The automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) market was valued at US$ 2,417.6 million in 2020 and is projected to reach US$ 4,151.8 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2021 to 2028.

The growing population worldwide is remarkably impacting the demand for multiple product categories in automotive, pharmaceutical, retail, electronics, food & beverage, and many other industries. To cater to this enormously increasing demand, manufacturers have expanded their productions significantly. However, increased production demands for the extensive requirement of storage spaces, efficient in terms of both occupied floor space and cost incurred. Warehouses, storage centers, and distribution centers play a vital role in maintaining stocks of consumer goods of various companies. Minimal damage to the product while storage, limited storage costs, and fast pick and drop of goods, are the factors that manufacturers and supply chain partners are opting for storage purposes as well as for further movement of goods.

Diverse storage solutions such as unit load, mid-load, carousels, and AutoStore serve various purposes to their users with added value, thereby helping them in reducing costs. For instance, horizontal carousels save up to 66% of floor space, whereas, vertical carousels and vertical lift module save up to 75% and 85% of floor space, respectively. Also, these storage systems are designed in a way that storing and picking of goods becomes less time consuming and more efficient. It helps to increase productivity at the workplace. Similarly, horizontal and vertical carousels are used for storage of small parts and tools used either at the manufacturing plant shop floor or for the storage of consumer goods. Moreover, the modular structure of these systems ensures flexibility and scalability. Thus, the need for fast, space-efficient, and cost-effective storage systems along with maximum throughput and productivity, is driving the market for automated storage and retrieval system, across most of the end-user industries. The automated storage and retrieval system market is expected to witness a slight decline in growth over the next few years, due to the negative impact of COVID-19. However, it is expected to rise again at a healthy pace after the COVID-19 pandemic is over.
