July 28, 2023 | Electronics and Semiconductors

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Japan Articulated Robot Market Report by Payload (Upto 16 Kg, 16 to 60 Kg, 60 to 225 Kg, More Than 225 Kg), Function (Handling, Welding, Dispensing, Assembling, and Others), Type (4-Axis or Less, 5-Axis, 6-Axis or More), Component (Controller, Arm, End Effector, Drive, Sensor, and Others), End-Use Industry (Automotive, Electrical and Electronics, Chemicals, Rubber and Plastics, Metal and Machinery, Food and Beverages, Precision Engineering and Optics, Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the Japan articulated robot market size reached US$ 1,368.4 Million in 2023. An articulated robot is an industrial robot that consists of multiple interconnected segments and links. It is designed to mimic the movement and flexibility of a human arm, enabling them to perform a wide range of complex tasks in industrial settings. It includes a series of rotary joints that provide rotational motion and allow the robot to move its arm and end rotator. It possesses the ability to navigate and operate in a three-dimensional (3D) workspace. It offers versatility, handles materials, assembles components, performs welding or painting operations, and interacts with humans in collaborative robot setups. It executes tasks with precision and repeatability, which ensures consistent quality and productivity in manufacturing processes. Moreover, on account of its speed and efficiency, the articulated robot is widely used in Japan for high-volume production lines and applications that require rapid cycle times.

Japan Articulated Robot Market Trends:

There is a growing demand for automation and robotics in various industries, which represents one of the key factors catalyzing the demand for articulated robots in Japan. Additionally, Japanese companies are increasingly adopting articulated robots to enhance productivity, efficiency, and precision in their manufacturing processes. Apart from this, advancements in technology and innovation are fueling the growth of the market. Furthermore, continuous research and development (R&D) activities are leading to the introduction of more advanced and sophisticated robots with enhanced capabilities. These robots are equipped with cutting-edge features, such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and vision systems, which allows them to perform complex tasks with greater accuracy and efficiency. Furthermore, the country is facing a labor shortage due to an aging population, which is resulting in an increased focus on automation and robotics as a means to overcome this challenge. Companies are turning to articulated robots to replace repetitive and labor-intensive tasks and improve productivity while reducing labor costs. This trend is particularly prominent in industries, such as automotive manufacturing, electronics, and food processing. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 3,061.6 Million by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 9.08% during 2024-2032.
