According to the new research report published by The Insight Partners, titled “Automated Material Handling Equipment Market - Global Analysis and Forecast to 2025”, The global automated material handling equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period 2018 – 2025, to account to US$51,219.6 Mn by 2025.

A number of industrial facilities and warehouses are increasing the use of automated solutions to enhance their profits, warehouse operations, comfort as well as worker safety. Automated material handling equipment are largely used at manufacturing sites, distribution centers, retail, wholesale and institutions. Furthermore, it helps in reducing labor cost since automation of processes helps in reducing involvement of several individuals and it generally requires one person to operate such systems. Various industries such as automotive, metals & heavy machinery, food & beverages, and others are concerned about reducing labor intensive processes, increasing accuracy and speed for material handling. However, the high cost associated to installation of these equipment along with the overall maintenance cost is hindering the market growth as it is often not affordable for small plants to incur such costly automation.

The expansion in the manufacturing industry is further highly driven by the economic growth worldwide. Also, the industry is presently found to be in the middle of a technological renaissance, which is changing the outlook, systems and processes of the modern factory. This technological revolution in the factories has been encouraging the manufacturing industries to further invest into these emerging technologies in order to enhance their productivity and production cycle. Currently, the manufacturing sector is witnessing error-free as well as streamlined procedures using Robotic Process Automation (RPA). The manufacturing companies are replacing the production unit from human sources to industry robots for the products to assemble, quality check, and packaging to be done. Manufacturing facilities have been incorporating greater levels of automation, so the rise or demand for new technologies is growing rapidly. Manufacturing of consumer electronics, healthcare related products, automobiles, and defense industries are some of the prominent industry verticals that have been prolific in the automation integrations into the manufacturing assembly lines. Thus, the rapid expansion in the manufacturing industry coupled with automation integrations is expected to drive the demand for automated material handling equipment globally.

Key findings of the study:

  • Asia-Pacific is anticipated to account the largest automated material handling equipment market share.
  • Based on product, the robot segment is projected to dominate the automated material handling equipment market.
  • Unit load segment led the automated material handling equipment market by system type in 2017.
  • Hardware dominated the market by component.
  • Storage led the market by function.
  • Automotive held the second largest market by industry.

The emergence of online shopping and e-commerce is resulting in bolstering the market growth for automated material handling equipment as well as the increasing adoption of automated solutions in manufacturing industries, particularly in developing economies. Some of the global key players operating in the automated material handling equipment market are Daifuku Co. Ltd., Hyster-Yale Material Handling, Inc., Jungheinrich AG, Kion Group AG, Toyota Industries Corporation, Hanwha Corporation, John Bean Technologies Corporation, Kuka AG, Beumer Group Gmbh & Co., and Fives Group. Many companies are investing in the automated material handling equipment owing to the potential improvements related to accuracy, operational efficiency, and timely order fulfilment.
