Europe Industrial Robotics Market Set to Double by 2030

Growtht Driven by Automation and Smart Technologies

by Pieter Werner

A recent report on the  Europe Industrial Robotics Market indicates a significant growth trajectory for the industrial robotics sector in Europe. This market is projected to increase from USD 4.5 billion in 2022 to USD 9.87 billion by 2030, demonstrating a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.3% over this period.

A key driver of this growth is the increasing emphasis on sustainability and green economy initiatives within the region. Industrial robots are being engineered to be more energy-efficient, featuring advanced power management systems and energy-saving capabilities. These developments are aimed at aiding companies in reducing their carbon footprint and meeting sustainability objectives. Additionally, the robotics industry is focusing on green manufacturing practices to minimize environmental impacts, such as reducing hazardous substances and emissions and utilizing eco-friendly materials.

The report highlights Germany as a leader in this market within the European Union. With approximately 230,000 industrial robots as of 2020, Germany represents a third of Europe’s total robot inventory. Other notable countries in terms of robot adoption include France, with around 44,800 industrial robots, and the UK, with about 23,000. The integration of robots in manufacturing processes is enhancing operational efficiency and production volumes across various industries.

The rise of Industry 4.0, or the digital industrial revolution, is another significant factor contributing to market growth. This revolution is characterized by increased operational flexibility, improved workflow speeds, enhanced product quality, and boosted factory productivity. The adoption of automation solutions in sectors such as automotive, chemicals, food and beverages, mechanical engineering, and electronics is particularly noteworthy.

Government investments in the region are also propelling this market forward. For instance, in July 2021, the UK government announced an investment of approximately USD 59.3 million to advance digital manufacturing technologies. This funding is earmarked for the establishment of research centers, a digital supply chain innovation hub, and individual projects aimed at digitalizing manufacturing supply chains.
