The global automated material handling equipment market size reached US$ 37.2 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 56.1 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 7.2% during 2023-2028.
Material handling involves a wide range of activities, including movement, protection, storage and control, which are performed during manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, consumption and disposal of products and materials. It is nowadays commonly conducted using automated material handling equipment to reduce human intervention and improve logistics management. It also helps in forecasting, production planning, resource allocation, inventory control, flow and process management, and after-sales support and services. Consequently, several organizations are relying on automated handling equipment to improve customer service, reduce inventory, shorten delivery time and lower overall handling costs.
Rapid industrialization, the emergence of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) and the widespread adoption of the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies are among the major factors spurring the market growth. Apart from this, due to the substantial rise in the aerospace, agriculture, automotive and construction industries, leading companies in these sectors are utilizing next-generation automated material handling equipment to modernize manufacturing processes, increase flexibility in warehouse operations and enhance transparency in the supply chain. Moreover, key players are emphasizing on mergers and acquisitions (M&A), collaborations and partnerships with other companies to introduce innovative products. Furthermore, on account of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, implementation of social distancing rules by governing agencies and the rising adoption of remote working models, these players are also focusing on automating and digitizing the supply chains. This, in turn, is expected to provide a positive impact on the market growth.
