AGV's & AMR's Lead the Way in Warehouse Automation Growth
Robotics looks to be at the forefront of the rapid expansion of the warehouse automation market over the next 5 years a new study has found. Research from Frost & Sullivan’s Opportunities of Autonomous Delivery Robots in Warehouse Management report has forecast the automated guided vehicles (AGV) to hit $4.6 billion while the autonomous mobile robot (AMR) segment is expected to reach $6.8 billion by 2025 globally. Despite this, the study has also warned that organisations must be wary of the maintenance costs associated with purchasing these products in addition to the difficulty of adapting in such a short space of time. In order to ensure this technology is reliable and improves the efficiency of the supply chain, partnerships need to be formed by software and hardware developers to fully support their clients. This is another indication in the shift of the job market across the supply chain with the likelihood for more demand of technical and IT based positions within warehousing.
