Material Handling market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.31% to reach a total market size of US$161.606 billion by 2022, from US$128.358 billion in 2017. Growing adoption of industrial automation solutions across various end-use industries is one of the major factors driving the growth of global material handling market. Owing to booming e-commerce industry, rising investments by manufacturers in the installation of various equipment at distribution centers and warehouses is also fueling the demand for material handling products and solutions across the globe. Stringent regulations regarding worker’s safety require manufacturers to implement material handling solutions in the hazardous work environment.

By Product

By product, trucks and lifts segment accounted for the bulk of the demand for different material handling solutions in 2016. This dominance is attributed to the shift towards automated lifts and trucks due to the expensive human workforce and growing need to improve operational efficiency throughout the entire supply chain. Increasing number of construction projects in developing countries is driving the demand for small trucks and specialized heavy lifting equipment. Moreover, booming global logistics industry will further push the market growth over the next five years.

Automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) will witness the fastest growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for automated machines and equipment that assist in reducing floor space, labor cost, and inventory levels to enhance productivity while reducing manufacturing cycle time.

By Application

By application, warehousing and distribution segment held the largest market share in 2016 and is projected to dominate the global market by growing at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Growing Global Third Party Logistics (3PL) industry is significantly driving the demand for material handling solutions. The entry of new startups in growing global e-commerce industry is boosting the demand for 3PL solutions, as they rely on other logistic enterprises as part of the supply chain. Thus, there is high demand for material handling solutions from warehousing and distribution segment of the 3PL industry to smoothen the entire supply chain. Airport baggage handling application will also experience significant market growth due to growing global tourism industry. Increasing purchasing power and improving living standards in developing countries have led to a significant shift towards air traveling. This has led to a rise in the number of air travel passengers which, in turn, will spur the demand for airport baggage handling solutions at airports.

By Industry Vertical

By industry vertical, the manufacturing sector is projected to dominate the global material handling market throughout the forecast period. Rising global manufacturing activities and infrastructural development, especially in developing countries, will spur the demand for material handling solutions for timely production requirements and increased productivity. Moreover, high labor costs coupled with stringent regulations for safer workplace is pushing manufacturers to shift from labour-intensive to capital-intensive production methods, thereby positively impacting the global material handling market growth. Healthcare sector will witness the fastest market growth over the projected period due to rising global aging population and increasing cases of chronic diseases. The increase in demand for various complex drugs and medicines and medical devices will require healthcare and pharmaceutical industry to opt for efficient material handling solutions.

By Geography

Geographically, Asia Pacific accounted for the largest global market share in 2016 and will continue its dominance throughout the forecast period by growing at the highest CAGR. Rapid industrialization and rising manufacturing activities in developing Asian economies such as China, India, and South Korea are boosting the demand for material handling solutions. Growing e-commerce industry in India and China due to rising use of smartphones and proliferation of internet connectivity is also fuelling the demand for material handling solutions for warehousing and distribution applications. The booming construction industry and investments in infrastructural development supported by favorable government initiatives and policies will further propel the growth of Asia Pacific Material Handling market over the next five years.
