Logistics Robots Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

The good ROI offered by logistics robots is notably driving the logistics robots market growth, although factors such as the need for technical expertise may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the logistics robots industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Logistics Robots Market Driver

The good ROI offered by logistics robots is notably driving the logistics robots market growth. The forecast period is expected to see an increase in demand for logistics robots as they offer a good Return on investment (ROI) compared with systems such as forklifts that have traditionally been used in manufacturing and non-manufacturing environments. The major drivers of logistics robots when compared with forklifts and human labor include, drop in the cost of equipment, components such as sensors, and the cost of integration along with the time required for integration, adoption of advanced technologies such as machine learning logic, human-machine collaboration, and environmental analysis technologies, adoption of automation and robotics due to the rise of labor costs and stringent regulations in difficult working conditions.

Key Logistics Robots Market Trend

The growth in the e-commerce sector is the key market trend driving the logistics robots market growth. With the improvement in internet penetration and an increase in the adoption of online shopping, there has been a major boom in the e-commerce sector. The quality of packaging and timely delivery are the differentiating factors for any e-commerce player competing with brick and mortar retailers. The demand for flexibility, more stock-keeping units (SKUs), and swift returns processing are triggering the need for automation by e-commerce players that rely on thirty-party logistics providers significantly. The development of e-commerce has revealed the need for selective mass picking of goods on a near 24/7 basis. For instance, major e-commerce players, such as Amazon and eBay, are strategizing to improve customer experience and are increasingly partnering with logistics providers that have advanced warehouse and delivering operations to maintain their leadership and competitive advantage. For instance, Amazon acquired Kiva Systems, a manufacturer of robots that services warehouses for applications such as packaging and carton handling.

Key Logistics Robots Market Challenge

The major challenge impeding the logistics robots market growth is the need for technical expertise. The lack of such technical knowledge often deters end-users from adopting robots, as they consider the downtime required for maintenance tasks as considerable productivity and financial loss. Though robotic companies are trying to overcome these issues by providing 24/7 remote support and service through cloud monitoring and other enhanced services, it is not a trend among all vendors. To excel in the market, vendors will have to increasingly adopt online and offline training and consultation methods to ensure that end-users with low familiarity with technology get the required support. Lack of skilled operators and proper training has resulted in a certain disinclination to execute wide-scale robotic automation, as substantial time, training, and budget have to be allocated for successful implementation. The reluctance of end-users to learn and switch to new technologies also affects market growth. We expect the scenario to change gradually with more end-users transitioning from traditional manual operations to automated functions to improve their process efficiency.

This logistics robots market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 had adversely impacted several countries in APAC. Governments of several countries in APAC introduced emergency legislation that imposed lockdowns to contain the spread of COVID-19. Owing to the global outbreak of COVID-19, the region has witnessed an increase in the demand for and adoption of logistics robots in hospitals. The robot helped doctors and nurses to reduce their risks of exposure to infected patients, as many hospitals in Thailand faced a shortage of masks and protective suits in 2020. There is an increase in the use of logistics robots in the warehousing industry also as it involves less human contact and intervention. Thus, the demand for logistics robots in the region is expected to grow during the forecast period.
