Global Material Handling Robotics Market 2015-2019

Global Material Handling Robotics Market 2015-2019

Market outlook of the material handling robotics market

Material handling robots are used in various applications like packaging, pick and place, and palletizing/de-palletizing. The convenience and the significant cost reduction offered by these robots is expected to uplift the growth of the material handling robotics market.

Technavio predicts the global material handling robotics market to grow at a significant rate of nearly 9% during the forecast period.

Rapid industrialization in developed and emerging economies has led to the shortage of skilled labor, which is expected to increase in the future, especially in countries such as China, Japan, Germany, Russia, and France. Therefore, to improve the production efficiency and overcome the skilled labor shortage, companies are increasingly adopting industrial robots, especially material handling robots.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report Global Material Handling Robotics Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Material Handling Robotics Market: ABB, FANUC, Kuka, Kawasaki Robotics and Yaskawa Electric
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Adept Technology, Apex Automation and Robotics, Axium, Denso Robotics, Ellison Technologies, Epson Robotics, Mitsubishi Electric, Pari Robotics, Staubli Robotics, and TM Robotics.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: The strict legislations enacted by various countries, especially in the chemicals and food and beverage industries, should act as a major driver for the market in the future. Major food and beverage manufacturers are looking to robotics as a solution to avoid violation of norms and adhere to strict regulatory guidelines.
According to the report, the need for personal safety and reduction of industrial accidents has resulted in industries adopting material handling robots. Employees sometimes have to work in harsh environments for pick and place and also in packaging processes. There is a possibility of industrial accidents during these operations, especially in the chemicals industry. This has created a need whereby regular operations have to be carried out without human intervention with the help of robots.
Further, the report states that the space constraints challenge could have an enormous impact on users operating within a small or limited floor area.
