Market Analysis in Brief

The rise to prominence of the e-Commerce sector has elevated market growth prospects for the global warehouse robotics market. Product demand continued to increase exponentially due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, because of which online purchasing registered a steep spike in user sales. The advent of Industry 4.0 and its integration with various technological advancements such as big data, AI, machine learning, and IoT have all but further contributed to the adoption of these solutions due to the many benefits they offer. Moreover, heightened growth potential from various countries in the Asia Pacific are also expected to play a pivotal role in fuelling the growth trajectory of the global warehouse robotics market in the coming years.

Key Report Findings

  • The warehouse robotics market is expected to be valued at over US$5 Bn by 2026
  • e-Commerce sector to play a pivotal role in projected market growth
  • Asia Pacific to index the highest rate of growth over the forecast period
  • Midea Group to be the most valuable warehouse robotics manufacturer with an estimated value of US$53.07 Bn

Growth Drivers

Evolution of Industry 4.0

Increasing integration of Industry 4.0 is expected to present potential growth opportunities for the warehouse robotics market. The evolution of Industry 4.0 has transformed the manufacturing sector leading to new paradigms centred around automation, productivity, and efficiency. Aiming at developing an advanced operational environment, Industry 4.0 integration in warehouses is likely to create opportunities wherein warehouse robots and humans can co-work, boosting productivity in turn. By integrating Industry 4.0, robots can be programmed with specific commands and instructions that would enable their working under different operational circumstances. Warehousing facilities can easily adapt to the latest changes in their processing lines by using automation offered by Industry 4.0.

Furthermore, with this new-age technology, communication between human faculties and robots about different warehouse operations can be set up efficiently. In this continuously evolving ecosystem, this is expected to result in enhanced coordination between systems, in turn facilitating the completion of high velocity and time-critical tasks at a lesser cost. It also enables companies to carry out significant volume tasks such as the speedy delivery of goods, and the processing of customised orders with greater efficiency.

Augmentation of e-Commerce Industry

The e-Commerce sector has experienced rampant growth over the past couple of years, largely driven by omni-channel retailing, mobile adaptivity, buyer and seller convenience, and a greater range of product offerings across various brands. A growing inclination of customers to order online has resulted in the increasing of inventory goods in company warehouses. To cater to growing consumer demand, companies must stock a wider range of new products, all while ensuring their safe storage and packaging.

However, with this increase in volumes, it becomes tedious to manage storage and packaging activities. Companies have continued to invest in quick ROI and high-efficiency tools to manage their respective warehouse operations along with reducing delivery order times. This has triggered a greater implementation of warehouse robotics tools in company warehouses. Gaining favour as a comprehensive solution, warehouse robotics solutions are widely used by e-Commerce organizations to efficiently handle order management and fulfilment processes. Moreover, warehouse robotics also ensures human safety, the flexible movement of material, and traceability.

In addition, long term labour shortage has prevailed as a subject of concern at warehouse facilities. This translated to companies shifting their focus towards hardware and software solutions apropos to warehouse automation to gain a competitive edge. As such, the proliferation of robotic solutions in warehouses coupled with rising SKUs (stock keeping units) due to a booming e-Commerce sector are expected to boost the growth trajectory of the warehouse robotics market.

Growth Challenges

High Initial Investment and the Integration with Legacy Systems

The cost of buying and installing warehouse robotics systems can be high, and this may hinder adoption, particularly by small and medium-sized businesses. Another factor that may act as a roadblock is the need to integrate new robotics systems with existing legacy systems, which can be time-consuming and challenging. Moreover, a lack of skilled labour to use and maintain these systems could both lower the adoption of these systems and result in safety concerns stemming from the improper operation of these systems, particularly when workers and machines work near one another.

Overview of Key Segments

AMRs to Witness High Demand from Warehouses

Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are expected to gain significant traction largely contributing towards the growth of the warehouse robotics market. The growing preference from e-Commerce players along with the increasing need to enhance warehouse efficiency have resulted in companies opting for operational automation solutions. This has pushed the adoption of autonomous mobile robots in warehouses on the back of their perceived operational benefits. AMRs offer increased flexibility, easy integration, enhanced safety, high scalability, faster implementation, and ability to work with high volumes of stock keeping units. This aspect backed by technological advancements such as machine learning, robot mechanics, artificial intelligence, and deep learning, are expected to fuel the demand for AMRs, in turn complementing market growth prospects for the players engaged in the global warehouse robotics market.

Growth Opportunities Across Regions

Asia Pacific Likely to Reign Supreme

The growth of online retailing and the increasing number of start-ups being set up in various emerging economies of the Asia Pacific region are expected to bode well for the growth of the warehouse robotics market here. In addition, manufacturing has become a highly lucrative sector in the Asia Pacific owing to several macro factors such as cheap land and labour, a growing population resulting in a high customer pool, and the presence of several end-user companies due to favourable business environments. This has all resulted in the increasing demand for automation backed by the emergence of Industry 4.0.

Furthermore, active funding raised by venture capitalists, and increasing investments in robotic deployment across a range of industries have remained instrumental in driving the warehouse robotics market forward. For instance, ForwardX Robotics, a Chinese developer of AMRs offering services to manufacturing and warehousing environments closed its Series B funding in 2021 by raising another round of more than US$38 Mn, led by Dohold Capita, Eastern Bell Capital, and CDH Investment’s VGC.

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
