Global robotics market in the meat industry overview

According to Technavio’s market research report, the global robotics market in the meat industry will grow at a CAGR of close to 11% during the forecast period. The rising need for high productivity in the meat industry is one of the key drivers that will stimulate growth in the market during the estimated period. Meat business owners are increasingly inclining towards the incorporation of robotics in the meat industry to optimize productivity by extracting the maximum amount of meat from a carcass within a stipulated timeframe. Modern robotic technologies enhance meat processing, cutting, and packaging operations. The robots used in this industry exhibits 95% of accuracy because they can extract high-quality meat by accurately determining the specific position of bones in carcasses. Manufacturers are introducing technologically advanced robots that allow them to adjust the size of the equipment for various cutting applications.

The largest segment of the US agriculture is the cattle and poultry industry. Consequently, this region has a presence of large-scale players in the business in the Americas. Many meat industries in the region are taking efforts to expand their production rate of red meat to meet the growing demand. This, in turn, will boost the adoption of robotics in the meat industry.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global robotics market in the meat industry comprises of few reputed manufacturers and several system integrators. These vendors are increasingly competing against each other based on factors such as the price of robots, features, service life, and maintenance requirements.

The report offers a detailed analysis of several leading companies, including:

  • KUKA
  • SCOTT Automation & Robotics
  • Mayekawa
  • JLS Automation

Other prominent vendors in the market include Yaskawa Motoman, Universal Robots, BANSS, FANUC, and SINTEF.

 Robotics market segmentation in the meat industry by type 

  • Meat cutting robots
  • Meat processing robot
  • Meat packaging robots

The meat cutting robots have enhanced 3D vision capabilities, which enables them to identify maximum flesh areas and bones during the cutting process. This boosts the yield of cut meat up to 98%. The segment will continue to grow in the forthcoming years because meat cutting robots speed up the cutting process that cannot be attained by manual workers.

Robotics market segmentation in the meat industry by end-user 

  • Poultry industry
  • Cattle industry

The cattle industry is witnessing an increasing demand for red meat products. This encourages meat business owners to implement robotics in their production houses. The segment will continue to be the largest end-user during the estimated period due to the shortage of industry-specific workforce. This in turn, will create a demand for robots in the cattle industry.
