Food Robotics Market to be Worth $2.8 Billion by 2031

Food Robotics Market Size, Share, Forecast, & Trends Analysis by Type (Articulated Robots [SCARA, Six-axis Robots], Delta & Parallel, Collaborative, Cartesian, Cylindrical, Portal), Payload, Application, End Use - Global Forecast to 2031


Meticulous Research®—a leading global market research company, published a research report titled, ‘Food Robotics Market Size, Share, Forecast, & Trends Analysis by Type (Articulated Robots [SCARA, Six-axis Robots], Delta & Parallel, Collaborative, Cartesian, Cylindrical, Portal), Payload, Application, End Use - Global Forecast to 2031.’

According to this latest publication from Meticulous Research®, the global food robotics market is projected to reach $2.8 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of 11.6% from 2024 to 2031. The growth of this market is driven by factors such as increasing food safety regulations, rising investments in robotics by food & beverage companies, increasing digitalization in the food & beverage sector, and a growing focus on efficient food packaging. Furthermore, the rising demand from emerging economies is expected to create market growth opportunities. However, the high installation costs may restrain market growth. Additionally, the low adoption of robotics among SMEs in the food & beverage sector is a significant challenge impeding the market’s growth.

The global food robotics market is segmented by type, payload, application, and end use. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market at the region/country level.

Based on type, the global food robotics market is broadly segmented into articulated robots, delta & parallel robots, collaborative robots, cartesian robots, cylindrical robots, and portal robots. In 2024, the articulated robots segment is expected to account for the largest share of over 37.8% of the food robotics market. The large market share of this segment can be attributed to the high load capacity and flexibility offered by these robots, growing emphasis on controlling food contamination, increasing use of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) equipped with articulated arms for inventory management in warehouses and distribution centers, and growing use of articulated robots in the food industry for pick and place operations, packaging applications, and sorting and inspecting food products.

However, the collaborative robots segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period of 2024–2031. This growth is driven by the growing use of cobots for packaging tasks such as picking and placing food items into containers or packaging trays, increasing use of cobot robots equipped with vision systems for quality inspection tasks, and the need to optimize inventory tracking and replenishment processes, improve productivity, and safety while supporting human workers in diverse tasks across food production, processing, and service operations.

Based on payload, the global food robotics market is broadly segmented into high, low, and medium payload. In 2024, the medium payload segment is expected to account for the largest share of over 47.2% of the food robotics market. This segment’s large market share can be attributed to advancements in medium payload robots designed for packaging, food handling, and pick-and-place applications, coupled with enhancements in gripping technology and the integration of vacuum assistance.

However, the low payload segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period of 2024–2031. The growth of this segment is driven by the rising adoption of low payload robots due to their compact design, enabling operation in confined workspaces and facilitating the automation of highly repetitive and tedious tasks. Moreover, these robots reduce cycle time and enhance overall productivity.

Based on application, the global food robotics market is broadly segmented into palletizing & depalletizing, packaging & repacking, pick & place, cutting & slicing, grading & sorting, butchery, quality inspection, and other applications. In 2024, the palletizing & depalletizing segment is expected to account for the largest share of over 28.2% of the food robotics market. This segment’s large market share can be attributed to the growing use of robots for loading & unloading boxes, bags, cases, bottles, cartons, and other items to or from pallets. These robots improve throughput, enhance quality, provide better working conditions, and improve operational efficiency.

However, the packaging & repacking segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period of 2024–2031. This growth is driven by the widespread adoption of packaging & repacking robots to accelerate cycle times and enhance productivity, the increasing demand for robots to optimize packaging operations and boost overall operational efficiency, and the rising popularity of convenience and ready-to-eat packaged foods. Additionally, stringent regulations pertaining to food safety and hygiene are driving manufacturers to embrace automated packaging processes to minimize human contact and mitigate the risk of contamination.

Based on end use, the global food robotics market is broadly segmented into dairy, beverages, bakery & confectionery, meat, poultry, and seafood, fruits and vegetables, oil & fats, and other end uses. In 2024, the dairy segment is expected to account for the largest share of over 27.3% of the food robotics market. The large market share of this segment can be attributed to the growing need to improve quality and productivity and reduce production costs, the rising demand for high-quality dairy products, and various government initiatives to promote the dairy sector. The implementation of robots in the dairy processing industry provides safety, quality, and profitability by optimizing process monitoring and control. Robots help in efficiently handling and managing complex repetitive tasks such as treating & manufacturing raw milk and filling & packaging of milk and milk-based products such as butter, ice cream, yogurt, cheese, and milk powder.

However, the beverages segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period of 2024–2031. This growth is driven by the growing need to maintain quality, consistency, and hygiene and optimize production processes. Additionally, the rising demand for enhanced precision and safety in production operations in the beverage sector has prompted several robotic companies to develop innovative solutions aimed at minimizing waste, optimizing profitability, and enhancing the safety standards of the food supply chain. Robots offer enhanced control over beverage quality through precise monitoring, ensuring consistent adherence to performance parameters.

Based on geography, the global Food Robotics market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2024, Asia-Pacific is expected to account for the largest share of 48.2% of the global food robotics market, followed by North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific’s significant market share can be attributed to the growing awareness regarding food hygiene and safety, the increasing demand for automated solutions to enhance efficiency and productivity in food manufacturing and packaging processes, the significant advances in technology, including AI, IoT, and robotics, stringent food safety regulations, and the widespread adoption of autonomous robots to manage inventory, track stock levels, and optimize warehouse operations for food storage and distribution, and quality inspection of food products. Moreover, the market in Asia-Pacific is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
