Market outlook of the industrial robotics market in the food and beverage industry

Technavio’s market research analysts expect the global industrial robotics market in the food and beverage industry to multiply at an incredible rate, posting a CAGR of close to 29% during the forecast period. Factors such as the demand for clean and contamination-free production areas is driving the manufacturers to deploy industrial automation in the food and beverage industry. Countries such as Japan, the US, South Korea, and Australia have a higher demand for industrial robots in their food and beverage companies.

GTRI, a nonprofit research institute in the US, developed robots for deboning meat in 1999. Similarly, DeLaval developed the world's first robotic rotary dairy in 2006. Ever since, there has been an exponential increase in adoption of robots in the food and beverage industry in countries that include Australia, China, Mexico, Germany, and the US.

Segmentation of the industrial robotics market in the food and beverage industry by type

  • Articulated
  • Cartesian
  • Delta

The articulated robots in the food and beverage industry held the largest share and accounted for about 42% of the market share in 2014, and this segment is predicted to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Articulated robots can perform applications like palletizing, packaging, and pick and place as they have a higher degree of freedom than the other types of robots.
