The Global Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) Market is Expected to Reach $4.95 Billion by 2027

Dublin, IRELAND


Dublin, Feb. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) - Global Market Outlook (2019-2027)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

According to the report, the Global Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) Market accounted for $2.1 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $4.95 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period.

Growing demand for automation in material handling processes, the rising popularity of e-commerce and an increase in demand for electronics and retail products are some of the factors propelling the growth of the market. However, high initial investment, installation cost, and present financial crisis are restraining the growth of the market.

Automated guided vehicles are material handling automated machines that are programmed to move pallets, carts, and trays, among others, between different manufacturing and warehousing facilities without any permanent conveying system or manual intervention. Automated guided vehicles are installed by these facilities to enhance efficiency, which results in increased output, thereby increasing the profit margin of the company.

Based on the navigation technology, the laser guidance segment is anticipated to hold considerable market share during the forecast period as it acts as an electronic eye to skip the obstacles within the path and this technology is the most flexible system for vehicle movement and offers accurate navigation. By geography, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a significant market share during the forecast period owing to the rapidly developing e-commerce industry in several countries including China, India, and Japan and various initiatives by governments of several countries to support the development of the regional manufacturing sector or industry, providing lucrative opportunities for market expansion.
