New ARC Research Shows Growth for Collaborative Robots in the Post Pandemic Era

ARC’s new research into Collaborative Robots, otherwise known as Cobots, provides insights on the cobots market in the post pandemic era. The market for cobots will continue to experience double digit growth over the next five years. Cobots are one of the latest technologies that revolutionize the automation industry. Unlike their industrial robot counterparts, cobots are designed to operate in proximity with human operators while addressing productivity challenges such as throughput, quality, efficiency, and accuracy. The elimination of the installation of safety safeguards in the factory space is a key advantage for using a cobot solution, as manufacturing flexibility, smaller factory footprint, and quicker redeployment can be achieved to adapt to the market and supply chain uncertainties.

"The Industrial Revolution has influenced the way robotics can evolve. From a mechanized equipment designed solely for productivity and efficiency, Industrial IoT, and the digital transformation revolution gave rise to more intelligent robots with a higher integration of sensors and computer vision technology. Better and different types of sensors also allow the enhancement of safety features, increasing the feasibility of a human-robot coworking relationship, which has proven to be reliable in addressing the recent global challenges. New enabling technologies such as AI and digital twins can influence the way in which humans interact with cobots in the future," according to Fox Chen, Market Analyst and key author of ARC's Collaborative Robots Market Research.
