As per McKinsey’s report, industrial robots are designated as “low volume, high complexity”.
“The low-volume designation is related to the relatively small number of machines that are produced and deployed within each specification. Two realities characterize the high complexity of the industrial robotics sector: first, the breadth of different machine types that can be included under the umbrella is massive, just in the sheer number of machine types. Second, there is also great variety when it comes to the size, technology, and application areas of robots.”
As per the physical attributes, industrial robots are categorized such as height, weight, reach, etc., or interaction with humans, mobility, and level of autonomy.
In 2019, 5000 units were the mark for industrial robots and by 2025, it is estimated to reach 11,760 units. It is expected that a CAGR of 14.41% during the 2020-2025 period.
Why Industrial robots?
- Quality and quantity enhanced in production
- Safety is improved
- Solving Labor shortage issues
- Dealing with complexities of industrial operations
- Enhancing flexibility
- Enhancing precision in the automotive manufacturing process
- Demand increased in other sectors such as electronics, pharmaceuticals, food, machinery and equipment, and metals.
