Latest building materials robot news
The global building materials robotics market is in growth mode, although the figures in many of the latest forecasts were put together before the start of the Covid-19 crisis, so much will depend how this pans out over the coming months.
One forecast, put forward by Global Info Research (GIR) predicts that the market will be worth US$350m in 2023, up from US$200m in 2017. This equates to a compound annual growth rate of just over 10%.
In their report, GIR highlights the type of robots operating in the industry, including remote controlled demolition robots, construction 3D printing robots, bricklaying robots and remote control rescue robots etc.
Two of the countries which will be pushing the growth of robots in the building materials industry are Japan and China. The latter is likely to compete with Europe and North America, who are currently dominating the building materials industry robots market.
The big players in this market are:
Giant Hydraulic Tech
Beijing Borui Intelligent Control
building materials Robotic
Shimizu building materials
By type, the report broke down the type of robots into two categories, demolition robots and building robots, working in a number of key applications, including the metallurgical, building materials and cement, and mining industries.
