Disruptive Trends and Technologies Affecting the Industrial Robotics Industry


This strategic research service provides a detailed assessment of the key trends and technologies for industrial robots in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) ecosystem. Some of the key focal areas include development of cobots and the new age workforce, advancements in robotic parts, and software and applications. The study provides an outlook of the key challenges, opportunities, and strategies for industrial robotic value chain participants and solution providers.

Key Findings, Global, 2015

- Mobile robots, through autonomous self-guiding vehicles, are expected to grow at an annual rate of X% by 2020.

- Automated manufacturing functions comprise of about X% of all functions; this is expected to increase as advancements in both robotic software and hardware enable robots to achieve more than they previously could.

- While the capital costs for the robot accounts for X%-X% of the total system cost, the development of cobots could potentially lower the overall costs. The sales of cobots account for X% of the overall robot market; this is expected to increase tenfold by 2020.

- The use of cloud and new robotic systems such as cobots are expected to ensure several partnerships and enable the development of new operating models such as robot-controlas-a-service.

- Robotic technology is merging with other complementary technologies such as force sensing (touch), speech recognition, machine vision, and advanced mechanics to provide added functionality and value.
