Global Robotic Grippers Market Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast Report 2022-2030: Introduction of Plug-And-Play Technology in Robotic Grippers to Overcome Interoperability Problems


Dublin, Feb. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Robotic Grippers Market by Type, by Design by Application, and by Vertical- Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2022-2030" report has been added to's offering.

The Robotic Grippers Market size was valued at USD 1.16 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach USD 3.04 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 10.9% during the forecast period, 2022 -2030.

Collaborative robots equipped with robotic grippers are becoming more popular in industrial applications, such as packaging, product handling, inspection, and shorting. These robots are in high demand due to their compact size and cost-effectiveness, which improves the overall efficiency of manufacturing facilities.

Moreover, robotic grippers are becoming smarter with technology such as artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and big data to improve connectivity, productivity, and efficiency, further driving the market growth. However, interoperability issues related to robotic grippers, as well as the lack of skilled labor that can operate specialized robot grippers remotely, are restraining the market growth.

On the contrary, the introduction of plug-and-play technology in robotic grippers to overcome interoperability problems and the growing demand for electric grippers in various industry verticals are expected to create ample opportunities for the key players operating in the robotic grippers market during the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific market is projected to hold the dominant share by 2030

Asia Pacific dominates the robotic grippers market and is expected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the factors such as the presence of large manufacturing industries in countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea that are constantly improving their production capacity to cope with the rising consumer demand. Furthermore, the continually growing population in these countries fuels the demand for consumer goods, which has led to the adoption of robotics in industries.

Manufacturing industries use industrial robots and collaborative robots with robotic grippers for various tasks such as pelletizing or depalletizing, shorting, assembling, and product handling. In addition, increasing labor shortages have further influenced the use of robots and robotic grippers in Asia-Pacific. Furthermore, the presence of leading robotic gripper manufacturers such as Fanuc, Yaskawa Electric Corporation, and Robotics Kawasaki Heavy Industries in the Asia-Pacific boosts the market growth in the region.

For instance, in April 2021, Yaskawa Electric Corporation launched the MOTOMAN Smart Series robot and gripper tools as a plug & play system. The Smart Series offers ready-made packages that include all accessories, such as gripper elements, adapter flanges, communication cables, and plugs from different manufacturers for easy integration.
