  • April 2020- ABB Ltd. launched a block-based programming interface, ‘Wizard Easy Programming’ with the aim to make programming its single arm YuMi cobot more intuitive.

  • September 2019- Universal Robots launched a brand-new collaborative robot model UR16e, which is designed for heavy payload application for tackling heavy duty tasks effectively.

Global Collaborative Robot Market Highlights 2022 – 2030

The global collaborative robot market is estimated to garner a large amount of revenue by recording a CAGR of ~42% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. Increasing affordability and ease of programming offered by collaborative robots are primarily expected to drive market growth in the forthcoming years. Furthermore, the world is witnessing a surge in demand for performing tasks requiring higher payload capacity efficiently. Cobots are well-equipped to perform effectively with employees in an uncaged environment, which in turn is projected to skyrocket the demand for these machines in the near future.    

Collaborative Robot MarketThe growth of the market can also be attributed to the high return on investment as compared to traditional industrial robotic system, and rising adoption of industrial robots across various industry verticals such as chemicals, automotive, electronics and others. It is calculated that almost 34 percent of industrial robots will be sold by the end of 2025. Also, about 40,000 cobots entered the robotics industry in 2020. Moreover, as per the International Federation of Robotics, automotive industry accounted for an installation of 105 industrial robots in the year 2019, bagging the highest number of installations in all industrial verticals, followed by electronics industry with 88 installations. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

Industrial Robots
