According to a report published by Grand View Research, Inc.; the global automated guided vehicle (AGV) market is likely to reach USD 1.5 billion by 2024. Growing demand for automated process in industries, distribution facilities, automobile assembly centres, and material handling application in warehouses can propel the market during the forecast period (2014 to 2024).
Growing labor cost is likely to boost the market growth over the forecast period. The implementation of automated guided vehicles can be a one-time investment as the operating and maintenance costs would be less than paying labors. Industries across the world are focusing on increasing productivity and minimizing overall costs. Hence, most companies are implementing advanced automation techniques to improve operational efficiency and to avoid material waste. AGVs assist companies to optimize their processes and to reduce waste in whole manufacturing process. These vehicles can offer several advantages including better workforce safety and decrement in the production time and operational costs.
In automotive industry, the assembly line automated guided vehicles are extensively used for auto part and transmission assembly lines, where a product is moved from one manufacturing cell to another. The companies operating in warehouse businesses are expected to adopt these vehicles to improve their services and overall efficiency of their operations. The healthcare industry is also expected to boost the global market for automated guided vehicles due to rising demand for AGVs to move medical equipment and patient supplies.
