The electronics and semiconductor industry robot market is in growth mode.

The latest forecasts suggest that the market will have grown at a compound annual growth rate of just under 8% between 2017 and 2021. 

The robots which feature heavily in the reports, which reflect those which are being used throughout the industry, are the SCARA, Delta, cartesian and articulated variants. 

There are many drivers behind the market growth, not least that the global consumer has an ever increasing and voracious appetite for sophisticated electronic products. This is what the industry has to serve, and innovation and productivity levels have to be constantly maintained and boosted. 

Whatever happens post Covid-19, it is expected that this demand for electronic goods will continue to grow, as the global economy grows, levels of disposable income also grow and product demand is yet more stimulated. 

To cope with this demand, the industry is having to boost their manufacturing abilities, which means they have to look towards robotics and automation, as a way of boosting capability and production levels. Thus the industry is focussed on the quality of the product and the maximum optimization of the operational cost, which in short means that industrial robots are the only answer.

Robots will play a large role within the electronics and semiconductor industry robot market.
