Speed reducer is an intermediate device that connects the servo motor and the actuator, the reducer uses the pinion on the input shaft to mesh with the gear on the output shaft to output the power generated by the high-speed rotation of the servo motor, thereby, reducing the speed of the industrial robot. Implementation of various government rules and regulations such as ANSI is boosting the industrial robot speed reducer market.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Akshata Ahire “The spread of COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the heat recovery ventilator market players on many fronts and outside factors, including a temporary fluctuation in consumer demand and potential effects on the industrial robot speed reducer market from an uncertain economic perspective. The COVID-19 outbreak had a substantial impact on the industrial robot speed reducer market, resulting in low sales and low GDP. COVID 19 caused the manufacturing processes of various companies around the world to come to a halt in order to slow the spread of virus. The economy of numerous countries has been badly hit as a result of COVID 19 and purchasing power of companies is shrinking rapidly, due to slow commercial activity. The coronavirus pandemic revealed supply chain vulnerabilities and emphasized on the complexities of globalized supply chains and the importance of having a stable supply chain to nullify trade barricades.

Manufacturers of industrial robot speed reducer are adopting different approaches to build robustness and resilience in supply chains, majorly through mergers & acquisitions. Rapid growth of urbanization aids in expanding several industries such as the new homes and retrofit projects, which is boosting the demand for heat recovery ventilator in the coming years.”

Key Takeaways from the Study
