Ongoing technological advancements in industries, such as automotive, healthcare, and electronics, are compelling manufacturers to automate solutions and increase productivity in production lines, driving the assembly machine market growth. The equipment is being widely used in assembling small & intricate components that require precision and care throughout the manufacturing process. The rising demand to improve the product quality by eliminating errors and reducing variability in several industrial applications will drive the industry growth over the coming years. Semi-automatic & fully automatic machines are enabling businesses to handle multiple tasks to meet specific requirements. The adoption of automated assembly systems will provide a safer work environment to workers and reduce the occurrence of failures.

The growing adoption of assembly units to develop medical devices, such as syringes, catheters, inhalers, and disposables, will drive the market demand. The pharmaceutical industry is using plastics over metal, aluminum, and bronze to maximize equipment efficiency. Plastics offer a wide range of properties such as low friction, lightweight, self-lubricating, chemical & corrosion resistance, better wear properties, noise abatement, and high strength, reducing the downtime and increasing the production efficiency. Pharmaceutical industries are implementing automated machinery to process, assemble, test, inspect, and package these parts. Several manufacturers are integrating advanced technology into machinery to offer reliable, precise, and durable operations. For instance, Orientech Automation integrated FANUC robots and products for high-speed assembly of syringes, vials or test tubes for pharmaceutical and medical sectors.

In 2018, semi-automatic machines accounted for over 55% of the assembly machine market share and are being adopted by businesses to improve the quality and labor productivity as manual assembly machines are time-consuming. They are operated partly automatically and partly manually for loading & unloading the entire system in the manufacturing process. Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are highly implementing these machines to cut their operational costs, enhancing productivity in manufacturing processes. Moreover, these machines are integrated with robots, palletized conveyor lines & automated feeders, and require less human interaction for loading & unloading of parts in each step of the assembly process. Businesses having less production and high-quality manufacturing prefer these machines to improve the production process while retaining the adaptability of operator’s input.

The food & beverage sector is witnessing growing usage of automated machinery. Changing customer preferences on consumable products, rising consumer income, the adoption of western culture in several countries, and transformation of the retail trade sector are resulting in higher consumption of food & beverage products. Manufacturers are adopting the equipment for the manufacturing of sports drink dispensing closures, syrup delivery valves, and plastic bottles. These machines are helping businesses to speed up the production process. Moreover, suppliers are offering machines for the assembly of specific components. For instance, RNA Automation Limited is providing cap assembly machines to efficiently feed, orient, and assemble the push-pull cap. These machines can be connected to other machines in production lines, enabling quick & automatic feeding, filling, assembly, capping, and discharging of finished products, increasing the productivity.

Increasing government initiatives and support to improve economic conditions in countries, such as Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina, will drive the adoption of automated solutions in the Latin American market. According to the World Bank’s Enterprise Surveys, 31.6% of companies have inadequately trained workers. Lack of skilled workers is forcing industries to invest in technologies, such as Industry 4.0. The rise in government and organization initiatives for improving the manufacturing sector will provide lucrative growth benefits to the assembly machine market. For instance, organizations under Brazil's National Confederation of Industry (CNI), announced their plan to invest in automation for the manufacturing of goods. The rise in the manufacturing sector coupled with the growing need for efficiency and quality in manufacturing processes continues to drive the Latin American market growth. Food, beverages, healthcare, and pharmaceutical industries are major deployers of machinery in the Latin American region. Several consumers are importing their machinery from countries including the U.S., Germany, and Italy.
