Global autonomous forklift market is projected to grow at an impressive CAGR during 2019 - 2024 on account of growing utilization of forklifts in various industries such as manufacturing, construction and freight & logistics for loading and unloading purposes. Autonomous forklifts are being increasingly deployed in warehouses and industrial environments that are not suitable for human operators. Autonomous or self-driving forklifts remove the need for operator, thereby driving their sales, globally.

Global autonomous forklift market can be classified based on level of automation, class type, fuel type, application and region. Based on class type, market can be segregated into class 1, class 2, class 3 and class 4/5. Class 3 includes electric forklifts, which are environment friendly and possess higher operational efficiency when compared with IC based counterparts, and consequently, class 3 is the preferred choice of the buyers.

The market for autonomous forklifts is gaining traction, globally, especially in Asia-Pacific. Asia-Pacific is the leading region in the global autonomous forklift market as rail and sea are the preferred channels for the movement of goods in the region. Factors such as growing demand for new airports, seaports and booming e-commerce industry are positively influencing the autonomous forklift market in the region.

The major players operating in the autonomous forklift market include Hyundai Heavy Industries Group, AB Volvo, Jungheinrich AG, Linde Material Handling, KION Group AG, Toyota Material Handling Group, OTTO Motors, Balyo Robotic, Crown equipment, among others. Major companies are developing advanced technologies and launching new products in order to stay competitive in the market.
