Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global SCARA Robots Market – Market Research 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The global SCARA robots market to grow at a CAGR of 5.60%, in terms of unit shipments, during 2014-2019.

This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global SCARA robot market during the period 2015-2019. To determine the market size, the report considers the unit shipments of SCARA robot globally. The market is highly fragmented with the presence of many global and regional vendors. The report presents a detailed analysis of the major vendors in the market. In addition, the report includes the major drivers that influence the growth of the market. It also outlines the challenges faced by vendors and the market at large, as well as the key emerging trends.

The rising demand for mass production at a single stretch in automotive industry has led to the widespread use of SCARA robots. These machines can pick-and-place, load and unload the automotive components delicately with high levels of accuracy and precision. The increasing installation of miniaturized components in the automotive industry has also led to the adoption of SCARA robots in this sector, aiding its market growth.

According to the report, SCARA robots are small, can operate at a high speed, and require minimum space to operate. They are ideal for applications that need utmost precision and speed, such as handling delicate components. The technology has a uniform control concept across the entire range, and enables fast commissioning and simple maintenance. SCARA robots are constructed to reduce wear and tear and this helps extend maintenance intervals. Concurrently, the brakes save the axes from sagging after the robot is turned off.

Further, the report states that Industries in America and EMEA are adopting cartesian and articulated robots for operations, which cannot be completed using SCARA robots. This limited usage of SCARA applications creates fewer end-users in these regions.

The following are the major end-users of SCARA robots:

  • Electrical and electronics industry
  • Automotive industry
  • Rubber and plastic industry
  • Food and beverages industry
  • Heavy machinery industry
  • Metal industry
  • Others
