The global Logistics robots market size stood at USD 4.70 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 14.95 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 15.7% during the forecast period.

The growing demand for e-commerce fulfillment services and complex supply chain operations is a major factor responsible for the emergence of robotics systems for Logistics solutions. Today, the retailers, distribution centers, and warehouse owners are switching from manual processes to automation for material handling. The major interest is to ensure real-time delivery and achieve efficiency and productivity in the operational process. However, until now, these robots lacked the intelligence to identify and handle tens of thousands of constantly changing products in a typical dynamic warehouse operation. While technological advancement resulted in overcoming such barriers. This technology includes AI and machine learning, better sensors and response capability, and warehouse management software. The evolution of such upgradation in robots is creating a potential impact on market demand. Furthermore, warehouse operations are labor-intensive. The high cost of labors for performing various tasks is compelling warehouse owners to integrate automated Logistics solutions. This is further promoting the Logistics robots market growth.

Growing Trends towards Autonomous Warehouses is Anticipated to Swell the Market

The growing trend of warehouses equipped with autonomous solutions is gaining traction. The operational workflow including scanning, pick and place, transportation, and others are mostly managed by these industrial robots. The market is expected to grow at a significant rate in the coming years with the rising autonomous warehouses. Also, Logistics service providers are aggressively pouring investments which are further expected to drive the market. For instance, an American based Logistics service provider company named XPO Logistics invests USD 550 million a year to integrate industry-leading innovations across its operations in North America and Europe. Furthermore, the growing e-commerce industry, the importance of real-time inventory, rising labor costs, and others are some of the contributing factors anticipated to boost the market.


Rise in E-commerce Industry is expected to Propel Growth

The order fulfillment in the e-commerce sector is a major contributor to the rise in Logistics robot deployment. The growing number of online customers is enforcing retailers to adopt the automation process to perform tedious, tasks through robotic solutions to map up with the delivery timelines. Also, the effective integration of digital automation networks provides a real-time overview of the operations. Owing to this, manufacturers, Logistics, and other companies can easily gauge the status of the operations. This functioning is vital for the e-commerce sector as they majorly focus on fulfilling the customer's demand on time. This is also adding impetus to the growth of the market.


High Setup Costs Involved at Initial Stage can Hinder Growth

The market for Logistics robots is fueling owing to its ability to perform various applications. Having said that, these robots are streamlined with various programming software and sensors which perform different tasks in a row. This involves high costs associated with procuring and programming such robots resulting in slowing down the market. Additionally, the developing economies wherein regional players operate find it difficult to pour heavy investments in conducting research & development activities to meet up the leading innovations. This could further lead to restricting the market growth. Moreover, small and medium scale retailers are unable to invest in robotic solutions and hire laborers for performing repetitive tasks at warehouses and distribution centers. This is further inhibiting market demand. Furthermore, the breakdown of the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the growth of the Logistics market to a greater extent. The immediate shutdown of manufacturing plants, warehouses, distribution centers, and others has created an adverse impact on the overall supply chain systems. Also, this adverse impact would hamper the revenue generation for the facility owners.
