Market Synopsis


The Global Robotic End-Effector Market is expected to grow from USD 2,288.88 Million in 2018 to USD 4,827.54 Million by 2025, at a CAGR of 16.10%, during the forecast period.


Robotic end-effector are devices that are installed at the end of a robotic arm. These devices are actuated electrically, hydraulically, mechanically or pneumatically, and are available in various structures depending on the task to be performed. The growing demand for modular soft gripper, increasing adoption of collaborative robots, and rise in additive manufacturing are the key drivers for the market. However, interoperability issues such as difficulty in the integration of different robotic frameworks and high deployment cost of end-effector limit their wide adoption.


The Global Robotic End-Effector Market has been segmented based on Type, Application, Industry and Region.


By type, the market has been segmented into grippers, tool changers, clamps, welding guns, suction cups, and others. The gripper segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. However, the welding segment is expected to register the highest CAGR owing to the growing demand for welding robots in the automotive industry.


By application, the market has been segmented into material handling, assembling, welding, dispensing, cutting & soldering, and others. The assembling segment is expected to account for the largest market share. Furthermore, the introduction of six-axis robots with greater flexibility of movements will further propel the market during the forecast period. The material handling segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the rise in automation of unsafe, repetitive, and tedious processes such as pelletizing, packing, picking, and unloading.


By industry, the market has been segmented into electrical and electronics, machinery, automotive, food & beverages, e-commerce, precision engineering and optics, and others. The electrical and electronics segment is projected to hold the largest market share. However, the food & beverages segment is expected to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to the rise in automation of various processes in this industry.
