Global Robotic Process Automation for Smartphone Manufacturing Market Size, by Robot Type
Source: MRFR Analysis
Based on the robot type, the market has been classified as cartesian, SCARA, articulated, delta, 6-axis robot, redundant, dual-arm, and parallel. The 6-axis robots segment accounted for the largest market share in 2017, with a market value of USD 168.7 million; it is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The SCARA segment was the second-highest valued segment during the forecast period. A cartesian robot or cartesian coordinate robot is a 3-axis robot which performs the linear motion along any of the axis which is marked perpendicular to each other. The SCARA, also termed as selective compliance assembly robot arm is based on a 4-axis design whose z-axis is kept fixed and can move in the XY axis allowing the benefit to perform the curved motion. An articulated robot is a rotational joint robot able to perform the circular motion. It has a one fixed leg and many joints which are individually powered by the electric motors. A delta robot is a type of parallel robot which has one base connected with the 3-axis with universal joints. The 6-axis robots have six axes such as a base, allowing the robot to move from left to right, allowing forward and backward motion, enabling the vertical motion, wrist roll (rotating the upper arm in a circular motion), pitch and yaw motion, twisting motion.
The changing consumer market has built a high need for deployment of technically advanced automation process in the manufacturing and production process of an industry. Flexible production system with high-end IT-enabled process provides fast and safe production process which is efficient, flexible, reliable, and cost-effective solution.

In June 2018, ABB launched a commercial modular enabled process automation solution. This was the first solution with the combination of orchestration layer and module layer integrated with the technology of module type packages (MTPs). This new automation solution provides module automation with less downtime and seamless integration with existing systems and is ideal for pharmaceutical plants, biotech manufacturers, chemical factories, and the food & beverage industry.
In June 2018, ABB, along with Kawasaki Heavy Industries, a Japanese motorcycle manufacturer, introduced the world’s first common collaborative robot operating interface. This interface includes a simplified human-robot interface with navigation and icons. The goal of the collaborative robot operating interface is to develop safety standards for worker safety.
In April 2018, Fanuc collaborated with Preferred Networks, Inc., to develop new artificial intelligence (AI) functions which apply machine learning or deep learning to its FA, robot, and Robomachine products. Fanuc has integrated AI and developed AI servo tuning functions for FA, AI Bin Picking Robot, and AI thermal displacement compensation for Robomachine. Each product was equipped with AI utilizing machine learning and deep learning.
