Report Code: SE 6697 Oct, 2018, by marketsandmarkets.com

Updated date as on-

[113 Pages Report] The AGV software market size was valued at USD 468.5 million in 2017 and is expected to be worth USD 1,046.4 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 14.14% during the forecast period. The base year considered for this report is 2017, and the forecast period for the market has been considered from 2018 to 2023. The major factors that are expected to be driving the market are rising demand for automation across different industries, globalization of supply chain networks and increasing adoption of on-cloud warehouse management system (WMS) solutions. The objective of this report is to define, describe and forecast the AGV software market based on offering, industry and region.

AGV Software Market

AGV software market , by offering, in-built vehicle software to lead market during forecast period

AGVs are controlled and navigated by advanced in-built vehicle software. The central system software is responsible for the management and intelligent assignment of transport orders to individual AGVs.

The increasing digitization with the introduction of smart technologies such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and big data analytics is expected to create a positive impact on the vehicle software market during the forecast period.

AGV software market , by industry, market for food & beverages industry to register highest CAGR during forecast period

The automotive industry has been one of the key users of AGV technology. Factors such as transportation of heavy materials, growing after-sales spare parts market, increasing levels of customization in vehicles, and the need to ensure availability of components during vehicle manufacturing/assembling are driving the implementation of AGVs in the industry. An increasing installation of AGVs has also allowed several automotive companies to offset shortages of labor and costs associated with retaining them. With the growing demand for AGVs, the related software market is also growing.

By region, Europe held the largest share of AGV software market in 2017

The leading position of the European market is due to the exceptionally high labor cost in the region which pushes companies to adopt automated industrial solutions to reduce overall operational expenditures. Flourishing manufacturing and automotive industries in the region are expected to spur the demand for AGVs and related software. These industries require highly sophisticated automation and warehousing facilities to sustain in a competitive global economy. Additional factors such as presence of companies with global warehousing and distribution operations, sustained growth of the e-commerce industry, and developed third-party logistics (3PL) networks are driving the growth of the AGV software market in Europe.

The highest growth anticipated for the market in APAC is attributed to the region's fast-growing e-commerce industry, booming manufacturing sector, and numerous planned installations of AGVs in countries such as China and India.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Increasing adoption of on-cloud warehouse management system (WMS) solutions

WMSs have become increasingly sophisticated in recent years. Now, cloud computing is transforming the warehousing and supply chain industry by enabling warehouse operators manage their distribution centers more efficiently. A cloud-based WMS provides a consolidated view of the movement of goods and allows all the elements in a warehouse’s operations to be seamlessly integrated, which allows warehouse operators to track inventory more easily and ensure that necessary stock is available to fulfill customer orders. If there is any unpredicted product demand, cloud computing makes it easier to respond by enabling quick communication with suppliers and staff to procure the required stock. Cloud-based WMS software solutions reduce the cost of ownership and setup time.

Increased competitiveness, profitability, and scalability, and ease of use are some of the key factors driving the demand for on-cloud WMS solutions, and thereby the growth of the AGV software market.

Restraint: High cost of implementing and upgrading AGV systems

The overall costs associated with implementing AGV systems is high as they have varied underlying infrastructural (both hardware and software) requirements. The high cost acts as an inhibitor for the adoption of AGV systems, which may hamper the growth of the related software market; the cost of upgrading an AGV software also acts as a barrier for the market. Many small- and mid-scale enterprises (SMEs) are not able to afford these systems and hence, opt for traditional/manual materials handling. Furthermore, steep implementation cost (incurred due to hardware and software setup, testing, employee training, technology support, etc.) of high-end on premise WMS solutions is limiting these solutions’ adoption among SMEs.

Opportunity: Industrial growth in emerging economies

Strengthening economic performance of countries such as India, China, Brazil, Mexico, and Indonesia have attracted investments into improving their industrial infrastructures, and these countries are witnessing a proliferation of manufacturing facilities (of both foreign and domestic companies). This is creating the requirement for advanced and sophisticated warehousing facilities to bolster supply chains, which in turn, has opened up new growth opportunities for the AGV software market.

Challenge: Need for regularly upgrading software

Modern-day consumers are adopting newer technologies and demanding increased convenience from product companies. The increasing dynamics of supply chains present a challenge for warehousing companies to keep up with new technological changes and evolving consumer demands. To boost productivity and efficiency of order fulfillment, companies are required to constantly upgrade and scale their existing AGVs systems.
