The industrial vehicles market, in terms of value, is projected to grow at a CAGR of 1.86% from 2016 to 2021. The market is estimated to be USD 13.45 Billion in 2016, and is projected to reach 14.75 Billion by 2021. The increased industrialization and setting up of warehouses to support hub and spoke model for various sectors are expected to drive the industrial vehicles market.

The industrial vehicles market has been segmented on the basis of product type (forklifts, aisle trucks, tow tractors, and container handlers), application, and drive type. In terms of product type, the aisle truck segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, as these trucks have low operational costs, and are reliable, efficient, economical, and battery-operated. These industrial vehicles are also eco-friendly and compact, which enables them to be used in very narrow aisles that forklifts cannot fit into.

On the basis of drive type, the industrial vehicles market has been segmented into internal combustion engine (ICE), battery-powered, and gas-powered. The ICE industrial vehicle segment is estimated to account for the largest market share, in terms of value, in 2016. ICE engines are preferred over battery-operated industrial vehicles and gas-powered vehicles as they have better acceleration and lift speeds and lower maintenance costs.

The industrial vehicles market has been segmented by application into cargo applications and industrial applications. The industrial application segment is expected to account for the largest market share, by value, in 2016. This can be attributed to increased industrialization. The need for industrial vehicles is also growing owing to the increasing number of warehouses for the e-commerce and manufacturing sectors.

The Asia-Pacific region is estimated to dominate the industrial vehicles market, in terms of value, in 2016, as it comprises some of the fastest developing economies in the world, including China, India, and South Korea. This has led to an increase in industrial vehicle production volumes over the years, with OEMs catering not only to the domestic demand but to overseas demand as well.

Industrial Vehicles Market

Restraints of the industrial vehicles market:

There is a lack of innovation and R&D for industrial vehicles. OEMs need to invest heavily in R&D to enhance the ability of industrial vehicles to lift heavy loads and to improve efficiency in order to reduce turnaround time. Automated industrial vehicles and customized industrial vehicles have a higher installation cost than other industrial vehicles. These vehicles have not yet penetrated emerging markets, which constitute a major share of the global industrial vehicles market. The high installation cost is one of the major factors preventing manufacturers from entering the Asia-Pacific market, particularly in countries such as India and China.

Toyota Industries Corporation is a major player in the industrial vehicles market. It is an industry leader in the production and sales of industrial vehicles. It has a strong product portfolio, with four material-handling brands. The company invested USD 543 million in research and development in 2015; this indicates its dedication to continuous innovation. Toyota Industries Corporation’s acquisition of the forklift business of Tailift Co. Ltd. (Taiwan) will strengthen its presence in China and Taiwan.
