    • As per Association for Advancing Automation, robot orders in Q1 2021 were 19.6 percent higher than the same period in 2020*, in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic slowing down the global economy last year 

    • China is the major demand market for robotics, with an estimated market share of approx. 37 percent in 2020

    • China, South Korea, Japan, the US, and Germany are the five major markets, and they contributed to about 80 percent demand of the global industrial robot sales volume in 2020

    • Collaborative robots (cobots) are moving towards heavy-duty material handling, part-handling, machine tending, etc., as compared to their previous small payloads and lighter applications

    • The world robotics market is witnessing notable changes with the usage of robots beyond industrial production floors. Today, robots are adapting to the roles of surgical robots, cooking robots, personal assistants, exoskeletons, delivery vehicles, autonomous vehicles, exoskeletons, and unmanned aerial vehicles, etc.

    • Although, there is a rising demand for industrial robots anticipated in the future; 2020 experienced a decline in new robot sales due to a weak consumer demand from the automotive and electronics industry users. This was mainly attributed to a damp economic environment, US-China trade tensions, and a low investment confidence. Even the demand for new electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing lines and in service areas such as intra-logistics was unable to offset the headwinds from the aforementioned markets.

    Industrial Robotics-Market Overview

    • The global market for industrial robots (comprising of traditional industrial robots and collaborative robots only) is expected to be valued at $28.20 billion by the end of 2022*, and it is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 10.26 percent to reach about $37.80 billion by 2025.

    • Asia, specifically China, has historically been the largest buyers of industrial robot technology. China leads the position as the biggest market, with a share of 37 percent, followed by markets of Japan and South Korea

    • There is an increase in demand for industrial robots in the recent years, as companies are striving to improve the productivity of their complex production lines, along with cost savings, improving quality, and increasing manufacturing flexibility by means of automation

    • Recent trends in industrial robotics have led to introduction of innovative technical improvements with robots possessing human traits, such as artificial intelligence, object recognition, flexibility, and learning ability, which are fast adopted by manufacturing companies

    • Over the next 7–8 years, it is anticipated that the install base of industrial robots will increase in almost every single country, but China and North America are forecasted to witness the fastest adoption of industrial robots

    Industrial Robotics End-user Market Share, By Consumption (2022*)

    • The global demand for electronic devices and components decreased substantially, due to the US–China trade crisis, as Asian countries are leaders in manufacturing electronic products and components

    • The automotive industry is the second largest adopter of industrial robots, with an estimated market share of 28 percent in 2022. Major growth drivers for this industry is attributed to investments in new car production capacities and in modernization. Using new materials, developing energy efficient drive systems, and high competition in all major car markets pushed for investments 

    • The metal and machinery industry is the third largest customer industry of industrial robots. Global installations are expected to account for 8 percent of total demand by the end of 2022*. In the recent years, the producers of metal products (without automotive parts) and the producers of industrial machinery, bought substantial amounts of robots.

    Cost Structure – Industrial Robot System

    It has been observed that the cost of industrial robots is decreasing in spite of labor cost becoming more expensive. As production of robots shifts to special economic zones and low-cost regions; robot demand experiences a compounding effect on their cost.

    Future Cost Trends

    • Robot (includes software) – Minimal decline is expected, as pricing is close to material cost for high purchase volume automotive industry.

    • Peripherals – Parts, such as sensors, safety systems or barriers, etc., are anticipated to witness additional Drop, due to the removal of safety barriers.

    • Systems Engineering – Includes programming, installation, etc. The decrease in this area is expected to Slow, due to the association of minimum cost of installation.

    • Project Management – It has always occupied 5–10 percent of the total system cost. Further decline is expected in the near future.
