Robotics is used to automate processes, increase productivity, reduce human errors and enhance quality through the combination of machine tools and computer applications. Robotic development requires an integration of high quality hardware and software to control the robot’s operation. Manufacturers are developing low cost, compact, small and energy efficient robotic systems in order to be used in various industries such as manufacturing, construction, healthcare, defence, aerospace, infrastructure and automotive.
The global robotics market segmentation is based on the type of robots and components. On the basis of type of robots, the market is divided into mobile robots, industrial robots and service robots. However, on the basis of components, the robotics market can be further segmented into hardware, software and services. The hardware components include controllers, power supply, sensors, controllers and actuators.
Manufacturers are preferring process automation due to the rise in labour costs and market competition. As a result, robots are taking on more jobs in the manufacturing industry such as testing or inspecting products, picking and packaging, material handling, welding, assembling minute electronics, etc. Robots are being trained with more human capabilities such as trainability, dexterity, memory and sensing in order to improve workplace safety, overall productivity and the product quality.
A need for enhanced productivity while maintaining the quality is the primary influential factor for the use of robotics in construction industry. Construction robots are used for basic tasks such as building, attaching, covering, positioning, demolishing, tunnelling, scaffolding, repairing elements, concreting, connecting, coating, jointing, finishing, drilling, earthmoving and inspecting. Construction robots help to reduce manual labour and construction time, improve productivity and quality, and increase safety in a hazardous working environment. The global construction robots market is driven by increased
construction of mega structures and high quality infrastructure.
