Conclusion. Machine vision systems have a wide range of applications in industrial automation. They enable industrial robots to perform complex tasks reliably and accurately, and allow companies to achieve previously impossible levels of efficiency and productivity. Machine vision has developed significantly over the last ten years and is now essential to many industries.
The report offers a holistic overview of the Industrial Robot Market with the help of application segments and geographical regions that govern the market currently. Further, the report delves deep into the value chain of the Industrial Robot market so as to emerge with information specific areas that hold high revenue-generating potential. With the Industrial Robot market having undergone certain inherent shifts in the past decades, the report discusses how these changes will impact the future.
For companies to succeed, along with trying to create a fully employed economy, the biggest factor is cost efficiency. More and more companies rely on the cheapest alternative to produce outputs, in hopes of earning profits. Boston Consulting Group reports that it costs roughly $8 an hour to use a robot for spot welding in the auto industry, compared to $25 for a worker.
Even more critical, other costs like training costs especially in countries where there is inadequate skilled manpower will force the manufacture to invest in staff training and this will make offshore manufacturing unviable. Also because of competition and the supposedly cheaper labor may make it harder for the foreign investor to retain the workers he has invested heavily to train. This may result in a higher turnover of employees hence straining the operating finances.
U.S. manufacturing is much more automated than it was thirty years ago. Automation equipment, such as welding robots, perform the manufacturing tasks. Human workers maintain and program the robots. This requires a lot of technical knowledge. The demand of robot programmers is high.
Companies are increasingly deploying industrial logistics robots to enhance their automated processes and achieve a competitive edge. Furthermore, these robots facilitate flexible systems and end-to-end process improvement, which has added to the demand from the global industrial logistics robots market. However, the fact that every logistics robotic system needs customization prior to deployment will restrain the global industrial logistics robots market.
