The automated storage and retrieval system market is expected to reach USD 9.18 Billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 7.37% between 2017 and 2023. The major factors driving the growth of the market include limited space and minimal labor utilization enabled by the adoption of new ASRS-based technologies, improved supply chain efficiency and productivity, real time inventory control at lower costs, and multichannel supply chain strategy in retail.

The report covers the automated storage and retrieval system market, segmented on the basis of type, function, industry, and geography. The study identifies and analyzes the market dynamics such as drivers, restraints, opportunities, and industry-specific challenges. It also profiles the key players operating in the market.

In terms of type, the automated storage and retrieval system market has been segmented into unit load, mini load, vertical lift module (VLM), carousel, mid load, and autostore. Unit load held the largest share of the ASRS market in 2016. Unit-load ASRS is a high-density automated storage and retrieval system that enables highly efficient, accurate, safe, and stable handling of full pallets, roll cages, containerized loads, and large items.

On the basis of function, the automated storage and retrieval system market has been segmented into assembly, kitting, order picking, distribution, storage, and others. Storage functions held the largest share of the SRS market in 2016, and the same trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Storage is a basic function of ASRS; it enhances the storing capacity at distribution centers as well as at manufacturing plants.

Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) Market

Europe is expected to hold the largest share of the ASRS market in 2017, owing to the significant investments in the automotive industry in this region. The ASRS market in APAC is likely to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023, as companies in this region have started realizing the benefits of adopting automation in their manufacturing plants and distribution centers. The increasing popularity and superior results of ASRS are also encouraging companies in APAC to adopt ASRS.

The requirement for high capital is a factor restraining the growth of the automated storage and retrieval system market. Some of the major players operating in the market are Daifuku Co. Ltd. (Japan), SSI Schaefer Group (Germany), Murata Machinery (Japan), Knapp AG (Austria), TGW Logistics Group GmbH (Austria), Kardex Group (Switzerland), Swisslog Holding AG (Switzerland), Mecalux SA (Spain), Vanderlande Industries (Netherlands), System Logistics Corporation (Italy), Bastian Solution (US), Beumer Group (Germany), and Dematic GmbH & Co. KG (Germany). These players have adopted various strategies such as product launches and developments, contracts, acquisitions, partnerships, and business expansions to grow in the market.
