Industrial Robotics Revenue will Reach $45B in 2025

Artificial intelligence and robotics were top technology policy issues debated at the World Economic Forum 2017 in Davos last week. Meanwhile, new economic reports indicate that globalization trends and technology continue to raise concerns as more people assess the global employment impact.

However, technology vendors typically don't focus on the social impact of their products. Besides, the current market data can be interpreted in a variety of ways. As an example, more new jobs will be created across the globe to support the industrial robotics growth phenomenon.

Industrial Robotics Market Development

ABI Research forecasts that industrial robot shipments will exhibit an average year-over-year (YOY) growth rate of 16 percent by 2021.

As industrial robots continue to infiltrate the workforce to increase production efficiency, this will result in annual revenue exceeding $30 billion in 2020 and nearly $45 billion in 2025.

The automotive sector will remain the leading acquirer of industrial robotic systems, even as it loses share to other growing industry verticals, including the electrical and electronics, rubber, and plastics industries.

That being said, according to the ABI assessment, the food and food packaging, pharmaceutical and cosmetics segments will demonstrate the fastest growth over the next decade.

"The industrial robotic market is driven by the demand for increasing levels of speed, precision, and production flexibility," said Philip Solis, research director at ABI Research.

Other demand contributors include the introduction of robotics automation into industries that did not previously benefit from robotic industrial automation -- or new classes of robot and artificial intelligence applications.

ABI Research analysts believe that government driven manufacturing initiatives, such as entrepreneurship and investment programs, as well as public-private partnerships and re-shoring efforts, also provide momentum for the sector.

Outlook for Industrial Robotics Growth

The Asia-Pacific region currently leads in shipments of industrial robots, accounting for approximately 65 percent of the global market, with China responsible for roughly one-third of worldwide shipments.

ABB accounts for nearly one-half of worldwide shipments, with Yaskawa Electric Corporation, Kuka Robotics Corporation, Fanuc Corporation, Kawasaki Precision Machinery Company, Yamaha Robotics, Stäubli International AG, Nachi Fujikoshi Corporation and Epson Robots as other major shipment contributors.

Big Data Analytics Revenue to Reach $215.7 Billion

Across the globe, more leaders seek actionable insight from the customer data they've stored in huge data lakes. Worldwide spending on big data and business analytics (BDA) solutions is forecast to reach $215.7 billion in 2021 -- that's an increase of 10.1 percent over 2020, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Moreover, BDA technology investment will likely gain momentum over the next five years as the global economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for global BDA spending over the 2021-2025 forecast period will be 12.8 percent. Big Data Analytics Market Development "As executives seek solutions to enable better, faster decisions, we're seeing relatively healthy BDA spending across all industries. Leveraging data for insights into everything from internal business operations to the customer journey is top of mind and of strategic importance," said Jessica Goepfert, vice

Warehouse Robot Deployment Gains New Momentum

The retail and wholesale back-office infrastructure market is being transformed by technology. The warehousing industry has accelerated automation efforts due to the increased order volume and labor shortages driven by the global pandemic. In addition to technology solutions such as handheld devices with enhanced capabilities, autonomous, collaborative, and mobile robots are proving to be the fastest-growing productivity-enhancing solution in the warehouse workspace. Commercial Robotics Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, global commercial robot revenue in warehouses will have a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of over 23 percent from 2021 to 2030 and exceed $51 billion by 2030. "Mobile robots are at the heart of the warehouse robotics market and account for most shipments and revenue. These robots, made up of Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs), are being used to move goods within the warehouse a

Hybrid Work: How to Enhance Employee Productivity

When you hire qualified talent for a key role and trust them to perform, you'll likely achieve the best outcome. Skilled and experienced people will deliver results, regardless of the challenges. That's a key lesson learned from the pandemic experience as most knowledge workers were asked to work from their homes. However, some resist returning to an open-plan office. It's unacceptable. Meanwhile, forward-thinking leaders decided a "return to normal" is undesirable, and in hindsight, everyone should aspire to be more accomodating than before. Therefore, location flexibility is okay. Hybrid Workforce Market Development How will people adapt to these changes? They'll apply the modern IT tools at their disposal. They'll learn new skills and thrive. Nearly 80 percent of employees are now successfully using online collaboration tools for work in 2021 -- that's up from just over half of workers in 2019, according to the latest market study by Gartner.
