The global Forklift market size is expected to be worth around US$ 120.9 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Forklift market size was valued at US$ 49.5 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 12.2% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.
Forklifts also called lift trucks or powered industrial trucks, are small truck-like vehicles used to move various types of materials over short distances. They are widely used by retailers in warehouses to manage their storage space efficiently. With online shopping increasing owing to the COVID-19 outbreak, the demand for lift trucks in retail sector is bound to increase. Amid the spread of COVID-19, emergency measures are taken by governments across the world to protect people and ensure their well-being. Strict lockdown measures are implemented in various countries that have paved the way for online shopping. This has increased in the storage of products and led to the demand for such as lift trucks.
Lift trucks play a vital role in the manufacturing sector. They do not directly contribute to the manufacturing of products but are crucial for inventory management and transportation of goods in an efficient manner. They enhance the manufacturing process by ensuring a smooth and organized transfer of raw materials and products over the production line. Lack of skilled labor is expected to impede market growth from 2020 to 2027. However, market players are taking initiatives and are conducting training programs for employees. For instance, Toyota’s forklift dealers offer one on one forklift training at their local dealership centers. Furthermore, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has various training sessions for forklifts, ensuring a safe work environment. Moreover, the advent of autonomous vehicles for warehouses and manufacturing facilities is anticipated to overcome this challenge and open new avenues for market growth over the next seven years.
The class 3 segment held the largest market share of 37.7% in 2019. This is due to their ability to quickly unload materials from delivery trucks and is highly preferred for small warehouses. Similarly, the class 4/5 segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. This is attributable to the usage of diesel operating lift trucks in China. Class 4/5 type of forklifts consists of internal combustion and is used in both applications, in large warehouses, and for loading materials on the docks. This gives them a greater advantage over other types of powered industrial trucks which are used for operating in narrow aisles and warehouses only. Other types included in the class segment are class 1, class 2, and class 3 type lift trucks.
the electric segment held the largest market share of 67.4% in 2019 with a CAGR exceeding 13.0% from 2020 to 2027. This is attributable to the increasing demand for electric lift trucks owing to the stringent emission regulations in Europe. In January 2019, the European Union set Euro-Stage V emission standards for diesel and LPG powered non road vehicles. The new standards limit the emissions of particulate matter and reduce them further by 40.0% as that of previous norms. Owing to the changes made in these standards, the demand for electric lift trucks is anticipated to rise over the forecast period.
In terms of revenue, Asia Pacific dominated the market with a share of 38.8% in 2019. This is attributable to the rising demand in developing economies such as China and India. China is considered the manufacturing hub which resulted in huge demand for lift trucks. Furthermore, India launched the “Make in India” initiative in 2014 to encourage foreign direct investments in various industries, including manufacturing. With companies such as General Electric, Siemens, Boeing, and HTC focusing on establishing manufacturing facilities in India, the market for forklifts is expected to rise over the forecast period.
