Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The high price of material handling equipment hinders its adoption by many small and medium-scale organizations across the globe. However, the need to increase their material handling capabilities has forced end-users to look for different procurement channels. As there is high competition among vendors, some are trying to differentiate themselves from other vendors by providing innovative and value-added services; this includes offering equipment such as forklifts and other industrial trucks on a rent or lease basis. The availability of rent-based material handling equipment encourages end-users to use advanced material handling equipment with low investment. This in turn is expected to drive the material handling equipment market in Asia during the forecast period.”
According to the report, one of the major benefits of implementing material handling equipment is the cost saving. Such equipment enables end-users to save costs in many ways by reducing storage and transportation costs, eliminating disposal costs, reducing labor costs, and reducing product damage that would otherwise increase the unit cost of production for the company. End-users are able to make significant savings in the long run by switching from traditional material handling practices to the material handling system.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges for the material handling equipment market in Asia is the lack of availability of a skilled workforce.
