robots market is segmented into material handling, welding & soldering, assembling and disassembling, machine tending, dispensing, processing, inspection, and other applications. In 2023, the material handling segment is expected to account for the largest share of the collaborative robots market. The large market share of this segment is mainly attributed to factors such as increasing production efficiency, high speed and accuracy of operations, low maintenance cost, speed and strength of material handling, and compact design of robots. Moreover, material handling is a major application in various end-use industries such as automotive, electronics, metals, and machinery.
Based on end-use industry, the collaborative robots market is segmented into automotive and transportation, electrical & electronics, metal & machinery, plastic & chemicals, oil & gas, food & beverage, aerospace & defense, biotechnology, healthcare, and other end-use industries. In 2023, the automotive and transportation segment is expected to account for the largest share of the collaborative robots market. The large market share of this segment is mainly attributed to the benefits offered by collaborative robots in the automotive industry, such as cost-effectiveness, higher efficiency, safety, and speed & precision. Also, using collaborative robots allows car and automotive component makers to accelerate production, reduce costs, improve quality, and ensure workers' safety.
Based on geography, the collaborative robots market is segmented into Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2023, Asia-Pacific is expected to account for the largest share of the Collaborative Robots Market, followed by Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to register the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the presence of large-scale manufacturing industries in the region, especially in the automotive, electronics, and metal and machinery sectors. Further, the demand for collaborative robots has significantly increased due to the growing need for automation in diverse industries such as food and beverages and healthcare. Also, the declining cost of collaborative robots and a shortage of skilled labor are contributing to the growth of the region.
