The automated material handling market in North America was valued at USD 7761.04 million in 2017 and is expected to reach a value of USD 12283.95 million by 2023 at a CAGR of 9.62%, over the forecast period (2018 - 2023). A growing trend for energy-efficient material handling equipment in North America has been noticed lately. Numerous factors play a role in determining the overall reduction of costs associated with energy savings. It is imperative to ensure that a facility’s fleet can run through full shifts without downtime due to recharging batteries. As a result, OEMs are constantly looking to increase productivity on smaller platforms. Despite posting sluggish growth between 2006 and 2011, the United States remains the most significant global producer of automated material handling products and is expected to see stronger output increase through 2016 as the domestic market conditions improve.

Strong Gains in Automated Equipment Demand to Drive the Growth

Substantial gains in automated equipment demand are expected to influence the manufacturers to shift their preferences toward the products that enhance productivity and are flexible for integration into automated warehouses. The rising efforts among end users to reduce labor costs, particularly in developed markets, such as the United States, are expected to impact the growth of AMH market. In the United States, around 80% of the warehouses are observed to be manually operated, 15% to be mechanized, and only 5% to be fully automated. This provides a long runway for the AMH market to grow faster than the industrial production.

Retail Segment to Lead the North American Automated Material Handling Market

North America is the second largest e-commerce market in the world after Asia-Pacific. In 2017 alone, the e-commerce industry registered revenue of USD 458.2 billion in the region (which include B2C e-commerce turnover in the US & Canada). According to the Global Powers of Retailing report, 76 of the most significant retailing companies in the world are based in the United States. With strengthening logistics networks and growing internet penetration, there is enormous scope for automation of this sector in the region.

The United States Dominated the North American Automated Material Handling Market

Rise in the per capita income in the United States has led to increased need for durable and non-durable goods, which is driving the need for an efficient manufacturing process. Thus, companies manufacturing both durable and non-durable goods are increasingly adopting extensive assembly lines in their manufacturing process to meet the demand for these products. The growth of warehousing and distribution centers also plays a significant role in enhancing the growth of the AMH market in the region. The mining and manufacturing industries, which are highly dependent upon AMH equipment, are also growing due to the inherent demand for power and minerals, leading to the growth of AMH in the country.

Key Developments in the Market
  • The Robotic Industries Association (RIA), North America's leading robotics trade group, signed an alliance partnership with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The alliance aims to enhance technical expertise in robotics within OSHA and NIOSH. It also expects to improve awareness of workplace hazards associated with traditional industrial robots, the emerging technology of human-robot collaboration installations and systems, and identify research that helps to reduce workplace hazards.
  • Honeywell announced the rebranding of its Intelligrated business, changing the name to Honeywell Intelligrated and revealing a new logo. The integration process has focused on ways to leverage complementary strengths to serve customers better and enhance the businesses. This includes developing connected solutions that enable customers to leverage data for higher efficiency, access to a broader portfolio of productivity, workflow, and automation solutions.
