Many enterprises are introducing robotics technology to improve the management of inventory, especially after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The implementation of robotics technology reduces labor costs, provides more efficient and accurate process flow, and robots can work 24x7 at the same cost. In addition, robotics technology integrated with artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) helped enterprises improve warehouse automation. With the integration of robotics technology and warehouse management system, robots are fed the inventory data, which helps them perform accurate and efficient warehouse operations. Such benefits are fueling the warehouse management system market growth.

Warehouses are incorporating robots to perform simple and repetitive tasks, especially in industries such as manufacturing and retail & e-commerce. Due to shifting consumer preferences during the COVID-19 pandemic, warehouses across all sizes increasingly adopted automation to maintain social distancing and reduce the number of staff that works from the facility. In addition, robots are widely used to perform tasks for workers such as measuring temperatures and administering hand sanitizer. Many logistics experts have also shifted their manual operations to automation. Warehouse robotics technology is rapidly advancing; for instance, robots can navigate the warehouse autonomously. In addition to bulk transport of goods, robots can pick, pack, and palletize items, which simplifies warehouse-related processes. Moreover, the rising popularity of e-commerce has accelerated the demand for robots across WMS. With the growing number of online orders and rising demand for faster shipping, warehouses and fulfillment centers are leveraging robotic systems to improve order completion and better manage inventory. The demand for robot hardware systems is growing, which helps reduce the time and resources spent on retrieving and transporting items around the warehouse floor. The system allows workers to concentrate on more complicated processes such as packing and shipping orders.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Europe Warehouse Management System Market Growth


In Europe, the timing and the degree of response by different countries to the COVID-19 pandemic, followed by gradually restarting economies, resulted in an adverse impact on the warehouse management system market in the region. Prominent European warehouse management system market players suffered a significant downturn in revenue forecasts as the supply chain was disrupted due to import and export restrictions. In addition, the shutdown of manufacturing and production in commercial spaces, especially during the initial phase of the pandemic, negatively impacted the market in the region. Several verticals, such as manufacturing, retail, e-commerce, and automotive, are adopting WMS offerings as consumers quickly migrate to internet platforms. In addition, there is a rise in demand for online food and beverages, essentials, and prescriptions—increasing the requirement for warehousing.

Several major firms are opening warehouses in several countries to accommodate the rising demand for WMS solutions. As a result, WMS is becoming more popular in e-commerce and third-party logistics companies. E-commerce behemoths such as Amazon, Asos, and eBay are projected to continue driving the demand for WMS as they establish new facilities throughout the region. Additionally, the situation is improving owing to the decline in COVID-19 cases in the area, and the market is picking up speed and will expand throughout the projection period. Therefore, the warehouse management system market growth is estimated to rise substantially post-COVID-19.

Market Insights – Warehouse Management System Market 

Evolving Global Supply Chain Networks

The cause-and-effect situation in a supply chain network is relatively straightforward. Organizations have more geographic distribution within their warehouse network, adding a layer of complexity regarding management. Managing a supply chain across borders also introduces regulatory and localization complexity that must be dealt with, as users in different countries use the same underlying systems to get the job done. Moreover, WMS plays a critical role in helping organizations deal with the added logistical burden of globalization. Leading WMS solutions can take this to another level through specialized data collection and integration tools. In January 2023, Crave InfoTech launched a new product for extended warehouse management (EWM) called cEWM, which is built using SAP BTP. It is a cross-platform that streamlines warehouse processes, whether online or offline. The traditional Internet-ported apps used in warehouses often lose connectivity and with it, all the process data, thereby becoming a bottleneck for the overall supply chain. Crave InfoTech's cEWM app addresses these challenges and works efficiently offline or online, irrespective of mid-process disconnection. Furthermore, supply chain management aims to maintain an uninterrupted flow of goods, from collecting raw materials to manufacturing to distributing the final product.
