Food robotics characterize as the machines used in the food & beverage industry for performing various complex activities for instance picking, packing, and palletizing. These robots are constructed with the aim to support the manual efforts, to remove errors during primary or secondary food processing and to reduce the time & energy consumed.
According to study, “North America Food Robotics Market by Offering, Robot Type, Payload, Application, End-user, and Country 2015-2026: Trend Forecast and Growth Opportunity” the key companies operating in the North America food robotics market are John Bean Technologies Corporation, ABB Ltd., Fanuc Corp., Alfa Laval AB, Denso Corp., Comau S.P.A., Feldmeier Equipment Inc., IMA Group, GEA Group AG, Omron Corporation (Omron Adept Technologies), Krones AG, Mitsubishi Electric Corp., KUKA (Midea Group), Scherjon Dairy Equipment Holland, Paul Mueller Company, Shanghai Joylong Industry Co. Ltd., Seiko Epson Corporation (Epson Robotics), Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. (Yamaha Robotics), Tetra Pak international S.A., Stephan Machinery GMBH, SPX Flow Inc. and Yaskawa Electric Corp. The key players are likely to witness augmented demand for robotics solutions owing to growth in technological advancements over the forecast period.
By type, North America food robotics market is segregated as SCARA, articulated, cylindrical, Cartesian, collaborative, parallel robots and others. Articulated segment holds major share in market owing to rise in use of articulated systems for palletizing & material handling. Articulated robots have an extensive range of applications due to its capabilities including increased payload capacity, reliability, work envelope, and speed. By payload, market is segregated as low payload (<10 Kg), medium payload (>10 Kg–<100 Kg) and high payload (>100 Kg). Medium payload capacity robots are estimated to witness higher growth rate as they facilitate increase in performance & efficiency during the forecast period. By application, market is segregated as packaging, pick & place, palletizing, repackaging, processing and others. In addition, by end-user, market is segregated as bakery & confectionery, dairy products, brewery & beverage, meat & seafood, and others.
The North America food robotics market is driven by presence of significant robotics & automation solutions providers, followed by growth in manufacturing efficiency, rise in demand for automation in ready foodstuffs & meat processing, stringent rules & regulations on food safety and wide scale adoption of the latest automation & robotic systems in the immediate service restaurants or food manufacturing. However, lack of skilled professionals and high cost factor involved in the operating robotic systems are major hindering factors for market. Moreover, rise in demand for high-speed productivity and surge in the degree of automation are key opportunities for market.
Based on geography, the North America food robotics market is segmented as U.S and Canada. It is expected that future of the market will be bright as a result of rise in demand for packaged food and increase in food safety regulations in the region. It is also expected that the North America food robotics market will be reached at US $2.89 billion during 2019-2026.
