The global industrial robotics market traces its history from the early 1960s when the first large-scale application of robots was perfected for automation of automotive industry. Since then, it had a thriving journey by providing the manufacturing sector with programmable and flexible machines for complex tasks. The growth of the industrial robotics industry continues at an impressive place, majorly driven by rising labor charges across the globe. This would, in turn, have enforced companies to replace labor with machines. This growing demand for these products is justified by the recent statistics released by the International Federation of Robotics (IFR). The organization stated that the global sales of industrial robots recorded 387,000 units in 2017, up 31% compared to the previous year statistics. Further, between 2012 and 2017, the average sales of robotic products have increased at 19% CAGR.

Furthermore, the development of collaborative machines, the launch of application-specific machines coupled with growing penetration in SMEs is the key factors augmenting the global industry. The lucrative opportunity for the growth of this market lies with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) (manufacturing units), which are economical in this globalized world. Other factors such as growing non-automotive applications and associated benefits such as reduction in manufacturing costs and increased productivity are some potential factors stoking the industry growth. However, lack of technical skills coupled with high cost hampers the market growth to some extent.
The robotics market revolves around the four key market parameters; namely products, applications, functions, and geography. Based on products, the industry is bifurcated as Cartesian (gantry), Articulated, SCARA, Cylindrical, and others. This classification of robots is done on the basis of their mechanical structure. Among its various types, articulated, SCARA, and Cartesian robots are majorly used by industries. Articulated robots continue to hold a major share of the industrial robots market in 2017.
Depending upon applications, the industry is segmented as Electrical & Electronics, Automotive, Chemical, Machinery, Metals, Food and Beverages, Precision and optics and others. Among which, automotive and electrical & electronics sector will continue to capture the highest share, i.e. more than 55% in an anticipated year. In a recent trend, collaborative robotics is more frequently used in the automotive industry. Integration of robots with production processes helps manufacturer in improving productivity, minimizing overheads and offers a high degree of flexibility as compared to the outcome of manual labor that consequently propels this application market.
Regionally, with revenue of more than USD 25 billion in 2017, the Asia Pacific region is considered to be the strongest individual market. Japan, South Korea and China are projected to record significant revenue. Robot industries in Asia Pacific countries such as Korea, Taiwan and China are supported by their governments through programs addressing tax incentives, R&D funding, loans, and investment in skills. On another side, developed regions such as Europe and North America accounted for the significant revenue share. Rising demand for automation in industrial production coupled with the increasing standard of living will push the industry demand upward in these regions.
