The growth of the packaging robots market is driven by rising demand for packaging robots from several industries and growing demand for reducing the overall operation costs across packaging sector, the report says. However, intelligent modernization and adoption of vision sensor technology is emerging as a future trend in the industry.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a surge in online shopping across the world. E-commerce sales have witnessed a significant growth rate over recent years. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), in 2021, 2.14 billion people (i.e., 27.6% of the world’s population) shopped for products from online portals. The growing demand for online shopping is pushing companies to perform faster picking and placement operations, which is raising the demand for packaging robots, the report says. In the e-commerce industry, picking robots are used for order fulfillment as manually picking of items is associated with a lot of time and cost.
