Market Share of Logistics Automation Industry
The logistics automation market is fragmented. The market comprises long-standing established players, including Honeywell, Swisslog, Daifuku, and Schaefer. These players have made significant investments in products and manufacturing plants. Although the new market players require moderate investments, they can sustain themselves only through strong competitive strategies.
In March 2023, Dematic provided the most recent automation technologies for KION's new logistics facility. The KION Group will likely utilize the facility to ship replacement components around Europe. The aim is to make customer deliveries more effective. Dematic plans to deploy a highly dynamic Dematic Multishuttle with 110,000 storage places and 150 shuttles for automatic storage and retrieval.
In March 2023, Swisslog's CarryPickmobile robotic goods-to-person storage and retrieval system was released. The new, updated CarryPickmobile robotic platform offers a much faster working speed. The mobile robots also employ a revolutionary lifting turntable that allows them to turn a rack or hold the rack stationary as it turns, enabling quicker and more adaptable storage and selection processes for goods-to-person solutions.
