Global automated material handling equipment market: Industry 4.0 and IoT

The global economy has been currently observing the adoption of automation across industries, which is termed as Industry 4.0. This trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing and other labor-intensive processes includes cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things, and cloud computing.

“Automation is necessary to integrate all the systems in manufacturing facilities. For instance, the breakdown data of each AGV is stored on the cloud and can be accessed instantly for analysis to decide the operation cost of AGVs. In addition, based on this analysis, predictive analytics can be applied on the data to minimize the incidence of breakdown,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on warehouse and storage.
