Food Robotics Market Dynamics
- Rising adoption of digitization in food industry
Digitalization optimizes business processes by utilising new digital technologies such as big data analytics, IT/OT convergence, digital twin, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, and automation technologies. IoT and AI are assisting businesses in achieving high levels of food safety, improving traceability, reducing waste, and lowering costs and risks at various stages of food processing and packaging. Digitalization has emerged as a critical enabler for automation in recent years, with AI boosting operational productivity by increasing workforce productivity. Various regulations govern the use of digitalization in the food and beverage industry.
- Growing demand in various applications
Due to their inherent advantages, such as quality control, durability, hygiene, and preservation, these systems are widely used in various applications, including bakery and confectionery, meat, seafood, and poultry, dairy, and grains. The product is becoming more widely used in end-use industries, particularly in Asia Pacific, where rising domestic manufacturing and consumer income levels are driving innovation in this sector.
To improve global food security, one must increase pollution control measures and reduce food losses. Standard and advanced robotics can easily achieve these solutions. Over the forecast period, this is expected to create opportunities for equipment manufacturers.
The global food robotics market faces significant market challenges due to a lack of skilled labour. Lockdowns enacted as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak have caused major market constraint by shutting down businesses throughout economies. Incorporating IoT Technology in the food processing space, such as BAADER revamping its Food Robotics into modern digital solutions to create an automated food chain, is expected to positively drive the market in the coming years.

COVID-19 Impact on Food Robotics Market
Due to the infection, several countries imposed strict lockdowns, resulting in the shutdown of F&B processing plants and the disruption of the F&B supply chain for a limited time. The F&B supply chain has been impacted by a lack of F&B products and critical supplies, panic buying by consumers around the world, supply chain disruptions owing to travel restrictions, and labour shortages. During the first and second quarters of 2020, major robot manufacturing companies reported a loss in revenue due to lower sales caused by an economic slowdown induced by lockdown and quarantine restrictions enforced by governments around the world, as well as a temporary drop in demand for automation.
