Market Dynamics

Fiberglass cutting robots are reprogrammable, and the program can be changed many times depending on the usage and industrial requirements. For automation applications, fiberglass cutting robots help to increase productivity by reducing costs and producing high-quality products. Most fiberglass cutting robots consist of a drive, end-effector, robotic manipulator, sensors, and controllers. The robotic controller is the brain of the robot that helps to give instructions. Robot sensors consist of microphones and cameras that keep the robot aware of the industrial environment. The robotic manipulator is generally the arm of the robot that helps the robot in moving and positioning, while the end effectors help the robot to interact with the workpieces. Varies types of robots are used in industries, including articulated, SCARA, and others. The type of robot selected depends upon the degree of freedom of movement, size required, and payload capacities. Fiberglass cutting robots help in optimizing manufacturing for healthy and efficient processes.

Labor charges across the UK grow by more than 12% every year, thus resulting in shortage of workers. To overcome such problems, market players are investing in fiberglass cutting robots. For instance, in January 2022, Rishi Sunak, the chancellor of the Exchequer invested in robotics to help the UK population and the economy to tackle the crisis of inflation caused due to labor shortage. In addition, it is estimated that the labor cost will increase by more than 20% in the U.S. Hence, this leads to increase in initiatives taken by industries to use robots to compensate with the labor charge and shortage, which drives the fiberglass cutting robots market. In addition, as per the data from the factories and industries of North America, manufacturers and industrial users ordered more than 35%, or more than 25,000 robots, in 2021 as compared to 2019. High imports of robots are attributable to their use in the automotive, aerospace and marine industry. Hence, the growth in microelectronic industry requiring larger number of robots is expected to drive the fiberglass cutting robots market.

This significant upfront financial commitment restricts the broader utilization of fiberglass cutting robots. The adoption of these robots is hindered by the high initial investment and ongoing maintenance costs, attributed to the amalgamation of top-tier hardware substantial installation expenses, the demand for advanced integration capabilities, and sophisticated software control systems. Such factors restrain the fiberglass cutting robots market growth.

Nowadays, the use of fiberglass cutting robots has increased in the pipe and tank, wind energy and manufacturing industries; however, industries such as marine, automotive, and others have deployed fiberglass cutting robots. Increase in demand for precision cutting of products from the wind energy and marine sectors is creating the demand for fiberglass cutting robots. In the future, adoption of robotics technology is expected to increase further, leading to the market growth.

Ongoing advancements in robotics technology, including improved precision, faster cutting speeds, and enhanced software capabilities, offer opportunities for the development of more efficient and versatile fiberglass cutting robots. Innovations such as AI-driven automation, machine learning, and advanced sensors open avenues for enhanced performance and expanded applications.
