Sales Analysis of Assembly Robot (2018-2022) Vs. Market Outlook (2023-2033)

Robots used for assembly are prevalent in all manufacturing settings. They are capable of easily doing routine and repetitive jobs. Assembly robots are ideal for building goods that need a delicate or exact touch because of how accurate their EOAT is. Any product containing electronics or small components could be one of them.

A person would find it dangerous to handle the awkward and heavy parts that assembly robots can handle. Almost all of the line's nodes in contemporary assembly lines are run by robots or other automated machinery. This makes sure that the construction process is correct and constant.

An excellent example of a sector that applies these ideas is the car or automotive industry. Vehicles are made up of hundreds of intricate elements, each with a unique size and installation process. The optimum tool for the job would be a robotic arm because installing a vehicle's components necessitates so many unusual movements.

As a result, robotic assemblers make up the majority of automotive assembly lines. These robots collaborate to create finished automobiles at a steady rate. Without jeopardizing workers, heavier objects like the motor and vehicle frame may be installed quickly.

  • Short Term (2023 Q1 to 2026): The growing automotive and manufacturing industries across the globe and the rising implementation of robotics in these industries to lead to market growth.
  • Medium Term (2026- 2029): The growing research and development in the field of robotics in developed economies like the U.S., Japan, China, etc. to provide a platform for the usage of assembly robot.
  • Long Term (2029- 2033): The implementation of new technologies and the utilization of IoT in assembly robots may result in progress and improve their efficiency.

From 2018 to 2022, the global market for assembly robot registered a CAGR of 8.2%. Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, reveals that the market will exhibit growth at 11.6% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

Market share analysis of assembly robot based on region and axes is provided in the above image. Under the axes segment, 4 axis and below sub-segment dominates with 45.3% market share in 2023.

What’s Driving High Demand for Assembly Robot across Regions?

“Vivid application across end use vertical to give all-round demand prospective for assembly robot.”

Robots are excellent at handling materials, making them ideal for a variety of assembly activities. They can handle and move items anywhere within their maximum reach because of their six axes of movement, which enables complex movement sequences to assemble the necessary parts.

Additionally, robots can be outfitted with a wide range of tools, including both common and custom equipment. This means that robots can adhere to the required production standards by using tools that have been approved, in addition to developing new tooling for a process that wasn't previously automated.

Tasks that involve putting one component into another to assemble other components are known as insertion tasks; one example of this is electronic assembly. To ensure proper positioning and prevent the displacement of other parts, electronic assembly requires a high degree of accuracy. Such tasks can be efficiently handled by the assembly robots which thereby demonstrates the positive growth of the market.

“Improved efficiency of the assembly lines as a part of the automation to push sales of assembly robots”

The assembly process has emerged as one of the most popular forms of automation. Since then, they have gained a commonplace in industries and manufacturers of all sizes and are used to effectively streamline production.

Depending on the product being manufactured, assembly lines can be ranged from very simple to complex, with little human interaction with the product, instead, the manufacturing process can be made fully automated.

Conventional automation systems are hard mechanical devices that are difficult to adapt to new products due to their lack of flexibility. New automation techniques such as robots have filled this gap, allowing devices to be reprogrammed and reused for different tasks.

What Do Assembly Robot Manufacturers Need to Watch Out?

“High installation and maintenance costs to act as stumbling block in market growth.”

Robotic equipment often has a high investment cost. This includes basically the initial cost of the robot, including its installation and also maintenance. It has been observed that the initial cost of the robot often exceeds the annual wage of a worker.

Performing frequent and right maintenance is vital to maintain higher efficiency, and prevent unexpected accidents or errors while the robots are being used in various industries. Maintenance mainly includes safety inspections, cleaning, and system analyses. However, the cost-effectiveness of a robot in long-term use results in a quick return on investment.
