The industrial robots have not yet achieved economies of scale, illustrating the market opportunity that will come quickly after economies of scale are achieved. New technology and improved controllers open the path to economies of scale for industrial robots. As this occurs a new industrial revolution will occur. There are massive numbers of products offered by each major industrial robot vendor. Product consolidation is occurring in the market. Customization of a few products to increase product volume hold the promise of changing the market so it functions at a level that means devices that basically have eluded economies of scale in the past, will now be able to be mass produced.
