This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Milking Robots Market is accounted for $2.33 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $7.14 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 17.3% during the forecast period. Automated milking equipment known as milking robots enables dairy farms to fully automate the milking procedure. Although commercial robots that can milk up to 80 cows are currently on the market, these systems are normally built to milk 60 cows. In the milk collection process, it is used to replace manual effort. Milking robots have cleaning and disinfection arms that cover the teats to lower the danger of infection. Additionally, cutting-edge solutions with monitoring systems that offer information on the health of each individual cow as well as their milk output are being created.

According to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the UN, the total number of cattle all over the world was 1.68 billion in 2018, and it is estimated to reach 2.0 billion by 2021.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing demand for dairy products

The rising number of dairy cows needed to meet the soaring demand for dairy products like butter, cheese, curd, and yoghurt around the world is largely responsible for the market need for milking robots. Furthermore, it gets harder to efficiently perform the milking procedure on dairy farms as the number of the herd grows. As a result, the market for milking robots and other mechanised milking systems is expanding as dairy farms' herd sizes grow.


Lack of standardization

The significant challenge encountered while milking animals with milking robots is the variation in behavioural patterns between individual animals. Due to behavioural variations among cows, it is challenging to milk every member of the herd consistently, which could reduce milk production. When a milking robot is installed, grazing dairies with access to pastures experience additional difficulties. One of the biggest difficulties farmers encounter when putting robotic milking systems into place is controlling the herd's movement into and out of the pasture for milking.


Technological advancements

The robots' operational workflow is performed and monitored by a variety of sensors and measurement tools. Furthermore, the robot equipped with the monitor sensor actively monitors the flow of milk throughout the whole milking operation. In order to aid in the early detection of mastitis, it also gathers trustworthy data in real-time while removing chemical chemicals. Reduced treatment time and herd health protection are two additional benefits. One initial aspect encouraging the expansion of this industry is the fusion of several technologies.


Inadequate training of cows at the beginning

The training provided to the cows at dairy farms has a significant impact on how well milking robots work and are useful. For greater effectiveness, cows must adapt to the systems. A significant concern that could hinder the market is inadequate training. To achieve quick and total adaption to the autonomous system, fresh cows must also be trained early. This is because a malfunction during milking activities could physically harm the herd and delicate sensors of the robot components, perhaps resulting in repair costs.

Covid-19 Impact

Due to COVID-19, businesses everywhere have suffered from revenue losses and supply chain disruptions as a result of plant closures and quarantine measures that have been put in place globally, limiting travel and business operations. The demand for service robots like milking robots has, however, only slightly increased as a result of the labour shortage in farms brought on by lockdowns.

The hardware segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The hardware segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to increasing adoption of milking robots, growing preference for automated hardware and systems. Technological advancements by key players to introduce innovative products, growing demand for dairy products and subsequent increase in the number of dairy cows globally are some of the major factors driving demand for milking robots hardware.

The automated milking rotary segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The automated milking rotary segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period as these machines not only facilitate the milking of large herds but are also flexible enough to operate in different farming practices, ranging from free stall and loose housing to pasture-based dairying. Automated milking rotaries have a number of advantages, including lower labour costs due to less reliance on physical labour and higher milk outputs through more frequent milking.

Region with Largest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to considerable presence of manufacturers. Players in the milking robots market are spending a lot of time and energy developing innovative and clever business plans to maintain their market leadership. The main reasons assisting in this market expansion are the increase in average herd size, the deployment of technical advancement, and the countries where centres of milk production are rising quickly.

Region with highest CAGR:

Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the widespread automation of dairy farms. Among the main drivers of market expansion are the rising trend of automation and the presence of numerous market participants. In addition, this area also has high labour costs. High use of robots technology is seen in this region as a means of mitigating or reducing the cost of labour.
