Executive Summary
In the mid of 20th century, when the industrial revolution started, there was a rise in the requirement of tremendous work which fueled the need to employ robots alongside humans to perform tedious and repetitive applications with precision and accuracy.The automotive industry was among the early adopters of industrial robots owing to the demand of large parts assembly and several other applications.

In 1961, General Motors, an automobile manufacturer, installed the first prototype of the industrial robots, named Unimate.This resulted in increased efficiency of the work process and the decline in the overall cost.

Fast forward to 2008, when, Universal Robots A/S, the leading collaborative robot manufacturer launched its first collaborative robot. After that, the collaborative robots have gained a lot of popularity across various industries, and they have been employed to perform an array of tasks.

Collaborative robots are used in industries to perform applications, such as assembly, pick & place, packaging & palletizing, machine tending, screw driving, among others.Some of the features, such as the capability to be used alongside humans, easy installation & operation, and lower cost when compared with conventional industrial robots, set the collaborative robots apart from the traditional robot.

With all these additional benefits, collaborative robots also provide enhanced process efficiency and unmatched cost reduction. Therefore, the demand for collaborative robots has shot up, especially in the last decade. In the past two to three years the industry has witnessed several new product launches from traditional industrial robot manufacturers. These product launches underline a clear shift undergoing in the robotics industry where collaborative robots are emerging as the next big thing.

The demand for collaborative robots is rapidly increasing among different industries across the globe. The market is driven by a number of factors, such as growing market penetration of collaborative robots across multiple applications, increased productivity at the workplace, declining prices & quick return on investment, and minimal infrastructure, and flexible operation of collaborative robots, among others.

In 2017, the collaborative robot market accounted for a market value of $283.7 million which is anticipated to grow with 63.95% CAGR from 2018 to 2023.

In 2017, Automotive industry in the collaborative robot market accounted for the maximum share in the overall revenue. The significant share of the automotive industry is mainly attributed to a large number of repetitive and tedious tasks present in the industry for which the companies are employing collaborative robots to increase the cost-effectiveness of the processes.

Europe, followed by Asia-Pacific, North America, and Rest-of-the-World, is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.However, in terms of countries, the United States is the leading country in the collaborative robot market, and the country is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period.

The country has the presence of collaborative robot manufacturers in the country. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR with China dominating the market in this region.

Some of the key players in the collaborative robot market include: Universal Robots A/S, Rethink Robotics, Fanuc Corporation, KUKA AG, ABB Robotics, Aubo Robotics, Bosch Rexroth AG, Denso Corporation, and Yaskawa Electric Corp. among others.
