Integration of advanced technology

Artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of things (IoT) boost the productivity and accuracy of robots while improving weld quality and enabling real-time analysis.

 

Rising need for mobility solutions

The rising demand for vehicles is prompting manufacturers to increase their production. Since welding robots can perform welding continuously while providing reliable and durable welds, their demand is rising in the automotive sector.

 

Robotic welding as a preferred choice over manual welding

Robotic welding provides safety against flashes, fumes, sparks, and heat produced from welding, which is hazardous to human health.

 

Increasing investments from logistics and military sectors

Shipbuilders are increasing investments in robotic welding technology to cater to rising demand from the commercial, logistics, and military sectors.

 

Global Robotic Welding Market Trends

The market is being driven by the increasing adoption of Industry 4.0. The initiative calls for the digitisation of the manufacturing sector by the adoption of trends such as data and connectivity, analytics, human-machine interaction, and improvements in robotics. Welding plays a pivotal role in automotive production to join metal car parts, such as the body, chassis, and car panels, among others. This drives the deployment of robotic welding that helps in precise and mass production. Approximately 60 million vehicles are manufactured worldwide annually.

 

Furthermore, by enhancing the energy efficiency of welding robots, manufacturers can help end users perform green manufacturing. Electrical and electronics manufacturing often involves intricate components and connections. Robotic welding ensures precise and consistent welds, critical for maintaining product quality and reliability. These robots can achieve accuracy levels difficult to match with manual welding. The electronics manufacturing sector plays a vital role in the U.S. economy, accounting for 1.6% of GDP.

Spot welding robots are expected to hold significant market share as they are widely adopted by the automotive industry

Spot welding robots dominate the robotic welding market share as they are used to manufacture car parts cost-efficiently, reliably, and quickly. Robots efficiently perform spot welding and add automation to the welding process.

 

Their dexterity helps them reach the workpiece from any orientation, which is crucial to orient the tool to the exact location where the welding needs to be performed. Spot welding using articulated robots finds use in automobile manufacturing to weld components, such as car chassis.

 

Arc welding robots featuring a slimmer profile and internalised cabling result in more efficient and optimised welding. Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) is a common application of robotic arc welding. Robotic GTAW is a precision welding method to weld thin metals and produce detailed and clean welds.
