Food Robotics Market worth $3.1 billion by 2025 | Articulated Robots Dominates the Global Market

Automation has become an essential part of food industry in the past few decades. The increasing demand for processed foods and the growing production volume of food products has significantly surged the demand for robotics and automation in food industry. The flexibility, adaptability, and repeatability of the robots has highly influenced the food and beverage industry to adopt food robotics for various applications including palletizing, pick and place, processing, and packaging. The adoption of robotic systems are recently increased in the various food sectors such as dairy and dairy products, meat processing, and prepared foods.

Meticulous Research® –leading global market research companies published a research report titled “Food Robotics Market by Type (Articulated, Collaboration, Other), Payload (Medium, High), Application (Packaging, Palletizing), Industrial Vertical (Dairy Processing, Bakery, Beverage, Meat Products) – Global Forecast to 2025”.

In a report published, Meticulous Research® has stated that the size of the global food robotics market will reach $3.1 billion by 2025.

The researchers believe that the growth will be driven by a variety of factors. These include: increasing food safety regulations, rising demand for advanced food packaging, growing demand to improve productivity, increasing production of low-cost robots, increase in investments for automated solutions in food industry, and growing demand for reducing production cost and increasing food shelf-life leading to increased adoption of robotic systems.

The report states that articulated robots accounts for the largest share of the market. Meticulous Research® speculated as to why there is a greater adoption of these types of robots: “Articulated robots have ability to improve the operations productivity through improved speed and accuracy, thereby improving the quality of the products. Also, with the increasing popularity and longevity of the articulated robots, the price of these robots is decreasing, thereby making them more affordable. The articulated robots can be more compliant and can range from slow to high speed robot due to their multiple axis design compared to other robots”.
