Rising cost of manual labor: a major market driver

Rising cost of manual labor is one of the major factors driving the global heavy duty robot platform market. With the rise in aging population, the availability of the labor for strenuous applications has minimized, especially in countries such as China and Japan, making it difficult for end-users to perform operations efficiently. The lack of manpower has led to an increased cost of manual operations owing to cost-intensive manpower and manually operated equipment. Also, accidents and human error during critical operations add on to the operational cost. Therefore, to reduce manpower procurement cost and ensure quality, precision, and speed of operations, heavy duty robot platforms are being incorporated.
