Global Horizontal Carousel Market 2017-2021

About Horizontal Carousel

A horizontal carousel is a range of bins that rotate on an oval track. Every bin has shelves which are adjustable to 0.75 and can be configured for a myriad of special and standard applications. An operator directly inputs a bin number, part number or cell location and the carousel rotates through the shortest path. Multiple horizontal carousels integrating a pod of carousels, are set up with the pick-to-light technology and an inventory management software, for better order fulfillment.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global horizontal carousel market to grow at a CAGR of 5.59% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Horizontal Carousel Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global horizontal carousel market: Kardex Remstar, SSI SCHAEFER, ULMA Handling Systems, and Bastian Solutions.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Dexion, SencorpWhite, and Modula Logistics Automation.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Introduction of voice recognition in picking process in horizontal carousel. Voice picking supports the requirements of peak seasons and the variable SKU locations in retail warehouses. Light-directed picking, now used in almost all the company’s horizontal carousels, includes voice-directed picking combined with scanning and radio frequency (RF) technology.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increased use of automation. Automation is expanding in the material handling process to save costs and reduce lead time. While Germany was the leader in the process, the rest of Europe and America are coming closer to Central European standards, followed by APAC and South America. The increasing use of storage and retrieval machines without the operator is one of the indicators of increasing automation.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Volatile steel prices. Steel is one of the heavily used raw materials in the horizontal carousel market. With signs of the global economic recovery, steel prices have started increasing. This volatility in steel prices can result in a drop in the margins of horizontal carousel companies. However, leading suppliers such as Kardex Remstar can pass on steel price fluctuations to their customers as many of them tend to accept fluctuating steel costs by using a special formula when calculating prices.
