Market for collaborative robots with a payload capacity between 5 and 10 kg expected to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period

The market for collaborative robots having a payload capacity between 5 and 10 kg is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2025. This growth is mainly attributed to the expected demand for collaborative robots with medium payload capacity in industries such as automotive, furniture and equipment, and metals and machining. Collaborative robots having a payload capacity between 5 and 10 kg are the safest co-bots for a majority of factory automation tasks. These robots can perform all the collaborative operations that can be performed by robots having a payload capacity up to 5 kg robots. A few major companies that provide these robots are Universal Robots A/S (Denmark) - UR10 (10 kg), KUKA AG (Germany) - LBR iiwa 7 R800 (7 kg), MABI AG (Switzerland) - Speedy6 (6 kg), FANUC Corporation (Japan) - CR 7iA (7 kg), Quanta Storage Inc. (Taiwan) - TM5-700 (6 kg), and Yaskawa Motoman (US) - HC10 (10 kg). A significant surge in demand for co-bots having a payload capacity between 5 and 10kg is observed during the past few years; as well as many new companies have emerged offering robots having this payload capacity range. The strong demand for co-bots for assembly and material handling applications is expected to drive this market growth further.

Pick and place application accounted for largest market share in 2017

The pick and place application accounted for the largest share of the global collaborative robot market in 2017. Majority of the low-payload capacity co-bots, i.e., co-bots having a payload capacity of less than 5 kg are used for pick and place tasks. However, the market for the assembly application is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Assembly operations have a huge scope in the manufacturing industry for collaborative robots as these robots allow the new user to grasp the basics of working easily. Collaborative robots are known for the reduced time of assembly, accuracy, speed, reach, and any material handling capacity. Benefits offered by collaborative robots include greater precision than that of special-purpose instruments. They can be easily deployed and sometimes need only reprogramming to resume working on another assembly line. Growing demand from automotive, food & beverages, and furniture and equipment industries is fueling the demand for co-bots for assembly applications.

APAC to grow at highest rate in collaborative robot market

Europe accounted for the largest market share in 2017, closely followed by APAC and North America. The growth of the market in Europe was driven by strong government support to promote factory automation solutions, thereby supporting the evolution of Industry 4.0. However, the market in APAC is expected to surpass Europe by 2025. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for collaborative robots in China, Japan, and South Korea, especially by industries such as electronics, automotive, and metals and machining.
