Warehouse Automation Market Thrives on the Back of Skilled Labor Shortage

Over the past couple of years, there has been scarcity of resources in logistics and warehouse sector. According to US Bureau of labor Statistics, 244,000 workers in that segment quit their jobs in August 2022. This is attributable to the fact that major chunk of resources seeking white-collar secure jobs. This job trend has led to logistics companies relying on automation systems in their business process. E-commerce giant Amazon has been adopting automation in its warehouse segment to expedite the processing of orders and enable faster last mile delivery of good to its clients. As a result, labor shortage has indirectly influenced the growth of warehouse automation market.

Warehouse Automation Market Held Back by High Initial Investments, and Exorbitant Maintenance Costs

In the long run, adoption of warehouse automation processes such as automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) is expected to reduce labor cost and help in increase productivity. However, the initial investments in purchasing AS/RS are more expensive than hiring in-house personnel to operate them. For instance, installation of robotic cube storage amounts to US$1.5 Mn, whereas installation of unit-load ASRS would cost around US$1 Mn. Similarly, installation of multi shuttle and mini-load ASRS would cost US$1 Mn and US$750,000 respectively. Moreover, maintenance cost of these equipment annually turns out to be expensive specifically for small-scale industries or organization. Thus, high initial investments on installation as well as a maintenance cost is challenging to be endured by these organizations.

Warehouse Automation Market of North America Upbeat with Adoption Across SME Sector

With the biggest market share in 2020, North America dominated the industry. Numerous significant market participants as well as a number of small and medium-sized businesses are based in North America, which is encouraging for the expanding uptake of the warehouse automation technology in the local market. The market in the Asia Pacific region is predicted to grow at the fastest CAGR between 2021 and 2029. The expansion of the warehouse automation market in the region may be linked to businesses in Asia Pacific nations like China, and India showing an increasing demand for cutting-edge technical solutions.

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
