Assembly Machines Market size is set to exceed USD 9 billion by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The rise in the demand for automated manufacturing processes to improve quality by eliminating errors and reducing variability is a major factor driving the assembly machines market growth. These machines substitute human labors for carrying out hazardous and repetitive tasks performed in the manufacturing process. The rising trend of smart factory and Industry 4.0 is encouraging manufacturers to invest in new production tools & technologies. Manufacturers across industries such as automotive, pharmaceutical, electronics, and cosmetics are implementing automated machinery to increase their sales and production of goods. Automated assembly enhances optimization and reliability, providing flexibility and rapid process monitoring. Machines simplify the task of sorting, filling, sealing, and labeling, allowing the company to increase its productivity.
Automated assembly equipment is being manufactured with different capabilities and functions. In the healthcare industry, medicine, tools, and equipment must be specifically designed to function appropriately. These machines help to enhance processes in health facilities. They can bend, drill, polish needles, barb & form structures, and assemble syringes & catheters. Designing these tools by hand involves labor and is time-consuming, slowing down overall work cycle. With the use of machines, manpower can be significantly reduced, and the production of utensils, tools, and equipment can be increased. The increasing usage of small plastic components by healthcare professionals is encouraging manufacturers to adopt new plastic molding technology to enhance output, improve quality, and reduce production costs. They are implementing new technologies for the assembly of small plastic parts such as filters, inhalers, pumps, syringes, tubes, valves, and other medical products. For instance, in September 2017, SINTECO, a provider of special machines and robotic lines for assembly and testing for medical applications, announced the launch of Medtech machine. The machinery is managed by PLC and SCADA systems. Such factors are driving the assembly machines market demand.
