A key factor driving the growth of the market is the shortage of farm labor. Fruit growers will increasingly invest in robotic fruit pickers to cope with the shortage in the number of workers needed to pick fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, and avocados, tomatoes, cucumbers, and mandarin oranges. Manual fruit picking is expected to become a challenging task in the future considering that the labor employed in fruit picking tasks is generally seasonal and temporary.

This market research report on the global robotic fruit picker market 2018-2022 also provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook during the forecast period. Technavio classifies an emerging trend as a major factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.


In this report, Technavio highlights the technological advances as one of the key emerging trends in the global robotic fruit picker market:
