The automotive industry is highly dynamic, requiring extreme flexibility from auto manufacturers. Thus the manufacturers are increasingly expanding their core competencies by incorporating smart product systems and flexible logistics systems. The automotive industry has been making use of industrial robotics in their production process for many years now. Robotic systems in the automotive industry are cost effective, efficient and safe as they are capable of discharging their job quicker than their human counterpart. The reduction in operating costs can be achieved by improving operational flexibility along with minimizing raw material wastage and errors in the workflow, which in turn enhances the profitability of the manufacturers.

By Product Analysis

China Manufacturing 2030 strategy includes various sectors that receive attention in which high-end numerical control machinery and robotics are also included.

The demand for articulated robotics is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 17.4% from 2021 to 2030. The articulated robot is widely used in the assembly line as they are highly flexible than the other robots’ due to the number of axes present.

Other robots such as cartesian, cylindrical, and polar are employed in painting, and pick & place applications will require small payload but a large movement range.

By Application Analysis

The welding application segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.3 % over the forecast period. The automotive industry utilizes robots extensively for spot welding and with the increased demand for automotive, the use of robots in the welding process has also increased.

The material handling segment was estimated at USD 1,005.7 million in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.9% over the forecast period, 2021 to 2030.

By Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific automotive robotics market was valued at USD 3,509.5 million in 2021. Due to rising labor costs and the aging population in China, the country is concentrating on encouraging domestic manufacturing through automation rather than offshore manufacturing. North America market for automotive robotics is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 15.9% over the forecast period, 2021 to 2030.
