By Function Analysis

Spraying and coating segment is projected to account highest share in 2022

Spraying and coating segment is anticipated to grow with fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Spraying allows for the application of a fine mist of paint or coating material over a large area, covering surfaces quickly and evenly. This efficiency reduces painting cycle times, increases production throughput, and enables faster completion of painting tasks. Also, spraying and coating techniques ensure uniform coverage of paint or coating material, resulting in consistent finishes and these techniques are highly adaptable to different surface types and materials. Moreover, spraying and coating techniques can accommodate a wide range of paint and coating materials. This versatility allows painting robots to meet specific industry requirements and achieve desired finishes, textures, and protective coatings. Similarly, these techniques align well with the automation and digitalization trends of Industry 4.0.

By Application Analysis

Atomizer application is leading the global market in 2022

Atomizer application is gaining a huge traction and leading the global market in year of 2022. Atomizers are designed to handle various types of paint and coating materials. The versatility of atomizers allows painting robots to work with a wide range of coating materials, meeting industry requirements and achieving desired finishes. Atomizers provide the flexibility to adjust spray parameters, such as spray pressure, droplet size, and spray angle. These adjustments allow painting robots to optimize paint application based on the specific requirements of the object being painted. Atomizers are designed to be easily integrated into robotic systems, enabling seamless operation and coordination with painting robots.

By End-Use Analysis

Automotive segment held largest share of the global revenue in 2022

Automotive segment is dominating the global market in the fiscal year 2022. Automotive manufacturers produce millions of vehicles each year, requiring efficient and fast painting processes. Painting robots offer the speed, precision, and consistency necessary to meet the production demands of the automotive industry, making them the preferred choice.
