The robotics in shipbuilding market size is set to gain impetus from the increasing need to accomplish various significant tasks, such as blasting, heavy lifting, and welding activities of marine propellers. In May 2020, for instance, Hyundai Heavy Industries declared that it will be the first company that will be using robotics in shipbuilding. It has completed testing a novel robotic system that will be able to shape the 3D curved surface of a vessel automatically. It will be done at the company’s shipyard in Ulsan. Fortune Business Insights™ published this information in an upcoming report, titled, “Robotics in Shipbuilding Market, 2021-2028.” 

Various companies are facing disturbances in production and reduced demand as workers are heading home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has also caused passengers to stop traveling. Customers are either cancelling or postponing the delivery of new aircraft. Since less maintenance is required at present, the demand for spare parts has also declined rapidly. We are providing authentic research reports to help you fight this pandemic.

Drivers & Restraints-

High Demand for Collaborative Robots to Accelerate Growth

The rising demand for smaller robotic systems to weld parts of cargo ships is considered to be a major reason for the robotics in shipbuilding market growth in the near future. Apart from that, the high demand for collaborative robots worldwide would also propel growth. But, the lack of skilled workforce to handle robotics in shipbuilding may hinder growth.

Regional Insights-

Presence of Reputed Manufacturers in South Korea to Help Asia Pacific Lead

Geographically, Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing region in the upcoming years because of the increasing shipbuilding stake of South Korea globally. A report by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) mentions that South Korea and China account for approximately 76% of the global shipbuilding stake. Besides, the presence of prominent manufacturers of robotics in shipbuilding, such as Hyundai Heavy Industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in South Korea would aid growth.

Europe, on the other hand, is likely to register a remarkable growth in the forthcoming years. This is attributable to the surging demand for goliath crane robotic systems and other industrial systems in France and the U.K.
