Collaborative robot market forecasted to grow at a CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) of ~50.3 percent from 2018 to 2025

The collaborative robot market is forecasted to grow from $710.0M in 2018 to $12303.0M by 2025, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of ~50.3 percent from 2018 to 2025. Reduced cost of ownership, thereby growing return on investment ; increased investments in automation by sectors to support the evolution of Sector 4.0; increase in the adoption of co-robots by small- and mid-sized enterprises ; high integration of artificial intelligence into existing robotics infrastructure; and enhancements in 3D machine vision technology are a few top factors driving the collaborative robot market rise. On top of, the ability of co-bots to offer safe working conditions creates substantial demand for co-bots from the automotive, electronics, metals & machining, plastics and polymers, and food & beverages markets. On the other hand, lack of capabilities associated to faster cycle time and repeatability and high installation cost of these robots for low-volume production applications still act as main restraining factors for the market increase.

Co-bots having payload capacity between 5 and 10 kg forecasted to grow at a more significant Compound annual growth rate during the outlook period

Co-bots with up to 5 kg payload capacity held the biggest market share, in terms of value importance and quantity, in 2017, and a similar trend is likely to continue from 2018 to 2025.Nevertheless, the sector for co-bots having payload capacity between 5 and 10 kg is anticipated to grow at the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2018 to 2025.

This increase is essentially attributed to the expected demand for collaborative robots with medium payload capacity in markets like automotive, furniture and equipment, and metals and machining. Co-bots within this payload capacity range can perform all the collaborative operations that the co-bots with up to 5 kg can do, and they can also meet the intended application requirements of the widest range of end-user markets.

Automotive, electronics, and metals and machining sectors to hold larger market shares

Automotive, electronics, and metals and machining are the top markets in the overall collaborative robot market in 2017.Co-bots are used to perform many assembling tasks, which are extensively used in the automotive sector.

These robots are further used to perform different other tasks, including pick and place, quality inspection, packaging and palletizing, machine tending, and material handling, across the automotive production line while deploying and re-deploying co-bots in time- and cost-effective manner without impacting the global layout of the production line.

Asia-Pac to hold main market share of collaborative robot market

EU held the biggest share of the collaborative robot market in 2017 and is anticipated to be surpassed by the Asia-Pacific regions by 2025.This high increase of Asia Pacific is anticipated to be led by the growing demand for collaborative robots in China (CN), Japan (JP), and South Korea (KR), especially for industries including electronics, automotive, and metals and machining.

These countries are home to various SMEs engaged in manufacturing processes across said sectors and also making significant investments for automating their production processes, which adds to the rise of the collaborative robot market.
