AGV Software Market Segment Analysis - By Installation

In-built Software has dominated the AGV Software Market as compared to the Integrated Software with a share of 79.5%. The central system software is responsible for the management and intelligent operation of transport orders in individual AGVs. In-built AGV Software works in accordance with single central system software which carries out all processes required in a warehouse. It offers ease in operation and maintenance with great accuracy and efficiency in transporting products from one location to other. With the increasing digitalization and with the introduction of smart technologies such as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and big data analytics in warehouse management systems, In-built software is expected to create a positive impact on the Automated Guided Vehicle Software Market during the forecast period. On the other hand, AGVs with Integrated Software are costlier than In-built Software which restrain their market growth.

AGV Software Market Segment Analysis - By End Use Industry

AGV Software is widely used in Logistics sector accounting for 33.5% share of the market in 2020.

AGV Software Market Drivers

Rise in Technology Advancement drives market growth

With the increasing demand for automation across various industries and rising adoption of on-cloud warehouse management system solutions, there has been a rapid adoption of Automated Guided Vehicles to handle monitoring and controlling feature by Warehouse Management Systems. With the advancing technologies, the developments of AGVs by Integrated software has been a major trend in the AGV Software Market. With the introduction of AGV Navigation Software and AGV Mapping Sofware over traditional AGV Fleet Management Software has been a recent trend in AGV Software Market. Introduction of Magnetic Navigation for various light-duty AGVs which typically uses magnetic tape for the guide path has been a recent development in AGV Software Market. The recent introduction of AGV Mapping Software benefits the Warehouse Management Systems such as maps-out the application area, makes a selection of reliable contours to ensure stable navigation, creates the routes and functionalities and translates all information into Fleet Management software.

Increasing adoption of on-cloud Warehouse Management System (WMS) solutions

Warehouse Management System (WMS) has become increasingly advanced in recent years. Now, cloud computing and IIoT is transforming the warehousing operations and supply chain industry by enabling warehouse operators to manage their distribution centres more efficiently. A cloud-based WMS provides a merged view of the movement of products and allows all the elements in a warehouse’s operations to be seamlessly integrated and monitoring features. This allows warehouse operators to track inventory more easily and ensure that necessary stock is available to satisfy customer orders. If there is any bulky product demand, cloud computing makes it easier to respond by enabling quick communication with suppliers and staff to procure the required stock. Cloud-based WMS software solutions reduce the cost of ownership and transporting time with the help of AGVs.
