Market Overview:
“The global “Milking Robots Market” is estimated to reach a high CAGR of 14% during the forecast period (2021-2028)”

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.

Market Dynamics:

Technological advancement such as real-time elimination of chemical agents to swell market

The integration of different technologies is a preliminary factor promoting this market growth. The robots are integrated with various sensors and measurement devices which perform the operational workflow and monitor the same. For instance, in January 2019, GEA Group unveils a new milking system engineered to enhance the milking process and increase the on-farm efficiency. Additionally, the robot integrated with the SCC monitor sensor proactively analyzes milk flow continuously throughout the entire milking process. Moreover, it collects reliable data in real-time eliminating chemical reagents, to help detect mastitis early. It also helps to minimize treatment time and protect the health of the herd. Furthermore, unique cleaning requirements, individual quarter monitoring and detach, automatic cleaning and system alerts are some other factors where sensors play a vital role, thereby adding impetus to this market.

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. Moreover, the functioning and usability of milking robots are highly dependent on the training given to the cows at dairy farms. Cows need to adapt and adjust to the systems for better efficiency. Inadequate training is a major factor expected to slow down the market. Further, new cows need to be trained early to ensure rapid and complete adaptation to the automatic system. Furthermore, as the milking system operates 24/7, the availability of technical support is vital. This is because breakdown while milking activity can physically damage the herd and delicate sensors of the robot components, thereby causing potential expenditure for repairing.

Competitive Landscape:

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. In July 2021, GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft introduced latest milking robots namely, ‘DairyRobot R9500’ and ‘automatic milking systems DairyProQ’ to enhance the milking technology module. It ensures improved serviceability, minimized system downtime and lower maintenance cost.

In May 2021, Fullwood Packo announced latest robotic technology ‘batch milking system, the M²erlin Meridian’ for flexible milking systems in the U.K. The newly introduced system is suitable for farms that have gazing platform in order to minimize forage and also improves the milking time, labour and overall environment.

In May 2020, BouMatic introduced ‘The Gemini’, a milking robot that is ready to empower every size of dairy farms across the globe. It offers advantages such as, lower service cost, quick monitoring and identification of health issues, hose guidance system that provides appropriate hose position under the cow and others. DeLaval launched its advanced VMS™ milking system V310 in November 2019 while Lely unveiled Astronaut A5 milking robot in April 2018.

Technical support is one of the major factors BouMatic is focusing on to provide its customers quick services in case of machine failures. Also, a team of certified service engineers are ready to help 24/7. Furthermore, various training programs are organized to widespread the importance of herd safety and dairy management.
