    • Owing to growing rates of quality space absorption spurred on by e-commerce activity, occupier demand for logistics continues to be dominant. The norm for new logistics facilities has indeed been occupants' interest on sustainability and their demand for spaces integrating energy-saving devices and solar panels. The continued high demand for last-mile facilities is expected to drive increased uptake in the upcoming quarters. Due to inflationary tensions and rising construction costs, rents are under pressure to increase

    Warehousing Services Market Drivers and Constraints

    Key advancement in robotics and IoT will be driving automated truck loading and unloading product/equipment market in the future. High initial cost of investment required for developing automated truck loading system is expected to hamper the Automated Truck Loading System market growth.


    • Cost Benefit: Lower labor requirement, improved efficiency in logistic through automated loading system, and quick return on investment have been the key reasons for the growing demand. Exponential increasing labor cost in APAC and Europe makes it more desirable for manufactures

    • Favorable government initiatives helping in the growth for automated material handling systems: Government incentives, such as low-interest loans, tax relief, and land rental incentives do support the domestic manufacturers

    • Competition within the Industry: Emergence of large number of small to mid-size manufacturing and integrators in the market with superior service capabilities are challenging existing players to be more innovative and productive. Buyers are gaining more power to leverage negotiations

    • Impact of digitalization: Robotics and IoT, the key drivers of logistics industry, which has encouraged warehousing practices of many manufacturing, retail and e-commerce companies. The advancement in the field will encourage more manufacturers to adopt automated system for better execution and monitoring


    • Costs: Initial investment costs are too high, which restricts the adoption of such system

    • Competition from global supplier: The global players do dominate the ATLS market, due to their advanced equipment and upgraded features. Local manufactures though have good knowledge on technology and standalone fall short, in terms of providing end-to-end solution to client

    • Complexity in implementation is a major constraint

    Material Handling Equipment: Global Market Overview

    • The global material handling market size is estimated at $56.69 Billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $97.77 Billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.52 percent during the forecast period 2021-2026

    • Asia accounted for 46 percent of the global material handling equipment market, followed by Europe (34 percent) and North America (18 percent)

    • The APAC market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.37 percent between 2021 and 2026

    • The major players in this Industry include Dematic, Daifuku, Swisslog, Honeywell, Jungheinrich, Muratec, Knapp AG, TGW, Kardex, Mecalux, Beumer Group, SSI Schafer, Vanderlande, Witron

    • The industrial sector in North America, Europe, and Australia is witnessing a fast growth, with an increasing number of companies implementing robots and automated solutions for material handling

    • Major players are engaged in mergers/acquisitions and collaborations or partnerships to enhance their market presence and expand their product portfolio. For instance, recently, the acquisition of Vega Conveyors & Automation and Australia-based InterSystems by Daifuku in late 2019

    • Coming out of this pandemic, there is an expectation that companies possibly spend more to automate their operations. This optimistic outlook depends on the health of companies emerging from the pandemic and the amount of capital spend available for projects

    Automatic Truck Loading/Unloading Systems (ATLS)

    • Fully automatic loading and unloading always requires two combined systems:

    –System in the truck or trailer

    –Fixed installation on the loading platform or in the warehouse

    • Truck loading conveyors and automated solutions allow increased efficiency. By adding elevators, lift platforms, turntables, and conveyors, which interface with the automatic loading and unloading systems, the rate of truck turns increases dramatically

    Cost Structure Analysis : Warehousing Services

    • The main driving factor behind this increase in wage is because of supply demand imbalance in the labor market with increasing demand for warehouse workers during the pandemic and shortage or reduced workforce due to safety norms

    • The second major cost driver being the rental rate is expected to be on the rising trend, due to increasing demand for quality warehouse space owing to pandemic effect
