The collaborative robot industry analysis projects the market to grow at a significant CAGR of 60.85% on the basis of volume during the forecast period from 2019 to 2024.

Europe dominated the global collaborative robot market with a share of 47% in 2019. Europe, including the major countries, such as the U.K., Germany, France, Spain, and Italy, is the most prominent region for the collaborative robot market. In Europe, Germany acquired a major market share in 2019 due to the major deployment of cobots in the automotive sector in the country.

The global collaborative robot market has gained widespread importance with the growing need for improved productivity, speed, and efficiency, a continuous decrease in size of the available workforce, and overcoming the safety concerns for labor working around robots in shared workplaces. However, the lack of comprehensive regulatory and compliance standards for cobots are some of the factors that are restraining the market growth.
