Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The increasing demand for Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) in the e-commerce sector primarily during the widespread of COVID-19 is one of the major driving factors for the market growth. E-commerce has shown a huge impact on conventional business activities and has transformed changed the way business is done across the globe. E-commerce is a giant platform that is continually growing owing to the increasing number of online activities in the e-commerce industry.

Moreover, in COVID-19 the e-commerce sector experienced an unprecedented rise because of lockdowns and social distancing norms by various regulatory bodies. Thereby, this has resulted in a spike in business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce and a rise in business-to-consumer (B2C) sales. The growth of B2C sales is mainly marked in online sales of household goods, food, leisure, and pharmaceuticals. 

The most suitable and competent way to process orders is to the adoption shuttles or mini loads that help in bringing a tote or case to a goods-to-operator (GTO) picking station. Numerous distribution centers work on the operator-to-goods (OTG) principle in which the operator must travel for getting the product. ASRS is generally a shuttle or mini-load system that can automatically carry products to the operators.

Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) eradicates the travel period, which boosts 25% more efficiency in extremely dense batch-pick surroundings and nearly 75% or above in a large distribution center (DC) while picking single-order in long distances. Thus, it facilitates e-commerce organizations to meet the increasing consumer demand in a proficient manner, which, in turn, augments the market growth.
