Why is the Need for Intralogistics Containers Rising Rapidly?

“Surging e-commerce Industry to Fuel Demand for Intralogistics Containers”

e-Commerce has experienced significant growth across the world as demand is driven by increasing connected customers, enhanced e-Commerce platforms, and significant digitalization of the retail sector. Considering the region-wise development of e-Commerce, some underdeveloped nations are still lagging with incompetent infrastructure and represent a limited share of sales.

The intralogistics market has experienced a significant shift over the past decade due to dynamically changing end-use markets, including e-Commerce, and massive B2C volumes in courier and express transactions with increasing penetration of automation and technology.

The trends in e-Commerce that are affecting the intralogistics business are zero-defect objectives, seasonal peaks, reduced delivery time, bidirectional flows, and increased variety of parcel size and weight.

Intralogistics demand is majorly dependent on the e-Commerce industry as the market is rising rapidly and projects to be the prime end-use industry for intralogistics.

“High Usage in Logistics & Warehousing Purposes”

The rise of intralogistics across various end-use industries such as food & beverages, logistics & warehouses, retail & consumer goods, and electrical & electronics has provided a vital competitive advantage for companies to leverage the growth of the market.

Intralogistics solutions streamline the supply chain by minimizing errors, enhancing flexibility, and providing higher efficiency. Manufacturers are particularly focusing on robust plastic containers with a long life product cycle.

Demand has paced up for intralogistics as customers are adopting the technology with open hands due to its robust nature, availability, and collective offerings. In the longer run, intralogistics has a high capability to cater to the dynamic demands of end-use industries.

“R&D Initiatives and AI & Machine Learning Complementing Market Expansion”

AGVs are most frequently utilized in industrial manufacturing settings where they are necessary to move heavy materials back and forth within a facility. AGVs are already very advanced, but the addition of cutting-edge technologies such as machine learning and AI is further enhancing their capabilities and accelerating industry growth.

The reliability and productivity of manufacturing are increased by an ideal material flow. For many applications, AGVs offer the optimum compromise between efficiency and flexibility. Artificial intelligence (AI) industrial robots and AGVs will be able to outperform humans in a variety of environments, potentially reducing human error. This enables flawless deployment and optimal performance during material and container handling.

As such, global demand for intralogistics containers is set to grow 1.8X during the forecast period of 2022 to 2032.
