Material Handling Equipment & Systems

The US market for material handling equipment and systems will reach $20.4 billion in 2008. Demand will be generated by technological innovations such as material handling robots, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and high-end services. Nevertheless, conventional equipment such as industrial trucks and lifts, conveyors, hoists, cranes and monorails will remain dominant.

This study analyzes the US material handling system and equipment industry. It presents historical demand data (1993, 1998 and 2003) and forecasts to 2008 and 2013 by type (e.g., forklifts, work trucks and tractors, unit and bulk handling conveying equipment, hoists, overhead cranes, unit and mini-load AS/RS, automated conveyors, automated guided vehicles); and by market (e.g., manufacturers, trade and distribution, construction, mining).

The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 40 leading competitors including NACCO, Siemens Dematic, Toyota Industries, Crown Equipment, FKI, and Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America.
