Report Overview

Robots are intelligent devices that are capable of autonomy, sensory perception and
manipulation. A wide range of machine tools and computer applications are used for
the development of robotics technology. Robots are employed for dangerous and
monotonous tasks with the objective of improving the quality and efficiency of
processes. With the growing demand of automation across diverse industries, a
significant increase in the employment of robots is observed in the Asia-Pacific region.
Implementation of robots reduces human errors and allows efficient resource
management. The segment of industrial robots occupies the largest share in the Asia
Pacific robotics market, followed by the segment of mobile robots. The vendors in the
Asia-Pacific robotics technology market develop customized solutions that find major
application across the sectors of healthcare, automotive, defense and security,
agriculture, and domestic works. Mobile robotics is majorly used in defense, security
and aerospace industries. However, with the increasing application areas of robotics,
the market observes a significant increase in demand from the healthcare and
domestic sector. The dominant presence of the automotive industry and low-cost
manufacturing units in the Asia-Pacific region accelerate the adoption of industrial
robotics across the manufacturing industries. The demand of service robotics has also
increased significantly in China and Japan owing to growing count of aging population
in this region. The increasing employment of robots in entertainment, education,
healthcare and cleaning industries, boosts the prospects in the market. The process of
robot development has enhanced significantly due to the technological advancements
in smart phones. However, SMEs are reluctant towards the adoption of robotics as the
initial investment required is high, a factor that limits the market growth. Stringent
safety regulations regarding the operation of service robots also restrict the growth of
this market. With the advent of innovative technologies such as cloud robotics, biomimetics and swarm robotics, the investments in the Asia-Pacific robotics market have
significantly increased, subsequently resulting in numerous growth opportunities.

Robots are employed for automation of processes to produce a large volume of high
quality products. Robots increase the efficiency and production output whilst reducing
wastage and operating costs. Collaborative robots assist humans in manual or
automated tasks. Robots are used in a diverse range of applications, some of which
include tele-surgery, pharmacy, physical and mental therapy, bomb diffusion, mine
detection, rescue operations, space studies, manufacturing of aircrafts, production of
electronics equipment and in domestic chores. The companies have developed small,
compact, energy efficient and low cost robotics systems to offer enhanced solutions
to small and medium sized businesses. The vendors in the market are acquiring and

collaborating with leading companies to enhance their product portfolio. In June 2013,
FANUC Corporation collaborated with Rockwell Automation for the development of
integrated manufacturing solutions. This partnership would enable both the
companies to enhance their offerings in robotics. In November 2013, Honda
introduced a walking assist device that supports body weight and the leg muscles
which render ease in movement. Other leading players in this market include ABB
Group, Komatsu, Ltd., Yaskawa Electric Corporation, Seiko Epson Corporation, Nachi
Fujikoshi Corporation, Panasonic Corporation, Honda Motor Co., Ltd., and Yamaha
