“Spot welding is the most popular type of robotic welding, generating over 48% of the overall market revenue. The global spot welding robots market is expected to exhibit significant growth during the forecast period due to their large-scale use in automotive manufacturing industries globally,” says Bharath Kanniappan, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for robotics research.

Spot welding is used in the automotive industries to join sheet metal frames quickly and efficiently. The advantages offered by spot robotic welding include improvement in product quality, superior safety to the operator, repeatability of results, reduction in labor cost, and better control, and improved floor space savings.

Arc welding robots

Arc welding robots are mainly used in the automotive, heavy machinery, and metal industries, where it finds a wide range of applications. Arc welding equipment are used to heat metal at joints and helping the metal to melt and intermix. The technology improves weld consistency, reduces cycle time, and enhances the efficiency of the output. This market segment is forecast to witness stable growth over the forecast period, to reach a value of USD 3.64 billion by 2021.

Laser welding robots

“Laser robotic welding is projected to grow swiftly, at a CAGR of close to 9% over the forecast period. The superior cavity-free welds, which results in enhanced microstructure of the welded components is driving its increasing popularity,” says Bharath.

Laser welding machines are finding rising applications in the automotive, electrical, and electronics industries. Laser welding is a non-contact process requiring minimum thermal distortion, which results in a shorter loading and unloading time, and lowers fixture costs. These factors are responsible for its quick growth rates, resulting in increased revenue for the market.
