We have compiled a list of 7 biggest trends and predictions for the robotic industry in 2022
Robotic process automation
RPA, as the name implies, is a popular solution for companies that deal with all sorts of repeated work. Hospitals are a wonderful example of a business that deals with manual invoicing, appointment scheduling, and inventory management – all of which may be readily automated with RPA.
Robotics as a service (Raas)
Thanks to ever-growing trend of everything-as-a-service models, small firms are now being enabled and empowered to adopt robos and RPA in the form of subscription-based Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) as well as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models — such as Meili FMS.
Autonomous mobile robots
The demand for AMRs has been growing at extraordinary rates, from €0.88 billion in 2017 to an expected €6.17 billion in 2022, driven by e-commerce development, labour constraints, increasing automation, and mass personalization of items. In fact, AMRs are predicted to begin functioning more like IoT hubs in the near future, with mobile robot software adding another €2.64 billion to the AMR market value.
Multi-purpose robots & cobots
Retail automation is seeing significant growth, too, with retailers being expected to add multi-purpose robots to work alongside their team — and thus referred to cobots in order to carry out multiple tasks at once and thereby making it easier for them to meet the ever-growing customer expectations and shopping demands. At the same time, cobots are permanently taking over certain jobs across different industries to improve workplace safety and efficiency.
Increased awareness of the lack of interoperability
With the growing adoption of robots across industries, there is a greater demand for a solution that tackles the industry’s lack of interoperability:
“Interoperability is a factor that could be easily overlooked by many robot operators. It allows robots to communicate with each other and other systems to enable an efficient and safe working environment. If not tackled, it can be a crippling pain point that halts the productivity of the facility — or even grinding it to a halt as some, if not all, robots start obstructing or interfering with each other.” – Aldus von der Burg, CEO, Meili Robots
Delivery robots on the rise
The market for delivery robots is predicted to increase from €188 million in 2021 to almost €850 million by 2026, with a 35.1 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) throughout the forecast period. Reduced last-mile delivery costs, increasing venture funding, and rising demand for delivery robots in the retail and food and beverage industries are driving market expansion.
Increased robotics demand & abilities
Finally, as robots become smarter every day as a result of advances in technologies like Machine Learning, AI, and the Internet of Things, more and more industries that have adopted robots are becoming smarter as well – think warehouses, distribution centres, and manufacturing facilities. Companies will realise significant improvements in terms of efficiency, accuracy, and operational consistency as procedures become increasingly automated.
