The main hindrance for automotive robotics market is its high capital investments and the compulsion of obtaining skilled labor for operating robotic machines. Another restraint hindering the growth of this market is fewer guarantees on the return on investment. There is a lack of skilled labor specialized and talented in the various areas for handling robotic functions such as embedded, electrical, mechanical, and software activities.

The global automotive robotic market by systems is segmented into SCARA, articulated, Cartesian, software, and services. All the different types of robots have a unique application in the manufacturing of automobiles. Articulated robots have a dominant market share and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Increasing use of articulated robots in material handling, packaging, machine loading, parts cleaning, pick & place, cutting, polishing, grinding, gluing, sealing, welding, palletizing, press transfer, handling of metal casting, and deburring is anticipated to propel market demand.

SCARA robots are mainly used for screw tightening, finished product inspection, assembly cells, etc. in the automobile industry.  Based on the function the automotive robotics market consists of welding, assembling, disassembling, and painting. The robots are designed to handle the various functions which save time and improves manufacturing efficiency rate. 

Applications of the automotive robotics market are robotic painting, welding, assembling, cutting and dispensing. Automotive Robotics are also used in material handling applications such as automated guided vehicles (AGV). The unique specialty of automotive robots is their vision of finding minute differences in the manufacturing and handling activities.

Robot-robot collaboration increases efficiency and quality of the product, which majorly happens in handling robots and welding robots. The robotic hand is used in the final stage of work for assembling parts with accuracy.

Asia Pacific is the leading automotive robotic market due to its high customer base for automobiles and enhanced technology development. Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a high CAGR    as car manufacturing companies are shifting their manufacturing bases in this region due to their low production cost. High technological adaptation and lack of skilled labor are also some of the major factors contributing to the growth of this region. The increase in demand for automobiles and growing investments is anticipated to contribute to the growth in this region.
