Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the market is growing with a CAGR of 11.1% in the forecast period of 2020 to 2028 and is expected to reach USD 4,746.71 million by 2028. Increasing adoption of automation in different industries is aiding the growth of the automated guided vehicle market.
Automated guided vehicles also known as autonomous guided vehicles or self-guided vehicles are driverless vehicles that are used for handling materials or as load carriers in warehouse, manufacturing facility or distribution centre. Automated guided vehicles are used for various applications such as transportation of raw material or finished goods, for work in process, or lifting and handling of products.
Growing need for automation in various industries and manufacturing facilities is the driving factor for the growth of the automated guided vehicle market. The usage of the automated guided vehicle in industries and manufacturing plants reduces human efforts and increase the safety of the workers. The period to reach to return on investment (ROI) is quite long and therefore automated guided vehicle (AGV) is not suitable for short term period. Moreover, the high maintenance and initial investment acts as major restraint for the automated guided vehicle market.
The companies are providing their automated guided vehicle (AGV) systems to several manufacturers to provide automation to their facilities and lead to more connected technologies. The overall increase in adoption of industry 4.0 will create new opportunity for the growth of the automated guided vehicle market. The automated guided vehicle are continuously used during the whole process of manufacturing for various processes such as material handling, pallet lifting and transportation, however, limited energy density and lifespan of batteries can limit the working of these automated vehicles acting as major challenge for the growth of the automated guided vehicle market.
