The United States material handling market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.65%, reaching a market size of US$25.008 billion in 2029 from US$18.192 billion in 2022.

The growth of private investments in machinery and industrial equipment indicates an overall strong U.S. economy, which is regarded to encourage some activity when it comes down to the U.S. industry’s largest downstream markets such as that of wholesaling and manufacturing. Following such growths in private investments, the U.S. market is expected to witness a growth in the demand for industrial products which includes material handling equipment. Moreover, increased worker safety awareness along with the rising requirements for the management of bulk materials effectively and the rise in the industry with greater Internet of things use are a few factors that will allow the United States material handling market to develop faster.

Increasing e-commerce and logistics industries

On another note, the e-commerce industry is resulting in the manufacturers and industrial sectors in becoming more visible because of the feature of customization. The e-commerce industry is flourishing worldwide, which necessitates a lot of automation as well. Large-scale retailers such as Amazon, Walmart, and others are gradually on the rise of introducing automated technology into their operations in order to make it more efficient, precise, cost-effective, and even secure. Additionally, the improvements happening in the manufacturing industry are also regarded to be a major factor for the developing market of material handling equipment. Moreover, customization is considered to be at an all-time high with respect to online shopping. Mining equipment and customization systems are becoming common while assisting the growth of the industry

The AGV segment holds a significant share of the market

AGVs (Automated guided vehicles) are being highly adopted due to several benefits, such as reduced labour costs, lower product damage, increased productivity, and scale to support the processes of automation. These notable advantages have been encouraging various firms to deploy AGVs in order to accelerate the efficiency of their operations, thus driving growth in the market in this region. Further, the strong economy, with considerable port traffic, rising e-commerce activity, and key manufacturing indices, have resulted in significant growth in manufacturing, thus, driving the demand for automated solutions across the logistics sector in the country, which is consequently expected to drive the market.

Market key launches

  • In May 2023, three new electric forklift models were introduced by Toyota United States material handling (TMH), the industry leader in United States material handling innovation, expanding its already impressive portfolio of United States material handling products and services. A Side-Entry End Rider, a Center Rider Stacker, and an Industrial Tow Tractor are among the new electric products that are being introduced. These products give customers access to unprecedented efficiency, versatility, and best-in-class performance while putting operator comfort first. This product has an ergonomic control handle with multiple functions that allow the operator to pick and place loads while facing forward and maintaining a clear line of sight. Best-in-class turning radius and speed reduction during turns will also be experienced by operators, making it simpler to transport loads when cornering and suitable for a variety of applications.
  • In October 2022, Big Joe Forklifts, a material handling equipment manufacturer based in Wisconsin, opened an autonomous equipment division with the goal of offering straightforward, reasonably priced robotic forklift solutions with a quick payback period. The move is a reaction to the rising demand for robotic material handling systems that can handle labor issues and other operational problems in manufacturing and warehouse settings.
