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.

Digital Transformation Spending Reaches $1.8 Trillion

Ongoing investment in business technology will remain on track, despite concerns about the global economic outlook which continues to evolve in 2022. Enterprise CIOs and CTOs are focused on operational profitability and digital business growth goals that are enabled by strategic IT initiatives. Global spending on the Digital Transformation (DX) of business practices, products, and organizations is forecast to reach $1.8 trillion in 2022 -- that's an increase of 17.6 percent over 2021, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Many anticipated DX investments will sustain this pace of growth throughout the 2021-2025 forecast period, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.6 percent. Digital Transformation Global Market Development "IDC expects to see aggressive DX technology investment growth in 2022 following a minor slowdown during the pandemic period," said Craig Simpson, senior research manager at IDC .

Why Cloud-Native is The Future of IT Spending

The leading organizations that create a digital transformation plan will gain the most from their use of public cloud computing. However, some CIO and CTO leaders still struggle with how to build a modern cloud migration strategy. The worldwide cloud computing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) market grew 41.4 percent in 2021, to a total of $90.9 billion -- that's up from $64.3 billion in 2020, according to the latest market study by Gartner. "The IaaS market continues to grow unabated as cloud-native becomes the primary architecture for modern workloads," said Sid Nag, vice president and analyst at Gartner . Cloud IaaS Market Development Cloud supports the scalability and composability that advanced technologies and applications require, while also enabling enterprise leaders to address emerging needs such as sovereignty, data integration, and enhanced customer experience. In 2021, the top five IaaS providers accounted for over 80 percent of the market. Amazon AWS conti

Private 5G Networks and Enterprise Wi-Fi Converge

The global enterprise wireless networking market is evolving. Driven by a desire to take advantage of the available 6 GHz communications spectrum, with greatly improved broadband throughput and latency rates, more organizations may choose to adopt Wi-Fi 6E technologies. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, shipments of Wi-Fi 6E access points and routers will rise from 1.5 million units in 2022 to 5.2 million units by 2024. Wireless spectrum expansion is just one facet of the commercial wireless network market transition, as the technology of Wi-Fi customer premise equipment will be upgraded once again with Wi-Fi 7 (IEEE 802.11be standard) devices. Enterprise Wireless Network Market Development "The adoption of Wi-Fi 7 access points will accelerate following the protocols standardization in 2024, and just two years later, most 6 GHz enabled access point shipments will be supporting Wi-Fi 7," said Andrew Spivey, industry analyst at ABI Research .
