Is “in-house” ever going to be a phenomenon in industrial robotics

This might be a very dumb question. But I thought, I will give it a shot.

Right now the robotics arm market is dominated by few players like Kuka, Fanuc, et.al. How do you think the future of robotics automation going to pan out. Will these companies continue to dominate, or will many company will start investing in developing their own in-house robotics teams. I mean, software development, machine learning/analytics, they started as services, but as their business impact increased, most companies started building in-house teams for these.

So similarly, for robotics, would this happen. I mean, I really don’t think robotics arm is all that rocket science. It is doable with enough maths, design, programming, and project management. Would this happen though ?
