Market Overview

Warehouse robotics includes industrial and service robots that are used in warehouse operations to execute a variety of tasks such as picking, sorting, transporting, and packing. These self-sufficient devices are intended to replace manual labor and increase warehouse efficiency. Advancements in robotics and warehouse automation are driving up demand for robots like articulated arms, AMRs, and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) for heavy lifting and carrying duties. E-commerce companies' heavy investment is accelerating the expansion of warehouse robots in Japan. Furthermore, the rapid acceptance of Industry 4.0 is increasing the demand for automation, necessitating the usage of warehouse robots such as robotic arms, picking, sorting, and material handling systems. The demand for warehouse space is expanding significantly, prompting owners and operators to optimize their facilities. Mobile robots enable warehouse operations to grow in response to changing customer demands, reallocate labor resources to more value jobs, and save long-term operating expenses. Robotic warehouses employ less space per volume of goods, limiting product damage and lowering energy use. Moreover, electronics, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics have seen significant increases in online sales in Japan. With the growing demand for such long-lasting and semi-durable products, third-party logistics, independent cold storage, and warehouses are boost demand for robots across industries.
