This market research study identifies ABB, FANUC, KUKA, Universal Robotics, and Yaskawa Motoman as the leading players in the global packaging robots market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by application (primary packaging and secondary packaging), by end-user (food and beverage industry, pharmaceutical industry, electronics and semiconductor industry, and machine tools and auto components industry), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global packaging robots market

Research analysis on the global packaging robots market identifies that the need for automatic detection and sorting will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. Packaging robots determine the position of objects using advanced sensors, vision technology, and laser-detection ability. These robots sort the objects on a moving conveyor belt automatically using the laser technology. They are also used to correctly sort the unorganized objects on the conveyor belt for primary and secondary packaging. These robots ensure the quality standard of packaging by determining the right product using the automatic detection technology. Furthermore, the robotic arm offers safety to industrial workers and reduce the downtime of operations. Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of close to 10% by 2021.

The adoption of industrial robots is high in both developing and developed countries of APAC. Also, the number of regional industrial robot manufacturers is increasing in the region. This in turn, will boost the availability of low-cost packaging robots. These low-cost packaging robots will be extensively used in fragmented industries such as the food and beverage and machine tools and auto components industries, in turn, driving the growth of this packaging machine market.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The packaging robots market is moderately fragmented and characterized by the presence of regional and global players. These vendors are increasingly competing against each other based on factors such as the market concentration, product differentiation, level of consolidation in supply chain, profitability, and degree of innovative solutions. Vendors in this packaging machine market are offering machines that are used for multi-purpose applications such as picking, palletizing, and packaging at the same time. They are also offering dual capability picking and packaging robots in industries. These robots are designed with different payload capacities and arm reach.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • ABB
  • KUKA
  • Universal Robotics
  • Yaskawa Motoman

Other prominent vendors in the market include Bosch Rexroth, Comau Robotics, and DENSO Robotics.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the packaging robots market

  • Primary packaging
  • Secondary packaging

Primary packaging application involve manufacturing and packaging of sensitive and delicate products in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Primary packaging maintains the shelf-life of products. The implementation of robots in primary packaging of medicines and liquid syrups provides high precision to maintain the quantity and quality of products. A large number of industries are adopting packaging robots because it helps to reduce the product and packaging wastage and optimizes the operational cost.

Segmentation by end-user and analysis of the packaging robots market

  • Food and beverage industry
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Electronics and semiconductor industry
  • Machine tools and auto components industry

Manufacturers in the food and beverage industry are switching from traditional assembly line methods to fully automated assembly lines to carry out customized packaging and standard packaging. This drives the adoption of vision-enabled packaging robots that are highly preferred for assembly line operations. Automation of these operations using packaging robots ensures high quality, speed, reliability, and precision during primary and secondary applications.
