SCARA Robot Market by Application (Handling and Assembling & Disassembling), Industry (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Metals & Machinery, Food & Beverages), and Payload Capacity (Up to 5.00 kg, 5.01–15.00 kg) - Partner & Customer Ecosystem (Product Services, Proposition & Key Features) Competitive Index & Regional Footprints by MarketDigits - Forecast 2024-2032

Industry : Information Technology | Pages : 180 Pages | Upcoming : Jun 2024


The SCARA Robot Market, which includes the prices of peripherals, software, and system engineering, is anticipated to witness substantial growth from USD 6.4 billion in 2022 to USD 10.4 billion by 2030, with a projected CAGR of 10.3%.

One of the primary drivers behind this market growth is the increasing demand to minimize human effort and errors in the production process. Additionally, the electronics industry's rising adoption of SCARA robots is contributing to the expansion of the market.

During the forecast period, SCARA robots with a payload capacity of up to 5.00 kg are expected to hold the largest market share and maintain dominance. These robots are predominantly utilized for various applications, including material handling, inspection and testing, and dispensing. With their ability to deliver high accuracy and repeatability in high-speed pick and place operations, SCARA robots with lower payload capacities are widely employed. Their compact workspace and lighter weight allow for easy redeployment. Furthermore, they are increasingly being used for precision deburring and cutting tasks, particularly in the production of components like printed circuit boards (PCBs).

Handling application to dominate SCARA robot market during forecast period
SCARA robots are employed in various handling applications, enabling the transportation of objects and automating tedious and unsafe tasks on production lines. These robots play a crucial role in shop floors that involve continuous movement, performing tasks like pick and place, palletizing, loading and unloading, packaging, and machine tending. With their impressive attributes such as high speed, torque, motion sequence, dynamics, and positioning accuracy, SCARA robots meet the operational requirements for material handling with efficiency. The market for handling applications is expected to witness significant growth due to the increasing demand for SCARA robots in industries such as electrical & electronics and food & beverages, where they excel in tasks like pick and place, sorting, and packaging.

During the forecast period from 2019 to 2024, the electrical & electronics industry is anticipated to dominate the SCARA robot market. This industry is experiencing substantial growth globally, driven by the rising demand for electronic devices like smartphones, high-end computers, and televisions. SCARA robots deployed in this industry are specifically designed and programmed to handle delicate components such as display screens, connectors, and printed circuit boards (PCBs). Given the small and intricate nature of parts like wafers, precise handling, locating, placing, and assembling of components is essential. SCARA robots provide the required precision and accuracy for such tasks, making them well-suited for the electrical & electronics industry. The increasing demand for SCARA robots in handling operations within the electrical & electronics sector is expected to propel the market's growth in this industry.

Market in APAC to dominate SCARA robot market during forecast period
During the period of 2019 to 2024, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to maintain its leading position in the SCARA robot market. APAC has emerged as a prominent hub for significant investments and business expansion opportunities, primarily driven by the rapid adoption of industrial automation. This trend is attributed to the increasing labor costs and the shrinking working-age population in countries like China and Japan. China is anticipated to hold the largest market share in the SCARA robot market throughout the forecast period. Meanwhile, India is expected to exhibit the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the same period, indicating strong market growth in the country.

Key Market Players
Major companies in the SCARA robot market are Seiko Epson (Japan), Yamaha Motor (Japan), YASKAWA (Japan), Denso (Japan), Stäubli (Switzerland), Mitsubishi Electric (Japan), Kawasaki Heavy Industries (Japan), ABB (Switzerland), Toshiba Machine (Japan), Comau (Italy), Nachi-Fujikoshi (Japan), KUKA (Germany), FANUC (Japan), Omron Adept (US), Durr (Germany), Hiwin Technologies (Taiwan), Janome (Japan), Hirata (Japan), Delta Electronics (Taiwan), Fisnar (US), Gridbots (India), Japan Unix (Japan), and Innovative Robotics (US). Apart from these, ADTECH (China) and GOOGOLTECH (Hong Kong) are a few emerging companies in the market.

YASKAWA, a company with over a century of experience in industrial robots, has traditionally been involved in the automotive market. However, recognizing the importance of diversification, they have expanded their presence in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and biomedicine. This strategic move allows them to reduce their reliance on a single market and mitigate potential losses resulting from market risks. To support their operations, YASKAWA has established robotic production plants in Japan, China, and Slovenia. Localized production facilities not only enable cost reductions for the company but also benefit their clients. The Robotics division, responsible for providing SCARA robots, has experienced a significant 8.57% revenue increase in the FY2018 compared to 2017, largely due to their presence in these countries. Recognizing the growing demand for SCARA robots in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, YASKAWA may consider expanding their capital expenditure by incorporating advanced machinery into their facilities to enhance production capacity.
