The industrial robotics market size is projected to reach US$ 48,166.9 million by 2025 from US$ 16,847.6 million in 2017; it is expected to witness healthy market growth of 14.2% CAGR during 2018–2025.

The industrial robotics market operates in a highly competitive marketplace. As leading companies in the industrial robotics market continues to broaden its addressable market by expanding its current product portfolio, diversifying its client base, and developing new applications and markets, all prominent players face an increasing level of competition, both from regional players as well as the leading global companies across the world. Companies such as ABB are aggressively investing in next-generation robotic technology; recently, KUKA AG was acquired by Midea Group Co. of China, one of the leading electrical manufacturers. This trend can be seen across a broad range of robotics companies.

In addition, industrial robotics are in high demand in industries such as automotive, pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics, packaging, and machinery. This need, however, is predicated on the type of robot that they need to place across their sites to harness industrial activity and cut costs. Players in the consumer electronics industry, for instance, could install collaborative robots at a faster rate to increase production flexibility. For instance, Nissan Motor Company purchased two lines of UR10 collaborative robot arms from Universal Robots for its Yokohama facility to cut labor costs while maintaining the efficiency of production procedures such as Takt Time. Consumer electronics, pharmaceuticals, and manufacturing companies have a significant investment stake in the industrial robotics market. Therefore, there are heavy investments taking place in the market that are driving the industrial robotics market growth.

Furthermore, consumers' increasing preference for online purchasing is helping the e-commerce industry. Distributors, merchants, warehouses, and facility owners are increasingly focusing on integrated automated robotic systems. The goal is to deliver on time, save money on labor, and improve efficiency and production in every step. This is one of the most important considerations for the deployment of industrial robots, which is thereby expanding the market size of the industrial robotics market. For example, every year, labor costs in the UK rise by more than 12%, resulting in a labor shortage. To address these issues, market participants are investing in industrial robotics. For instance, in January 2022, the chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, invested in robotics to help the UK people and economy deal with the inflation crisis brought on by labor shortages. Similarly, many firms are also creating interesting solutions across the whole logistics value chain, such as self-driving trucks, intelligent warehouses, and service robots.
