Sales Analysis of Palletizing Robot (2018-2022) Vs. Market Outlook (2023-2033)

One of the most important pieces of equipment in automated material handling systems is the palletizer. In a warehouse, distribution centre, or manufacturing facility, the pallet construction process is automated using either traditional palletizers or robotic palletizers, depending on the requirements. Numerous various technologies could be used, depending on the palletizer, to assist the producer in creating the ideal pallet.

To maximize production and packaging applications, verticals like food & beverage, logistics, industrial packaging, and others rely on robotic palletizers & de-palletizers. Because robotic palletizing & de-palletizing systems can be used in extreme climatic conditions with optimum speed and accuracy, which are semi- and fully automatic robotic systems, are significantly replacing labor-intensive picking processes. In the coming years, the manufacturers will benefit from the growing preferences for automated packaging solutions, such as robotic palletizers and de-palletizers.

  • Short Term (2023 to 2026): The palletizing robots market is expected to grow due to the rising technological advancement.
  • Medium Term (2026-2029): United States and China being under spotlight as the countries are leading players in production of palletizing robotics. Increasing technological advancements are being backed by both developed and developing countries,
  • Long Term (2029-2033): In developing countries the demand for palletizing robots is expected to grow due to the need to meet the increasing production capacity and optimum efficiency.

From 2018 to 2022, the global market for palletizing robots registered a CAGR of 7.1% Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, reveals that the market will exhibit growth at 9.4% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

What’s Driving High Demand for Palletizing Robots across Regions?

Operational efficiency have driven the market growth

Large or heavy pallet loads cannot be manually palletized. Additionally, there is a very significant likelihood that improper handling of pallets may result in product destruction. The labor force also wants a variety of benefits for productive work and job satisfaction. When done manually, all these factors result in a slow rate of operation.

Despite their high initial cost relative to human costs, robotic palletizers and de-palletizers outperform the majority of the drawbacks of manual palletizing and de-palletizing in the long run, proving to be a highly productive and economical industrial solution. The need for routine machinery maintenance has decreased as a result of technological advancement. In comparison to manual palletizing, palletizing systems may work at a considerably higher rate without making any mistakes.

Palletizing System Use in the Food and Beverage Industry is Growing, Driving the Market

Many end-use industries, such as the pharmaceutical, chemical, personal care, and cosmetics industries use palletizing systems significantly. Due to its low cost, compact design, and high throughput rate, palletizer is ideal for end-line packaging of food and beverage products.

The food and beverage business has made considerable investments in automation, which have a wide range of positive effects on various production levels. Optimal coordination is required for ordering, manufacturing and packaging of goods till the time the goods reaches to the consumer.

It is no secret that automated palletizing technology can do duties more effectively and precisely, and vendors are constantly under pressure to provide goods in greater quantities and with more variety. Therefore, the food & beverage industry will likely to share the highest market growth.

What Could be the Restraining Factor for Palletizing Robots Market?

Shift towards Robotics from Conventional Palletizers to be the Costly

The expensive and sophisticated technology used in the palletizing process leads to less likely to be preferred by small and medium scale manufacturers. As the technology needs regular checks to ensure the optimum efficiency of the product. The initial cost involve in the product is also very high due to which small and medium scale manufacturers prefer conventional palletizers.

Additionally, palletizers with greater standards are more expensive and do not meet the needs of manufacturers with low and medium output levels. The higher cost factor is limiting the installation of palletizing robots across the end use verticals. However, to overcome this numerous market companies have discovered a chance in focusing on the needs of low output manufacturers and developing items that might increase a low output manufacturer's efficiency and stimulate their purchasing power.

Country-wise Insights

How Palletizing Robots market is skyrocketing in Germany?

The biggest producers and exporters of robots and agricultural goods geared toward consumers are Germany and Italy. The market in Europe is anticipated to be driven by ongoing technological R&D activity and government initiatives. For instance, the introduction of the "Impreza 4.0" national plan and the establishment of institutions like the Italian Institute of Technology or the Made Competence Center, which links Italian SMEs with 4.0 technologies, show the country's desire to create a robotics ecosystem.

Thus, the market for palletizing robots in Germany is anticipated to reach US$ 284.4 million and it will capture the 31% of market share by 2023 in Europe.

Why is the China Palletizing Robots Market Expected to Be Highly Lucrative?
