The global industrial robotics market size was valued at $38 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $163 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 12.6% from 2023 to 2032.An industrial robot is a type of mechanical machine that is provided with input to perform automatically the tasks that are related to production in industries. These robots are reprogrammable, and the program can be changed many times depending on the usage and industrial requirements. For automation applications, industrial robots help in increasing productivity by reducing costs and producing high-quality products. Most of the industrial robots consist of a drive, end-effector, robotic manipulator, sensors, and controllers. The robotic controller is the brain of the robot that helps in giving 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 in interacting the robot with the workpieces. Five types of robots used in the industries include collaborative, cartesian, SCARA, cylindrical, and articulated. The type of robot selected depends upon the degree of freedom of movement, size required, and payload capacities. Industrial robots help in optimizing manufacturing for healthy and efficient processes.
The industrial robotics market is severely hampered owing to the ongoing inflation. The growth of the electronics and automobile sector was hampered by the impact of inflation, eventually negatively affecting the industrial robotics market, as the robot is widely used in the electrical and electronics industry.
Labor charges across the UK increase by more than 12% every year, thus resulting in a shortage of workers. To overcome such problems, market players are investing in industrial robotics. 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 an increase in initiatives taken by industries to use robots to compensate with the labor charge and shortage, which drives the industrial robotics market growth. 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. compared to 2019. High imports of robots are attributable to their use in the microelectronics industry that uses small robots to pick and place small components. The global microelectronic industry has grown by more than 10% since 2010. Hence, the growth in microelectronic industry requiring larger number of robots is expected to drive the industrial robot market.
In January 2022, DHL supply chain invested $15 million in robotic solutions for supply chain network in the warehouses. Robots help in easy supply chain network by decreasing long-term costs, increasing productivity, reducing error, and optimizing picking operations. It is estimated that the supply chain market will grow by more than 100% by 2026 as per the industrial robotics market trends. Hence, with growing supply chain network, surge in requirement for cost saving, and increase in efficiency are creating new opportunities for the market.
