Robot Growth on the Rise in Coming Years

Jun 30, 2013

Industrial robots are becoming the tool of choice on the production line as they are bringing a variety of benefits to production lines across the globe, such as increased speeds, product quality, and better cycle times. They offer a wide range of reaches, repeat-abilities, and payloads.


Robots are becom­ing increas­ing­ly pop­u­lar through­out the man­u­fac­tur­ing world. This wave of growth doesn’t seem to be crest­ing any­time soon, accord­ing to statistics.

A lead­ing inter­na­tion­al busi­ness research firm, the Free­do­nia Group, has fore­cast­ed a glob­al increase for robots of near­ly 11 per­cent per year for the next three years, with the Unit­ed States robot growth at 15 per­cent per year – just two per­cent behind China’s pre­dict­ed robot­ic growth.

Since the robot­ic mar­ket is not a mature one, experts agree that this peri­od of growth for robots does not mim­ic those of decades past. It has the abil­i­ty to stay around for a while.

The sub­stan­tial advance­ments in tech­nol­o­gy have spurred on this peri­od of robot­ic growth. With robot­ics com­pa­nies con­stant­ly inno­vat­ing – intro­duc­ing new soft­ware and fea­tures for robots – along with mak­ing robots with increased pay­load capac­i­ties and improved reach, who knows how far into the next decade this growth peri­od could extend?

While ser­vice robots do make up part of this growth indus­try, it is indus­tri­al robots that make up the major­i­ty of the robot growth in pre­dic­tions. The major­i­ty of robots are used for weld­ing, assem­bly and mate­r­i­al han­dling applications.

As com­pa­nies learn to mas­ter new robot­ic appli­ca­tions and cre­ate more intel­li­gent robots, robots will only fur­ther expand in the glob­al mar­ket. This indus­tri­al robot growth may pen­e­trate so far into the man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­try that they may cause a tip­ping point all on their own.

Want to jump on this robot­ic growth wave and ride it right into the shore? Robots​.com can help you con­vert your man­u­al indus­tri­al appli­ca­tions to robot­ics in no time.
