Warehouse Robotics Market by Type (Mobile, Articulated, Cylindrical, SCARA, Parallel, Cartesian), Software, Function (Pick & Place, Palletizing & Depalletizing, Transportation, Packaging), Payload Capacity, Industry, and Region - Global Forecast to 2022

“Warehouse robotics market to grow at a significant rate between 2017 and 2022”
The warehouse robotics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.8% between 2017 and 2022 and is expected to be valued at USD 4.44 billion by 2022. The key driving factors for the growth of the warehouse robotics market are the growing e-commerce industry, need for enhanced quality and reliability in warehouse operations, active funding from venture capitalists for startup robotics companies, increasing adoption of warehouse robotics by small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). However, the major restraining factors for the growth of this market are high setup cost for warehouse robotic systems and lack of skilled workforce.

“Mobile robots in the warehouse robotics market expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”
The market for mobile robots is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2017 and 2022. Workers travel throughout the warehouse to pick the desired item for order processing. They are prone to making errors while picking and placing the items from respective shelves. Mobile robots are highly capable in the performing the pick and place and transportation of items with negligible errors compared to human workers. Hence, companies are increasingly using mobile robotics to increase the efficiency of their warehouse leading to a high growth rate of the mobile robots market.

“E-commerce to hold the largest share of the overall warehouse robotics market in 2017”
The e-commerce industry is expected to hold the largest share of the overall warehouse robotics market in 2017. The e-commerce industry has been one of the major contributors to the growth of the warehouse robotics market. Rapidly changing customer demands, rise in online shopping, increasing demand for shorter delivery times, and fierce competition among online retailing companies has increased the demand for automated fulfillment centers.

“APAC to be the fastest-growing market for warehouse robotics during the forecast period”
The warehouse robotics market in Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to grow at a high rate between 2017 and 2022. Increasing trend of online retail shopping, growing number of startup companies developing mobile robots in India and China, and high attrition rate of warehouse workers are some of the key factors driving the growth of the warehouse robotics market in APAC.
