Market Dynamics:

The Global Automated Material Handling Equipment Market is experiencing growth in various sectors.

The surge in demand for automated storage and retrieval systems in the e-commerce business due to COVID-19-

The e-commerce industry is experiencing a boom due to the unprecedented rise in the number of online shoppers post the outbreak of COVID-19 Consumers have turned to internet purchasing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distance restrictions, lockdowns, and other precautions were implemented. Business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce have increased as a result of this. Online sales of medications, home items, and food are all seeing an upsurge in B2C sales. However, such rapid expansion in the e-commerce business has put enormous pressure on companies to acquire and deliver a large number of products in a short period of time.

The increasing level of order customization and personalization-

As online shoppers' preferences for customized and personalized product orders grow, e-commerce enterprises are finding it increasingly difficult to fulfill complicated requests using manual methods. Moreover, customers expect the delivery of these customized orders at low prices and with the same delivery speeds as regular orders. Because of the growing popularity of customized orders, manufacturers and warehouse operators have been compelled to improve the efficiency and speed of their picking and sorting operations in order to achieve economic success. Additionally, because of the extra complexity, manual processing of bespoke orders increases the risk of mistakes. Robotic pickers, ASRS, AGV, automated sorters, and conveyors are examples of AMH systems that may assist handle customized orders more quickly while also lowering mistake rates.
