The Global Automated Material Handling Systems is expected to reach USD 15.48 billion in 2020, growing at a rate of 11.24% in the forecast period 2015-2020. Automated material handling refers to the usage of electronic equipment and automated machinery to manage the material processing. It reduces the human efforts for operations like production, handling, storing and shipping of the materials. Primary goals of AMHS are improvement of productivity, product quality, workers safety and reduction in operating costs, labor costs, manufacturing lead time. Automated Guided Vehicles, conveyors, computerized inventory systems, scanning and sorting machinery, robots in toxic environments, shipping and receiving equipment and etc. are a few examples of AHMS.

The Automated Material Handling Systems market has been driven by many factors such as rapid rising rate of automation adaption in many industrial sectors across the world, improved safe working conditions in industrial facilities, developments in areas like robotics, wireless technologies, flexible electronics, driverless vehicles and etc. The expanding applications of e-Commerce prompts the firms to react quickly in terms of outgoing & returns logistics and simplifying the ordering processes. Automatic warehouses as well as the distribution systems serve the logistic requirements of the e-Commerce sector. The increasing demand for variety of AHM systems prompts the manufacturers to focus for innovation to withstand the competition demonstrates a great promise for the growth opportunities in the industry.

The growth of Automated Material Handling market is being hindered by certain factors such as high investment and maintenance costs for equipment, rising prices and availability of equipment for lease and etc. However, the investment for automation is often considered as a technology upgrade rather than as a stand-alone application. The challenge for the end user is to choose the apt technology which suffices the business requirements and optimizing the balance between the cost and performance of the AHMS.

The study on the Automated Material Handling Systems market can be segmented by the following criteria: equipment, end user industry vertical, type of operation and geographical location. The AMHS market, on the basis of equipment is segmented into Automated Guided Vehicle Systems (Unit Load Carriers, Tow Vehicles, Pallet Trucks, Assembly Line Vehicles, Fork Lift Vehicles, Clamp Vehicles and others), Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems (Unit Load AS/RS, Mini Load AS/RS, Carousel Type AS/RS, Robotic AS/RS, Tunnel Style Systems and others), Conveyor & Sortation Systems (Belt, Pallet, Screw, Overhead, Crescent, Roller and Others), Robotic Systems (Palletizing, Pick & Place Service, Case Packing and others). Based on end user Industry, the AMHS market has been segmented as Automotive, Retail, Transportation & Logistics, Healthcare & Life Sciences, Manufacturing, Energy and others. On the basis of the type of operation performed by AMHS, the market has been segmented into packaging, assembly, Storage & Handling, Distribution, Transportation and others.

The geographical coverage of the Automated Material Handling Systems market has been segmented based on the geographical region as North America (United States and Canada), Europe (Germany, UK, France, Italy, Russia, Spain and Others), Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, Singapore and Others), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Venezuela, Columbia and Others) and Middle East & Africa (UAE, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, Israel and Others). North America has been driving the current markets and Asia Pacific region is showing a great promise of rapid growth rate in forecast period. The key market players include Daifuku Co.Ltd, Beumer Group, Kardex AG, Murata Machinery Ltd., FlexLink and etc.
