The global 3D Sewing Robots market is expected to grow at a 6.24 percent CAGR from 2022 to 2028. The projection was recently done in the latest market research published by Exactitude Consultancy.
The study says the market is expected to reach above US $ 135.8 million by 2026 from US $ 93.7 million in 2021.
Traditionally, the textile industry is dependent on manual labour and is among those industries with low employee turnover. Material cost and cut-and-sew labour are the two largest overheads in apparel manufacturing. As the industry moved forward to meet the growing demand for specific and high-quality textile products, the production facilities needed to be more efficient, cost-effective and error-free, reads the report.
The new technological development towards the adoption of automation in textiles also requires skilled labour. In order to overcome this challenge, the industry is innovating 3D sewing robots. These robotic systems are gradually gaining acceptance in the textile industry due to their niche uses.
Based on consumer needs, these robots come in different systems that can deliver specific requirements. Automated sewing robots can efficiently sew fabrics, wool and leather material. These robots are made through the combination of sewing heads, grippers and various robotic arms to complete the job. The robotic arms come with a laser scanner that can scan pieces of clothes and are mainly applied in sewing fabrics for automotive interiors.
