Warehouse Automation Market Boosted by Accelerating E-Commerce Growth

New ARC Advisory Group research on the global Warehouse Automation & Control Systems Market shows that substantial order backlogs and strong demand from e-commerce fulfillment projects will enable the market to eke out growth in 2020. ARC expects warehouse automation demand to accelerate in 2021 as disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic subside and delayed projects are reinstated.

“The COVID-19 pandemic-related disruptions in the warehouse automation market have been surprisingly mild compared to those in other industries. Project backlogs remain strong, e-commerce fulfillment demand shows signs of acceleration, and maintenance business continues to provide stability,” according to Clint Reiser, Director of Supply Chain Research at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Warehouse Automation & Control Global Market Research report.

“Recent trends in warehouse automation subsystem adoption remain in place, with stability in verticals that provide essential items, expected acceleration in verticals transitioning to e-commerce, and some isolated declines in demand from businesses that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” added Reiser.
