New Report Released: - Global Industrial Robot Sensors Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global industrial robot sensors market: ATI Industrial Automation, FANUC, FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology, and Honeywell International.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ams, Cognex, OTC Daihen, Hermary Opto Electronics, iniLabs, MaxBotix, Perception Robotics, Roboception, EPSON, Tekscan, and Omron.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in market is development of next-generation robots. The robotics technology is divided into four major distinct application areas, namely manipulation, navigation, cognition, and perception. Many R&D activities in robotics technology have taken place across these applications. Advances in technology such as gripping, mechatronics, drives, and motion controls have increased the development of industrial robots for manipulation applications, including loading, packaging, and material handling. These belong to the first generation of robotics technology; over the last two decades, constant R&D in navigation and perception technologies has widened the business potential in this field.

Second-generation robots can detect human presence and machines, owing to improved 3D-vision systems and sensors working in combination with intelligent algorithms. This technology, when combined with GPS systems and gyroscopes, enables robots to determine their location, synchronize their movement, and map out their environment. The second-generation robots can move freely and collaborate with humans to perform complex tasks. Developments in second-generation robotics will increase their penetration in warehouses for storing and maintaining the products autonomously. Warehousing is a complex task in logistics that requires high precision and accuracy for maintaining and collecting diversified products.”

According to the report, one driver in market is miniaturization of sensors. A major trend that will impact the growth of the market is the miniaturization of sensors. This trend has been prevalent for several years and is expected to continue during the forecast period. Miniaturization has reduced the costs of sensors and, in turn, robots. There have been innovations in mechatronic components as well, which is in tandem with the increased prevalence of information and communications technology (ICT).

The software that enhances the capabilities of robotic systems is also more affordable for vendors. As the price of sensors declines, there will be a rise in industrial robots that can work in collaboration with humans to improve logistics, support, and monitoring of patients in healthcare facilities. Mobile robots use highly advanced and complex sensors. The development and growth of mobile robots closely depend on advances in technology and growth in the sensor and camera industries among other components. Autonomous mobile transport robots require specialized sensors to function. These factors are expected to drive the global industrial robot sensors market.

Further, the report states that one challenge in market is challenges in delivering high quality at low cost. Robotics engineers along with system developers are continuously researching on adding more products that have enhanced quality in their portfolios. However, a major challenge for industrial robot sensor manufacturers has been the size of the industry, which is not large enough to drive the economies of scale. But, economies of scale is essential to bring down costs of developing new sensors. A major factor that drives up the cost of sensors is the need for customization to ensure that it delivers the accuracy and reliability, which is expected from a robotic system.

The cost of sensors has fallen over the years especially due to the availability of off-the-shelf varieties of sensors, which are mainly used in industrial automation systems. However, a sensor customized for application-specific robots will be technologically advanced, hence more expensive. The sensors for robots use careful engineering, hand wiring, and expensive components. As the market for industrial robots gains traction, it is essential that suppliers of industrial robot sensors provide easily customizable and affordable robot sensors.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
