According to the study “Global Assembly Robots Market – Structure, Size, Trends, Analysis and Outlook 2016-2022”, all the global assembly robots are adopted to assist the human workforce in their workshops. With the increasing number of small and large scale industries adopting assembling cobots has witnessed a strong growth. Therefore, cobots are designed with advanced technologies which represent the second largest applications within robotics category. The major challenges within cobots market are safety concerns, technological difficulty of improving payload capacity, speed and slower rate of industrial cobots penetration. All the leading vendors of cobots are increasingly focusing on creating more sophisticated technology oriented robots with long-term reliability. The leading players within the global assembly robots are ABB, KUKA, Fanuc, Yaskawa Motoman, Mitsubishi Electric, Kawasaki Robotics, Rethink Robotics, Universal Robots, Toshiba Machine, Nachi Robotic Systems and Adept Technology.
Robot is a programmed computer machine that can carry out a series of operations automatically. All the robots are operated with an embedded controller or with external controlling device. Collaborative robots are smaller, smarter, more affordable, user-friendly and flexible automatic solutions compare to aged traditional industrial robots. Cobots is a short name for collaborative robots which are designed for industrial assembling process. Global assembly collaborative robots market is segmented based on the end-users such as automotives, electrical, electronics, machinery, metals, chemicals, rubber, plastics and other industries. Automotives, electrical and electronics are the major consumers of newly devised cobots. Geographically, the global assembly robots market is spread across the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific and rest of the world. Asia-Pacific leads the assembly robots market in terms of revenue and sales followed by Europe and North America. Within Asia-Pacific, China and Southeast Asian countries are expected to drive a continuing growth over the next few years.
Advanced technology in automation control has led to adoption of robots to complete complicated assembly processes which are impossible with human involvement. Over the past few years, industries all over the globe are improving technologies to meet the high demand of assembly applications. Advance technology in controlling hardware and software allows the assembly robots to gently comply with tooling or the part to correct for any positional errors. For large complex assembly applications, multiple assembly robots are synchronized to assemble the large components using cooperative motion controls. Various robotic tools with multi-axis positions are utilized to complete multiple assembly operations in a single work cell.
Industrialization in developed nations resulted in increased outsourcing of manufacturing operations to various low-cost destinations across the globe. Cobots are employed on every factory floor for various assembling processes and to reduce the high labour costs. Global assembly collaborative robots market is experiencing a healthy growth due to deployment of more assembled cobots in all industries. The market will witness an increase in industrial productivity and less industrial accidents. Almost all the industries have replaced human workforce with assembly industrial robots to survive the ever growing global competitive industrial environment.
