The Japan automated material handling equipment market size was valued at $4,270.0 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $10,342.8 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 9.2% from 2021 to 2030. Automated material handling systems are computer-controlled systems that help the transportation of materials safely, on schedule and at a reduced cost. They help to increase the efficiency of transportation, storage, and retrieval of materials. For instance, automated guided vehicles use embedded floor wires to steer autonomous vehicles to various locations in the plant. The importance of the automated material handling equipment industry in Japan is growing at an exponential rate because managing the manufacturing plant has become an essential operation. 

Robotics, wireless technologies, and autonomous vehicles are widely utilized to handle several items simultaneously while lowering the number of trips and time necessary for loading and unloading. These factors increase the demand for automated material handling systems in Japan. Furthermore, there is an increase in the need for automation in industries such as e-commerce, automotive, and food & beverages due to lower operating costs, enhanced supply chain processes, and lower labor expenses. However, high initial installation cost of automated material handling equipment, on the other hand, constitutes a significant challenge to Japan automated material handling equipment market development.

Analyst Review

Automated material handling equipment is widely used across manufacturing and warehousing units with the goal of reducing downtime and labour costs, combining manufacture, transportation, and distribution effectively, and producing an early and high return on investment. Furthermore, because of the growing need for customized product orders, the market for system as an online service is projected to expand in Japan. It became difficult for e-commerce businesses to handle complex orders using manual methods in order to satisfy consumers' demands for low pricing and quick delivery. The rising popularity of customized orders has prompted warehouse operators and manufacturers to improve the overall speed and efficiency of their operations in order to meet their objectives.

Various key players of Japan are expanding their business to improve their products and services portfolio and to strengthen its foothold in market.  For instance, in November 2019, Okura Yosoki has expanded its business by opening fourth production facilities in Japan. It is specialized in producing sophisticated conveyor systems such as Unicon V, flag ship range for logistic applications.

These new products are more technologically sophisticated and work more efficiently and effectively than their prior product line. Hence, and they are extensively employed in several end user industries.
