Mobile Collaborative Robots Market

Segmentation Analysis

Services Are Expected to See Fastest Increase in Demand during Forecast Period

In the mobile collaborative robots market outlook, on the basis of offering, the services category incorporates the revenue generated from the sale of aftermarket components, integration/deployment of mobile cobots, and consulting services. With the rising adoption of mobile cobots around the globe, the demand for installation and maintenance services is expected to increase rapidly during the forecast period.

High Adoption of <5-Kg-Payload-Capacity Mobile Cobots is due to their Wide Application

The <5-kg-payload-capacity category held the largest mobile collaborative robots market share in 2019. A payload capacity of up to 5 kg is ideal for pick & place, testing, as well as assembly applications, due to which the demand for <5-kg-payload-capacity mobile cobots is increasing. Moreover, <5-kg-payload mobile cobots are cheaper and take less space as compared to the higher-payload-capacity mobile cobots.

Demand for Assembling Mobile Cobots in Manufacturing Industries Is Increasing due to Rising Automation Level

In the mobile collaborative robots market, the assembling category, among applications, is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. Assembly operations require mobile cobots on a large scale, as they reduce the time for assembly, thus increasing the speed. Due to this, with the rising automation level in manufacturing industries, the demand for mobile cobots, for assembly purposes, is expected to increase during the forecast period.

Growth in Electronics Sector Are Creating Demand for Mobile Cobots

The rapid adoption of mobile cobots by manufacturers in the continuously growing electronics industry, for increasing the productivity and performing repetitive tasks, would drive the mobile collaborative robots market in this end-user category during the forecast period.

Geographical Outlook

Asia-Pacific (APAC) is Highest-Revenue-Generating Region due to Growing Automotive Industry

The growing automotive industry, due to the rising sale of automobiles, especially electric vehicles, is driving the demand for mobile cobots in the APAC region. China and Japan hold a larger mobile collaborative robots market share in the automotive industry, due to the growing government support to increase the sale of electric vehicles, through subsidies and incentives. For instance, the Government of China announced plans in April 2020 to extend the state subsidies for new-energy vehicles until the end of 2022.

APAC To Witness Fastest Growth due to Rise in Population and Growing Consumer Electronics Industry

The rise in the population, coupled with the growth in the disposable income, is fueling the demand for consumer electronics in the region. As a result, the requirement for mobile cobots is increasing significantly, which would make APAC the fastest-growing region in the mobile collaborative robots market over the forecast period. Additionally, the presence of key consumer electronics manufacturers, such as LG Electronics Pvt. Ltd. and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., and inclination toward industrial automation, to reduce human intervention, are augmenting the demand for mobile cobots.

Mobile Collaborative Robots Market

Trends & Drivers

Increasing Use Of Bin-Picking Mobile Cobots in Factories and Warehouses is Key Market Trend

A major trend being witnessed in the mobile collaborative robots industry is the use of bin-picking mobile cobots. Market players are focused on launching these mobile cobots because of their high accuracy in placing the products as well as lesser time taken to operate, thereby making them desirable among manufacturers across major industry verticals. They also allow manufacturers to quickly achieve high machine uptime and enable accurate placement of parts, with less human intervention. For instance, in April 2020, Teradyne Inc. launched an autonomous bin-picking kit, ActiNav, for machine tending applications. It can easily and autonomously locate and pick the parts from the bins and place them on a machine, thereby leading to an accurate placement and picking of products. Hence, the growing use of such bin-picking variants is augmenting the mobile collaborative robots market growth.
