By Business Wire News


Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recentglobal cleanroom robots market report for 2016-2020. These vendors are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The competition between the vendors in the global cleanroom robots market is intense in terms of product features, price, customized solutions, and services offered. The growing adoption of cleanroom robots provides opportunities to smaller players to thrive in the market, providing opportunities to develop new technologies and increased innovations.

“However, industries, such as semiconductors, electrical and electronics, pharmaceutical, F&B and aerospace, prefer established vendors due to their high brand value, history, and expertise in chain drive technology. In addition, high R&D investments by established vendors have led to rapid technology development, resulting in the development of modern industrial robots, such as cleanroom robots used in the cleanrooms of industries to avoid contamination,” says Bharat Kanniappan, a lead robotics analyst from Technavio.
