Global Delivery Robot Market Size Worth $ 356.6 Million by 2027 | CAGR 17.7%

The Global Delivery Robot market has been fueled by the increased demand for automation across numerous industries, as well as improvements in technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, 5G technology, and Machine Learning. Furthermore, there is a spike in the deployment of robots for domestic functions, such as assisting in retail stores, delivering room service, and so on. The number of players in the Delivery Robot industry's supply chain has increased as a result of many firms seeking to build up business strategies and policies.

In the forecast period 2021-2027, the worldwide delivery robot market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.7% in terms of value and 19.6% in terms of volume. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant influence on the delivery robot market. The pandemic hastens the acceptance of delivery robots and their adaption to new niches. Contactless delivery has arisen as a new business model for enterprises dealing with outdoor delivery robots, particularly in the healthcare and e-commerce sectors.

As the cost of labor rises, technology becomes more accessible, hastening the move to automation. As a result, the high cost of labor will propel the delivery robot market forward. Also, these robots also assist with domestic duties. Robots relieve people of the need to undertake hazardous and exhausting duties, as well as take care of certain simple – and even complex – repetitive activities, which they can do better than humans. By 2023, Oxford University researchers believe that 92% of salespeople will be replaced by machines. Moreover, retailers can benefit from the rise of robots by increasing productivity, cutting costs, improving consumer experiences, and increasing profitability. These factors help the market to move forward and expand. However, certain blockheads which impede the market growth are a high initial investment to develop delivery robots, climatic uncertainties, and the potential loss of jobs due to deployment of automation.

The four-wheel robot segment among different types dominated the global delivery robot market share with around 47% share in 2020. Four-wheel robots can fit in limited places of buildings, elevators, restaurants, and other crowded and narrow places, which is credited with its large market share and astounding growth rate. Four-wheel robots also perform well in outdoor environments, such as congested roadways, and can transport things efficiently while navigating traffic. During the projected period 2021-2027, the autonomous category of delivery robots is estimated to increase at the fastest rate, with a CAGR of 18%. Some companies are still deploying the remote-control operating approach to command delivery robots, together with human help, to test the viability of services.

The regional analysis of the global delivery robots market included the regions Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. By the end of 2027, APAC will have acquired the majority of the market share, which will be over 66%, up from only 6% in 2020. The APAC region's major shift in the market holding can be linked to China and Japan's active participation in the robots’ sector, with China developing the most advanced robots with ease of implementation in numerous industrial verticals around the world.

In 2019, Aethon expanded a line of autonomous mobile robots with two specialty products for the hospitality market. Furthermore, the company grew its customer base with 21 sites going live on their logistics platform which automates and manages the internal supply chain logistics of hospitals. In addition, another company, Keenon has collaborations with Burger King in China, the Haidilao hot pot restaurant chain, and recently announced a new contactless restaurant with Chinese delivery service Meituan Dianping.
