Dublin, July 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Collaborative Robot (COBOT) Market: Analysis By Payload Capacity, By End User, By Application, By Region Size and Trends with Impact of COVID-19 and Forecast up to 2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global collaborative robot market was valued at US$894.60 million in 2021. The market is projected to reach US$3.21 billion by 2026.

A collaborative robot is a machine that works in conjunction with humans, such as by serving as a guide or assistant during a task or activity. In contrast to autonomous robots, which function mostly independently and without supervision, collaborative robots are designed and built to respond to human commands and actions. In order to ensure safe behavior, cobots are typically made to be lightweight and fitted with sensors.

Automation helps in increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing errors. Rising demand for automation has rapidly increased the adoption of robots in various industries. The growing demand for automation in industries and smart factories would drive the market growth. The collaborative robot market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 27.10% over the forecast period 2022 to 2026.

Global Collaborative Robot Market Dynamics:

Growth drivers: The market has been growing over the past few years, due to factors such as rise of smart factories, growing electronics industry, working force moving toward tertiary industry, rising labor wage in manufacturing, growth in the automotive industry, rise in use of cobots by SMEs, etc. The number of smart factories has been growing quickly, since they cut costs and production process time. Robots and automation tools are everywhere in these smart factories. In the production process of smart factories, collaborative robots are crucial. Intelligent automation made possible by collaborative robots enables for the creation of safer, more effective workplaces where interaction between machines and people ensures that each of their individual qualities and skills are fully utilized.

Challenges: However, the market has been confronted with some challenges specifically, cyber security issues, speed issue, etc. Cyber security has become a serious issue to collaborative robot users. Since robots may acquire and keep a tremendous amount of personal information, therefore the risk of data breaches is increased. Robots may be the target of cyber or hacking assaults. A collaborative robot could manufacture components incorrectly if a hacker takes control of it. The manufacturer would be at risk of not being able to use whatever it is now developing in the future, which would result in huge losses. Further, more speed issue of collaborative robot would restrain the growth of the market.

Trends: The market is projected to grow at a fast pace during the forecast period, due to various latest trends such as advancements in robotics, 5G network exposure, end of arm tooling (EOAT), etc. New technologies are introduced to the collaborative robots so that cobots can perform difficult tasks. Artificial intelligence software combined with vision and other sensory technology allows robots to perform challenging tasks. Due new advancements adoption of collaborative robot is growing in the automotive sector. Moreover, 5G network brings up new opportunities for high-tech warehouses and industrial plants, where collaborative robots coexist with other cutting-edge technologies. The market would see a notable factors due to these factors.

Impact Analysis of COVID-19 and Way Forward:


People all throughout the world have been impacted financially and psychologically by the COVID-19 pandemic. Lockdowns and severe restrictions on air and land transport were implemented by Governments everywhere. Many governments were unable to control the virus despite the stringent limitations, leading to a high fatality rate in their respective nations. Till the end of 2019, the collaborative robot market growth trend was positive.

However, the COVID-19 outbreak further restricted market expansion and investment in collaborative robots, which was expected to increase in 2020 but the market could not perform well due to the pandemic. This may also be explained by the fact that the largest original equipment manufacturer for collaborative robot was particularly heavily struck by the pandemic, which only exacerbated the issues for suppliers and manufacturers of collaborative robots at the time.

In spite of COVID-19's effects and uncertainties, merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the robotics industry persisted in the first half of 2021. Due to the intense competition and businesses' desire to diversify their portfolios, a number of deals took place during that period. Moreover, the technological developments brought after COVID-19 outbreak is expected to assist the market growth further.

Competitive Landscape:


The key players of the global collaborative robot market are:

  • Teradyne Inc. (Universal Robot)

  • Fanuc Corporation

  • ABB Group

  • KUKA Group

  • Yaskawa Electric Corporation

  • Kawasaki Heavy Industries
