The supply chain management has undergone a dramatic transition in technology in recent years. The market for automated guided vehicles such as forklift trucks, pallet trucks, small rack carriers and others has expanded as these vehicles are able to perform desired activities with detailed programming of machines. Furthermore, there is an increasing need for safe, reliable and more efficient material handling in the e-commercial sector, which is fuelling this market.

The growing automated vehicle industry is further boosting the growth. However, the high initial investment and high cost of servicing and maintenance of automated guided vehicles can hinder the market growth. The rapid technical advancements and the increased emphasis on security and precision would lead to the growth of the industry over the projected period.

Automated Guided Vehicle Market Trends

A large share of the automated driven vehicle industry is reflected in the unit carrier category. The enhanced use of unit load transporters to provide pallets and wide containers and their ability to effectively plan the task can also be attributed to reducing inventory loss and aisle flow.

Furthermore, unlike fork trucks, it needs no human interaction and is thus suitable for repeated activities in unsafe environments. As they are autonomous in nature, they eliminate human labour requirements and provide employees with improved protection. The increased demand for better protection for employees contributes greatly to this segment’s rise.
