Increasing Adoption of Automation in Food & Beverage Sector is Driving the Industrial Automation Market

Automation in food and beverage production involves strategic technology integrations in inspection, packaging, and storage. In the last few years, food and beverage organizations have streamlined production processes using delta robots, automated guided vehicles, and robotic arms to meet regulatory food safety and quality standards while lowering labor costs across production locations. The repetitious and precise packing of consumer-packed food and beverages is difficult for humans. This is increasing the use of robotic systems for primary and secondary packaging and palletizing. Industry demand for vision-guided robots is rising due to their effectiveness in repetitive operations including bottle handling, bin picking, and tray loading. Automation in the food and beverage business has been driven by benefits such as greater transparency, productivity, and flexibility. These factors have prompted food and beverage businesses to substantially invest in integration of automated technology across their manufacturing facilities.
