Growing E-Commerce Sector is Fueling the Growth of the Global Packaging Robots Market:

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. In addition, APAC leads the global e-commerce market, where China accounts for a significant percentage of the regional market growth. As per the International Trade Administration, China is the largest e-commerce market across the world, generating 50% of the world’s transactions. In 2021, the country generated USD 1.5 trillion in revenue through the e-commerce sector, becoming the largest e-commerce market in the world. Also, Europe is a key region supporting e-commerce growth. According to Eurostat, in 2022, 91% of people aged 16–74 years in the European Union (EU) countries used the internet, of which 75% ordered goods or services online. Also, the proportion of e-shoppers grew to 75% in 2022 from 55% in 2012, an increase of 20% over the last decade. Many shoppers in Europe prefer online shopping platforms such as Amazon, Target, and Walmart, which majorly drives the growth of the e-commerce sector in Europe. The growing demand for online shopping is pushing companies to perform faster picking and placement operations, which is raising the demand for packaging robots. 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. This high growth of the e-commerce industry is raising the need for picking and packaging robots, fueling the market growth.

The growing automation and emerging robotic technology are the major factors raising the demand for packaging robots worldwide. Europe is witnessing the growing adoption of automation in various industries. In Europe, Germany is a highly automated economy. The country had around 230,000 industrial robots in 2020, out of which the manufacturing facilities the country installed 22,300 new industrial robots in 2020 alone. According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), the country accounted for 33% of overall robot inventory in the region. The usage of robots in manufacturing facilities across Germany accounts for more than three times as compared to Italy, which has 78,200 industrial robots. Similarly, in 2020, France had around 44,800 industrial robots, whereas the UK accounted for 23,000 industrial robots. Thus, the growing awareness related to the benefits of using robots in parallel to humans in the manufacturing industry is easing manufacturing operations and increasing the production volume. Thus, the growing adoption of robots across various manufacturing facilities is fueling the growth of the packaging robots market growth in Europe.

Furthermore, the digital industrial revolution, i.e. Industry 4.0 is helping to increase flexibility in manufacturing, mass customization, increased speed, better quality, and improved productivity in factories. Because of this, automobiles, food & beverage, retail, electronics, and other sectors are installing industrial robots to increase productivity. Also, in 2021, in Italy, out of the total industrial robots installed, around 10% contributed in the packaging industry. Thus, the rising adoption of robots in the manufacturing and packaging process is boosting the market growth in the forecasted period.
