This article intends to provide information on pharmaceutical robots used in industry, as well as to gather and analyse data from previous years relating to the deployment of industrial robots in the market and their impact on worker employment or jobs. Cartesian, SCARA, and articulated robots are the three most prevalent types of industrial robots. These robots can be used in sterile production, laboratories, packaging, 3D printing, and a variety of other pharmaceutical applications. Only a few micro and nanoscale robots are available for drug delivery. As a result, the use of robots has increased. A market analysis of robots as well as a research of the robotic performance to price ratio was conducted. Based on the research, Asia is the world's largest industrial robot market, with an annual installation rate of 13% from 2014 to 2019. According to the performance to price ratio, quality adjusted robot prices were about one-fifth of what they were in 1990 by 2005. This accounted for 15% of overall productivity growth. According to the study, the number of installations is growing year after year, and many companies are contemplating pharmaceutical robots because of their numerous pharmaceutical applications, benefits, flexibility, and capacity to securely collaborate with people. It is expected that in the near future, robotics will play an important role in the pharmaceutical industry.
