Published Date : Jan 2020 | No. of Pages : 140 Pages | Category : Automation and Transport

The global automated guided vehicle market size is anticipated to surpass around US$ 4 Bn by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 14% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

The automated guided vehicle market is highly technology driven, and original equipment manufacturers are strongly focused on enhancing the capabilities of their existing product portfolios.

Rise in need for automation in the material handling process across sectors, such as automotive, manufacturing, aerospace, and healthcare, is estimated to drive the demand for AGVs. A key benefit associated with AGVs is the reduction of labor cost. Furthermore, it also promotes efficient material handling since manual material handling has always been time-consuming and prone to accidents. AGVs combined with radio frequency technology collaborate with the warehouse control system and the warehouse management system to improve accuracy and efficiency, since AGVs have little downtime and operate at a fixed rate to meet a predictable metric for operational activity. Therefore, the use of AGVs in warehouses directly reduce labor costs and increases the efficiency and reliability of storage process. A key challenge for manufacturers of automated guided vehicles is in turning a prototype into a commercial product in the market. These vehicle manufacturers face various issues including modeling, data modelling, and self-calibration.

Penetration of AGVs is rising in the material handling and management industry. Furthermore, they are also being extensively utilized in several industries such as retail, manufacturing, healthcare, logistics, food & beverage, and aerospace. AGVs are employed in various areas across a facility including assemble, kitting, transportation, warehousing, staging, order picking and transferring load to support processing and handling. The use of AGVs helps eliminate risks arisen due to handling of materials manually. AGVs improve safety at the workplace, while optimizing the speed of the operation.

e-Commerce companies are adopting automated guided vehicles as a key component in their growth and expansion, as AGVs can reduce their processing time. Expansion of e-Commerce industries are likely to offer significant opportunity to AGV manufacturers. Moreover, when it comes to retail, e-Commerce is the fastest distribution channel, and it is no longer restricted to developed markets of the U.S. and Europe. It has become a global phenomenon with high market penetration in APAC. Therefore, expansion of e-commerce and use of AGVs by e-Commerce players are projected to further offer considerable opportunities to the global AGV market.
