Market Synopsis

Material Handling Equipment Market

Industrial Trucks & Forklifts to Drive Away the Top Spot

Industrial truck and forklifts are the indivisible part of any major manufacturing plant as they carry heavy load on the shop floor much faster than human material handlers. This equipment also plays a vital role in inventory control and warehouse management. Being a major part of material handling, industrial trucks and forklift acquire the majority of market share in overall material handling equipment market. The truck & forklift is closely followed by conveyors in terms of market value. Conveyors are the most common material handling system available and an essential component for unattended material transit within the manufacturing unit. Other equipment including cranes & hoist, pallets, racks, and shelves also claim a fair share in the overall market. Automated material handling equipment is the fastest growing equipment and projected to grow leaps and bounds in coming years. Major manufacturers and robotic companies are focusing on improving automated material handling devices and the sub-segment expected to takeover tradition equipment during and beyond forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Material Handling Equipment Market

Automotive and Manufacturing & Processing Faces each other for the Pinnacle Position
