Industrial Robotics Market By Product Type (Articulated Robots, Linear Robots, Cylindrical Robots, Parallel Robots, SCARA Robots, Others), By Functionality (Soldering And Welding, Material Handling, Painting & Dispensing, Cutting & Processing), By End-use Vertical (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Plastics, Rubber And Chemicals, Metals & Machinery, Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverages, Precision Engineering & Optics, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The global industrial robotics market was worth $32.9 billion in 2017, and it is expected to grow at an 8.3% CAGR from 2018 to 2026. The accelerating pace of automation is transforming a wide range of industries. Therefore, robots have made their way and are spreading throughout warehouses and manufacturing facilities around the world. To a certain extent, the new wave of automation is driven by the same things that first brought robotics and automation into the workplace: to free human workers from dangerous, dirty, and dull jobs; improve quality by reducing variability; eliminate errors, and cut down manufacturing costs. The growing importance of workplace safety and rising demand for automating processes to increase efficiency, enhance safety, and reduce human errors are some of the major factors driving the growth prospects of the market worldwide.

Industrial robotics transformed traditional industrial processes, allowing manufacturers to increase productivity while improving quality and lowering costs. Industrial robots have been in the industry for a long time now. In 1970, approximately 200 robots were used in the U.S., which later increased to 4,000 in 1980 and 5,500 in 1981 and is still increasing. According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), the global sales of industrial robots increased by 31% and reached a new record of 387,000 units in 2017.

Market Snapshot

Articulated robots accounted for the largest market share in 2017.

In 2017, based on product type, articulated robots accounted for the largest market share in the global industrial robotics market. Articulated robots are most commonly used in factories worldwide.
