Many governments and local sectors, across the U.S., and China are planning to invest in the manufacturing and automotive industry. Also, growth in the manufacturing sector, electronics sector, and electrical sector enhances the demand to increase automation in the manufacturing facilities to improve the production efficiency of the companies present in the market. Such a factor is anticipated to increase the demand for installing new robots in various industry verticals such as pharmaceuticals, automotive, and electronics sectors, which enhance the growth of the market share. For instance, according to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), in 2021, around 79 thousand units of industrial robots were being installed in the U.S. increased by 14% in 2021, as compared to 2020. These investments in the industrial sectors, which advancing automation in the robotics sectors, fuels the North America industrial robots market growth.


Increasing Demand for Scara Robots From End User Industries to Fuel the Market Growth

Growth in the electrical electronics industry, automotive, food & beverages, and material handling industries across the U.S., and Canada creates the demand for SCARA robots for applications such as material handling, assembling, cutting & processing, welding, and painting. For instance, in 2021, around 3% of the total GDP was contributed by the automotive sector in the U.S. Such as contribution helps companies to fuel the robotics industry. In addition, according to our analysis, the material handling segment dominates the market with a CAGR of 12.5%, during the forecast period owing to the increasing adopting of collaborative robots for pick and place, and material handling applications. Such factors enhance the size of North America industrial robots market share.


High Installation Cost for Small and Medium Enterprises to Restrain the Market Growth

Articulated robots, gantry robots, and Cartesian robots are some of these robots adopted by several enterprises such as small-scale, medium, and large enterprises. In average, around USD 50,000 to USD 80,000 is required for installing these types of robots to boost the productivity of companies. These types of robots are able to perform various applications such as painting, material handling, assembling, and welding & soldering applications. These huge labor costs are not bearable for small as well as medium sizes businesses. Such factors are the restraints for the growth of the market.
