Automated Material Handling Equipment Market Outlook

Automated material handling equipment (AMHE) refers to a range of mechanical devices and systems used to transport, store, and manage materials and products in an automated and efficient way. AMHE includes a variety of machines, such as conveyors, automated guided vehicles (AGVs), robotic arms, and vertical lift modules (VLMs) that can handle different types of goods, from raw materials to finished products. The use of AMHE can help to streamline material handling processes, reduce labor costs, improve accuracy and efficiency, and increase productivity. Additionally, AMHE can improve workplace safety by reducing the need for manual labor and reducing the risk of accidents associated with the manual handling of heavy materials.

The global automated material handling equipment market size reached US$ 34.3 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 52.6 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 7.47% during 2022-2027.
