Dublin, Sept. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Clean Room Robot Market with COVID-19 Impact Analysis by Type (Articulated, SCARA, Collaborative Robots), End User (Aerospace, Electrical & Electronics, Food & Beverage), Component (Robotic Arm, End Effector), and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The clean room robot market (including prices of peripherals, software, and system engineering) was valued at USD 5.6 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow to USD 8.5 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 12.0% from 2020 to 2025.
The robotic arm segment to hold the largest share of the cleanroom robot market in 2020
The robotic arms segment held the largest share of the component market in 2019. The robotic arm is one of the most expensive hardware components in a robot, and its design can often be time-consuming and complex. The arm has to be built according to the ISO/TS 15066 standard and certified for the same.
The designing of the robotic arm for collaborative robots is more detailed than it is for traditional industrial robots. When compared to traditional industrial robots, collaborative robots often have a curved arm to make it safe for human contact. Inside its complex design, the arm also has to house the drives, motors, and sensors, while providing the maximum level of dust and water resistance, which can often be challenging.
Articulated robots to hold the largest share of cleanroom robot market in 2020
Articulated robots held the largest share of the cleanroom robot market in 2019. This is because articulated robots have the highest number of joints and offer the highest degree of motion. Therefore, they can be adopted for a wide number of applications and can also be altered more easily if the product or the process changes.
The market for SCARA robots is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is because they cost lesser than articulated robots and offer a considerable degree of freedom with 4 axes. Articulated robots can cost between USD 19,000 and USD 120,000, whereas SCARA robots can cost between USD 10,000 and USD 50,000. Also, SCARA robots occupy less space than cartesian and parallel robots and are therefore more adopted than cartesian and parallel robots.
In 2020, APAC to hold the largest share of the cleanroom robot market.
In 2020, APAC to hold the largest share of the cleanroom robot market. This is due to the presence of the world's most populous countries such as China and India. The large population gives rise to a huge demand for cleanroom robots in the manufacturing of fiber optics from the telecommunication industry. Also, APAC countries have a strong IT industry due to the availability of a cheap workforce.
For instance, according to India's Ministry of Commerce & Industry, in January 2020, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone, a Japanese tech announced its plans to invest a significant part of its USD-7-billion global commitment for a data center business in India over the next years. This is expected to further increase the demand for cleanroom robots in the optics industry. Due to the large population, the food & beverage industry is also flourishing in APAC.
According to the Population Reference Bureau, in 2019, China had the largest population, followed by India. Also, countries such as Japan and South Korea are major manufacturers of robots; therefore, this further boosts the cleanroom robot market in APAC. The electronics industry is also booming in APAC due to the increasing buying capacity and cheap labor. For instance, according to the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, per capita income in India increased by 6.8% in 2019.
Even after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides, the regional trends might remain the same. Many industry experts expect the COVID-19 pandemic to mainly impact supply chains. However, considering the sizable backlog that key players such as FANUC (Japan) and KUKA (Germany) have, the manufacturing and delivery of cleanroom robots are expected to slow down for the first 2 or 3 quarters of the FY 2020. For instance, for the FY 2019, the Robotics business division of KUKA (Germany) had order backlogs worth USD 309 million (EUR 276 million).
In APAC, electrical and electronics is the most important industry adopting industrial robots. However, with the adverse impact of COVID-19, the growth of the cleanroom robot market in countries such as China and India is expected to be delayed, impacting the overall growth of the market in APAC for the next 3-6 months. In February 2020, China's manufacturing PMI was 35.7 points from 14.3 points in January 2020. Meanwhile, in February 2020, its production index was 27.8%, down by 23.5% from the previous month, thereby indicating a radical slowdown in manufacturing activities. The US-China trade war also added to this decline.
