Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Automotive Robotics Market size is poised to reach USD 20 Billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 13% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of automotive robotics was over USD 7 Billion.The growth of the market can primarily be attributed to the growing robot installations in automobile manufacturing units worldwide. For instance, the automotive industry was found to be the largest user of robots worldwide, with about 28% of all robot installations happening in the automotive sector in 2020.  

Automotive robots are designed such that they assist in the manufacturing of automobiles in the automotive industry in various processes such as assembling, cutting, dispensing, painting and others. They are deployed to find the most minuscule manufacturing differences in handling activities. The robot-to-robot work ensures the quality and efficiency of the product. With the increased automotive manufacturing as well as sales, the demand for automotive robotics is on the rise amongst automobile manufacturers, which in turn, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global market during the forecast period. It was found that nearly 70 million units of automobiles were sold worldwide in 2021.

Automotive Robotics Sector: 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 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 Installations – which 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 Industry – for 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
