The increasing use of robotics will boost the growth of the market in the coming future. However, the high initial investment and concern for human safety restricts the growth of the market.
Impact of COVID-19 on Robotics Market
The COVID-19 outbreak has become a global stress test. As the number of people infected with the virus continues to rise around the world, uncertainties about global economic growth increases. The COVID-19 disease has infected more than 176 Million people worldwide. Globally the death toll has surpassed 3,803,257, according to the latest statistics from the Worldometers (as of June 12, 2021). The number is still growing, and the duration of the pandemic is still difficult to predict. The novel coronavirus has increased interest in robots, drones, and artificial intelligence.
The COVID-19 global pandemic has two effects on the robotics industry. First, it drives the growth of professional service robots, which can help augment critical infrastructure staff and alleviate supply chain stresses. On the other hand, the market for industrial robots is hampered due to their reliance on the automotive and electrical/electronic industries. The markets for most types of service robots seems hardly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Robotic solutions support social distancing, are not sent to quarantine and are not affected by travel bans. These technologies can help deal with massive staffing shortages in healthcare, manufacturing, and supply chains; the need for “social distancing;” and diagnosis and treatment. Following a slowdown in global demand of industrial robots due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is expected that the major industrial robot vendors will start receiving orders from 2021 onwards.
Industrial Robotics Market - Overview
The global industrial robotics market was valued at around US$ 10.6 Billion in 2020. The market for industrial robots is hampered due to their reliance on the automotive and electrical/electronic industries, which was affected the most due to COVID-19 pandemic. Customers from both the automotive industry and general industry held back on orders and postponed their planned investments for robots and support services. However, the demand for industrial robotics is anticipated to grow exponentially during the forecast period driven by advantages such as cost reduction, improved quality, increased production, and improved workplace health and safety. The adoption of automation to ensure quality production and meet market demand, and the growing demand from small- and medium-scale enterprises in developing countries is fueling the growth of industrial robotics market globally.
