The main types of autonomous forklift are indoor and outdoor. The term indoor autonomous forklift refers to autonomous forklifts that are used indoors for pallet movement in warehouses, distribution centers, and other indoor material storage places. Indoor forklifts have a smaller turning radius, which makes them suitable for movement even inside smaller facilities. The different components include hardware, software, and services and involve several navigation technologies such as laser guidance, magnetic guidance, vision guidance, inductive guidance, optical tape guidance, and others. It is used in manufacturing, warehousing, material handling, logistics & freight, and other applications.
The increasing demand for automated warehouses is expected to drive the growth of the autonomous forklift market going forward. Automated warehouses refer to the systems used for warehouse operations with automated material handling equipment integrated with artificial intelligence and robotics. Manufacturers are adopting autonomous forklifts for their operations as they offer a significant improvement in productivity, reduce product damage, improve safety and efficiency, and reduce labor costs. These benefits have encouraged industries to embrace the use of autonomous forklifts, thereby increasing their demand. For instance, in December 2021, according to Conveyco, a UK-based material handling equipment supplier, at least 6,20,000 shipments of various warehouse automation technologies were shipped worldwide. Therefore, the increasing demand for automated warehouses is driving the demand for autonomous forklifts.
New product innovation is the key trend gaining popularity in the autonomous forklift market. Major companies operating in the autonomous forklift market are focused on developing technologically advanced products to strengthen their market position.
