logoMarket Overview

To protect the quantity and quality of the items being held for future use, commodities and merchandise are stored through warehousing. Given that it acts as the hub for the collection, organization, and distribution of goods throughout the supply chain, it is an essential link in the logistics value chain. Every business owner needs warehouses and storage to build up inventory effectively and smoothly. Most warehouses have a loading dock where goods are unloaded and loaded. The warehouse is generally designed to unload and load goods straight from the harbor, the railway station, or the airport. Pallet racks in these warehouses hold ISO-standard pallets moved by forklifts and cranes. The export/import of commodities, the primary drivers of the storage market, is predicted to increase significantly in the future. Demand is expected to significantly increase by several new growth drivers, such as organized retail, information technology, telecommunications, and healthcare. Traditional growth-driven sectors like manufacturing and agriculture will continue to fuel demand (textile and auto auxiliary).

logoCOVID-19 Impact:

The impact of COVID-19 on the global warehousing market has hindered the rapid rise of the warehousing market. It is mainly due to the decrease in imports from major trading countries such as China and Hong Kong that affected the volume of road and sea freight transported from other countries. Also, there will be a reduction in picking revenues in the warehousing industry as only essential commodities will be rotated. Further, the complete lockdown and transportation of only essential commodities had a negative growth rate in the market in 2020. However, e-commerce logistics and public and private sector initiatives to mitigate supply chain disruptions during the pandemic have increased the need for warehouse space.

The rise in internet users and online sales is fueling the expansion of the e-commerce sector. Warehouses will adopt the latest technologies in the coming years, boosting the overall market.

logo Restraints

  • The lack of uniform governance standards in the logistics industry is hampering the market growth

The lack of governance is a major impediment to the widespread adoption of warehousing. The logistics industry is highly fragmented, necessitating the development of a logistics IoT standard. Global transportation and logistics companies focus on increasing supply chain efficiency to maintain profitability and viability. There is a requirement to keep governance as consistent as possible, as having one authority per field would confuse. On the other hand, a high level of performance will result in end-to-end improvements in connected devices and integrated platforms. Thus, these factors are expected to hamper the global warehousing market.
