Warehouse Automation and Control

This Warehouse Automation and Control market research delivers current market analysis plus a five-year market and technology forecast. The study is available in multiple editions including worldwide, all regions, and most major countries. 

Warehouse Automation Market Driven by Accelerated Transition to E-Commerce

Warehouse automation and control (WAC) systems manage, control, and automate warehouse execution activities.  This research captures revenues at the sale and provision of services to end users and requires control system integration for inclusion.  Warehouse control systems include upper-level control systems and the subsystem or subordinate controls (equipment controls).  Automated material handling equipment (mechatronics) hardware, sensors, actuators, drives, and motors that accompany the equipment, facilitate movement, and link to the controllers are also included.

Recent trends in warehouse automation adoption continued through 2020, despite the global pandemic.  E-commerce growth and the associated fulfillment requirements continue to drive widespread growth in warehouse automation adoption.  Flexible, scalable automation is being adopted to meet these growing and changing fulfillment requirements.  Most notably, shuttle systems, automatic guided vehicles (AGV), autonomous mobile robots (AMR), and pocket sorters are being deployed for their flexibility, adaptability, sequencing, and throughput capabilities.   

Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Warehouse Automation and Control Market

Warehouse Automation and ControlThe COVID-19 pandemic-related disruptions in the warehouse automation market have been surprisingly mild compared to the pandemic’s impact on other industries. The COVID-19-related restrictions placed on activity such as travel, site access, and other forms of personal mobility and interaction have caused mild to moderate project delays.  At the same time, pandemic related disruptions have accelerated the growth of e-commerce for many retailers, and warehouse automation providers continue to experience strong demand for e-commerce fulfillment projects across retail verticals.
