The delivery robots market is anticipated to show steady growth during the forecast period.

Delivery robots are to transport goods from one location to another without requiring human intervention. These robots use sensors, cameras, and navigation technology to navigate their surroundings to safely deliver packages or items. They are used in a variety of industries, including logistics, hospitality, medical and healthcare, and e-commerce, to deliver packages while eliminating the need for convenient human delivery personnel. The establishment of new logistic centers and technological advancements in delivery robots are the major driving forces behind the delivery robots market growth.

Market Drivers

  • The establishment of logistic centers bolsters the delivery robots market growth.

Delivery robots are used in logistics centers to increase efficiency and speed up delivery operations. Integrating these robots with logistical software systems allows for seamless inventory tracking and management.  It can also provide real-time updates on the location and status of delivered items, which improves supply chain control and coordination. These advanced capabilities make it an ideal solution for logistic centers to adopt delivery robots. Hence, the establishment of new logistic centers accelerated the delivery robots market growth. For instance, in December 2023, Axcelis Technologies announced the official launch of its new Axcelis Logistics Center in Beverly, Massachusetts. It is a cutting-edge facility that allows Axcelis to optimize its logistics and warehouse operations.

  • Technological advancement drives the delivery robots market growth.

Technological advancements in delivery robots have improved their navigation, obstacle detection, and overall performance, resulting in greater dependability and efficiency. Additionally, the integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning advancements have greatly enhanced delivery robot capabilities. Such advancement coupled with growing industrial automation and new launches has increased their adoption in numerous sectors thereby pushing the market growth upwards. For instance, in January 2022, Ottonomy introduced the Ottobots, a collection of fully autonomous delivery robots for food and retail. This is the first distinct robotic delivery of food, beverage, and lifestyle products in an airport environment.

  • Booming e-commerce activities accelerated the delivery robots market growth.

The surge in e-commerce has led to a rise in online orders, and traditional delivery methods often struggle to keep up with this escalating demand. Delivery robots provide a cost-effective and faster delivery option and are designed to navigate sidewalks, crosswalks, and roads to deliver orders directly to customers' doorsteps.  They can operate 24x7 without the constraints of human drivers, allowing for quick and on-time deliveries. Thus, e-commerce companies adopt advanced delivery robots to fulfill the market demand which is anticipated to positively impact the market growth.

North America is expected to grow significantly.

North America is projected to account for a considerable share of the delivery robots market due to the establishment of new distribution facilities in the region. For instance, in July 2023, The Kraft Heinz Company announced a $400 million investment to construct one of the largest automated CPG distribution centers in North America. Additionally, in November 2023, Innomar Strategies announced the official launch of a new third-party logistics (3PL) center in Halton Hills, Ontario with the 92,000-square-foot GMP-compliant facility which will allow Innomar to provide improved logistics storage, including quality assurance and importation services. Moreover, in June 2023, GEODIS, a global leader in transportation and logistics, announced the establishment of a new multi-user warehouse and distribution center in Mexico City.

Market Restraints

  • Safety concerns will restrain the delivery robots market growth.

The safe operation of delivery robots is critical as they must navigate crowded streets and sidewalks while interacting with pedestrians and vehicles. Accidents or mishaps involving delivery robots can raise safety concerns and result in potential liabilities. This may limit the adoption of delivery robots which may hinder the market growth.

Market Development

  • September 2023- Relay Robotics unveiled RelayRx its latest hospital robot which encounters twice the capacity (10 gallons, 41 liters) of previous models and a larger 8-inch touchscreen. The RelayRx robot can navigate independently throughout a hospital, connecting departments including the pharmacy and blood bank to patient rooms in a median of 7 minutes.
  • June 2023- Autonomous delivery service providers Starship Technologies announced a new partnership with Bolt which will allow thousands of robots to deliver Bolt Food across multiple countries.

Company Products

  • DINERBOT T6- Keenon Robotics offers DINERBOT T6 with multiple delivery modes, such as multi-point delivery and cruising delivery mode, which can deliver dishes to four tables at once and make it easy for customers to take dishes. The delivery robots plan routes and position themselves more accurately. It features a lighter weight of 52kg and a slim body that can run more flexibly.
  • PuduBot 2- PuduBot 2, is the latest upgraded delivery robot from Pudu Robotics which is dedicated to achieving intelligent deliveries in all scenarios, promoting the use of service robots, and accelerating overall robot development by improving performance, extendability, adaptability, and reliability. It consists of 360° sensing, with environmental features in full view, and supports large scene mapping of up to 40,000-meter square which improves mobility in semi-outdoor settings.
  • HR AGV Multi-Sensing Autonomous Vehicle- HR is a new generation of multi-sensing autonomous vehicles from Han's Robot designed for indoor intralogistics tasks. It is capable of transporting items autonomously and navigating freely in its environment. This robot also has obstacle avoidance radar, which can operate continuously and safely without interruption. Furthermore, it includes an autonomous navigation system and dispatching software, allowing multiple HR to serve at the same time, keeping production running, and allowing for flexible manipulation.
