The global automotive industrial robots market is expected to reach US$13.6 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 13.8%. The growing adaptation of automation and robotics within the automotive industry is a major factor that is expected to drive the growth of the market.

Industrial revolutions and government initiatives to automate manufacturing sectors are driving the sales of automotive robots. Governments provide R&D tax exemptions and tax reductions that will reduce the cost of manufacturing and improve manufacturing opportunities in countries rather than opting for overseas manufacturing.

Based on segment, the automotive industry accounts for the highest share of the industrial robotics market. About 28% of all industrial robot installations take place in the automotive industry. The industrial robotics market in the electrical and electronics industry is probably the most affected by the Sino-American trade crisis, since Asian countries (e.g. China, Japan, Republic of Korea) are leaders in the manufacture of electronic products and components.

The automotive industry is the largest industry, with over 130,000 units installed in all facilities worldwide. 95% of senior executives at automotive companies with revenues exceeding $11 billion believe there will be a significant increase in investment in robotics and automation over the forecast period. However, 82% of automotive organizations lack resource alignment and readiness to execute faster changes to increase revenue, profit and safety. This is an incredible opportunity for robot manufacturers to market their machines to OEMs.

The automotive industry has been using industrial robotics in the production process for many years. A large portion of automotive robots are held by articulated robots, and by function, welding makes the greatest use of robots in the automotive industry. Robotic systems in the automotive industry are cost-effective, efficient, and safe because they can perform their jobs faster than their human counterparts.
