eCommerce Fulfillment and Robotics: From the "Point of Activity" to "a Place of Innovation"

By: Remy GlaisnerResearch Director, Sampath Kumar VenkataswamyResearch Manager

On-line Presentation


This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation offers a snapshot of how logistics robotics are operating in today's facilities, explores the fundamental value of robotics to supply chain managers, shares how early adopters have benefited, and then explains how managers can best determine if a robotics solution is a right fit for your operations.

As the challenges of ecommerce fulfillment continue to mount, and labor is even more difficult to find and retain, mobile, unit handling, and piece-picking robotics are increasingly making their way inside warehouse/DC operations around the United States — and there's a good chance they're headed your way.

There's little doubt that the confluence of time-consuming material moves, macroeconomic factors creating labor scarcity, and rapidly advancing robotics technology are certain to fuel the market for years to come. In fact, IDC forecasts a 22.4% compound annual growth rate for the five-year period (2019 to 2023) for pick and pack robotics, culminating in more than $9 billion in spending by 2023.
