Sales Analysis of Small Robotic Arm (2018-2021) Vs. Market Outlook (2023-2033)

A small robotic arm can carry out all of the same tasks as a human arm. Robotic arms, however, are more advanced technology and perform tasks more effectively. A computer-controlled robotic arm is attached to a rational manipulator.

A mechanical arm that may be programmed to move along an axis or rotate in different directions is referred to as a robotic arm. The robotic arms that have a payload of around less than 20 kg are specifically small robotic arms. Therefore, a robotic arm is classified according to its axis into 1-axis, 2-axis, 3-axis, 4-axis, 5-axis, 6-axis, and 7-axis.

Being a machine, it is built to be more powerful than a human arm. This implies that heavy, repetitive operations can be executed with remarkable accuracy by robotic arms.

The increase in changes in business due to the pandemic due to work from the home system is one of the most important factors for the growth of the small robotic arm market. The market is also positively affected by the integration of cognitive technologies and changes in business processes between companies.

  • Short Term (2023 Q1 to 2026): Adoption of robotic technology is almost every sector is paving way for market growth.
  • Medium Term (2026- 2029): The growing research and development in order to develop more advanced products in the field of robotics to provide a platform for the usage of small robotic arm.
  • Long Term (2029- 2033): Integration of IoT in small robotic arms can show progress and improve their effectiveness as its efficiency will be improved which will lead in growth of the sales.

From 2018 to 2022, the global market for small robotic arm registered a CAGR of 6.8%. Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, reveals that the market will exhibit growth at 8.9% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

What’s Driving High Demand for Small Robotic Arm across Regions?

“Various advantages provided by the robotic technology to drive market growth”

Emerging trends in factory automation are one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. In addition, the growing need for assembly line operational efficiency also contributes to market growth.

Additionally, the growing global electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry also acts as another growth driver. These robotic arms are widely used to perform various functions such as palletizing and welding with excellent positioning ability and repeatability.

Its capabilities also include managing minimal electronic components factors such as increasing adoption of industrial robots, and significant growth while minimizing the overall installation time and cost of implementing a robotic solution. Such robotic automation technologies are driving the market at a faster pace.

“Rising penetration of robotic technology in aerospace to provide opportunities for market growth”

The role of robotics in manufacturing aerospace products is considered important. Robotics plays an important role in aircraft engine manufacturing, but aerospace companies are increasingly investing in robots to perform painting, drilling, and other tasks on airframes.

Flexible automation ensures potential market growth due to the robot's ability to repeatedly place very large aerospace components with high precision.

In 2011, it was predicted that the aerospace industry would spend US$ 3.25 trillion over the next 20 years which later on increased to US$ 4 trillion approximately. The most cost-effective way the aerospace industry can scale production at this rate is through robotics.

What Do Small Robotic Arm Manufacturers Need to Watch Out for?

Maintenance and continuous monitoring of the robots may hinder market growth

Robots need to be closely watched to avoid mechanical issues that would cause them to halt. The company can suffer losses as a result of this. Robots can only carry out the duties that have been programmed into them. The robot has the ability to text the operator with feedback on the operation but cannot solve it automatically.

Maintenance of the parts of the robot at regular time periods is necessary for the smooth functioning of the machine. Throughout the forecast period, monitoring the activities of robots and their maintenance is anticipated to restrain the small robotic arm market's expansion.

How Oil & Gas Sector will Generate Growth Opportunities for Revenue Generation?

Oil and gas, nuclear, hydro, steam, and wind power systems are machined with incredible precision and durability that can survive in unpredictable and hostile environments on land or at sea. A pipe small robotic arm is used to solve the problem of pipe blockages, cracks, leaks, etc.

Inspection of sewer pipes is carried out by a video small robotic arm. The application of pipe inspection technology makes it easier for the maintenance workers to check the problems of the sewer pipes rather than visiting the sewer pipe in person, which effectively improves the level of supervision of sewer pipes.

The emergence of such type of pipe inspection device has changed or upgraded the conventional manual inspection mode. This device not only provides a convenient solution for pipeline inspection but also helps to detect pipe leaks. This pipeline inspection through robots is widely used in the oil and gas industry to detect any type of leakages in the system.

As the oil and gas industry is poised to grow in the coming years, the sales for small robotic arms will capture a revenue share of 14.2% in 2023.
