The industrial robots for food & beverage industry market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.26% over the forecast period to reach US$2,661.657 million by 2027 from US$1,184.828 million in 2020.

Industrial robots are automated machines equipped advance controllers, actuators, and sensors that enable them to perform various manufacturing functions in an industrial environment. In the food & beverage sector, industrial robots have high applicability ranging from production, and processing to packaging, palletizing, and pick & place. Rapid population growth has increased the scale of food & beverage consumption among people globally. For instance, according to the World Bank, in 2021, the global population stood at 7.68 billion which showed an increase of 9.7% in comparison to 2011’s global population figure. Moreover, technological advancements have increased the demand for modern technologies in manufacturing food & beverage products which are further providing wider usage prospects to industrial robots in the food & beverage sector. The usage of industrial robots enhances the automation level in the manufacturing and storage areas and by delivering better quality products at a reasonable time, it saves time & cost. Owing to such high-performance benefits, various countries are employing industrial robots to improve their productivity in the food & beverage sector. For instance, according to the World Robotics Industrial Robots report by International Robotic Federation, robotics installation in UK’s food & beverage sector stood at 304 units which showed an increase of 96.1% in comparison to the 155 units installed in 2019.

Based on type, the industrial robots for the food & beverage industry are segmented as articulated robots, cartesian robots, SCARA robots, collaborative robots, and others. The collaborative robot segment is expected to grow at a relatively higher rate during the forecast period of the industrial robots food & beverage industry market. Collaborative robots or COBOTS are easily programmable which enables food & beverage manufacturers to use them in a diverse range of products. Owing to their small size and simple programming, collaborative robots are majorly used in the pick & place, packaging, and palletizing applications during food & beverage production.

The growing technological innovations and developments have increased the scale of industrial automation, thereby creating demand for modern machinery in manufacturing activities. Likewise, the demand for robotics in the various manufacturing sectors such as food & beverage has also increased, thereby simultaneously increasing the installation rate. For instance, according to the World Robotics Industrial Robots report by International Robotic Federation, in 2020, industrial robot installation in the food sector globally stood at 12,000 units which showed an increase of 9% in comparison to 11,000 units installed globally in 2019. Various providers of industrial robots, realizing their growth potential in the food & beverage sector are undergoing strategic collaborations and product launches to increase their presence in the sector. For instance, Hyundai Robotics, in November 2020, entered into a strategic agreement with KFC at its restraint chain in Seoul, South Korea, and the agreement aims to automate the chicken food production of KFC through the usage of collaborative robots. Such technological development will stimulate the growth of industrial robots for the food & beverage industry market during the forecast period.

Recent developments:

  • KUKA Robotics, in February 2022, at Atlanta’s International Production and Processing Expo, introduced its portfolio of Hygienic Machines and Hygienic Oil robotics. The company launched its automated solutions especially for processing food products such as eggs, poultry, and meat where safety and cleanliness are given high priority.
  • In September 2021, Soft Robotics Inc. launched its SoftAl Solutions equipped with artificial intelligence software, proprietary 3D vision, and soft grasping features. The company’s product launch of such advanced robotics will increase the scale of automation of the food supply chain.
  • In February 2021, ABB extended its collaborative robot portfolio by launching two new cobots namely GoFa and SWIFTI which provide higher payload speed and will improve the company’s image in major sectors such as food & beverage by increasing the scale of automation in packaging, palletizing and processing.

Covid-19 Impact on the Industrial Robots For Food & Beverage Industry Market

COVID-19 restrictions shut down the activities of various manufacturing sectors including food & beverage. The shutting down of various plants and factories was leading led to a decrease in the production scale thereby, making the food supply vulnerable. For instance, JBS USA Holdings Inc, in April 2020m closed its beef production and processing facility in Greeley, Colo due to the coronavirus pandemic. Furthermore, National Beef Packaging Co LLC announced it to close its plants in Tama, Iowa in April 2020. Owing to such plant closures, the market demand for robots in the food & beverage sector also declined which hampered its market growth. However, owing to the pandemic's growing risk, various rules and regulations regarding hygiene, safety, and cleanliness were implemented which will create demand for robotics in the food & beverage sector as they are a much more efficient solution for various and food & beverage applications in comparison to traditional labors.
