Mechanical systems that are used for storage, control, and protection of goods in the process of industrial manufacturing are termed as material handling machinery. Positioning equipment, transport equipment, storage equipment, and unit load formation equipment are the major four categories of material handling machines. Material handling machinery helps in cost cutting, improves quality at workplace, and aims at reducing the waste generation. These material handling machineries operates in intricate environment without any human labor.
Increasing demand for automated solutions in several industries and upsurge in ecommerce industry are the major driving factors for the growth of material handling machinery market. Moreover, the growing focus towards labor safety is also one of the factors augmenting the growth of material handling machinery. However, increased equipment and maintenance cost is the major restraining factors for the market. Also, the increase in steel prices and lack of skilled labor hampers the market growth for material handling machinery. Nevertheless, the increasing demand for personalized automated guided vehicle (AGV) provides major growth opportunities for manufacturers of material handling machinery.
