The traditional robots segment is further categorized into articulated, SCARA (selective compliance articulated robot arm), delta/parallel, Cartesian, and other robots (which include spherical and dual-arm robots). The articulated robots segment accounted for the largest share of the global pharmaceutical traditional robots market in 2016. Articulated robots are easier to align to multiple planes, simple to operate and maintain, and have a greater work envelope. Moreover, these robots provide a wide variety of payload capacities. These factors contribute to the high share of this segment.
