Growing e-commerce Sector and Benefits of AGV Technology Further Fueling the Expansion of US Warehouse Automation Market, According to Industry Experts
Indianapolis, Los Angeles — Even after the virus’s spread, the United States warehouse automation market grew favourably in 2020. Over the period of 2018–2022, the US warehouse market’s revenue increased by USD 3.55 billion at a double-digit CAGR.
By 2023, it is expected that the global market for warehouse automation technology which includes robotics, logistics, palletizing, sorting, and other technologies will be worth USD 21.7 billion. The market for automating warehouses will grow as more organisations and procedures adopt automation.
The United States Warehouse Automation Market
Presently, more than 80% of warehouses lack automation. Comparatively, only 5% of warehouses use sophisticated automation technologies and procedures, and only 15% of warehouses are automated. As a result, the ecosystem of warehousing automation has a considerable market potential.
COVID-19 is a Driver of The Need for Automation
The COVID-19 pandemic’s most significant direct effect on business was the shift of consumers to online shopping, which increased demand for eCommerce warehouse and distribution services. Warehouses had to contend with their own labor shortages, supply chain issues, and transportation problems in addition to trying to meet rising demand, which caused a variety of ongoing challenges. For warehouses to thrive in a constantly changing and unexpected environment, flexibility is essential. The pandemic has compelled businesses to review and restructure their logistics systems. Also, a lot of people elect to use warehouse automation technologies.
Techniques for Automating Warehouses in Response to COVID-19
Robots that collaborate: Cobots, or collaborative robots, work alongside humans in warehouses to increase output, speed, and error reduction. These techniques increased warehouse productivity by 30%, per a Darex study. Cobots can be used in warehouses for operations, including picking, packing, inspecting, and palletizing.
Automatic guided vehicles and autonomous mobile robots: Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) work independently in warehouses. They use sensors that decode and understand their environment to accomplish this. Automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) go along established paths with an operator on board. Both AMRs and AGVs are used in warehouses to complete laborious, repetitive tasks.
Key Facts of the United States

Market Competition in the US Warehouse Automation Industry
Dematic, Daifuku, Honeywell Intelligrated, Omron Adept Technologies, Invia Robotics, KUKA AG, Vanderlande Industries, Knapp AG, Swisslog Holding AG, SSI Schaefer Locus Robotics, and Fetch Robotics Inc. are key companies covered in the US warehouse automation industry.
Dematic is still the top business in the US, followed by Daifuku and other businesses. Sales also showed the effects of the decrease in investments in the semiconductor and flat-panel industries, although Daifuku is experiencing an increase in projects from the e-commerce business and a spike in revenue in line with the larger-scale systems being demanded.
