Body in White and Power Train Assemblies will see a Surge in Robotic Adoption
Final Abstract: From the early 1960s, the automotive industry has been known for its intensive use of industrial robots. Since then, the auto-building sector has come a long way by utilizing nearly 50% of the global industrial robots for its different applications. Over the course of the last decade, many improvements have been made in production lines to assist the workers with their daily tasks. However, robots have been able to add significant value only to the global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and not to the small and medium-scaled enterprises (SMEs) who contribute nearly 70% of the global manufacturing revenue. Hence, robot manufacturers have a lot of opportunity in steering their capabilities to offer solutions to the global SMEs of the automotive value chain.

This  research service on the Automotive 4.0-Robotics in the Future of Auto-building provides detailed insights into the prevailing market scenario, including drivers, challenges as well as future trends of the robotics and automation market for automotive production. The report mainly covers the five stages of the automotive production value chain-press automation, body-in-white, power-train assembly, paint application and final assembly.

Each of these stages have been analyzed under the following sections:
- Application segmentation-Level of penetration of robots in each application
- Revenue analysis of robotics and automation systems market application wise
- Scenarios in the future factories

Key Questions this Study will Answer:

What are the major challenges for automotive players in terms of Manufacturing 4.0?
What are the main drivers and restraints of the automation and robotics market?
What is the ambition/vision of automotive manufacturers/suppliers regarding the future of manufacturing (in terms of physical assets-tooling, robotization, co-bots and digital assets)? Who are the main market participants?
What is the market position of outsourced engineering companies (Tier III suppliers)?
How can new automation technologies support cost-effective, high-volume production of highly individualized cars?
How can automation and robotics support increasing complex and rapidly changing production concepts?
