Another key trend is the increase in M&A, which will propel demand for warehouse services during the forecast period.”

According to the report, market growth is driven by increased demand for the outsourcing of warehouse services. Vendors in the market provide differentiated value-added services to customers, including packaging and kitting, which is difficult to maintain during in-house warehouse operations.
