The global automated guided vehicle (AGV) market size is projected to value USD 9.38 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 10.2% from 2022 to 2030. AGVs have revolutionized how materials are transferred inside warehouses and production facilities. In industries such as heavy machinery, warehousing, automotive, and manufacturing, employee safety is a prime concern and AGVs reduce human intervention in tasks such as unloading, loading, and storage of goods, thus, ensuring employee safety.
Cutting-edge technologies such as Big Data and machine learning have enabled companies to have linked factories and allowed the adoption of automated material handling systems. This has facilitated effective labor management, flexible production processes, and better quality control of products. Furthermore, the e-commerce sector is booming and efficient material handling has become a vital part of operations for e-commerce giants including Amazon, Alibaba, and Walmart, among several others. Thus, the emergence of a vast e-commerce industry and the subsequent adoption of automated material handling systems are propelling the AGV market growth.
Lead-acid batteries are steadily giving way to lithium-ion batteries in the AGV market. Compared to lead-acid batteries, lithium-ion batteries provide a number of benefits. They weigh less and are smaller than their counterparts. Furthermore, they enable more charge cycles, longer runtimes, and faster charging. Additionally, AGVs powered by lithium-ion batteries can provide higher round-trip efficiency. For instance, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., a major manufacturer of cars, buses, and trucks, recently announced that it employs lithium-ion batteries to power its autonomous guided vehicles and requires no human intervention. These batteries extend the lifespan of AGVs.
