The Global Production of Material Handling Robots was 100,604 units in 2016

Material handling robots are used in various streams such as pick and place, palletizing/depalletizing, and the packaging sector. They are used to improve material handling efficiency, flexibility, and constancy in the manufacturing processes. The use of material handling robots in a production plant not only reduces the ergonomic threats but also helps to improve the lean management system of the business.

Material handling robots can manage case-picking functions and can also handle carts for contentment centers or manufacturing process for parts to the lines of operation. The lifting capacity of material handling robots can be over 150 lbs (68 kg). The twin arm manipulator can lift and handle almost every warehoused material. These robots help reduce workplace fatigue and injury.

Increases in the number of manufacturing facilities and the growth of production plants are among the major drivers of the material handling robotics market. The ability to simplify and decrease time consumption in production functions, while enhancing dependability, accuracy, and the involvement of low task force are the additional market drivers. The development of the material handling robotics market is expected to rise due to the suitability and the substantial cost reduction offered by these robots. Sorting systems, sliding belts, picking systems, and material putting robots are some of the material handling robots that have gained significance in recent years. The initial investment required for material handling robots is high, but in the long run these robots provide a competitive edge.

The global material handling robots market had developed gently and been in obvious fluctuations in the before 2012. After 2012, the global material handling robots developed rapidly and continued to grow. In 2016, the global production of material handling robots was 100,604 units in 2016, and it will be 283,740 units in 2022. While global material handling robots revenue was 3,633 million US$ in 2016 and it will be 8,594 million US$ in 2022, with a CAGR of 15.4% between 2016 and 2022.

In the past few years, China plays an increasingly weighty role. And the international giants FANUC, ABB, Yaskawa, KUKA, Nachi and Kawasaki Robotics, have established factories in China to produce industrial robots. At the same time, lots of Chinese local players enter this business, like Siasun, Anhui EFORT Intelligent Equipment, Estun Automation, Guangzhou CNC Equipment and STEP Electric Corporation etc., these Chinese players already have planned to expand the production capacity of industrial robots in next few years. But most of robots are low-end products, lack of core technologies and competitiveness, low stability and high cost, dependence on importing robot reducers, controllers and servo motors from Japanese and European players like Nabtesco, Harmonic and SUMITOMO etc.

Currently, the global material handling robots market is still dominated by players from Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, United States and Korea, like FANUC, Yaskawa (Motoman), Nachi, Kawasaki Robotics, EPSON Robots, DENSO Robotics, OTC Daihen, Toshiba and Mitsubishi Electric from Japan; KUKA from Germany; ABB and Staubli from Switzerland; Hyundai Robotics from Korea; Omron Adept Technologies from United States and Comau from Italy. In future, the Korean players be likely to play more important roles in the next several years, for example, Hyundai Robotics has set a goal of making 500 billion won ($ 444 million) in revenue by 2021 and becoming one of the top five robotics companies in the world.
