COVID-19 Impact on Automated Guided Vehicle Market

The COVID-19 outbreak has exposed several challenges for the automotive sector. However, more than 80 percent of the world’s auto supply chain is connected to China

According to Fact.MR, automated guided vehicle market is expected to gain traction in 3Q of 2020. Manufacturers with heavy footprints in china will witness a lower impact than others, as china is slowly starting to recover already. On the other hand many companies are using the COVID-19 pandemic crisis to devise ingenuous solutions to enhance uptake of automated guided vehicles.

Automated guided vehicles are being launched in hospitals to care for COVID-19 patients, thus reducing risk of disease transmission among healthcare workers. Towards this, prototypes of automated guided vehicles have been designed to deliver food, drugs and medical supplies to afflicted patients.

Seeing their high utility, many companies are now being contracted to produce automated guided vehicles en masse. Most of these will be remotely controlled through the cloud. This will give an uptick to sales of automated guided vehicles in the near term.
