DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 2, 2018--The “Automated Material Handling (AMH) Equipment Market by Product (Robots, ASRS, Conveyor and Sortation Systems, Cranes, AGV), System Type (Unit Load, Bulk Load), Software & Services, Function, Industry, and Region - Global Forecast to 2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The AMH equipment market is expected to reach USD 53.59 billion by 2024 from USD 33.46 billion by 2018 at a CAGR of 8.2%

The key factors driving the growth of the market include growing presence of start-up companies offering robotic solutions for warehouse automation, increasing popularity of AMH equipment among leading industries, significant recovery in global manufacturing, and rising labor cost and safety concerns. However, the high upfront cost of AMH equipment for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and high integration and switching costs are key restraining factors for the market growth.

The market for robots is expected to grow at the highest from 2018 to 2024. Implementing robots greatly increases the efficiency and productivity of manufacturing and warehouse operating companies. Moreover, the use of robots can reduce labor cost, protect personnel or employees from injuries, and provide a high return on investment. Such advantages are fueling the demand for robots in manufacturing units and warehousing facilities.

The AMH equipment market for unit load material handling systems is estimated to grow at a higher CAGR during 2018-2024. Unit load material handling systems involve appropriately sized items organized into a single unit that can be moved easily. It is a quick and economical method to move a large number of items in a single run.
