The global automated material handling AMH market was valued at USD 40403.78 million in 2017 and is expected to reach a value of USD 68991.5 million by 2023 at a CAGR of 11.29%, over the forecast period 2018 2023. Advances in global industrial production, rapid growth in the number of industrializing countries, increasing emphasis on workplace safety, and rapid growth in the ecommerce industry are expected to raise the need for automated material handling equipment during the forecast period. With high differentiation between products, and continuous decrease in the price of commodities by vendors, a high level of competition has been created in the market.
Currently, to penetrate further into this fragmented market, AMH manufacturers are increasingly spending on RD activities to achieve product differentiation and produce highly efficient AMH systems. However, challenges, such as high capital expenditure, reluctance to change, and technical glitches are expected to affect the market's growth in the near future.
Increasing Manufacturing Activity and Miniaturization of Material Handling Equipment to Drive the Growth
With the increase in the global population and rise in personal incomes, the demand for various products is expected to witness significant growth. Increasing investment in various industries in developing countries, such as China, India, etc. is also expected to contribute significantly to the rise in demand for AMH equipment. Substantial gains in automated equipment demand are expected to influence the manufacturers to shift their preferences toward the products that enhance productivity and are flexible for integration into automated warehouses. Rising efforts among end users to reduce labor costs, particularly in developed markets such as the United States, are expected to impact the growth of the automated material handling industry.
Retail Segment to Lead the Global Automated Material Handling Market
With the increase in the number of stock keeping units SKUs, the size of the warehouse has increased considerably, making it difficult for warehouse workers to perform their tasks proficiently. To counter this difficulty, warehouse automation has proven to be the perfect choice for retailers and manufacturers. Additionally, many retailers are using automation in both the front and back office to help deliver digital transformation, decrease cost and increase operational efficiencies. Especially, enterprise retailers are in a strong position to test new growth initiatives, implement new technologies, and improve shopper engagement, by employing AMH equipment in their production line.
