Why AMRs Will Play a Key Role in the Workforce During the Pandemic - and After It’s Over

Autonomous mobile robots to handle payloads up to 1500 kg and offered with different attachments for different application needs.

While 2020 has been an incredibly challenging year for many industries, it’s been a great year for AMRs! The mobile robot industry has skyrocketed, with estimates of the revenues growing 24% by the end of the year. It’s estimated that 2021 will lead to even greater growth, more than doubling the increase that 2020 brought. Let’s take a look at the factors behind this major increase in sales and how the COVID-19 pandemic has played a role.
