Automated Material Handling Market in Manufacturing by Product (AGV, AS/RS, Automated Crane, Robotic System), System Type, Operation, Application (Automotive, Chemical, Food & Beverages, Healthcare, Metal Manufacturing), and Region - Forecast to 2020

The automated material handling (AMH) refers to any automation that eliminates the need for human labor in moving, packaging, and storing material at the manufacturing floor. Automated material handling provides many advantages such as improved production quality, elimination of manual labor, reduced labor and manufacturing costs, improved safety and efficiency, maximization of floor space, and increased level of profits.

A key driving factor for the growth of the AMH market in manufacturing is that it can minimize manufacturing cost by reducing human involvement. Besides, several other factors such as increased number of manufacturing facilities, introduction of wireless power technology in AGV, and improved safety and working conditions also propel the growth of the market. However, there are some restraining factors for the growth of AMH in manufacturing such as high capital expenditure and technical glitches. The requirement of operational maintenance and relatively higher maintenance cost is a major challenge for the AMH market in manufacturing.
