Production efficiencies, speed, precision, and production flexibility is at the core of stakes. The introduction of robotics automations into industries that did not previously benefit from robotic industrial automation or new classes of applications is on an interesting curve. Governmental and political manufacturing initiatives, such as entrepreneurship and investment programs, as well as public-private partnerships and reshoring efforts, also provide momentum for this technology.
ABI Research reveals that, the Asia-Pacific region currently leads in shipments of industrial robots, accounting for approximately 65% of the global market, with China responsible for roughly one-third of worldwide shipments.
Yaskawa Electric Corporation, Kuka Robotics Corporation, Fanuc Corporation, Kawasaki Precision Machinery Company, Yamaha Robotics, Stäubli International AG, Nachi Fujikoshi Corporation and Epson Robots are now billed as major shipment contributors.
