What’s Driving Demand for Mobile Pallet Truck?

“Rising Wages & Labor Shortage Concerns Improving the Sales of Mobile Pallet Trucks”

The post COVID rise in labor shortages and concentration of employment declines in young workers is a vexing challenge for many countries, especially in the US. As per US Bureau of Labor Statistics 67% of total separations were reported fueling a growing labor shortage across industries.

The rising average wages and labor shortage issues can be overcome by the adoption of robotic palletizing. Warehouses and manufacturing plants are investing on mobile pallet trucks while struggling to find skilled labor. Mobile pallet trucks also reduce costs associated with restraining and re-education, insurance, illness or injury and compensation of workers along with improved operational efficiency. As a result, the demand for mobile pallet truck is estimated to witness considerable growth in successive years.

“The e-Commerce Boom Propelling Mobile Pallet Trucks Market”

With the recent pandemic accelerated growth, e-commerce industry continues to prove as a lucrative and vital part of future economy. With the growing e-commerce sector, demand for warehouses and distribution centers are also rising. Warehouse owners are focusing on boosting efficiency in warehouses and operational plants, reducing operational costs, and increasing transparency.

According to Shopify, a leading e-commerce company, the sales made from online purchases were 17.8%, while it is expected to reach 21% in 2022, and 24.5% in 2025.

With expanding e-commerce warehouses, the need for intelligent equipment are also rising to move products from one level to another safely. To keep up with the growth of e-commerce, warehouse operators are increasingly shifting to robotic solutions to improve efficiency and reduce time-to-handle. With more and more facilities increasingly relying on robotics system, mobile pallet trucks is expected to witness a rising demand in the coming years.

What Concerns Should Mobile Pallet Truck Manufacturers Watch Out for?

“High Initial Investment Costs to Hinder the Market Growth”

The initial costs of mobile pallet trucks tends to be higher than that of a manual version and can run into more maintenance issues. Moreover, the manufacturers that develop mobile pallet trucks currently are limited, making it costlier. High capital investment is required to set up mobile pallet trucks in automated facilities, which may discourage various end use industries from adopting advanced pallet trucks in place of manual ones.

Small and medium-sized companies have relatively small budgets and cannot afford to spend high capital on the maintenance and installation of mobile pallet trucks. Along with that since mobile pallet trucks are more complex, the maintenance will be expensive and time consuming. This will generate pressure on the end use industries to reduce costs, which will act as a restraint on the market.
