APAC held the largest market share in the Automated Storage & Retrieval System Market

APAC holds the largest market share and growth in the Automated Storage & Retrieval System Market and is anticipated to reach $3.36 billion by 2023 at a CAGR of 7.41%. The growing demand for industrialization in this region, combined with increasing investment in industrial automation, particularly in China, is set to spur the market. The key applications in this region include Automotive, Chemicals, Food and Beverages, General Manufacturing, Semiconductors and Electronics among others.

The AS/RS integrates various picking and routing mechanisms. Thus, it is necessary to design right systems for them. It involves an extensive research process complying with the safety standards for various industrial environments. The standard specifications for the desired system are created in this phase.

Once these specifications are laid down, the designing phase deals with the development and simulation of a viable system. The prototypes are passed through various iterations until the desired result is achieved. This phase is also responsible for listing the required processing technology, materials, equipment and components in order to manufacture the AS/RS. The successive step deals with analyzing the pre-purchase specifications of the customers, gathered through marketing operations. The analysis again involves lot of research pertaining to the supply chain and storage capacity management of the customer. The next step deals with the acquisition of required components and sub-systems for the AS/RS post, which is manufactured and distributed to the customer. The following step involving installation and training, is an exhaustive process where the AS/RS suppliers create another revenue segment. After the end- user has acquired the requisite AS/RS, the manufacturers or other third parties offer all sort of maintenance and calibration services till the end of the product life cycle.
