Sales Analysis of Autonomous Robots (2018-2021) Vs. Market Outlook (2023-2033)
Robots that are built to function autonomously and for extended periods of time without human assistance are known as autonomous robots. Intelligent qualities found in autonomous robots can aid them in understanding their physical surroundings and automate tasks that were previously performed by human hands in maintenance and control.
Autonomous robots typically perform tasks without human interaction, unless the task requires human interaction. Many of these robots are equipped with sensors and other functional devices that help them recognize obstacles in their path and avoid corridors, rooms, and other environments. Complex delivery robots can also be programmed to move fully autonomously through multi-story buildings using elevators.
Manufacturing and robotics go hand in hand. Today's production environment heavily relies on robotics. Any organization that aims for safety, along with optimum efficiency, and market competitiveness should prioritize automated manufacturing systems.
- Short Term (2023 Q1 to 2026): Skilled labor and labor shortage problems post Covid-19 have improved the sales of autonomous robots.
- Medium Term (2026- 2029): The growing research and development in the field of robotics to provide a platform for the usage of autonomous robots.
- Long Term (2029- 2033): The integration of more technology and the emerging trend for industry 5.0 is expected to aid the growth of autonomous robots’ market.
From 2018 to 2022, the global market for autonomous robots registered a CAGR of 7.3%. Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, reveals that the market will exhibit growth at 9.2% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.
Market share analysis of autonomous robots based on region and application is provided in the above image. Under the application segment, assembly sub-segment dominates with 19.2% market share in 2023.
What’s Driving High Demand for Autonomous Robots across Regions?
“Increased flexibility and improved productivity in manufacturing to empower market growth”
Without the direct supervision of an operator, AMRs dynamically assess and adapt to their surroundings while carrying out a variety of duties. AMRs are able to comprehend and adapt to changes in their environment with the help of simultaneous location and mapping (SLAM) systems and modern mapping technologies. They are useful devices that may be applied across applications and sectors thanks to their versatility.
Businesses frequently use AMRs to help in picking, finding, and moving merchandise so that staff may concentrate on high-value tasks like customer care.
Many firms use low-powered AMRs that use less energy when productivity is crucial. AMRs can recharge and resume work more quickly when they require less power, which reduces downtime and keeps production and fulfillment flowing.
“Embracing lean manufacturing to provide platform for higher autonomous robots sales”
Preparations to work with less amount of people have forced manufacturers in different sectors to embrace the majority of the values ??of lean manufacturing, such as eliminating non-additive activities, creating traction in the production process, and creating flow among the stages in the production process. This allows manufacturers to eliminate some of the waste of lean manufacturing, including movement, waiting, transportation, and capacity waste.
Automation, and in particular autonomous robots, can contribute to the accurate implementation of the concept of lean manufacturing, especially by helping to eliminate waste from production processes. It is observed that the adoption of AMRs alone can contribute to sustainable manufacturing, the real value comes from the adoption of autonomous robots as part of industry 4.0 and smart factory initiatives, where sensors, AMRs, machines, and production systems are connected to each other and can communicate with each other using some standard internet protocols.
All these factors will initiate the use of autonomous robots thereby augmenting its sales and it will garner an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 3,848.9 million in the forecast period.

What Do Autonomous Robots Manufacturers Need to Watch Out for?
“High initial investments in the robotics solutions to hinder market growth”
The cost of under drive lifting robot are high and the manufacturers that develop under drive lifting robot currently are limited, making it costlier. High capital investment is required in procuring and programming autonomous deck lifts, which may discourage various end use industries from investing on such huge capital initially.
Small and medium-sized companies have relatively small budgets and are reluctant to incur high initial costs in robotic solutions, hence hire laborers for performing rack transportation in warehouses. Along with that since under drive lifting robot are more complex, the maintenance will be expensive and time consuming. This will generate pressure on the end use industries to reduce costs, which may act as a restraint on the market.
