2. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Robotics is a combination of different engineering skills for the application
of robots. Robots are the artificial agent which obey human orders, protect
its existence without harming the environment. They operate using devices
as sensors, controllers, cameras, software modules, and locomotors.
Robotics can be classified into industrial robotics and service robotics.
Warehouse Robots are the one used for activities such as palletizing,
replenishment, assembling, disassembling, consolidation, sortation,
packaging, labeling, inspection, storage etc. The warehouse robotics is
segmented on the basis of type, function, industry with geography. Robotic
arms, Gantry robots, Picking Carousels, Labelers, Conveyors, Automatic
Guided Vehicle (AGV), Robotic Forklifts, and Palletizers are some robots
used for warehousing activities. In wide range of industries such as Food
and Beverage, Automotive, Paper and Print, Medical, Defense,
Pharmaceutical, Textile, Chemical, Ports, Automated Retail, Electrical and
Electronics, Mining, Construction, Plastic and Rubber, Oil and Gas,
Agriculture and at Airport is the application of these robots are found. Sales
of such robot are estimated to grow at 11.3% CAGR.
In last 10 decades Warehouse Robotics has found to be growing and
expanding their Function in different Industries. While we talk about
Warehouse Robotics Function in regions like U.S., China, Japan, India,
Europe etc., are countries upgrading the technology, sophisticated
automation and giving rise to the robotic Functions in industry such as
Warehouse Robotics.
Key drivers of warehouse robotics market will include reduced space
utilization, reduced labor turnover, improved product quality, improved
production output, reduced operating costs, and improved product
flexibility.
