The warehouse robots are just an extension of Industrial Robots intended for applications in warehouses and distribution centers. Over the years, Industrial Robots have evolved themselves from being a novel product to a commodity. Some of the prominent end-user industries deploying industrial robots include automotive, food and beverage, manufacturing, retail distribution centers, semiconductor and many others. Among all the industrial robots the gantry robots, articulated robots and Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are widely used for warehouse operations as to pick, place, palletize, and sort objects. Use of these robots together can eliminate human existence in the warehouse and perform autonomously.
Table of contents and insights:
The global warehouse robotics market is classified according to the types of robots used such as fixed or mobile robots, the warehouse functions, components used in the robots, end-user industries and geographic region. The gantry and articulated robots have been segmented under Fixed Robots category while mobile robots market deal with the utilization of AGVs in warehouses. The major warehouse activities involve goods consolidation, order fulfillment and goods distribution. The increasing global competition in maintaining quality, time and customer service have led to automation. The market for warehouse robotics has also been segmented into prominent end-user industries including Automotive Aftermarket, Food & Beverage, Retail Distribution Centers and Manufacturing while other niche sectors employing these robots in warehouses have been segmented in others category. The last segment in the report consists of warehouse robotics market based on geography which includes Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Rest of the World (RoW). Each of these geographic regions is further classified into prominent countries to offer a complete overview of warehouse robotics market.
Fixed robots are more convenient for the major monotonous functions in the warehouse including palletizing, de-palletizing and material handling. For this reason, the fixed robots market will advance more than that of mobile robots during the forecast period. Also, the rise in labor cost is responsible for the growth of warehouse robots market. Mobile robots are widely used in retail distribution centers and manufacturing industries. According to IndustryARC analysis the warehouse robots market shipment will increase from 8,643 units in 2015 to 12,279 units by 2020 with a CAGR of 7.3%.
