Global industrial robotics market to grow at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2014 to 2020

December 2015 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global industrial robotics Industry was estimated at USD 25.68 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach USD 40.00 billion by 2020 owing to increased number of deployments in the manufacturing sector to simplify complexities and enhance productivity. Industrial robots are being increasingly used to simplify business activities including marketing, designing, selling, building, installing, maintaining and operating.

An increased emphasis has been laid on productivity index to sustain in the competitive environment of the manufacturing sector and achieve quality results is expected to drive the industrial robotics market. Increasing labor costs coupled with growing demand from automotive industry is anticipated to be a key driving factor in the industry.

Manual labor has eventually replaced with self-programming robots owing to the job efficiency and cost-effectiveness on account of their ability to sense environmental changes through integration of sophisticated sensors. Growing measures concerning safety rights of laborers are also expected to augment growth in the market.

Application of robots in non-automotive industries namely chemicals, food & beverages, electronics, and electricals have resulted in the development of new opportunities and prospects over the past few years. Increasing installation costs and lack of skilled labor are expected to pose a challenge for the companies.
