Autonomous Mobile Robot Market Size

Autonomous Mobile Robot Market size crossed USD 2 billion in 2022 and is set to depict over 15% CAGR through 2023-2032, driven by the rising automation of manufacturing and other industrial operations.


Autonomous Mobile Robot Market

With the rapid industrial revolution, automation has emerged as a viable solution for businesses to achieve high efficiencies, improve productivity, and reduce costs. As a result, autonomous mobile robot architecture is gaining momentum in manufacturing and other industrial applications, mainly due to the skills gap. The integration of sensors and AI tech in robots enables obstacle detection and automated path finding, ensuring effective material delivery in manufacturing facilities. The reliance on robots to lower labor costs and manage supply chains will therefore contribute to the growth of autonomous mobile robot software developers.

The advent of Industry 4.0 has influenced industries to deploy automated solutions for picking, material handling, and sorting applications. A fully autonomous mobile robot utilizes advanced sensors and processors to observe nearby environments and take autonomous action using AI- and ML-based algorithms. The technological advancement will generate lucrative prospects for autonomous mobile robot manufacturers. However, AMR setup involves the development of programming, integration, maps, and other accessories. The product is also integrated with processors, sensors, locomotion mechanisms, gyroscopes, and other high-cost components, limiting industry growth to some extent.

Autonomous Mobile Robot Market Analysis

Global Autonomous Mobile Robot Market Revenue Share By Type

Autonomous mobile robot market value from the delivery & material handling robot segment will cross USD 4.5 billion by 2032, given the high investment in warehouse centers. For instance, in March 2023, Maersk established a warehouse in Chile and Peru to expand its business footprint in Latin America. Such initiatives will influence shipping companies to develop autonomous robots to navigate complex warehouse environments and efficiently transport goods. Furthermore, despite the economic slowdown, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a surge in e-commerce, bolstering AMRs sales for delivery and material handling applications.

Based on the end-use, the autonomous mobile robot market size from the manufacturing segment reached over 15,000 units in 2022. The rising awareness about the effectiveness of autonomous robots in material handling, motoring, and inventory management is a key factor augmenting product demand in the manufacturing sector. These robots can also enhance manufacturing efficiency, improve worker safety, and curb costs, thus reducing time-consuming, repetitive, and dangerous tasks. Moreover, the manufacturing sector continues to bounce back from the COVID-19-induced crises, further amplifying product consumption over the estimated timeline.

Global Autonomous Mobile Robot Market By Region

North American autonomous mobile robot market size is set to surpass USD 2.5 billion by 2032, as a result of the introduction of innovative mobile robot models. For instance, in March 2022, Oceaneering International announced a complete revamp of its autonomous mobile robotics portfolio and the launch of three mobile robots in North America. Such initiatives, alongside the rapid implementation of advanced robots for logistics applications, will accelerate the production of AMRs for material handling and other uses in the region.

Initiatives such as these will enable the company to establish a strong footprint in the global industry.

Impact of global inflation of autonomous mobile robot industry trends

The rise in the inflation rate has greatly impacted industry verticals including e-commerce. Compulsory price hikes undermine the strong bonds online retailers have created to maintain customer loyalty. Furthermore, promotions and discount campaigns have lost their effectiveness and visibility with the increasing burden of inflation. These factors may limit the use of robots for supply chain and logistics applications and in turn, hinder autonomous mobile robot industry growth to a certain extent.
