Interact Analysis have recently published a new market report providing insight and analysis into components in the industrial robot market.

The below infographic demonstrates some of our key findings.

Components In Industrial Robots Infographic

– The global market for components used in industrial and collaborative robots was estimated to be worth $7bn in 2020, and forecast to be worth in excess of $9.3bn by 2025.

– End effectors represented the single largest component market, worth just over $1.8 billion in 2020. The market will grow at an above average rate and will be worth in excess of $2.5 billion by 2025.

– Despite a trendline towards a reduction in price of key components used in robots; for 2021, most key components have experienced price increases in the range of 2%-4%, but like-for-like component pricing has increased by more like 4-6%.

– Semiconductor shortages, higher shipping costs, raw material price increases and general inflationary pressure have caused these increases.

– Servo motors used in industrial robots was worth just under $900 million in 2020, but by 2025 the market opportunity is projected to grow to nearly $1.2 billion.

– Compared with Japan and China, the revenue opportunity for components in other regions of the world remains small. In 2020 Japan = 47%, China = 27%, Rest of the world = 26%. In 2025 Japan = 43%, China = 32%, Rest of the world = 25%.

– Motors, drives and gearboxes combined will exceed the value of the end effector market-although a much higher proportion of the drives and motors market is considered “captive.”
