Details and scope of Robotics Industry in IndiaBy Robolab Technologies In Robotics
The purpose of this article is to provide a basic information to the students from engineering colleges/technical institutions or the beginners who are interested to pursue their career in Robotic Industry.
Robotics defines as “technology dealing with the design, construction, and operation of robots”.
Robotics encompasses such diverse areas of technology as mechanical, electrical, and electronic systems; computer hardware; and computer software.
The Robot Institute of America defines a robot as a programmable, multifunctional manipulator designed to move material, parts, tools, or specialized devices, through variable programmed motions, for the performance of a variety of tasks.
History of Robotics
1922: Rossum’s Universal Robots
1954: First programmable robot
1978: First PUMA robot
1983: Started teaching in Robotics
Advantages of Robots
Increase Productivity, Safety, Efficiency, Quality, and Consistency of products.
Work in Hazardous environments and have capabilities beyond that of humans.
Scope of Robotic Industry in India
Industry is moving towards automation, increase in production and increase in accuracy of the products. All the developed and developing countries have started using Robots for the Automation and high volume of production of similar products.
India accounts for slightly less than 1.5% of global purchases of Industrial robots. The vast majority are used in India’s automotive industry as JV’s match global manufacturing processes
Global Scenario of Robotic Industry
RIA Robots Industry Association USA estimates that some 213,000 robots are now at use inUnited States factories, placing the US second only to Japan in robot use. “Many observers believe that only about 10% of the US companies that could benefit from robots have installed any so far,”
India is having big potential for the expansion of the robotics Industry due to increasing labour cost, more and more automation, and increase in production demand and increasing international competition for producing more accurate products.
The Following Industry globally using Robots
- Electrical and Elctronics
- Motor vehicles
- Automotive Industry
- Chemical Rubber and Plastic
- Rubber Parts
- Industrial Machinery
- Consumer Domestic Appliances
- Ceremic and Glass
- Medical Equipment
Use of Industrial Robots in selected countries as per the number of Robots used
- United Kingdom
2011: The most successful year for industrial robots since 1961
Despite the weakening global economic situation a further robot sales increase of about 9% to about 181,000 units is likely. The sales increase will mainly be driven by the automotive industry and the electronics industry
Robot supply to the Americas will increase by 17% and to Asia/Australia by 12% while robot sales to Europe will only slightly increase by 2%
Between 2013 and 2015 worldwide robot sales will increase by about 5% on average per year:
As per the estimation up to 2015 Globally there will be more than 800000 robots in use in various countries.
