The study involved four major activities in estimating the current size of the global warehouse robotics market. Exhaustive secondary research has been done to collect information about the market, the peer market, and the parent market. Validating findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain through primary research has been the next step. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches have been employed to estimate the complete market size. After that, market breakdown and data triangulation methods have been used to estimate the market size of segments and subsegments.

Secondary Research

Secondary sources include company websites, magazines, industry news, associations, and databases (OneSource, Factiva, and Bloomberg). The secondary sources used for this research study include government sources, corporate filings (such as annual reports, investor presentations, and financial statements), and trade, articles, white papers, industry news, business, and professional associations. The secondary data have been collected and analyzed to arrive at the overall market size, which has been further validated through primary research.

Primary Research

Extensive primary research has been conducted after understanding and analyzing the Warehouse Robotics market scenario through secondary research. Several primary interviews have been conducted with key opinion leaders from both demand- and supply-side vendors across four major regions—North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW. Approximately 30% of the primary interviews have been conducted with the demand side and 70% with the supply side. These primary data have been collected mainly through telephonic interviews, which consist of 80% of the overall primary interviews; also, questionnaires and emails were used to collect the data.

After interacting with industry experts, brief sessions were conducted with highly experienced independent consultants to reinforce the findings from our primaries. This, along with the in-house subject matter experts’ opinions, has led us to the findings as described in the remainder of this report.
