The global Logistics Automation market expected to reach $XX billion by 2026, at a CAGR of over 14% during the forecast period. Mainly due to the rise in adoption of technologies such as industrial internet of things (IIoT) and robotics which helps warehouses to increase their efficiency.
Logistics automation is the application of computer software or automated machinery to improve the efficiency of logistics operations. Typically, this refers to operations within a warehouse or distribution centre, with broader tasks undertaken by supply chain management systems and enterprise resource planning systems. Automating logistics management processes can help make organizations more efficient and can have a significant impact on bottom lines as a result. To achieve these better profit margins, there are a few other important benefits of bringing automation into the warehouse and distribution channels.
The report covers all the major trends and drivers playing a vital role in the growth of the global Logistics Automationmarket. The global Logistics Automation market has been segmented based on Region, Organization Size, Component, and Vertical.
The global Logistics Automation market growth is primarily driven by the rise in the e-commerce industry. With the growth in internet penetration all around the world, enabling people to access to online sales. The e-commerce industry is expected to grow in the forecast period and hence will highly contribute to boosting the logistics automation market.
Moreover, with the rise in the technologies such as IIoT, robotics and analytics is the other driving factor for the logistic automation to grow. The advancement in these technologies is addressing the major problem of the logistics that is cost-efficient and time-efficient delivery of goods. By addressing these two major problems of logistics is also helping in customer service improvement by delivering items quickly. With the advancing technologies, the companies are heavily investing in automation technologies. For instance, Deutsche Post unit DHL Supply Chain North America is investing $300 million to increase the level of automation and robotics at 350 of its 430 facilities, to better handle the crush of e-commerce orders, the company told Bloomberg News.DHL also plans to open a 24,000square-foot innovation centre near Chicago in September 2019, with a focus on developing new tools that can increase the speed of online order fulfilment.
However, factors such as high initial cost, lack of awareness, and integration complexities might hamper the market growth over the forecast period.
Market Segment Analysis
