Collaborative robots are also known as cobots. This new technology is used in different factories and help the workers to perform their tasks by tracking them and corrects them if there occurs deviation from their tasks. This tends to be reasonable, accessible and it can physically interact with human. Collaborative robots are user friendly, flexible as compared to conventional industrial robots. They work as an assist device to humans and help increase the efficiency and quality of the work done.
Collaborative robots market is expected to grow during the forecast period. The rising need for collaborative robots in automation industry is acting as a driver for this market and is expected to serve as a market opportunity for future growth. In addition various countries across the world are reviving up their electronics and consumer goods industry, which is in turn contributing to the growing demand for collaborative robots. Another addition, need for decreasing man power while operating various type of machine is driving the demand for collaborative robots worldwide. Additionally, the small and medium sized enterprises (SME) are focuses on higher return on investment facilities; therefore the reasonable collaborative robots are attracting them. Due to this factor the market of collaborative robots is boosting significantly and is expected to do same during the forecast period. However high technology industries such as IT sector, automotive sector, manufacturing hub, electronics and consumer goods and others are facing a challenge from short supply of skilled operators.Collaborative robots require expert operators for its complex technology. However, small and medium sized enterprises (SME) cannot afford to invest large capital to train the operators. This factor is likely to affect the growth of the collaborative robots market globally. With the increase in demand for collaborative robots, the companies are investing in proper training of the robot operators. Owing to these factors, the impact of this restraint is estimated to remain low during the forecast period.The ongoing technological advancement in the collaborative robots industry is acting as an opportunity for the market. Moreover with the inclination of different countries towards adoption of collaborative robots coupled with high payload carrying capacity cobots are generating opportunities and is expected to rise during the forecast period.
