Global Defense Robotics Market to Reach US$7.5 Billion by 2018, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.
GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Defense Robotics markets. The global market for Defense Robotics is forecast to reach US$7.5 billion by the year 2018, propelled by rapid technological developments and imminent benefits on the warfront. Increased Government spending, technological maturity, and enhanced cost-benefit ratio of the unmanned systems are the major growth drivers for this vibrant sector. In the future, robots will increasingly replace humans on combat ground in all branches of the military, significantly lowering casualties and altering field strategies.

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
