A robotic paint booth is an automated device that performs various painting operations, such as priming, coating, and finishing. It is also used to spray water, solvent, and powder materials. This product can effectively cover curves, complex parts, shapes, and recesses of all sizes. It is largely utilized in automotive applications. But it is also used in non-automotive applications, such as the aerospace, defense, and military sectors. These systems are used in purpose-built environments for the safe and effective application of booths and paint robots. They are a part of paint automation and equipped with explosion-proof robotic arms to ensure efficient and safe spraying of coatings, while minimizing harm to the end users.

There is a rising demand for robotic paint booths from automotive and non-automotive sectors due to benefits associated with them, such as reduced labor cost & time of production, increased product quality, higher productivity, protection of people's health, and a safety-driven system. These factors are expected to fuel the market growth. The steady expansion of the automotive industry and related sectors will also drive the market growth. For instance, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian passenger car market is anticipated to record a CAGR of 9% from 2022 to 2027. These factors will enhance the sales of robotic paint booths.


Supply Chain Disruptions and Halted Manufacturing Activities During COVID-19 Restricted Market Growth

The automotive, aerospace, and defense sectors across the globe suffered more during the COVID-19 pandemic owing to disruptions in their supply chains, leading to delays in the manufacturing and delivery of equipment and components for spray booths. Many manufacturers faced challenges in obtaining the necessary parts and materials. During this period, many industries, including automotive and aerospace, which are significant users of spray booths, experienced a decline in their production activities. Reduced manufacturing output meant less demand for new paint booths. The COVID-19 outbreak also highlighted the importance of health and safety in manufacturing environments. The automotive industry is one of the most significant consumers of robotic paint booths.

Moreover, the pandemic led to a significant slowdown in automobile production as manufacturers temporarily closed their manufacturing plants or reduced their production capacity due to lockdowns and decreased consumer demand. This reduction in demand for new vehicles had a direct impact on the sales of robotic paint booths.  For instance, according to a statement by the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), the net sales of the automotive sector dropped by 37.9% in 2020 as compared to 2019. Also, major manufacturers witnessed a drop in their net sales due to supply chain bottlenecks. For instance, the net sales of ABB Ltd. dropped by 6.6% in 2020 as compared to 2019. However, some major players registered a significant rise in their net sales during the same period. For instance, Yaskawa Electric Corporation registered growth in its net sales by 18.9% in 2020 as compared to the previous year 2019.

However, the product demand has rebounded post-pandemic owing to steady growth in the automotive and healthcare sectors, and technological advancements in these products. These factors might boost the global market growth during the forecast period.
