Assembly Automation Systems Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment; 2018 - 2028

Market Overview

Assembly Automation Systems Market: Market Overview:

Competition in the manufacturing sector is driving need for meeting customer requirements, improving agile responses, and enhancing flexible manufacturing capability which are in-turn acting as triggers for increasing demand for assembly automation systems. The growing demand for cost minimization, productivity, and optimum allocation of resources have contributed towards continuous research for analysis and modeling of manufacturing systems. Furthermore, assembly operations in the automated systems play an important role in manufacturing through performing sequence of operations to combine multiple components into a single entity. Assembly automation system refers to the use of automated and mechanized devices which are designed to perform a fixed sequence of assembly steps in an assembly line or cell. Transfer line or transfer machine term is used to describe the cases where machining operations such as milling, drilling, and similar rotating cutter processes perform at particular workstations. Although, assembly automation systems are considered expensive to implement and create, the capital investment for them is not as high as transfer lines due to assembly automation system’s relatively smaller size and therefore cost reduction in the system.

Moreover, the assembly systems are classified according to the physical arrangement either in-line machine – single station assembly, carousel assembly system, or dial type assembly machine. Multiple operations, long product life, stable product design, and high product demand, are the major conditions determining the use of automated production lines.

Other benefits of assembly process from automation systems are labor savings, handling multiple tasks to meet manufacturing requirements, consistency of output & throughput, greater profitability through higher production rate, and better reliability.

Increasing demand for meeting customer’s requirement and higher production rate may augment the growth of the market

The competitive working environment across automotive, 3C industry, among others has now forced the companies to automate their assembly processes for production enhancement. Furthermore, new technical improvements along with technical solutions may bring company to hold significant position in the market enabling them to set the quality standards and price levels in the market. The work of the designers or the manufacturing company may help in product success through its performance, costs, and reliability. Therefore, the requirement of flexible and agile manufacturing capability may bring competitive advantage for the manufacturing companies to minimize lead times and elaborating manufacturing processes.
