Worldwide Automated Guided Vehicle Industry to 2030 - Featuring DS Automotion, EK Robotics and Nipper Among Others -

The "Automated Guided Vehicle Market by Type, by Navigation Technology, by Payload Capacity, by Battery Type, by Mode of Operation, by Application, and by Industry Verticals - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2022 - 2030" report has been added to's offering.

The Automated Guided Vehicle Market size was valued at 4.02 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach 8.66 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 8.9% from 2022-2030.

Automated guided vehicle are the material handling automated machines that are programmed to move carts, trays, and pallets in different warehousing and manufacturing facilities. The automation through automated guided vehicle (AGV) aids the requirement for material handling capacity, decreasing production time in the process.

Also, the chances of human errors in production decrease drastically, ensuring increased volume of production, accuracy, and improved safety. It enables computerized control of received assembled parts, in-time delivery of raw material, and tracking of shipped articles. Moreover, it helps store, distribute, and transport material without human intervention; thereby, ruling out the possibilities of injuries to workers and damage to products. Companies such as Walmart and Amazon are focusing on the automation of material handling process to reduce operation cost and increase the inventory size.

Market Dynamics and Trends

The global increasing demand of automated guided vehicle market is projected to be driven by rise in demand for material handling through automated solutions across industries. Also, the demand for automation is increasing in the healthcare, e-commerce, automotive, and food industries owing to the overall requirement for product efficiency. AGV-enabled industrial facility automation help to meet the required material handling capacity while saving production time and reducing the risk of human error.

Moreover, rise in urbanization, and significant rise in industrial production is expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the increase in demand for automation and automated guided vehicles in various industries such as Elettric 80, Daifuku Webb, and JBT Corporation along with rise in safety, accuracy, and productivity drive growth of the market in the upcoming years.

However, high initial investment costs and lack of skilled labor is expected to restrain the growth of market during the forecast period. On the other hand, the adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies in warehousing is capable of converting an industrial facility into an autonomous plant. It will combine the industrial automation solutions, computers, and robotics to form a single automated unit and the network of connected devices that can creates a smart architecture capable for making decentralized decisions. This is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the automated guided vehicle market players in future.
