Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst product type, articulated robots category held a prominent share in the market in 2020”

On the basis of product type, the market is divided into mobile robots, articulated robots, cylindrical robots, SCARA robots, parallel robots, and cartesian robots. In 2020, articulated robots held a significant share of the market and are anticipated to witness influential growth during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the flexibility they provide during operation. It can perform arc welding, material processing, assembly, parts replacement, pick and place, packaging, system filling, and more. Articulated robots are widely used in manufacturing in a variety of applications such as welding, assembly, sealing, material handling, order picking, cutting, painting, and spraying.

“Amongst function, packaging category held a prominent share in the market in 2020”

On the basis of function, the market is categorized into pick & place, palletizing & depalletizing, transportation, packaging, and others. Among these, the packaging segment captured a significant share in the global warehouse robotics market in 2020 and is anticipated to hold a prominent share during the forecast period. This is because some companies are using robotic systems to improve packaging performance by installing sustainable and future-proof solutions. Packaging robots reduce labor and safety costs while increasing throughput. Robots operate at high speeds, increasing productivity and output. They allow the removal of loading funnels that slow down the throughput. Robots are also two qualities that are accurate, and flexible and contribute to their reputation as cost reducers.

“APAC to witness significant growth during the forecast period”

The Asia-Pacific warehouse robotics market is expected to witness a prominent CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this market can be attributed to the growing industrialization, growing e-commerce industry, and rapidly rising manufacturing sector in the region. The economic growth in the region is resulting in increasing the trend of online retail shopping, the rising number of start-ups in the region that are developing robots, and the increasing prices of warehouse labor are further contributing to the warehouse robotics market. Moreover, several global companies are increasingly investing in the robotics companies in the region, which is further accentuating the warehouse robotics market. For instance, Indian robotics company GreyOrange raised $110 Mn in comprehensive growth financing. A majority of the latest funding came from its existing investor Mithril Capital Management and a specific group of current and new investors, along with separate financing provided by funds and accounts under management by BlackRock.
