Global Automated Guided Vehicle Market Outlook

The global automated guided vehicle market reached a value of about USD 2 billion in 2020. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 10% in the forecast period of 2021-2026 to reach a value of approximately USD 3.5 billion by 2026.

 

Increasing Demand for Unit Load Carriers to Augment the Automated Guided Vehicle Industry Growth

Based on type, the unit load carrier segment accounts for a significant share in the automated guided vehicle industry. This can be attributed to the increasing utilisation of unit load carriers to deliver pallets and large containers and their ability to schedule the task efficiently by minimising product damage and aisle traffic. Further, they do not need human intervention unlike fork trucks, and, thus, are great for repetitive tasks and hazardous areas.  Being autonomous in nature, they reduce the requirement of human labour and provide enhanced safety to workers. The rising demand for enhanced workers’ safety is significantly contributing to the growth of the segment.

 

The Asia Pacific to Provide Enhanced Growth Opportunities to the Automated Guided Vehicle Industry

Region-wise, the Asia Pacific is expected to witness a robust growth over the forecast period owing to the increasing acceptance of technology, rapid industrialisation, and growing shift towards automation. Furthermore, the growing investments by the leading e-commerce companies like Amazon and others in emerging countries like China and India are expected to significantly contribute to the industry growth in the forecast period.

Increasing Demand for Automation in Material Handling and the Thriving E-Commerce Sector to Bolster the Growth of the Automated Guided Vehicle Industry

In recent years, supply chain management has witnessed a dramatic shift towards automation. There has been a rise in adoption of automated guided vehicles like forklifts, pallet trucks, small rack-carrying robots, and others as these vehicles can perform some tasks by using machine learning and deep learning. They are seen as the safest alternatives for manual material handling. Additionally, the growth of the e-commerce industry is resulting in increased demand for safe and efficient material handling equipment to boost productivity. This is further driving the growth of the automated guided vehicle industry. However, high initial investment and maintenance costs associated with automated guided vehicles may hamper the industry growth.

Over the forecast period, the rapid technological advancements and the increasing focus on safety and accuracy are expected to favour the industry growth. The integration of industry 4.0 is expected to be a major trend in the coming years.
