WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study Robots: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2014 to 2020. The 2014 study has 546 pages, 235 tables and figures. Worldwide industrial logistics robotics markets are increasingly diversified, poised to achieve significant growth in every industry segment. As production of goods and services embrace automated process, logistics robots are being used to adapt conveyor belts, end of the line tasks, and loading to a flexible systems approach. Automated process depends on introduction of new logistics capability. The robots are taking over, they have remote controls to enable a device to make it do whatever the user wants it to do.

Industrial logistics robotics projects are ongoing worldwide with an emphasis on end to end process automation. The key to industrial robots implementation is keeping costs down. Adapting existing tools, implementing commercial mechanisms, and loading and unloading pallets is emerging as the best way to build viable robots. High value projects are a target of robotic development.

Industrial logistics robots are used to improve the delivery of consistent quality materials management and to implement efficiency in managing food production. Robots are set to bring a new industrial revolution more important than anything seen before.

Industrial robots perform repetitive tasks efficiently, they do not eat, they do not make mistakes, they do not get tired, they do what they are told, they work 24 hours per day 7 days a week. Manufacturing plants are frequently long aisles of nothing but robots, no human in sight.

Beyond industrial logistics robots that repeat actions, more intelligent robots are loaded with sensors, able to automate process using processors and cameras to control action. Use of microprocessors provides a measure of intelligent control over the activity of the robot based on input from the sensors and the cameras.

Industrial automation works with companies of all sizes. It works in all industries and for any application. Industrial automation works from concept to installation. The aim is to ensure innovative solutions. The aim is to meet needs and provide flexibility to accommodate expanding needs.

Innovation allows maximizing investment in automated solutions. By allowing customers to retool product lines, savings can be achieved. Current investment is protected. New systems are implemented without having to discard existing equipment and repurchase capital equipment.

The logistics robotics industry had a fast start in 2014. Growth is fueled by strong demand from manufacturing companies in all sectors for complete end to end automation of process. Industrial automation works with companies of all sizes. It works in all industries and for any application. Industrial automation works with from concept to installation. The aim is to ensure innovative end to end solutions. The aim is to meet needs and provide flexibility to accommodate expanding needs.

Quality is a cornerstone of industrial robotic systems. Vendors have assembled teams of experienced engineers and technicians. The aim is to design, build, program, and maintain the highest-quality robotic systems. The teams consistently work to find the right automation solution for every application. Most systems have some customization.

Longevity in the industry, along with employee combined years of experience, provide clients with the ability to create packaging and palletizing systems. Projects are managed with quality. Logistics solutions depend on expertise in end-of-line automation.

In a complex industry where know-how is everything,

  • The electronic trade fair for material handling, warehousing, intralogistics, conveyors, lifts, cranes, storage and material flow.
  • Industrial Logistics Material Handling Robots Material handling, warehousing, intralogistics, industrial cranes, lifts, cranes, storage and material flow are aspects of robotic logistic market sectors.

Robots in general are poised to change every aspect of modern life. Robots are poised to change everything, what we eat, how we eat it, what we drive, how we drive it, what we manufacture, how we manufacture it, and the military, how we defend ourselves.

Logistics robot technology is based on platforms that leverage sensors, controllers, software modules, cameras, visualization, and locomotors deploying machines for control of all repeatable process. Industrialization is after all the repetition of some task to create process. Robots take this a step further to create automation of process with the ability to move the units.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the WinterGreen Research team that prepared the study, “The opportunity to participate in industrial logistics robotic markets is compelling for every endeavor that involves moving any parts. This new market is evolving as new automated process based on breakthroughs and innovation in technology is expressed in robotic platforms. Grippers, microprocessor technology, optics, cameras, nanotechnology, new materials, thin film batteries, and sensors are among the technologies being put to use in innovative ways in robots. The ability to apply any technology from any company is phenomenal.”

Consideration of Industrial Logistics Robot Market Forecasts indicates that markets at $16 billion will reach $31.3 billion by 2020. Growth comes as every industry achieves efficiency by automating logistics process robotically. Robots are unique because they can perform multiple steps without human intervention and they can adapt to different conditions and different types of devices to be manipulated. The sensors and the cameras in the robots make them flexible.
