Warehouse Robotics Market Overview
Warehouse Robotics Market is expected to grow to reach USD 13.35 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 13.5% during the forecast period 2020-2030. The warehouse robotics market provides the deployment of robotics in the warehouse to perform the operations like pick-place, material batching, ordering, warehouse security, inspection, transportation, packaging, and palletizing, as well as improve operational efficiency by huge margins. Recently, robotics has gained huge importance in the supply chain, distribution center, and warehouse management circles and plays a significant role in warehouse automation.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the majority of the businesses are shut down, operations across various enterprises, warehouses, and manufacturing units are halted. To control the spread of the virus, the government has implemented stringent rules like maintaining social distancing, lockdowns of business sectors, and halting transportations, supply chains, etc. India is affected drastically and the warehouse robotics market is also affected by this pandemic.
Even in this pandemic situation, robots and automation are very helpful in managing the situation. Moreover, they are demanding highly for home deliveries which play an important role in this situation. However, the COVID brings new opportunities to the warehouse robotics market.
The growth in the e-commerce industry, and the introduction of advanced technologies in robotics, the rising need for efficient warehousing, inventory management are the factors that drive the warehouse robotics market growth. By using automation in warehousing provides the benefits like cutting down overall business costs, time-saving, and reduces errors during product delivery. Growing demand for automation and rising awareness regarding quality and safety products are accelerating the market’s growth in the forthcoming years.
Advanced technologies like sensor technologies provide an enhanced object perception and an accurate positioning system which helps in various warehousing applications that attains an optimal operational flow and logistics efficiency that enhances the growth of the market. Moreover, active funding from venture capitalists also drives the growth of the market.
Higher costs related to training & deployment, lack of skilled workforce, and feeling difficulty in interacting with robots for some end users are hindering the growth of the market.
The growing demand for automation and awareness regarding safety and quality production is anticipated to bring significant growth opportunities to the warehouse robotics market forecast.
Lack of awareness along with complexity in interacting with robots, the threat of job displacement, and designing an advanced robotic system that meets the requirement of consumers in the era of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are the challenging factors of the warehouse robotics market.
The global warehouse robotics market has been divided into segments based on type, software, function, end-user, and region.
The robotics market by type is segmented into cartesian robots, cylindrical robots, SCARA robots, parallel robots, mobile robots, articulated robots, and others. Among them, in 2016, the Mobile robots segment account for the largest warehouse robotics market share and is expected to grow at a significant rate during the assessment period. These are widely used by the leading e-commerce companies and are also gradually implemented in warehouses operated by manufacturing companies. Mobile robots are easy to set up and cheaper to operate, faster return on investment (ROI).
Robotics in the warehouse market based on the software is classified into the warehouse management system, warehouse control system, warehouse execution system, and others. Out of these, the warehouse management system accounts for the largest market share of the warehouse robotics market. It is a highly specialized business application that controls multiple warehouses. It has the benefits like improved space utilization, higher productivity, reduced inventory, reduced cost, and improved customer satisfaction.
The global warehouse robotics market based on function is bifurcated into pick and place, palletizing & de-palletizing, transportation, packaging, and others. Among them, the Pick and place segment holds the largest market share. These pick and place robots are accurate, highly efficient, reduce the order processing time, related cost, and are used in various industries.
Based on end-user, the warehouse robotics market is divided into e-commerce, automotive, food & beverages, consumer electronics, healthcare, and other sectors. Out of these segments, the e-commerce and food & beverage segment are the two highly demanding industries in the market. These industries invest in robots with smaller load capacities. The E-commerce industry holds the largest share in the market for the growing demand for online shopping, rising demand for shorter delivery times, rapidly changing customer demands.
Regionally, the global warehouse robotics market is segmented into Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the world. Out of these regions, North America leads the market share during the forecast period for their growing demand and awareness towards quality and safety production.
The warehouse robotics market segments are based on regions as Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and the rest of the world. North America accounts for the largest market share during the review period for their rising demand and awareness towards quality and safety production. Moreover, higher adoption of warehouse automation technologies, a high number of established players, modernizing their plants are driving the demand for this market in this region.
Furthermore, Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing region in the market for the increase in production facilities, continuous up-gradation, rising domestic demand for products, and improved efficiency of warehouses are the factors that increase the demand for the market in this region. According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) presents the World Robotics report in September 2019 that Asia is the world’s largest industrial robot market. China remains the largest market with a market share of 36% of total installations.
