Logistics Automation Market Growth & Trends

According to a DHL report published in 2018, 80% of warehouses do not have any automation support and are still operated manually, while 15% of the total warehouses are just mechanized, which means the warehouses use sorters, conveyors, picker solutions, and other machined equipment which are not necessarily automated. The report states that only 5% of total warehouses are automated. The trend displays a remarkable opportunity for the growth of the market in the coming years as companies are increasingly adopting automation in their warehouses, including autonomous robots, automated sorting systems, conveyor systems, etc. Technological development such as communication technologies, sensors, tracking devices, computer vision, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are aiding the growth of the target market.

The e-commerce boom is resulting in increasing adoption of automation solutions owing to the enormous volumes of shipments. The ecommerce shipment volume is growing exponentially by the year, and hence the warehouses require automation solutions to meet the short delivery timelines. The e-commerce fulfillment centers are implementing automated sorting and conveyor systems and highly benefit from inventory management and order management software. Moreover, the major labor challenges faced by the logistics industry across the globe are driving the demand for logistics automation solutions.

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of automation technologies such as robots, conveyors, and automation software, among others, in the logistics sector. The imposed lockdowns and social distancing norms necessitated the deployment of automation tools in warehouses and logistics functions. Although there were shortages and delays in receiving the hardware equipment during the lockdown, the market displayed a positive growth trend from 2020 to 2022.
