The growth of the Autonomous Forklift Market is influenced by factors such as rising complexities for product handling, rising need for smart logistics, good return on investment, better space utilization, and growing consumerism through online platforms. Therefore, the autonomous forklifts market is expected to witness significant growth in the future.

E-commerce end use industry segment is predicted to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period.

Rapidly changing customer demands, increasing preference for online shopping, surging demand for shorter delivery times, and growing fierceness of competition among online retailing companies have raised the demand for automated fulfillment centers in E-commerce industry. Factors such as the ability to reclaim unused vertical space, increased throughput, increased accuracy, and reduction in returns contribute to the growth of the e-commerce industry. In March 2021, autonomous forklift maker Seegrid Corporation announced that they are searching for acquisitions to keep up with an e-commerce market that has been growing fast as manufacturers and retailers scramble to automate their facilities to keep up with the demands. The E-commerce industry is growing in rapidly throughout the globe. For instance, in Asia Pacific region, India has become home to major e-commerce giants such as Amazon, Flipkart, and Myntra, which are competing to gain market share in the country. Thus, the autonomous forklifts allow the easy movement pallets, achieve more picks per hour, reduce product damage, minimize labor cost, improve order accuracy, and reduce shipping time creating increased efficiency and adding to the development of the E-commerce industry.

Material handling application segment is expected to be the largest growing segment from 2021 to 2027.

The material handling segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to advantages such as adaptation to variability of demand and supply. Material handling forms a basic part during the movement of goods whether it be for Indoor or Outdoor type use that is in closed warehouses or open fields. Thus, its application in all the industries also makes material handling application segment as the fastest growing segment during the forecasted period. Apart from this, following the material handling application segment, warehousing application segment is estimated to have the second largest market share during the forecasted period. Post pandemic situation, the demand for stocking and contact less fast delivery of goods has increased to a great extent. Therefore, autonomous forklifts and other automated material handling systems are playing major role in the material handling operations in warehouses. Also, increasing product differentiation and reduction in pallet sizes will drive the demand for autonomous forklifts in warehouse applications during the forecasted period.
