Robots are the machines which automate the tasks that are usually carried out by humans. Initially, there were very few robots that were introduced into the manufacturing sector for performing some of the repetitive manufacturing operations. Gradually, other industries realized its potential across various applications that help the humans to save time and energy. However, the emergence of artificial intelligence into robots has revolutionized the robotics industry. Robots are now able to work along with human beings and have decision-making capabilities. In addition, the massive benefits of robots have paved the way for their entrance into various industries including banking, healthcare, retail, and restaurants, among others. According to International Federation of Robotics (IFR), the global sales of industrial robots increased by 16% to 294,312 units, in 2016 as compared to the previous year. Similarly, logistics and warehouse are one of the fastest-growing industries that have seen the impact of robots on various applications. The electrical and electronics, as well as automotive industry, are the main driving forces behind the growth of the logistics and warehouse robot market. 

Logistics and warehouse sector involves the movement of goods from one place to another due to which it supports the technological advancements taking place in the material movement operations. Thus, it has been witnessing a high degree of automation to reduce delivery times and streamline operations in the warehouse. This has resulted in a number of developments in the warehouse and logistics robots by various leading manufacturers.  The sector is poised to witness high growth in the near future as the technology becomes affordable due to decreasing robot cost and thus, will be able to cater to a broad category of customers. The logistics and warehouse robots are the widely used; however, slowly it is witnessing high adoption in developing as well as developed countries that were initially reluctant due to belief in conservationism.

Robots are the machines which automate the tasks that are usually carried out by humans. Initially, there were very few robots that were introduced into the manufacturing sector for performing some of the repetitive manufacturing operations. Gradually, other industries realized its potential across various applications that help the humans to save time and energy. However, the emergence of artificial intelligence into robots has revolutionized the robotics industry. Robots are now able to work along with human beings and have decision-making capabilities. In addition, the massive benefits of robots have paved the way for their entrance into various industries including banking, healthcare, retail, and restaurants, among others. According to International Federation of Robotics (IFR), the global sales of industrial robots increased by 16% to 294,312 units, in 2016 as compared to the previous year. Similarly, logistics and warehouse are one of the fastest-growing industries that have seen the impact of robots on various applications. The electrical and electronics, as well as automotive industry, are the main driving forces behind the growth of the logistics and warehouse robot market. 

Logistics and warehouse sector involves the movement of goods from one place to another due to which it supports the technological advancements taking place in the material movement operations. Thus, it has been witnessing a high degree of automation to reduce delivery times and streamline operations in the warehouse. This has resulted in a number of developments in the warehouse and logistics robots by various leading manufacturers.  The sector is poised to witness high growth in the near future as the technology becomes affordable due to decreasing robot cost and thus, will be able to cater to a broad category of customers. The logistics and warehouse robots are the widely used; however, slowly it is witnessing high adoption in developing as well as developed countries that were initially reluctant due to belief in conservationism.
