A far-reaching analysis and segmentation of the global material handling robotics market by end-user (automotive, chemical, electrical and electronics, industrial machinery, food and beverage, and others) and geography (APAC, EMEA, and the Americas). The report discusses the drivers and trends influencing the market growth and a detailed analysis of the top vendors in the market, including ABB, FANUC, Kuka, Kawasaki Robotics, and Yaskawa Electric.

Market outlook of the material handling robotics market

Material handling robots are used in various applications like packaging, pick and place, and palletizing/de-palletizing. The convenience and the significant cost reduction offered by these robots is expected to uplift the growth of the material handling robotics market.

Technavio predicts the global material handling robotics market to grow at a significant rate of nearly 9% during the forecast period.

Rapid industrialization in developed and emerging economies has led to the shortage of skilled labor, which is expected to increase in the future, especially in countries such as China, Japan, Germany, Russia, and France. Therefore, to improve the production efficiency and overcome the skilled labor shortage, companies are increasingly adopting industrial robots, especially material handling robots.
