Automated Material Handling Equipment 2019: The North American Market

Dublin, Dec. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Automated Material Handling Equipment: The North American Market" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

North America's automated material handling industry is a highly innovative and aggressively changing landscape. This rapidly changing industry has many reasons for its significantly shifting nature. While many changes are being driven by suppliers seeking a competitive advantage with faster, more accurate delivery of a wider selection of products, change is also driven by a labor market in which it is increasingly difficult to recruit, train and retain competent workers. Very few in the industry see automation as a means of reducing the workforce; rather, it is partly as a necessity for dealing with fewer operators and as a means of improving conditions for their employees.

The growth of automated equipment also means that information on the equipment and its operation is now available in huge quantities. Working with big data, sophisticated computer programs have been developed to not only control this equipment but also to use the data for numerous beneficial features. The growing interest in the Industrial Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, blockchains and numerous other features are made possible by this automation.

An analysis of the significant number of patents granted and patent applications filed reveal important insights into the direction the automated material handling market is taking.
