An Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) is a vehicle that consists of one or more computer controlled wheel based load carriers that run on the plant floor without the need for an on board operator or driver. AGVs are bringing about a disruptive change in the material handling industry market due to their high flexibility, cost effectiveness and efficiency over human counterparts. Since their inception in 1953, the global AGV market has grown steadily over the years and was at $1.53 billion in 2014 (including software, systems engineering and peripherals).

This report is deep-dive into the Global AGV hardware market and comprehensively showcases data in the form of unique info-graphic elements. The global AGV market has been segmented on the basis of Guidance systems used, AGV product type, supply-chain segments, applications, payload capacities and a detailed geographical segmentation with a country-wise fourth level sub-segmentation.

Other key features of the report include a detailed competitor intelligence, key opportunities, analysis of the robotics value chain and an Analyst Impact Center (AIC) section which provides answers to key strategical questions focused on stakeholders in the market.
