Global Robotics in Shipbuilding Market is valued at approximately USD 1.26 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 4.9% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Robotics in shipbuilding refers to the application of robotic systems and automation technologies in the construction and assembly of ships. It involves the use of advanced robotic tools, machinery, and computer-controlled systems to streamline and optimize various shipbuilding processes. The integration of robotics in shipbuilding brings numerous benefits, including increased productivity, improved precision, enhanced worker safety, reduced construction time, and better overall quality of the vessels. It enables shipyards to optimize operations, streamline workflows, and meet the growing demands of the maritime industry. The Robotics in the Shipbuilding market is expanding because of factors such as increased usage of robotics to plug labor gap in the shipbuilding industry and increasing shipbuilding demand.
The shipbuilding industry has historically relied on specialized workers for tasks including cutting, welding, and painting. Therefore, shipbuilders are embracing robot technology to save time and money. Additionally, robot technology is remarkably efficient and is demonstrating its ability to eliminate the labour shortage in the shipbuilding industry. For instance, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) developed an innovative strategy in January 2023 to address the persistent manpower and talent shortages in the shipbuilding industry. The shipyard said that it has started implementing a collaborative robot-based automatic welding technology. In addition, the use of automation to streamline processes and the rise in demand for collaborative robotics and rising technological advancement in robotics technology is further creating lucrative opportunities for market growth. However, high initial investment and maintenance cost stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.
The key regions considered for the Global Robotics in Shipbuilding Market study includes Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the market in 2022 owing to factors such as an increase in shipbuilding activities in the region, rising investment in the adoption of automation technologies, and rising research and development projects in the region. Whereas, Europe is projected to grow significantly owing to factors such as the rising adoption of robotics technology in the industry, the rising development of new technologies in the region.
