What are the Opportunities for Painting Robots Suppliers?

ASEAN countries are emerging as hotspots for robotics and automation. Increasing number of industrial clusters, green infrastructure, digital investments, talent reskilling, and high-value food industries will not only speed up the region's economic recovery, but will build the groundwork for exponential growth in the painting robots market.

Furthermore, the rapid expansion of the automobile, aerospace, consumer durables, and electronics industries has compelled these countries to adopt modern technologies.

Automation systems are becoming more adaptive and intelligent, changing their behavior on their own to boost productivity or lower unit costs. Thanks to advancements in artificial intelligence and sensor technology, automated painting robots will be able to deal with substantially more task-to-task unpredictability.

In applications where uniform painting, quality of surface finish, enhanced productivity and shorter output is desired, automated painting systems are finding plentiful opportunities.

What is the Potential for Painting Robots Sales in Construction Industry?

The construction industry, which is notorious for being unorganized and labor-intensive, is no exception. Robots are used for a variety of tasks, including designing the construction site, laying bricks, and completing other tasks as needed.

Large modern buildings and structures, on the other hand, are planned by humans which can be hazardous to health owing to lead and VOC emissions by synthetic paints.

Painting robots have eradicated this issue aiding non-human intervention ensuring compliance to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards and added maneuverability to work at high altitudes and gain benefits such as faster drawing processes, reduced work capacity, shorter lead times, and lower building costs, all of which improve quality, working conditions, and safety.

These features have made painting robot application highly sought-after in the construction industry.

Will Sales of Painting Robots Gain Traction in Aerospace Sector?

More complicated manipulators with a lot of mechanical axes are used in the aerospace sector to paint very large components such as wings, fuselages, stabilizers, or entire aircrafts.

Vision systems and software can also be used to automate the programming of aircraft component components, allowing for the painting of up to 90% of the surfaces of a variety of parts.

The majority of aerospace painting is done with air atomized or high volume low pressure electrostatic guns. Boeing was an early adopter of robots for painting aircraft in the aerospace industry.

Which is the Leading Painting Robots Market?

With an absolute dollar opportunity of around US$ 983 Mn, Europe is expected to be the most lucrative market for painting robots suppliers.
