|Published: June 29, 2020||Content info:||
Milking robots are automated milking systems that enable complete automation of milking process in dairy farms. Typically, these systems are designed to milk 60 cows and commercial robots capable of handling up to 80 cows are available in the market. It is used to replace manual intervention in the milk harvesting process. Milking robots are integrated with supporting arms that clean the teats and cover with disinfectants to reduce the risk of infection. Also, advanced solutions are designed featuring monitoring systems that provide milk production per cow and individual cow health
The global milking robots market valued USD 1.2 billion in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD 3.7 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 14%
The rising interest towards precision dairy management in countries such as Australia, Canada and Israel will support the growth of market in their regions. Large herd size and decreasing farm labor, quality and productivity benefits of milking robots are other factors surging the demand for milking robots across the globe. The herd size in small dairy farms of China is witnessing gradual increase and reached 15 by 2018. The number is likely to reach 20 in near future and motivate these farms towards automation. Norway, Western Germany, and some other European nations are also on verge of rigorous farm automation. Moreover, the increasing average herd size of cows, particularly in countries such as Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand will force integration of additional systems in their farms.
However, the initial cost for purchase and maintenance of these systems is the primary factor hindering the market growth. In countries such as India and Indonesia with often small herd sizes are still away from integration of these systems.
The global milking robots market is segmented by system type into single stall systems and multi stall systems. Single-stall systems account for largest share in the global market. The low cost, availability of various capacities and multiple options are supporting the demand for these systems.
By geography, Europe is the largest market for milking robots with a market share of nearly 50% in terms of dollar sales in 2018. The Netherlands and France are the leading countries in the region. Large number of dairy farms and increasing milk demand for milk production in these countries is boosting the sales of milking robots in Europe. The bigger herd size of dairy farms in European countries is supporting the market growth. The average number of dairy cows in Netherlands, Denmark and U.K. were recorded as 97, 150, and 148 respectively in 2018. Also, the higher milk yield per cow and decreasing agricultural labor in the region led to the adoption of milking robots.
The global milking robots market is highly consolidated with top 5 companies accounting for over 80% of the global sales. Lely and DeLaval are by far the leading market players, followed by other companies such as Boumatic Robotics B.V., GEA and SAC. Most of these companies are focused towards integration of data analysis networks that enable analysis of milk production per cow in the herd. The market is likely to remain consolidated and competitive with development of advanced solutions by these players
