Increasing demand for robotics is expected to drive the material handling equipment market demand. This is due to the ability of robots to improve the effectiveness of the manufacturing plant and surge customer satisfaction by delivering quality products in a timely manner. It also aids in transporting objects from one location to another easily by fitting the robot with an appropriate end of arm tool such as a gripper. In addition, they also aid in tasks such as collision detection and conveyor tracking.

The industrial trucks market will witness significant growth over the forecast timeline. This growth is attributed to the need for recurrent flow of goods where the usage of a conveyor will not be useful. Furthermore, the loads carried on industrial trucks such as cranes have the alternative of varying the load based on the weight and shape which is not possible in conveyor systems.

E-commerce applications will drive the material handling equipment market size due to escalating need for faster deliveries to better cater to the consumers’ demand. Several vendors in the e-commerce industry are installing warehouse management system (WMS) to monitor the inventory levels and classify the stock locations.

The APAC material handling equipment market share is anticipated to witness substantial growth owing to the rapid industrial developments in countries such as China, India, and South Korea.
