Analyst Review

Warehouse management is critical to any logistics system and is an essential part of supply chain management. Robotics is a technology that designs, constructs, develops, and operates robots & its automation. Integration of warehouse and robotics technology has helped ensure that there is accuracy and automation while increasing the warehouse storage space and operation efficiency.

The strategic move of takeover of Kiva robotics by Amazon.com, Inc. has been a game changer for warehouse robotics. The move of Amazon.com to stop selling warehouse robots to other customers except itself has forced customers to start their own ventures, which brought players such as Fetch Robotics, Locus Robotics, and others in the industry.

The key factor in the growth of warehouse robotics is the increased demand for automation due to prevailing competition in e-commerce. Success in e-commerce is dependent on those who deliver the right quality in the right place at the right time and can meet the expectations of their customers. The rise of e-commerce and faster delivery times pressure the supply chain and logistics companies to get orders out the door as the earliest.

Warehouse robotics has reduced the time and effort required to scan and update stock inventory, pack parcels, arrange items on shelves, and complete other related tasks in a short span of time. The increasing collaboration of warehouse robotics with e-commerce drives the growth of the global warehouse robotics market.
