Inflation and Looming Recession to Haunt Businesses:

In 2022 & 2023, market players expected to sail in rough waters; might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain. Further, U.S. economy is expected to grow merely by 3% in 2022. Purchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%.
On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.

Global Autonomous Delivery Robots Market Definition

Autonomous delivery robots are typically described as powered electric vehicles that also carry goods or deliveries to clients without the assistance of a delivery human. Making use of sensors and navigational technologies, autonomous delivery robots autonomously move around on sidewalks and highways without a driver or other delivery personnel present. There are two different types of autonomous delivery robots. Small enough to fit on a person's foot, sidewalk automated robots only go on footpaths or sidewalks. These robots have been developed and created to deliver various kinds of packages from one place to another. There are couriers, shipments, meals, and other items that must be delivered. The delivery industry has been transformed by autonomous delivery robots.
