Global agricultural robots market overview

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global agricultural robots market will grow steadily at a CAGR of close to 18% by 2021. This market research identifies the shortage of skilled labor in the dairy industry as one of the primary growth factors for this market. With relatively lower labor requirements in automated processes, dairy farms are preferring robotic milking that helps in increasing productivity and output and also aids in achieving greater profits. Additionally, the increase in awareness about the overall hygiene among the consumers that demands the need to meet hygienic guidelines, also induces dairy farms to adopt robotic milking systems.

One of the latest trends in the agricultural robots market in the coming years is the innovations in gripper technology. Owing to their ability to detect fruits and their ripeness and the skill to grasp and detach them with more finesse and less harm by focusing on aspects such as nanotechnology, materials science, and mechatronics, gripper technology will gain significance in the agriculture industry.
