The Global Autonomous Delivery Robots market size was valued at USD $16.49 Million in 2020, USD $23.36 Million in 2021, forecasted to reach USD $33.1 Million in 2022, and is projected to reach USD $320.91 Million by 2030, and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 41.66% over the forecast period from 2020 to 2030.


Autonomous delivery robots function on electric motors, have a suite of cameras to enable maneuvering through the street or other locations and to identify obstacles enroute to its destination, have external sensors, a trunk for packages or cargo, hood and lock to prevent unauthorized access to the goods. The speed of travel, which is 6 Kilometers at max, does not come close to a human delivery made in a car or on a bike. However, delivery robots do not require any break between deliveries. The worlds first autonomous robot delivery service was launched by Starship Technologies in Milton Keynes in the UK in November 2018. Customers are required to pay a monthly fee of US$ 10 for app subscription. Once subscribed, the customer can order goods or items and have them delivered to them at their doorstep by delivery robot. Once the robots arrive at delivery destination, the customers use a code that was sent earlier, to unlock the hood or door of the robot and retrieve the package or goods they had ordered. In addition, the subscription is for unlimited number of deliveries. Amazon has also deployed delivery robots in the Irvine area of California, and will operate during the daytime. Though these robots operate autonomously, they are accompanied by a ‘scout ambassador, who happens to be a human. Dominos has also tied up with a startup, which has designed a delivery robot called ‘nuro. Technicians can call the robots to retrieve, move or pick up various parts and tools they need from the stock room without having to leave their work stations. Back in 2016, in order to improve worker efficiency at its equipment repair center in Collierville, Tennessee, US, FedEx began using autonomous delivery robots at its equipment repair center to move, retrieve, bring, or take parts and tools the workers require from the store or stock room.


Benefits arising from using robots for deliveries is that the last-mile delivery costs are reduced substantially. It also reduces costs incurred for vehicle purchase or hire, fuel, as well as delivery personnel fee. In addition, delivery robots are being used in hotels to deliver food orders to patrons, and delivery robots are finding their way into hospitals. These robots – called relay robots in hospitals – are being used to carry samples and specimen to laboratories, and medication to nurses and medical staff for administration to patients. As technology continues to advance, delivery robots are projected to be used for a range of new applications, and this is a major factor projected to drive growth of the global delivery robots market to a significant extent over the forecast period. Many autonomous delivery robots currently available are controlled remotely, and there is continuous data being exchanged between robot and control center. As a result, concerns remain regarding data protection. In addition, awareness regarding the benefits of robot delivery, as well as high cost of units are among other factors expected to hamper market growth. Components such as LiDAR, sensors, and cameras important and costly parts in delivery robots. Opportunities to expand sales volume and drive revenue share are available, if manufacturers are able to reduce initial cost of products, which in turn will put purchase potential higher. The trend is that the world is heading steadily to the future in terms of automation and more convenience. From driverless cars, to delivery drones, demand for such new and highly innovative solutions and products is projected to continue way into the future.

Global Autonomous Delivery Robots Market Segment Analysis:

By Carrying Capacity: The 10.01–50.00 kg segment is projected to account for majority revenue share owing to convenient size and carrying capacity, as well as cost. By Number of Wheels: The four wheels and six wheels segment are more preferred than the three wheel unit owing to better stability. In addition, the six wheels unit is capable of climbing the sidewalk and other obstacles.

Global Autonomous Delivery Robots Market Regional Analysis:

Revenue from sales and deployment of delivery drones in the market in North America is projected to continue to remain the highest as compared to that of other markets. This high projected revenue is attributed to increasing grants and government funds and support towards development of products related to robotics, automation etc., in countries in the region. In addition, the region has robust presence of leading players in the target market. Delivery robot delivery is currently ongoing in countries such as Australia and Japan in Asia Pacific region, and this is expected to be completed by 2019 end, following which commercialization and delivery is expected. Need for increased efficiency and increasing volume of online orders for a range of products among consumers in countries in Asia Pacific, and increasing adoption among retailers and in the food industry are some of the major factor driving growth of the market for delivery robots. In addition, presence of major e-commerce companies such as Amazon, Walmart, and Alibaba in countries in the region is among other key factors.

Below are the active patents related to Autonomous Delivery Robots Market.

Patent Number: US9230236B2 Automated delivery vehicle, systems and methods for automated delivery Abstract Provided are methods and systems for automated delivery using a delivery vehicle transported by a carrier vehicle. The automated delivery method comprises receiving, by a processing device, an order from a buyer. The order specifies one or more products to be delivered to the buyer and itinerary information. The processing device transmits the order to a placer robot. The placer robot positions the one or more products to a delivery vehicle. A carrier vehicle transports the delivery vehicle to a delivery destination based on the order. The carrier vehicle is driverless and lightweight and moves automatically. The carrier vehicle moves on a flat track using itinerary information of the order. Type: Grant Filed: 2013-11-20 Date of Patent: 2016-01-05 Inventor: Daniel Judge Villamar
