Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems Market Segment Analysis – By Type
The Vertical lift module (VLM) segment has held significant market share of 32.2% in the forecast period as it is designed to deliver stored items to the operator by eliminating walk and search time. In addition, this module also increases productivity up to 67% and saves up to 85% of the floor space. VLM is also integrated with pick-to-light technology to improve accuracy levels. Moreover, these systems can be used in collaboration with other material handling storage systems including conveyors, robotic work stations and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) to completely automate the facility. These systems make the overhead space into productive storage space. Further they have a small footprint and thus are perfect choice for point-of-use storage space in assembly operations and value-added manufacturing. Hence these factors are analysed to drive the market growth in the forecast period 2021-2026.
Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems Market Segment Analysis – By Vertical
E-Commerce sector in automated storage systems is expected to witness a highest CAGR of 9.37% the forecast period 2021-2026. Automated storage systems with real time inventory management capabilities has exhibited high adoption as they allow enough product stocking in the warehouses. Customized automated storage and retrieval systems have been favored by e-commerce vendors for their needs.

Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems market in North America region held significant market share of 40% in 2020. Rise in adoption of big data technologies among organizations to enhance the consumer target marketing and risk management abilities is expected to boost the growth of the automated storage and retrieval system market. Moreover, automation has been the forefront in the countries such as U.S. and Canada manufacturing sector. The rising infrastructure and industrial development allowed the automated storage system manufacturers to expand their penetration in these countries. In addition, the growing safety and control demand in industrial and manufacturing sectors in the U.S will significantly propel the market for these systems. Further growing wages will also result in a shift to automation in order to reduce the compensation provided to the workers. Furthermore, Mexico is turning into the manufacturing hub for many manufacturers mainly accounted for its low labor costs and its proximity to the U.S. Majority of the leading manufacturing companies are establishing their plants in the region. The NAFTA agreements provide these companies an easier passage for their production to the U.S. and Canada leading to increasingly advanced manufacturing processes being employed in this region. The improved productivity and efficiency offered by the usage of automated storage systems has resulted in their growing deployment in Mexico. Hence these factors are analyzed to drive the market growth in the forecast period 2021-2026.
Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems Market Drivers
Leasing of material handling equipment paving new avenues for the automated material handling systems
As businesses in the U.S. continue to increase spending on capital equipment, the leasing and financing of business equipment will observe an incessant growth. The cost of Automated Storage & Retrieval System in initial phases is generally high including installation, training and services costs. These high prices generally deter the small & medium warehouse operators from integrating the AS/RS into their centers, but the rising support for equipment leasing, evident from the European Law Faculties Association (ELFA) data has opened new ways for the operators to acquire these systems. Leasing of these equipment allow the distribution centers to reap the benefits of these systems including efficiency, quality control and lower operational costs while simultaneously realizing immediate return on investment. Hence, as the leasing of equipment in the industries becomes easily accessible, the AS/RS market will witness an up-surging market in the future.
Multichannel supply-chain strategy in retail to drive the AS/RS market:
The multichannel supply chain strategy is an increasing trend in the current times, particularly among the retail sector. Under this strategy, the companies are aiming at creating an “in-house” distributing facility for order fulfilment operations instead of outsourcing it to third part logistics (3PL). By building an in-house distribution centres, companies are aiming at handling both store and individual orders in a same facility thus saving significant costs on distribution performance. In today’s world, the retail distribution centres are not limited to as an intermediate phase for storing and shipping the goods. The rise of retail sector facilitated by the boom in electronic commerce has already witnessed major changes in the retail distribution centres including mass personalization and up surged customer services requirements which has led to an exponential growth in the stock keeping units (SKUs). As the global economy progresses gradually, the retail sector will observe a boost in the demand of goods that will require proper integration of new automation technologies to maintain demand and supply balance which will be a notable for the emergence of automated storage & retrieval systems market.
Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems Market Challenges
Delayed return on investment (RoI) model constricting the emergence of AS/RS
Emerging out of the high initial cost of AS/RS is the need to make profits. The costs for these systems have come down significantly in the recent years but are not enough to convince the small and medium logistic operators to compel them to install it. Also, the AS/RS return on investment (ROI) generally lies in the period of 5 to 7 years which deters market significantly. In long-term, the AS/RS prove to be a significant value addition product by providing several advantages over a manual labor in terms of operating costs and productivity but the initial skepticism associated with AS/RS ROI still looms over the strategies of operators, thus acting as a hindrance to the market emergence.
