Stacker Truck Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Market-Growth-Drivers

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Labor Shortages – On account of the lack of availability of manual labor in some regions has led businesses to seek more efficient and cost-effective material handling solutions, such as stacker trucks as they can help in reducing reliance on manual labor, which as a result the market is estimated to drive market growth. According to statistics, by 2030, there will be a global labor shortfall of more than 80 million people.

  • Rising Need for Workplace Safety – The growing demand for workplace safety has led to an increase in demand for stacker trucks. For instance, to increase operator safety, decrease accidents, and adhere to safety requirements, stacker trucks are built with safety features such as stability controls, and operator protection systems. Every year, over 2 million men and women worldwide perish from work-related illnesses or accidents globally.

  • Increasing Demand for Automation – It is expected that the growing adoption of automation in material handling operations has also driven the demand for stacker trucks. According to the most recent data, global productivity will increase by over 1% a year as a result of automation.

  • Growing Construction Industry – It is expected that the increasing construction sector across the globe has led to an increase in demand for stacker trucks, which is anticipated to drive market growth. For instance, heavy items such as bricks, concrete blocks, steel beams, lumber, and other building supplies are lifted and moved using stacker trucks. By 2025, it is anticipated that India's construction market would be worth more than USD 1 trillion.

Challenges

  • Presence of Inexpensive Labor in Low-Income Countries - The increasing concern amongst individuals for the availability of cheap labor is one of the major factors predicted to slow down the market growth. For instance, businesses may rely more on physical labor for material handling operations in low-income countries with cheap labor as firms may choose to spend less on equipment and more on hiring cheaper people, this may lead to a decline in the need for automated material handling machinery such as stacker trucks.
  • Slow Uptake of Modern Technologies
  • Safety Concerns Related to Stacker Trucks


Stacker Truck Segmentation

End-user (Retail & Wholesale, Warehouse, Logistics, Automotive)

The global stacker truck market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-user into retail & wholesale, warehouse, logistics, automotive, and others. Out of the five end-users of stacker truck, the warehouse segment is estimated to gain the largest market share in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the increasing demand for warehouses across the globe. The requirement for effective material handling solutions is expected to increase as warehouse space becomes more in demand to manage rising inventory levels.
