Global Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) Market Size to Reach USD 12.45 Billion in 2032 | Emergen Research

Increasing usage of AGVs in the e-commerce industry and greater adoption of industry 4.0 technologies are some key factors driving the Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) market revenue growth

Vancouver, Aug. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The worldwide market for Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) attained a valuation of USD 4.80 Billion in 2022. Forecasts from recent analysis by Emergen Research suggest that the market is poised to exhibit a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.0% in terms of revenue throughout the projected period. Noteworthy drivers of this revenue expansion include the escalating utilization of AGVs within the e-commerce sector and the growing embrace of Industry 4.0 technologies.

The mounting utilization of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) within the realm of e-commerce is a pivotal driver propelling revenue growth in the market. AGVs are effectively employed in automating the intra-warehouse and fulfillment center movement of goods. Their application extends to transporting items from storage racks to packaging and shipping zones. Moreover, AGVs find utility in categorizing and segregating products based on their designated destinations or order categories. This systematic deployment significantly enhances the efficiency of the shipping process.

The advent of Industry 4.0 technologies introduces a paradigm characterized by the incorporation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation in industrial workflows. This transformational shift has instigated a surge in demand for AGVs and facilitated the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) within conventional manufacturing setups, thus birthing intelligent manufacturing systems. AGVs are embedded with sensors that collect performance data, which is then relayed to a centralized system through IoT infrastructure. Consequently, this real-time monitoring capability grants insights into AGV operations, enabling timely issue identification. This proactive approach, fortified by data acquisition on AGV performance and usage patterns, empowers IoT to predict maintenance requirements, thereby preempting downtimes and elevating AGV efficiency holistically.

IoT also engenders interconnectivity between AGVs and auxiliary systems like conveyors, robotics, and assorted automated equipment. This seamless integration fosters enhanced coordination and, in turn, augments the collective efficiency. The cascading effect of this orchestration is poised to amplify the demand for AGVs in smart manufacturing settings, thereby fueling the upward trajectory of market revenue.

However, a set of limiting factors dampens this growth narrative. Chief among these is the relatively higher cost of AGVs juxtaposed with their constrained payload capacity. Additionally, AGVs currently possess limitations in handling intricate tasks, which contributes to restraining the revenue expansion within the market.
