Key Market Trends Fueling Growth

Rental companies, such as Hirebotics, Tokyo Century, and ORIX, have become essential players in the industrial welding robots market. These companies offer end-users a comprehensive solution for robot deployment, including programming, maintenance, and repair. They handle installation expenses and provide rental robots equipped with the latest technologies for various industries. The high initial cost of owning industrial welding robots and the complexity of designing and implementing them make renting an attractive option for businesses. Renting industrial welding robots offers a considerable return on investment and eases the burden of ownership and maintenance. The robots-as-a-service (RaaS) model, a pay-as-you-go or subscription-based service, is gaining popularity. It allows businesses to access robotic process automation by leasing robotic devices and subscribing to a cloud-based service instead of purchasing the equipment outright. This trend is expected to expand the growth of the global industrial welding robots market during the forecast period. Despite the potential impact on the revenues of key vendors due to decreased demand for new industrial welding robots, the benefits of renting and RaaS are compelling for businesses.

The Industrial Welding Robots market is experiencing significant growth due to increasing consumer spending on essential goods and services, including automobiles and consumer goods. Robots are essential in welding various workpieces to weld different parts with high precision, narrow welds, and minimal changes. The latest trends include high welding speed, rework reduction, and high reliability. Laser beam and carbon dioxide welding technologies are popular due to their high power density, low distortion, and improved gap bridging capabilities. Plasma welding technology, including plasma welding torches, vision systems, feeder systems, plasma flow controllers, and other EOAT devices, is gaining traction for high-volume applications. The component segment, including robots, controllers, and other accessories, holds the largest share of the market. The general manufacturing industry and defense industry are the major consumers of welding robots, with resistance spot welding and plasma welding being the most common welding processes. Personnel restrictions and the need for remote welding locations are driving the adoption of collaborative and delta robots.

  • Industrial welding robots offer significant returns on investment for repetitive welding tasks. However, the selection process for automating welding depends on factors such as metal part type and operation repeatability. For applications with small batch sizes and large gaps between parts, robot performance can be affected, increasing welding time. Poorly designed fixtures and variations in metal forming can lead to inconsistent welding by robots. Programming robots for batch manufacturing or repair work requires significant time, which can be mitigated through offline programming. However, the use of teach pendants for programming results in extended operational downtime. Consistent metal design with proper gap tolerances is essential for robotic welding, which can be challenging to obtain. Additionally, welding in confined spaces restricts the use of robots in certain end-user segments. These factors may hinder the growth of the global industrial welding robots market during the forecast period.
  • The industrial welding robots market faces challenges in modern manufacturing due to sensors issues and the need for efficiency and flexibility in robotics solutions. Welding applications, such as those in aerospace, construction, and automotive sectors, require precision and repeatability. Robotic systems, including robotic arms and machine vision technologies, are essential for consistent weld quality. However, economic downturns, strict
    lockdowns, and disrupted supply chains have affected manufacturing facilities and production schedules. Labor costs and raw materials remain significant concerns. To optimize performance, data collection and analysis are crucial for smart manufacturing ecosystems. Laser welding is a major application, with end-use industries including automotive & transportation, metals & machinery, electrical & electronics, and aerospace & defense. Skilled labor shortages persist, highlighting the importance of robotic welding in various sectors. Despite these challenges, the industrial sector continues to demand robotic systems for welding tasks in pipes, metal parts, and structural elements.
