Assembly line vehicles segment is projected as the most lucrative segments

Increase in demand for automation and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in various industries

In recent years, the adoption of AGVs has increased significantly as they are a reliable solution for material handling, which in turn results in increased production capacity of the industries. These material handling solutions are used to decrease the physical damages to the goods (usually caused due to human operators), and increase efficiency of the operation. Automated guided vehicles are adopted in almost all the industries such as logistics, automotive, food & beverages, manufacturing, and others. In addition, companies operating in the e-commerce industry in India are adopting automated guided vehicle for enhance productivity and reduced labor cost. For instance, Flipkart is using artificial intelligence (AI) powered bots that enable bots and humans to work together efficiently. Around 350 AI-powered bots – monikered Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) assist operators to process almost 4,500 shipments per hour at twice the speed with remarkable accuracy. Further, company claims that with the adoption of these bots the throughput and storage capacity has doubled as well. Thus, increasing demand for automation and automated guided vehicles is driving the growth of the market.

Inductive guidance segment is projected as the most lucrative segments

Increase in safety, accuracy and productivity

Automated guided vehicles are designed with a focus on safety as the first priority and are equipped with lasers, cameras, and others sensors that allow these vehicles to safely operate with workers as well as with the structures. However, some vehicles such as forklifts, rely on human inputs and are not equipped with safety features. Thus, there is always a potential danger that the operator is distracted or tired and thereby, causes an accident. This can be avoided by adopting automated guided vehicle. In addition, when personnel are replaced with AGV, potential inaccurate workflow is reduced, which in turn results in increased, productive, and accurate output. Further, integration of AGV allows continuous flow of operation with streamlined processes. Thus, increase in safety, accuracy, and productivity offered by automated guided vehicles in the warehouse is boosting the growth of automated guided vehicle in India.

Storage segment is projected as the most lucrative segments

High initial investment cost

Adoption of automated guided vehicle by the company increases the profitability of an operation by reducing the labor cost and increasing the productivity. Purchasing an AGV in short duration is estimated to be more expensive as compared to hiring personnel for labor or using other human operated equipment. Profitability due to adoption of automated guided vehicle can be realized by the company in longer term. In addition, automated guided vehicle is projected to undergo routine maintenance and repair, which will result in some operational downtime. Thus, it can be burdensome on smaller operations that may not have readily available access to capital. Therefore, high initial investment cost and maintenance cost is anticipated to hinder the growth of the automated guided vehicle market in India.

Incorporation of industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 can be defined as the new phase in the industrial revolution that is highly focused on automation, interconnectivity, real time data, and machine learning. Industry 4.0 is also referred as smart manufacturing and operations with smart digital technology to create a better connected ecosystem for companies focused on manufacturing and supply chain management. Adoption of automated guided vehicle in industry 4.0 will enhance the safety at the warehouse and will allow the companies with higher level of lean manufacturing. Also, it will increase the productivity and profitability of the companies with significant reduction in the long term labor cost. Further, the overall adoption of industry 4.0 by the companies is significantly low and holds a potential opportunity for the AGV market players. Thus, manufacturing of automated guided vehicles with a focus on incorporation of industry 4.0 is anticipated to provide a remarkable growth opportunity for the players operating in the India automated guided vehicle market.
