Industrial Vehicles Market Synopsis:


The global industrial vehicles market is estimated to reach around USD 38 billion by 2027, growing at ~3% CAGR during the forecast period.


The global industrial vehicles market is majorly driven by the increase in the number of massive warehouses set up by e-commerce companies such as Amazon and eBay. These e-commerce warehouses majorly require the industrial vehicles to stack large quantities of products and also transportation of the stocked goods from the warehouse to the end user in a cost-effective and efficient manner. The market is also driven by the increase in the use of battery-operated industrial vehicles with increasing awareness about the environment and with the government regulations for controlling the carbon-dioxide emissions from industrial vehicles. The increase in fuel prices is expected to boom the sales of fuel-efficient industrial vehicles such as battery-operated industrial vehicles. The increase in need of transporting temperature-sensitive products fuels the demand for refrigerated industrial vehicles.


The high cost of automation is hindering the market growth. Whereas, emerging economies such as China, India, Mexico, Brazil, and Saudi Arabia are developing smart factories in the material handling industry and growing demand for driverless industrial vehicles, creating growth opportunities for the global market.
