“Mobile robots in the warehouse robotics market expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”
The market for mobile robots is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2017 and 2022. Workers travel throughout the warehouse to pick the desired item for order processing. They are prone to making errors while picking and placing the items from respective shelves. Mobile robots are highly capable in the performing the pick and place and transportation of items with negligible errors compared to human workers. Hence, companies are increasingly using mobile robotics to increase the efficiency of their warehouse leading to a high growth rate of the mobile robots market.

“E-commerce to hold the largest share of the overall warehouse robotics market in 2017”
The e-commerce industry is expected to hold the largest share of the overall warehouse robotics market in 2017. The e-commerce industry has been one of the major contributors to the growth of the warehouse robotics market. Rapidly changing customer demands, rise in online shopping, increasing demand for shorter delivery times, and fierce competition among online retailing companies has increased the demand for automated fulfillment centers.

“APAC to be the fastest-growing market for warehouse robotics during the forecast period”
The warehouse robotics market in Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to grow at a high rate between 2017 and 2022. Increasing trend of online retail shopping, growing number of startup companies developing mobile robots in India and China, and high attrition rate of warehouse workers are some of the key factors driving the growth of the warehouse robotics market in APAC.
