The automated material handling equipment market size is expected to grow from US$ 35.65 billion in 2022 to US$ 56.34 billion by 2028; it is estimated to record a CAGR of 9.1% from 2022 to 2028.

Industrial robotics is becoming increasingly entangled with Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data, and other technologies. It is predicted that robots would boost productivity and provide advanced smart assistance to humans in the future. Automated material handling systems are computerized technologies using robots instead of human labor. These systems are used to lift, pull, store, push, and retrieve materials and products. The automated material handling systems can bring a new amount of productivity in different application areas, including manufacturing plants and warehouses. Growing era of industrial robotics is contributing towards the growth of automated material handling equipment market growth.

The players are significantly investing in developing industrial robots integrated with AI. Further, the Chinese government is expanding its efforts to integrate AI into industrial robots. The integration will reduce the human intervention, which will benefit countries with inadequate and expensive labor forces. However, this may also result in loss of employment in labor-intensive economies.

Additionally, higher adoption of robotics, rise in big data, increase in inclination towards e-commerce, and proliferation of micro-fulfillment centers are projected to create lucrative business opportunities in automated material handling equipment market during the forecast period.

System Type-Based Insights

Based on system type, the automated material handling equipment market is bifurcated into unit load and bulk load. In 2022, the unit load segment held a larger market share. The system is preferred by most of the industries due to the ease of construction along with practicality of unit load AMH systems. With the growing factory automation, the demand for these types of material handling systems is also set to increase. Unit load AMH are generally introduced upon work-in-progress operations to support just-in-time delivery and buffer storage in the production process. Manufacturing industries such as automotive, metal & heavy machinery, semiconductors, and electronics are a few major consumers of unit load AMH systems. Growing application of unit loads for high-density pallet storage, special loads, goods-to-person technology, cold & freezer storage, and buffering & staging is expected to endure the adoption of unit loads for handling large and heavy loads in the coming years. The mentioned aspects on use of unit loads will contribute towards the global automated material handling equipment market.

The automated material handling equipment market players are mainly focused on developing advanced and efficient products.

  • In January 2023, Trew, LLC (an automated materials handling solutions provider) announced that it is expanding its footprint in Southwest Ohio (the US). The company aims to set up a technology center to accelerate material handling solution innovation while generating minimum 75 new engineering jobs. The company would receive a grant of up to US$ 4 million in assistance with an R&D Grant from JobsOhio. This grant will enable Trew to develop warehouse execution software and automation technologies, and create a demonstration, testing, and training facility.
  • In December 2022, Ensign Equipment Inc., a material handling equipment and integrated systems for handling dry bulk solids provider, completed the expansion of their assembly plant. The expansion would double Ensign Equipment Inc assembly space, fulfilling the rising demand for automated material handling solutions.

The automated material handling equipment market size is segmented into five major regions—North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), the Middle East & Africa, and South America. In 2022, APAC led the automated material handling equipment market with a substantial revenue share, followed by Europe. Further, Asia Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR in the automated material handling equipment market from 2022 to 2028.
