Industrial Robots article
The report "Global Industrial Robot Market: Analysis by Industry, by Type, by Region, Size and Trends with Impact of COVID-19 and Forecast Up to 2026" valued the global industrial robot market at $33.90 billion in 2021 and projected it to $61.09 billion by 2026. Because of increased productivity and efficiency, lower manufacturing costs, and lower overall product purchase prices. Industry 4.0 has accelerated the development of collaborative robots and artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled robots, allowing industries to streamline processes, increase productivity, and reduce errors.

Sectors are investing in robotic systems as the next generation of industrial robots becomes cheaper, autonomous, more mobile, cooperative, and adaptable. During the forecast period of 2022 to 2026, the industrial robot market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.50%.


The Dynamics of the global industrial robot market


Growth Drivers:

Automation boosts productivity, raises quality, and decreases errors. Rising automation demand has increased the adoption of robots in various industries, and rising automation demand is a major market driver. The growing electronics industry, rapid installation of industrial robots, high wages, and the growing role of AI in robotics are all expected to drive growth in the industrial robot market.


Challenges:

The purchase and installation of robots requires significant capital investment, and the benefits provided may take many years to outweigh the initial cost. The high initial investment required for industrial robot-assisted production automation may act as a barrier to the market's growth. Other market challenges include safety concerns and privacy concerns.


Trends:

The development of collaborative robots, or co-bots, is a growing trend in robotics. Cobots are designed to collaborate with humans and are increasingly being used in industrial applications. Cobots use safety-rated sensors, which allow laborers to work in the same area without being harmed.

Other trends that are expected to drive the growth of the engineering industry with the help of robot market during the forecasted period include the use of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), the rise of the cloud robotics market, next-generation tech accessories, and job opportunities in industrial robotic advancements.

Hilti Launches New Digital Layout Tool to Boost Productivity

Hilti | January 27, 2023

On January 26, 2023, Hilti North America, a provider of innovative tools, software, technology, and services for the commercial construction industry, introduced the PLT 400, a digital layout tool created to help increase the productivity of jobsite layout crews. Single-operator tools like the PLT 400 are vital due to continued labor shortages and jobsite restrictions. This tool improves accuracy and layout speed, features advanced prism tracking and auto-calibration, and requires minimal training. Improved technology, faster layout, and fewer labor hours contribute to a cost-saving and productivity-boosting solution for jobsites. The PLT 400 can lay out digital BIM (Building Information Modeling) designed plans without the time-consuming step of creating points on the plans first. It can also help keep your BIM model up to date during the construction process, contributing to an optimized end-to-end workflow. The company's digital construction software is also compatible with AutoCAD, Revit, and other specialized layout platforms. The layout tool works in tandem with Hilti's entire solutions ecosystem, including ON!Track and the Fleet program. Aside from access to high-performance tools and cutting-edge technology, Fleet customers also receive free verification of tool accuracy, complying with manufacturer specifications and theft coverage to reduce unexpected expenses and financial risk. In addition, the PLT 400 comes with an industry-leading Tool Warranty and is available in the United States and Canada. Michael Haugtvedt, Product Manager at Hilti North America, shared, "We took customer feedback on our previous total stations and addressed those pain points with the launch of the PLT 400." He added, "This camera-based tool has enhanced prism tracking and upgraded communications making sure you stay connected and increase layout productivity on the jobsite, while a built-in calibration module helps ensure your layout is within spec every time you turn the tool on." (Source – PR Newswire) About Hilti North America Based in Plano, Texas, Hilti provides technology to make construction more efficient, sustainable, and safer. The company's products, systems, and services provide construction professionals with innovative solutions with exceptional added value.
