The pick to light market is expected to grow from USD 323.7 Million in 2017 to USD 538.2 Million by 2023, at a CAGR of 8.84% between 2017 and 2023. The growth of this market is propelled by the emergence of advanced automated warehouses, growth of the e-commerce industry, and globalization of supply chain network. Moreover, pick to light offers error-free and better productivity operations and enhanced labor utilization. The retail and e-commerce industry is expected to capture the largest share of the pick to light market owing to the requirement of fast and efficient distribution of goods in this industry. Moreover, growing online shopping trend increases the use of pick to light systems in its warehouses for fast and accurate delivery of goods. Increasing competition among e-commerce companies has pushed them to offer same-day delivery and products at high discounts. Pick to light systems, along with other distribution center technologies, help expedite the order fulfillment process.

The global pick to light market is dominated by the manual picking method owing to its adoption for various applications in several industries, such as assembly and manufacturing; retail and e-commerce; and pharma and cosmetics. The manual method is cost-effective; thus, it has short payback period. Manual systems are simple to implement and operate. Moreover, their operating cost is also low compared with their sensor-based counterparts. Murata Machinery (Japan), SSI Schaefer (Germany), Dematic (US), Honeywell Intelligrated (US), KNAPP (Austria), AIOI-System (Japan), Turck (Germany), and Lightning Pick Technologies (US) offer manual pick to light systems.

The market for wired pick to light is expected to grow at a higher CAGR than for wireless pick to light owing to the benefits offered by the former. Wired pick to light systems are simple and cost-effective for picking process. The adoption of wired pick to light systems is high owing to their high ROI. Wireless pick to light systems gained traction in recent years; however, due to the wireless feature, these cost higher than wired pick to light systems.

Pick to light systems support picking and sorting operations from shelves to other locations. Light-directed picking and putting provide better productivity and error-free operations, resulting in enhanced productivity. Picking operations are widely used for order fulfillment process in e-commerce, and pharma and cosmetics industries. They are most suitable for piece picking and broken case picking of items. However, the use of pick to light for putting operation is expected to gain traction in the coming years.

Europe is an early adopter of pick to light systems and a mature market for pick to light. Europe held the largest market share in 2016, and it is expected to sustain its position in the coming years. The region has numerous manufacturing and warehousing facilities of various industries, such as automotive, aerospace & defense, machinery, and electrical and electronics. Need for highly customized automated warehousing facilities and the industrialization of countries in Eastern Europe drive the pick to light market in the European region. Fast-growing e-commerce industry, booming manufacturing sector, and increasing emphasis on domestic production by emerging economies such as China and India are the key factors for the significant growth of the pick to light market in APAC.

Pick to Light Market

One of the key restraining factors for the pick to light market is the requirement of considerable upfront investment for installation and financial strength for maintenance. Also, pick to light systems are unsuitable for heavy products and large picking areas.

Key market players such as Murata Machinery (Japan), SSI Schafer (Germany), Dematic (US), Honeywell Intelligrated (US), Swisslog (Switzerland), and Lightning Pick Technologies (US) are focusing on strategies such as product launches, contracts, agreements, acquisitions, and collaborations to enhance their product offerings and expand their businesses.
