Considering the impact of COVID pandemic, M14 Intelligence closely revaluated the industries challenges and market growth opportunities in short term i.e., for 2021 and 2022. 

The global warehouse automation market has grown by almost 11 percent in 2019 and experienced a serious fall by 6 percent in 2020. However, the updated estimates show the market is expected to bump back by more than 35 percent growth rate by the end of 2021. The global warehouse automation market is expected to grow by more than 10 percent on compounded growth rate figures to reach close to $40 billion by 2030. The warehouse mobile robots’ market which was valued at $1.9 billion in 2020 is expected to witness jump of 47 percent in this year with total value increasing to $2.8 billion. While the mobile robots’ shipments which includes AMRs and AGVs is expected to cross 80,000 units in 2021.

Warehouse Automation Market Size, 2019 -2030 with Number of Warehouses - Automated, Mechanized, and Manually Operated

Mobile Robots - AMR and AGV Market Size in Warehouse Automation, 2019-2030

With the growth of e-commerce and omnichannel fulfillment, the demand for increasing volume of automation in warehouses has increased exponentially in recent years. Warehousing operators are increasingly adopting optimization of supply chain technologies to boost their capabilities in order to improve overall customer experience. Mobile robots such as AMRs are increasingly becoming popular for optimizing fulfillment operations. 

Besides there is an emergence of robots-as-a-service (RaaS) model for AMR deployment which allows organizations to effectively balance their capital expenditure (CapEx) and operational expenditure (OpEx) strategies for effectively managing varying warehousing needs amid fluctuating demand scenarios throughout the year. RaaS model promotes OpEx based approach to address temporary or seasonal demands and provides immediate ROI. 

AMR vendors are proving RaaS business model that includes subscription-based payment, include maintenance and support service, may consist of remote monitoring and offer flexibility to scale up consumption with changing business needs. RaaS is expected to play a major role in the overall growth of mobile robots’ market in mid and long term for warehousing industry.

Adoption of AI, machine learning, and automation together is amongst the most significant trends in the development and future growth of the warehousing industry. Machine learning and AI are expected to drive the next generation of supply chain management solutions with the emergence of self-aware platform integrating human, data, and technologies.

Total Capital Investments, Deal, and Type of Investments in Last 5 years in the Warehouse Automation

Mapping, localization, and obstacle avoidance technologies are enabling autonomous functions of the warehouse automation. AMR and AGVs integrated with such technologies that includes LiDAR, radar, and image processing units are expected to lead the growth of the automation in warehousing. The market for LiDAR is expected to grow from just $xx million in 2020 to more than $xx billion in the next 5 years which shows the huge potential for the LiDAR players that lies in the warehouse automation industry.
