Robotics can automate areas of a packaging business that would otherwise be un-automatable. This report identifies which types of robots packaging companies should be investing in and how robots can help resolve the major challenges facing the packaging industry. It also identifies the top adopters and vendors of robotics in the packaging sector.

Robotics is the branch of technology that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots. Innovations in robotics enable more areas of the packaging industry to be automated. For example, the assembly of packaging products such as boxes, cartons, and cans typically can be (and historically has been) automated using non-autonomous machines that execute a set of pre-determined motions and tasks. Robots can automate these and more complicated tasks, such as equipment maintenance and warehousing, because they can sense the environment in which they operate and react.


  • Caged industrial robots, industrial co-bots, inspection, cleaning, and maintenance robots, and logistics robots are the types of robot with the most relevance to the packaging sector.
  • Robots can be expensive investments for packaging companies. To maximize efficiencies, robots need to be integrated throughout packaging lines, and multiple cells must be able to communicate with each other for optimized coordination.
  • The robotics industry was worth $45.3 billion in 2020. By 2030, it will have grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 29% to $568.1 billion, according to publisher forecasts.
