Global Automotive Robotics Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Automation to Reduce Human Error – the use of autonomous machines, known as cobots, continue venturing toward automakers and manufacturers. Many systems become easier and faster, yet versatile, and can be deployed safely alongside human operators. The rising automation in the automotive industry is expected to boost the automotive robotics market in the forecasted period. For instance, as per 2022 data, automating the intralogistics can reduce the manpower need by up to around 80% in a car factory.
  • Rising Development in the Transport Infrastructure – which is projected to require nearly USD 2 trillion in transport infrastructure investments every year for its development by 2040.
  • Increasing Sales Value of New Robot Installationswhich in the automotive sector hiked in 2018 when industrial robots worth over USD 4 billion were installed worldwide.
  • Upsurge in the Number of Injuries in the Automotive Industryfor instance, as per 2022 statistics, over 2800 workers have suffered grave injuries in the supply chain of India's automobile industry in the past 5 years.


  • Requirement of High Initial Investment
  • High Cost of Integration
  • Huge Cost of Maintenance

The global automotive robotics market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application segment into casting, welding, painting, cutting, and material handling.

Global Economic Impact

Request Insights
Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
