| Table of Contents/Index of Exhibits |

RIA has produced a brand-new 100-page study of the market for material handling robotics. More than 215 interviews were conducted with current users and non-users by the Allegheny Marketing Group, a leading market research firm, in order to assess the opportunities and challenges for companies selling material handling robots and components.

Among the key findings:

  • 80% of non-users surveyed would consider using material handling robots if they could be convinced the system can be cost justified.
  • Less than 15% of current robot users surveyed use robots for palletizing and packaging applications, but many of these users expect to in the near future.
  • 53% of non material handling robot users surveyed have never been called on by a robotics supplier
  • Easier to use software programming is cited as a key need in order for further market growth

This study can help you:

  • Identify new market opportunities and challenges
  • Better understand customer needs and experiences
  • Give you insight on new approaches to sell material handling robots and components
