Research and Markets Logo

The global automated material handling equipment market is projected to reach USD 45.7 billion by 2028 from USD 30.6 billion in 2023, at a CAGR of 8.3% from 2023 to 2028. The growth of this market is attributed to the rising demand for automated material handling equipment among diverse industries and the growing number of start-ups offering robotics solutions for warehouse automation.

Unit Load segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during 2023-2028

Unit load material handling systems involve appropriately sized items organized into a single unit that can be moved easily. It consists in handling various items or unit formats independently, even when they are transported in large quantities or are significant in dimension. These systems are quick and economical to move several items in a single run. These systems help reduce damages and handling costs. Such systems make handling, storage, and distribution more efficient. The types of AMHE used to manage unit loads include AGVs, ASRS, and robots.

Automotive Industry to account for the largest share of market in 2023

The automotive industry players seek improvements in manufacturing through automated and efficient processes. These companies need to carry out their manufacturing and assembling operations efficiently by carefully handling various components and keeping track of it. The deployment of AMHE in this industry helps prevent damage to auto parts, reduce the cost of unproductive labor hours by handling inventory, and maximize storage capacity within the available floor space.

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to contribute the largest share of the market during the forecast period

Asia-Pacific consists of some of the fastest-growing economies – such as China, Japan, and India. Substantial domestic demand for products and significant business growth opportunities have led to the establishment of number of manufacturing and warehousing plants of various industries in the countries. These plants are of major industries such as automotive, metals & heavy machinery, and semiconductor & electronics, in the region. This in turn is offering lucrative opportunities for the automated material handling equipment market in Asia-Pacific.
