Used and Refurbished Robots Market Size Worth US$ 3,618.9 Million by 2028 | CAGR: 11.1%

According to the study undertaken by Astute Analytica the global used and refurbished robot market was valued at US$ 1,737.2 Million in 2021 and is forecasted to reach US$ 3,618.9 Million by 2028. The market is expected to register a CAGR of 11.1% during the forecast period 2022-2028. In terms of volume, the market is registering a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period. 

A refurbished robot, much like a used car is a machine with a past however, when properly refurbished, a robot's life is extended to a comparable lifespan of a new robot. It can then be re-integrated into the manufacturing world wherein it performs the same or different task as before. Automation being a competitive factor is essential not only in large industries but also increasingly important for the small and medium-sized enterprises around the world, requiring low-cost robots. Used robots are typically disassembled, inspected and tested for any mechanical or electrical components that need to be replaced and then reassembled to their previous state. These robots are subjected to component replacement and specification testing.

Factors such as growth in industrial automation and price benefits over new industrial robots drives the growth in the global used and refurbished robot market. Advanced systems in robotics are primarily deployed for the transformation of industrial operations as such robots possess superior integrability, perception, adaptability as well as mobility. Also, such improvements enable faster commissioning, setup, reconfiguration and are also responsible for more stable and efficient operations. Moreover, regardless of whether the industry is a small or large manufacturer, the refurbished robots offer significant benefits and one of them is cost benefits over new industrial robots. Also, apart from the benefits of cost savings, used and refurbished robots also offer quicker return on investment. Therefore, such cost savings offered by the used and refurbished robots is expected to increase its demand and adoption which is likely to promote the market growth during the forecast period. However, the higher cost of maintenance as compared to traditional new robots are expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, the adoption of collaborative robots and emergence of artificial intelligence enabled robots increase the demand and adoption of used and refurbished artificial intelligence enabled robots and thus is expected to have a positive impact on the market growth during the forecast period.
