The size of the Latin America Postal Service Market is USD 5.2 billion in the current year and is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 2.5% during the forecast period. The market is driven by the advancement of technology. Furthermore, the market is driven by the increased on-demand delivery services.

Key Highlights

  • The Latin American postal sector is evolving in an era of fast globalization, technological development, and disruptive innovation. Furthermore, the market is likely to develop throughout the forecast period due to increased demand for on-demand delivery services. The rapid advancement of technology, particularly the emergence of the internet and smartphone devices, has changed the way the world communicates.
  • Furthermore, there is a significant opportunity for the expansion of e-Commerce, with companies appearing to enhance client satisfaction and revenue by utilizing Omni-channel services with connectivity between online and physical purchasing. Postal operators are adapting and changing their operations to satisfy the requirements of customers in the digital age, as well as rethinking how they communicate with consumers, agencies, and governments. Latin America's largest e-commerce economy thrived in 2021. That year, internet shopping in Brazil earned over 161 billion Brazilian reals (USD 30.63 billion) in sales, a figure that was expected to increase by 8% in 2022.
  • As the COVID-19 issue progressed and air transport interruptions increased, several postal operators made major efforts to offset the most severe effects of the disruptions in the global supply chain, and therefore in their operations. Some of these steps were just essential and mandatory follow-ups to government-ordered public health and economic measures, creating significant interruptions to business.

Latin America Postal Service Market Trends

The sector is being boosted by Automated Parcel Delivery Terminals

  • Customers may pick up their parcels more easily using automated parcel delivery systems. These terminals are frequently positioned in public spaces to offer 24-hour access and to receive or ship items. Furthermore, unique characteristics such as the ability to collect packages from any terminal or unit at any time are promoting the use of these systems. These alternative options have received substantial appeal among e-retailers and logistics organizations, which is projected to fuel the postal service market growth throughout the forecast period.
  • In January 2023, Cainiao, a Chinese logistics business, launched a three-year growth strategy for Brazil and established its Latin American headquarters in So Paulo, Brazil, which has also become the distribution hub with the highest degree of automation since Cainiao entered the Latin American market. Cainiao intends to open nine distribution facilities in Brazil over the next three years, encompassing seven crucial southeastern states. In addition, the firm plans to expand its local network activities in areas such as local logistics distribution, customs clearing, distribution centers, and smart express lockers. It intends to open 1,000 more package and food delivery lockers in ten Brazilian cities.
  • Recent incidents, such as the COVID-19 epidemic, have heightened interest in automated transportation technology as a means for businesses to assist customers with their purchases using contactless technologies. As a result, the logistics industry has advanced significantly by placing automated package delivery terminals on the market for contactless delivery of goods.

Drone deliveries are likely to strengthen the market

  • Growing technology improvements are a major trend that is gaining traction in drone delivery. Drones have grown quite common in recent years, as many individuals and businesses have fully accepted and incorporated this technology into their business strategy. During the COVID-19 period, contactless distribution increased, and drones played a crucial role in ensuring that companies and clients communicated as little as needed.
  • In May 2022 Speedbird Aero, a Brazilian firm that creates remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) technology (also known as drones) for commercial deliveries, announced a BRL 35 million (USD 6.66 million) fundraising round. Speedbird, the first Brazilian business to be approved by ANAC, Brazil's equivalent of the FAA, to fly RPA for deliveries, suggests that drones be viewed as a new, viable, and scalable logistics mode for enterprises, logistics, and health services. The startup's goal is to build an "environment of logistics via RPA" that creates employment, assists in the development of new enterprises, and assists firms in the delivery of products.
