SCARA Robots Market Overview and Introduction

The SCARA acronym stands for Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm or Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm. The main feature of SCARA robots is to allow the arm to extend and retract into confined areas and make it pick & place objects from one location to another. These robots can move along their x and y axes but are locked along their z-axis. The SCARA robots are mainly used in assembly operation inspection and measurements, transfer of components among others. SCARA robot is used for applications with a smaller field of operation and where floor space is limited, as these robots have compact layout & it thus makes them easier to re-allocate for remote applications.

The global SCARA robots market is driven by rising adoption of SCARA robots in the automotive industry. Moreover, technological advancements, the growing need to reduce errors in production processes, as well as high accuracy and speed of production processes, are anticipated to boost the market growth during the forecast period. However, the high cost of such robots is likely to restrain market growth to a certain extent.

The global SCARA robots market can be segmented into payload capacity, application, end-use industry, and region.

SCARA Robots Market By Payload Capacity

Based on payload capacity, the SCARA robots market can be segmented into: up to 5.00 kg, 5.01–15.00 kg, and more than 15.00 kg. Robots having a payload capacity of up to 5.00 kg are expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. The phenomenal growth of this market segment can be attributed to the widespread applications of SCARA robots in operations, which require high accuracy and several cycles.

SCARA Robots Market By Application

Based on application, the market can be segmented into handling, assembling & disassembling, welding & soldering, and processing & dispensing. In terms of market share, the handling applications segment held the largest market share in 2019 owing to factors such as the rising demand for SCARA robots performing operations such as pick & place, especially in automotive as well as food & beverage industries, among others. 

SCARA Robots Market By End Use Industry

Based on end-use industry, the market can be segmented into electrical & electronics, automotive, plastics, rubbers & chemicals, metals & machinery, pharmaceuticals & cosmetics, precision engineering & optics, and food & beverages. The electrical & electronics industry is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to factors such as the increasing demand for electronic devices (television, smartphones, laptops, and others), which generates a high demand for SCARA robots that can assemble components and place them precisely.

SCARA Robots Market By Region

The global SCARA robots market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of World (ROW). Asia-Pacific dominated the SCARA robots market with growth centered in China, Japan, and India. The growth in these regions can be attributed to factors such as rising manual labor costs, further leading to a high preference for SCARA robots in the region.
