New ARC Advisory Group research on the Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS) market reveals that shuttle systems now represent the primary growth engine of the global AS/RS market. E-commerce fulfillment requirements are driving demand for warehouse automation, and shuttle systems offer the exceptional throughput, storage density, and agility that these operations require for success in today’s rapidly evolving marketplace.
“Although the installed base of traditional unit-load and mini-load AS/RS is extensive, shuttle systems and cube-based automated storage systems are experiencing the greatest growth. Shuttle systems are well-established technologies that are well-suited to the needs of high-throughput, highly variable direct-to-consumer fulfillment operations,” according to Clint Reiser, Director of Supply Chain Research at ARC Advisory Group and author of ARC’s Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems Global Market Research report.
“There is also a number of new entrants to the market that provide innovative hybrid systems, which offer the benefits of shuttles and robotics. These innovations are poised to accelerate the market’s growth,” added Reiser.
