Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, most businesses are closed, operations at all various businesses, warehouses, and production facilities are suspended. To control the spread of the virus, the government has enacted strict laws such as maintaining social isolation, closing down businesses, and setting up transportation, supply chains, and so on. India is heavily affected and the market for Wearhouse robotics is also affected by the epidemic. Even in this epidemic, robots and automation are very effective in controlling the situation. In addition, they desperately want a home delivery that plays a key role in this situation. However, COVID brings new opportunities in the market for warehouse robotics.


Based on Type, the warehouse robotics market is segmented into Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR), Collaborative Robots, Cylindrical and SCARA Robots, Articulated Robots, Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) and Others.

The market for warehouse robotics AMR type is expected to dominate and show the highest CAGR at the time of forecasting. The growing popularity of e-commerce shopping platforms and the growing need to improve the efficiency of warehouses have led companies to focus on automation. In addition, increased accessibility and return on investment (ROI) are expected to further market growth. Flexibility and efficiency have become key drivers in the e-commerce fulfillment market as retailers and transport companies struggle to cope with changing needs, seasonal peaks, and rising delivery expectations. Mobile robot systems offer high performance flexibility. In addition, advances in artificial intelligence, in-depth learning, and robotics are enhancing their skills.

Based on payload capacity, the warehouse robotics market is segmented into <10 kg, 11 kg to 80 kg, 81 kg to 400 kg, 401 kg to 900 kg and >900 kg.

The payload capacity of less than 10 kg has registered a large revenue share of more than 40% in 2021 and is estimated to ensure its governance from 2022 to 2028. This is because robots with low payloads can carry most of the items in a standard catering facility for various industries used in the end. Robots with a payload capacity of 400 kg and above are rarely used by operators, which is why the growth rate of sections 401 kg to 900 kg, and payloads of more than 900 kg are expected to remain lasser for years to come. In particular, operators of much-needed industries such as automotive and consumer electronics invest in robots with 11 kg to 80 kg payload capacity.

Based on Industry, the warehouse robotics market is segmented into E-Commerce, Food & Beverage, Electrical & Electronics, Pharmaceutical, Metal & Machinery, Automotive, Chemical, Rubber, And Plastics and Others. E-commerce trends have an impact on the logistics, manufacturing, and transportation industries, indicating that it is becoming increasingly important for these industries to develop and adopt automated solutions. The growing demand for fast order delivery to customers in an accurate and unambiguous manner, the growing competition in the e-commerce industry, and the rapid rise in online shopping are key factors that are expected to drive the growth of the e-commerce warehouse robotics market industry.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.

The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
