Asia-Pacific Collaborative Robot Market By Component (Hardware, Software), By Safety Method (Power and Force Limiting, Safety Rated Monitored Stop, Speed and Separation Monitoring, Hand Guiding), By Solution (Camera Based 3D Space Monitoring System, Safe Gripping, Safety laser scanner, Safety Light Curtain), By Payload Capacity (Less than 5kg, 5Kg to 10Kg, above 10 kg), By Application (Packaging, Pick and Place / Drop, Assembly, Machine Tending, Material Handling, Lab Analysis, Quality Testing, Test and Inspection, Gluing and Welding, Molding Operation, Polishing, Others), By End User (Automotive, Electrical and Electronics, Metals and Machining, Plastic and Polymers, Aerospace and Defense, Food and Beverages, Furniture and Equipment, Pharmaceuticals, Entertainment, Cosmetics, Others), Countries (Japan, China, South Korea, India, Australia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Rest of Asia-Pacific) – Industry Trends and Forecast to 2026
A collaborative robot is capable of performing multiple tasks, as assisted by the humans. In contrast, autonomous robots are built to perform same task repeatedly and work independently. Collaborative robots have additional features, such as safety monitored stop, hand guiding, speed & separation monitoring, and power & force limiting. There are various types of collaborative robots that are used in industries like safety monitored stop is used to stop the functioning of robot when the safety zone violates; hand guiding is used for path teaching and detection of applied forces; speed & separation monitoring is used for operations requiring frequent worker presence, and power & force limiting is used for the direct collaboration with workers. Collaborative robots are being used in multiple verticals, which include supply chain management, manufacturing, and healthcare. Few force limited robot models are Universal Robots UR3, UR5, UR10, Rethink Robotics Baxter, Sawyer, KUKA LBR iiwa, ABB Yumi, Fanuc CR-35iA, and F&P Robotics among other robots.
Asia-Pacific collaborative robot market is projected to register a highest CAGR in the forecast period of 2019 to 2026.
