This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the industrial robotics market in APAC by applications (material handling, assembly line, welding, paint robots, logistics, machine tending, and inspection) and by end users (automotive, food and beverage, industrial machinery, electronics and semiconductor, and others). The leading vendors in the market include ABB, FANUC, Kawasaki, KUKA, Yaskawa, and SIASUN.

Overview of the industrial robotics market in APAC

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the industrial robotics market in APAC to grow at a CAGR of more than 8% by 2020. The growing popularity of smart and robotic factories among various manufacturing companies in APAC has necessitated the implementation of maximum standards for precision and quality. This focus on precision and quality will increase the application of robots in the industrial sector. These robots are finding usage across several verticals primarily for mass production and their ability to increase efficiency, produce better quality products, standardize products, and reduce wastage will ensure that they are extensively adopted during the predicted period. Moreover, with the growing demand for automation in several manufacturing facilities, the need for industrial robots has increased substantially.

As per this market research analysis, an interesting trend gaining momentum is the increased use of collaborative robots or cobots in the manufacturing sector. Cobots have become very popular among small and medium businesses owing to their affordability, high adaptability, and pre-enabled plug and play features. Several companies are opting for cobots as these robots take less space, are easy to train and flexible to handle short-run and repetitive tasks. With industrial cobots being the fastest growing category in the industrial robotics sector, the market will witness considerable rise in revenues during the forecast period.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the industrial robotics market in APAC

  • Material handling
  • Assembly line
  • Welding
  • Paint robots
  • Logistics
  • Machine tending
  • Inspection

During 2015, the material handling segment dominated the market and occupied more than 50% of the overall market share. The presence of a large number of already existing manufacturing facilities, increasing adoption of robots among small sized business for packaging, and decreasing ergonomic hazards for workers will fuel the need for material handling robots in factories and workshops. With rising investments in setting up new manufacturing facilities, the demand for material handling robots will rise rapidly during the forecast period.

Segmentation by end user and analysis of the industrial robotics market in APAC

  • Automotive
  • Food and beverage
  • Industrial machinery
  • Electronics and semiconductor

The automotive sector is the largest end user of industrial robots and will continue its dominance in the market until 2020. Much of this segment’s growth can be attributed to the presence of an established automotive industry in Japan and China, which have the largest automotive manufacturing base in APAC. The growing demand for passenger cars and the subsequent need for their virtual inspection will result in the positive growth of this segment over the next four years.
