Removing or placing large loads in storage racks, delivering components to the assembly line, unloading and loading trailers at the dock or in the yard, and correctly positioning loads for handling processes are some of the key challenges that warehouses and distribution centers face, whether it is in the automotive, aerospace, construction, food and beverages, e-commerce, consumer goods, or retail sectors. Forklift trucks serve as the ideal solution to address such challenges.

These motorized and mobile loading vehicles are used to move, lift, or place heavy loads throughout a facility and can be used by attaching a variety of extensions such as clamps, grippers, or platforms. The availability of advanced technologies in various in-house logistics has greatly impacted the forklift truck market.

Harmful Emissions a Threat as well as Future Opportunity for Forklift Truck Market

The forklift truck market is driven by a number of factors, such as the growing e-commerce business, expansion of warehouse space and capacity, large investments in low-cost forklift trucks, and strong demand for forklift truck replacements in developed markets. On the other hand, increasing costs of forklift trucks and rising environmental concerns associated with the use of IC-engine-type forklift trucks threaten to challenge the development of the overall market. However, these environmental concerns have prompted manufacturers to reduce the weight of IC-engine-powered trucks, thereby bringing down the level of harmful emissions. This major trend – accompanied by the integration of innovative technologies such as cloud computing, the Internet of Things, and Big Data – is anticipated to drive the forklift truck market over the next six years.
