Autonomous Mobile Robots Is One of the Fastest Growing Markets ARC Has Ever Researched

Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are a form of automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) that can be implemented without any supporting infrastructure like markers or wires or magnets implanted in the floor or precisely located laser targets.

There are two types of autonomous mobile robots, solutions based on fleet management and solutions that rely on picking optimization.  Fleet management solutions typically operate with bigger payloads and route the robots from an origin to a destination.  Pick optimization robots integrate the movement of machines and people in a process flow designed to increase picking throughput.

This is one of the fastest growing hardware markets ARC has ever encountered.  The growth is fueled by the difficulty in hiring workers that want to work in warehouses or factories in North America and Europe, the increased flexibility of these solutions, the boom in ecommerce, and significant venture capital investments in many of the suppliers in this market.

Previous research on this market has not properly distinguished between solutions like Kiva robotic knock off solutions, which are not truly autonomous, and the new generation of truly autonomous robots.  Further, past research has grouped together fleet management and pick optimization solutions.  These solutions are very different and have very different growth rates.
