The global vertical carousel market was valued at US$1.478 billion in 2022 and is set to reach US$2.478 billion in 2029 at a CAGR of 7.66%.

Vertical carousels consist of a series of shelves that rotate on a person’s command and deliver selected items at an ergonomically safe and convenient height. They are used to save space when excess inventory needs to be maintained in small warehouses. Thus, the growing third-party logistics industry is augmenting the demand for vertical carousels worldwide.

The rising demand for processed food and beverages further fuels the demand for automated vertical carousels to cover the content with a dust cover protection panel system that reduces or eliminates dust and particulates in product storage. Due to the growing IT industry, vertical carousels also enable the manufacturer to track down the goods, limit errors and thefts, and thus reduce the costs of storage and errors. Likewise, large organizations' establishment of manufacturing facilities, warehouses, and factories has further paved the way for future market growth.

Global Vertical Carousels Market Drivers:

  • Growing emphasis on capitalizing storage density has propelled the market expansion.

Vertical carousels capitalize on storage density by augmenting the available floor space. They are taller in length than they are in width, meaning that they have a small footprint on the floor. Thus, they free up valuable horizontal square footage for other purposes than storage. Hence, vertical carousels optimize the overhead air space, also called “air rights.”

Air rights are always susceptible to being the most underutilized space in factories and warehouses, and vertical carousels expand the storage capacity without increasing the actual warehouse footprint by using the unutilized potential. Owing to their high-performance benefits, vertical carousels find high applicability in extremely small spaces for optimizing the spaces and resources.

For instance, hospital pharmacies are usually about 2,000 square feet in area. That space needs to be utilized for medication storage, and pharmacists and technicians also need to work there. SencorpWhite, a US-based manufacturing company that offers these solutions and services, has been able to mitigate the storage footprint in hospitals and pharmacies by at least 50% by replacing static shelving with these vertical carousels.

  • High-performance benefits offered by vertical carousels are expanding their market demand.

Vertical carousels also offer beneficial ergonomic traits as they terminate the laborious work that operators are required to do. They provide dynamic material handling alternatives for storage facilities and warehouses by offering automation benefits that reduce an operator's overall labor and time cost.

Additionally, when these carousels are used, operators do not have to tread the warehouse floor or use a ladder or man-lift machinery to access items stored on the elevated shelves. Such ergonomic benefits increase overall warehouse productivity, and with the ongoing adoption of modern storage technologies in storage facilities, the market is set to witness an upward trajectory.

Global Vertical Carousels Market Restraint:

  • Regular maintenance to constrain growth in the market.

Vertical carousels offer a much-advanced means of material storage and handling. However, they require regular maintenance to maintain optimum performance, which can be a financial burden. The carousels require a technician for the evaluation of the system and the inspection of the wiring, tracks, wheels, and other internal components. They further check the machine in motion, check the chain tracks, chains, and drive chains, and complete any necessary repairs. All these maintenance requirements attached to vertical carousels are thus expected to hinder market growth.

Global Vertical Carousels Market Geographical Outlook

  • North America will experience remarkable growth.

The North American region is anticipated to show significant growth during the forecast period and will constitute a significant share, fuelled by the rapid industrialization in major regional economies, namely the USA and Canada. This has bolstered the presence of warehouse facilities and factories, where vertical carousels are majorly used to optimize storage capacity.

For instance, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2022, the strength of private warehouse establishments in the USA stood at 21,287, representing a 6.4% increase over 2021. Moreover, the same source stated that the projected number of private warehouses in Q3 of 2023 was 22,124, which signified a 3.2% increase over Q3 of 2022.

Moreover, the region is also witnessing significant growth in other major end-users, such as manufacturing, retail, and food & beverage where storage facilities play an important role in maintaining product quality.
