Milking Robots Market Size and Overview:


The global milking robots market size is projected to be worth ~USD 5.12 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of ~10.27% during the forecast period (2022 - 2030)


In recent years, the trend for automated milking systems (AMS) has gained momentum. Milking robots assist dairy owners in cost-effectively accelerating their enterprises in the dairy sector. The need for these robots is increasing quickly as a result of customer demand for higher levels of milk quality and quantity, as well as growing worries about the health of the herd and the well-being of farmers' working circumstances. In theory, these robots offer more flexibility and frequency of milking times than traditional milking methods. Additionally, because these robots have a framework of simplified technology encompassing total operations, the operator's involvement is limited. As a result, the operator is free to concentrate on other aspects of farm management. Additionally, manufacturers consistently place a focus on updating and introducing technologically advanced robots to boost profits and enhance overall efficiency, potentially having an impact on the growth of the milking robot market.


COVID-19 Analysis


As a result of COVID-19, businesses all over the world have been negatively impacted, suffering revenue losses and disrupted supply chains. This is because COVID-19 has prompted factory shutdowns and quarantine measures to be implemented all over the world, which in turn restricts movement and business activities. On the other hand, lockdowns have resulted in a lack of manpower in agricultural settings, which has resulted in a slight increase in demand for service robots such as milking robots. In the year 2020, the market for milking robots experienced a slight expansion. However, beginning in 2021, the industry began experiencing significant expansion as a result of a relaxation of restrictions and the launch of firms across the world.


Milking Robots Market Dynamics


Drivers




  • Customized design and consistent workflow boosts the market

    • The milking robots are specially made to best meet the farmer's preferences and requirements. At the time of milking, each cow also establishes her rhythm, the effectiveness of which is greatly influenced by the cow's comfort and willingness. As a result, the robot was created with cows in mind. The robot makes sure the cow is at ease, comfortable, and free from the arm movement that would otherwise cause her to milk frequently and quickly. The technology also detects the cow and determines when the best opportunity for it to produce its most milk is. Having said that, it is anticipated that a room will open up in the coming years due to the customization and operating efficiency of these robots. Additionally, it is projected that the end of the COVID-19 pandemic will cause a major slowdown in market expansion. However, as end-user demand rises, milk production is accelerating, which might offer profitable commercial prospects for dairy farms to meet demand around the world.



  • Automation has led to lower labour costs in dairy farms

  • The food industry's rising demand for dairy products is boosting market expansion


Market Opportunities




  • Increasing herd sizes and better automation technologies are fuelling demand for milking robot systems

    • The need for milking robot systems in the dairy farming business is being driven by both the large growth in herd sizes and the advent of cutting-edge automation technologies. Numerous dairy operations, such as herd management, milking processes, and dairy farm management, can now be automated thanks to technology. Due to the process's increased efficiency and regularity, it also facilitates milk production. Utilizing robot technology helps maintain product quality while reducing the demand for labor.




Market Restraints




  • High initial investment

    • The market expansion for milking robots is significantly hampered by the hefty initial investment. Adoption of hardware elements and technological advancements such automation and control devices, sensing and monitoring equipment, results in upfront installation costs as well as ongoing operational costs. The high cost of milking robots is heavily influenced by hardware components, cloud-based or on-premise software solutions, and a range of services including connectivity, system integration and consultation, managed services, and aided professional services. Additionally, because the majority of farms around the world are small- to medium-sized, investing heavily in modern and automated solutions may result in losses. This is extremely common in developing nations like India, Brazil, and China, where the livestock industry is unregulated and farm herd sizes are relatively small.



  • Milking Robots Market Segment Overview


By Offering


Based on offering, the Milking Robots Market is segmented into hardware, software, and services. Some of the key factors driving demand for milking robots hardware include the growing adoption of milking robots, rising preference for automated hardware and systems, technological advancements by key players to introduce innovative products, growing demand for dairy products, and subsequent growth in the number of dairy cows globally. Additionally, during the forecast period, there is expected to be an increase in demand for sensing and monitoring solutions for dairy farming due to rising awareness about remote monitoring of dairy cows, identification and tracking of dairy cows using sensor technology, and behavior monitoring and control of livestock on dairy farms.


By System Type


Based on system type, the Milking Robots Market is segmented across single-stall unit, multi-stall unit, and rotary system. With the rising demand for milk and dairy products around the world, the multi-stall unit is predicted to become dominant and maintain it in the years to come. The milking procedure is best carried out concurrently in a multi-stall system. This expedites operational workflow while minimizing expense. Additionally, small and medium-sized businesses prefer multi-stall to achieve optimal efficiency, save capital expenditure, and provide an early return on investment.


Owing to the significant investments being made in rotary systems, which perform numerous duties, and other factors, it is projected that rotary milking rotary and single-stall units would experience significant growth in the coming years. The first system type, the single stall, is best suited for small farms. It enables small farm operators to profit from relatively cheap capital expenditures.


By Herd Size


Based on herd size, the Milking Robots Market is segmented into upto 100, between 100 to 1000, and more than 1000. With the rising demand for milk and milk products in many locations, it is projected that the 100-1000 sector would expand significantly in the upcoming years. Additionally, to increase production and yield through herds, medium-sized dairy farms are focusing on implementing rotary or multi-stall milking robots.


Due to the growing number of herds and rising concerns for dairy management and farm management, the less than 100 and 1001 and above segment is anticipated to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period. Additionally, the system developed seems to be an effective method for carrying out milking tasks on dairy farms, positively affecting the market.


Regional Analysis


The milking robots market based on the region has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World.


Due to the presence of major manufacturers, the region's high demand for milk and milk products, as well as significant investments in research and development made in nations like Germany, the UK, and others, Europe holds the largest share of the market in 2019. Furthermore, this region also experiences high labor costs. Robotics technology is often used in this area to alleviate or lower labor costs.


Due to the significant presence of manufacturers, it is projected that the markets in North America and the Asia Pacific will grow more rapidly in the next years. The main drivers of this market expansion are the rapid growth of milk production centers in nations like the United States, China, and others, the rise in average herd size, and the adoption of new technologies.
