DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Food Robotics Market by Type, Application (Palletizing, Packaging, Repackaging, Pick & Place, Processing), Payload (Low, Medium, Heavy) & Region - Forecast to 2022" report to their offering.
The global food robotics market is estimated at USD 1.37 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 2.50 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 12.80% during the forecast period.
The primary factors that drive the market are increasing food safety regulations, higher demand for packaged foods, and the increasing need to improve productivity. One of the major restraining factors includes scarcity of skilled workforce in emerging economies. The rising production of low-cost robots and increasing functionality of robots maximize the growth of the food robotics market.
The collaborative robot segment by type is projected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period. A collaborative robot is a robot designed to assist human beings in a specific task. In one approach to the collaborative robot design, it allows humans to perform certain operations successfully and to steer them on the correct path if they deviate or exceed the scope of the task. The collaborative robot design is to expand the functioning of robots beyond providing repetitive motion and to include learning and thinking abilities.
The low payload segment is projected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The popular low payload series of robots include Staubli TP & TS 4-axis series and TX & TX2 6-axis series by Staubli International AG (Switzerland); KUKA KR Cybertech by KUKA AG (Germany); and Evermore CNC. By Evermore Machine Co. Ltd. (Taiwan). This market segment is growing at a rapid pace due to the increased usage of robot arms for applications such as picking & packaging.
The Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
