DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 10, 2018--The "Global Forklift Trucks Market - Segmented by Power Source (Internal Combustion Engine, and Electric Motor), Class (Class I, Class II, Class III, and Class IV), End-user, and Region - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The forklift trucks market was is expected to register a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period (2018-2023).

Forklift Trucks are one of the most common material handling equipment in the market. Although there are a high number of automated solutions arriving in the market the demand for manual internal combustion (IC) and electric forklifts has not dwindled. In fact, the increasing demand from Europe and Asia Pacific region is expected to further raise the sales of these units over the forecast period.

While the tremendous demand from the retail industry, especially from the e-commerce sector, is driving the forklift trucks market headlong, lack of skilled labor and advent of automated guided vehicles (close substitutes to forklift trucks) pose a significant challenge to the market, hindering the growth.

However, in the current market scenario, the low-cost forklift trucks often outweigh the high-cost automated solutions. But the increasing adoption of Industry 4.0 policies, increasing costs of commercial warehouse spaces, demand for ultra-fast deliveries, and logistics operations and declining robotics costs will undoubtedly affect the forklift trucks market in the near future.
