Driving Factors

Robots are becoming more frequently utilized to improve logistics operations. Logistics robots have been an increasingly popular idea in recent years. Companies have invested in automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) to automate movements and different regions in the facility due to the increasing complexity of warehousing and the need for flexible and efficient operations. The rise in logistics robots is a response to the need to cut costs and streamline processes in order to boost competitiveness. Unlike traditional equipment, logistics robots provide the greatest efficiency 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in addition to the safety of the goods, the operators, and all other elements in the warehouse. Robots can be used to efficiently and quickly transfer objects from one location to another. They eliminate the need for human participation in laborious, dull, risky operations associated with various sectors such as warehousing and material handling. Additionally, the deployment of autonomous cars and drones, as well as increased demand for warehouse automation from emerging nations, are likely to provide prospects for market expansion.


Restraining Factors       

There is a lack of uniform governance standards. Logistics companies are focusing on increasing supply chain efficiency in order to increase profitability and viability. Common governance rules for the logistics business are required. Universal standardization in logistics management makes it easier and more efficient for each provider to provide the bulk of solutions in a single package. The lack of standardized governance standards makes it difficult for end users to fully automate supply chain and logistics activities, restricting the logistics automation market's growth.
