Global Logistics Automation Market Share to Touch USD 144.08 Billion by 2032

Logistics Automation Market Size Worth $144.08 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 15.90%

The global logistics automation market size is expected to reach USD 144.08 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Logistics Automation Guides Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Function (Vertical, Inventory & Storage Management); By Component; By Organization; By Logistics; By Vertical; By Software; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The rapid growth of e-commerce has led to significant changes in supply chains and logistics management, with a shift towards online delivery platforms, click-and-collect models, and curbside collections. To meet these evolving demands, logistics providers are heavily investing in technologies like warehouse robotics, sorting systems, and warehouse management software. Automation, facilitated by collaborative robots, large-scale conveyor systems, and automated storage and retrieval systems, is becoming commonplace in warehouses to enhance productivity. Additionally, the integration of cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics is gaining momentum, enabling more informed operational decisions.

Market growth is primarily driven by factors such as improved efficiency, enhanced workforce safety, the surge in e-commerce, the adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies, and advancements in robotics. However, the high initial investment may act as a growth impediment. On the other hand, the potential for the adoption of autonomous vehicles and drones, coupled with increasing demand for warehouse automation in emerging economies, offers promising opportunities for market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic triggered global government restrictions that reshaped workforce patterns and performance quality. It also heightened the demand for automated solutions as disrupted supply chains and movement limitations amplified the need for automation. The surge in online shopping resulted in increased sales, prompting companies to adapt their warehouse operations. To prioritize safety and health, organizations began integrating automation into their supply chain and logistics processes. Even post-pandemic, labor shortages persist, contributing to the expected robust growth of the logistics automation market during the forecast period.
