Australia AGV Market

Australia Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) Market Size Expands at CAGR of 9.65% to Touch USD 337.3 Million by 2029

Published | 06 November 2023

Australia automated guided vehicle (AGV) market is flourishing because of the rising focus on safety, accuracy, and productivity and increasing demand for automation and AGVs.

BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated the Australia automated guided vehicle (AGV) market size at USD 177 million in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, BlueWeave expects the Australia automated guided vehicle market size to grow at a significant CAGR of 9.65% reaching a value of USD 337.3 million by 2029. Major growth drivers for the Australia automated guided vehicle (AGV) market include an increasing pace of modernization and globalization and rising adoption of the latest technology across various sectors. Notably, the demand for AGVs is on the rise, owing to their attributes such as flexible route mapping, easy implementation, high precision, and scalability. Also, the market is witnessing rising demand, primarily propelled by industrial automation, which is effectively reducing inventory damages and elevating material handling efficiency within production facilities. Another driving force is the continuous increase in R&D investments and the growing number of production facilities worldwide. For instance, Lactalis Australia is expanding its AGV fleet to enhance warehouse operations at its Lidcombe location in New South Wales. This investment in a fifth AGV enables increased automation throughout the warehouse. These AGVs can efficiently collaborate in different areas to retrieve goods, streamlining Lactalis' operations. They play a vital role in supporting the Australian dairy industry's growth, managing pallets in the warehouse, and ensuring precision and safety with sensors and laser scanners. The AGVs operate at high speeds and can handle heavy loads, contributing to the company's mission to promote quality dairy production in the Asia Pacific region. However, high initial costs and lack of flexibility and obstacle resistance in AGVs are anticipated to restrain the overall market growth during the period in analysis.

Australia Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) Market – Overview

Australia automated guided vehicle (AGV) market refers to the sector within Australia's industrial automation industry that focuses on the design, manufacturing, deployment, and utilization of AGVs. AGVs are autonomous, wheeled robotic vehicles equipped with navigation and control systems, sensors, and other technologies. They are designed to perform various material handling and transportation tasks within warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and other industrial settings without human intervention. The AGV market in Australia involves the production, distribution, and implementation of these self-guided vehicles, which are used to improve operational efficiency, reduce manual labor, and enhance safety in logistics and material handling processes across different industries in the country.

Impact of COVID-19 on Australia Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) Market

COVID-19 pandemic had dual impact on the Australia automated guided vehicle (AGV) market. Pandemic-driven advancements in navigation technology played a vital role in the development and adoption of AGVs for various applications, including warehouse management, transportation, and manufacturing in industries like food, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals. AGV manufacturers and service providers have shown a particular interest in four navigation technologies: laser-guided, vision-guided, natural navigation, and magnetic navigation. Moreover, the rise of Industry 4.0 has increased the demand for logistics automation. This has made AGVs essential in optimizing production capabilities, particularly in the logistics sector, where the need for efficiency and safety has surged due to the pandemic.

Impact of Prolonging Wars in West Asia and Easter Europe

The raging war between Israel and Hamas, a Palestine-based militant and nationalist organization, sends shockwaves across various industries, particularly oil & gas, transcending geographic boundaries and affecting businesses globally. The conflict between Israel-Hamas has been a longstanding, deeply entrenched geopolitical issue. On October 07, 2023, Hamas, in a surprise and heavy attack, struck Israel with thousands of rockets and infiltrations killing more than 1,100 people. In response, the prime minister of Israel declared war against Hamas and anticipated that the war would be ‘long and difficult.’ The United States has sent its warships and aid to Israel and stated that its citizens were killed in the war. The prolonging war in West Asia and escalating the Middle East will affect industries across verticals and regions. The Russia-Ukraine war also has been going on for more than one year. Energy is one of the adversely affected industries by the war. The Middle East, including Israel, and Russia are vital hubs for global oil production and transportation. Any disturbance in the Middle East region instantly raises concerns about oil supply disruptions, leading to increased oil prices worldwide. For example, oil prices increased by more than 4.5% or more than USD 4 a barrel in Asia trade on October 09, 2023. Brent crude surged USD 4.18, or about 5%, to USD 88.76 a barrel, meanwhile the US West Texas Intermediate crude was up more than 5% or USD 4.23 at USD 87.02 a barrel. This spike in oil and energy costs will have a domino effect on multiple industries. Companies in the Australia automated guided vehicle (AGV) market and owners of AGVs face the brunt of rising fuel prices, which significantly inflate their operational expenses. Volatile and higher diesel prices could affect the cost of production and transportation, potentially affecting industries that rely on AGVs.

Australia Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) Market – By Navigation Technology
