Hardware component segment is dominant

In terms of component, the global modular robotics market has been segmented into hardware, software, and services. Modular robotics consist of a large number of multiple hardware modules that can vary according to the given task. Furthermore, these connected multiple modules enable change in the size as well as shape of the robot as per the given task. Additionally, various end-effectors including clamps, grippers, and modules are provided by several companies, which can be attached to modular-type robots to perform a particular task. These end-effectors come with different specifications so as to cater to specific applications. Moreover, the hardware component segment is dominant, as modular robotics consist of several hardware components that can be applied interchangeably, which gives modular robotics a longer lifespan.

Cobots segment to expand significantly

In terms of robot type, the modular robotics market has been divided into cobots, articulated robots, SCARA, and others. Cobots i.e. collaborative robots perform tasks in collaboration with workers in an industrial environment. Currently, the demand for collaborative modular robots is not significant; however, it is expected to increase a high rate during the forecast period. The significant growth rate can be attributed to various advantages offered by cobots. Significantly automated industries, such as automotive and electronics, which are prominent users of industrial robots, are developing collaborative robots alongside traditional industrial robots to perform certain tasks. Moreover, with the advancement in technologies pertaining to end-effectors such as grippers, controllers, and various robotic modules, adoption of collaborative robots is projected to increase across the global manufacturing industry in the next few years.

Asia Pacific to continue to hold a major share of the global modular robotics market

In terms of revenue, Asia Pacific accounts for a major share of the global market for modular robotics. Leading share of this region is primarily attributable to strong presence of well-established players and dominance of highly automated industries, such as automotive and electronics, across the region; especially in prominent economies such as China, Japan, South Korea, and India. These well-established players include Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd., and FANUC CORPORATION. Furthermore, presence of a prominent electronics industry, rising sales of local robot suppliers, and growing industrial automation across the region are factors driving the market in Asia Pacific. However, the market in Europe is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, owing to significant adoption of industrial automation across automotive, food & beverages, and electronics industries in the region and the region being home to numerous well-established as well as emerging players including Universal Robots A/S, KUKA AG, and ABB. These players are innovating new modular robotics products and helping manufacturers in reducing the production cost.
