DUBLIN, Mar 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Automated Guided Vehicle Market: Analysis & Forecast, 2016-2022 (Focus on Major Vehicle Types, Guidance Technologies, Applications & Industries)" report to their offering.
Automated guided vehicles have been used across different industries for material handling purposes, over the last three decades and have brought revolution in many market economies. Generally agv handles different materials and in-process goods in a factory or warehouse and move them to the desired location. The concept of automated guided vehicles originated from the industrial automation technology with an attempt to use dexterity and precision of industrial robots as a way to complement human cognitive ability and enhance productivity across the production facilities.
Automated guided vehicles are increasingly used across new industries like electrical and electronics, aerospace and defense manufacturing, with their adoption being an evolving phenomenon. Factors such as the rising labor cost and demographic decline in developed regions like Europe, have compelled businesses to increasingly rely automation for their sustenance. Therefore, the global automated guided vehicle market is estimated to reach $3,320.41 million in the forecast period.
The global automated guided vehicle market is segmented based on different vehicles, guidance technologies, industries, applications and demand across different geographies. Automated guided vehicles have their utility across different industries viz. electrical and electronics, automotive, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, plastics and polymer, and logistics and distribution. While the automotive sector has been an active user of automated guided vehicles, new industries like electrical and electronics and logistics are opening up to the technology.
Automated guided vehicles based on guided technologies like vision based guidance and natural feature based guidance can be deployed across multiple production facilities without any hassle. Hence, based on its use for different applications, the automated guided vehicle market has been segmented into transportation, end of line transport, roll handling, distribution and others.
