London, Aug. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A collaborative robot (Cobot) is defined as a robot specifically designed for interaction with a human within a defined and safeguarded workspace where the robot and a human can perform tasks simultaneously during automatic operation. The human robot interaction happens during collaborative operation which is a state in which purpose designed robots can safely work with cooperation of a human. Collaborative robots have application in multiple industry verticals such as automotive, electronics, food & beverages, metals & machinery, plastic & polymer, construction, logistics, packaging, and healthcare.

The collaborative robots market is expected to reach $1.43 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 22.6% by value and 56,479 units by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 26.1% by volume during the forecast period of 2020 to 2027. The growth in this market is mainly attributed to the factors such as advancements in human-machine interface to enhance industrial production, rapidly evolving advanced software to enhance human safety, and increasing adoption due to ease of programming of collaborative robots. Moreover, the rising implementation of collaborative robots in non-manufacturing applications such as logistics and packaging; and declining prices are some of the key factors boosting the adoption of collaborative robots. However, the lack of proper training for human operators and lack of high-speed operation and faster cycle time capabilities hinders the growth of this market.

The overall collaborative robots market is segmented on the basis of application, end-user, component, payload, and geography. Based on application, the collaborative robots market is segmented into material handling, assembly line, machine tending, welding, and inspection. In 2020, the material handling segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the overall collaborative robots market. The large share of this segment is mainly attributed to the factors such as increasing production efficiency, high speed and accuracy of operations, low maintenance cost, speed and strength of material handling, and compact design of robots. Further, the material handling and logistics is a major application in various end-use industries such as automotive, electronics, metals, and machineries. Since, these industry verticals contribute a major share of the overall collaborative robots market, the material handling and logistics segment is also estimated to command the largest share. However, the assembly line segment and machine tending application are the high growth applications during the forecast period.
