Industry Insights

The global automated parcel delivery terminals market size was valued at USD 360.7 million in 2016 and is expected to gain momentum over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the significant growth of the e-commerce market and increased cross-border parcel shipments.

The market is largely influenced by the rapid growth in e-commerce, which in turn has generated a high demand for express delivery services. This has consequently propelled companies to hire more labor. Moreover, factors such as incapability of making deliveries to remote areas and failed delivery attempts are responsible for incurring additional costs to the companies. As a result, self-pickup solutions like automated parcel delivery terminals are gaining popularity among e-commerce retailers.

The increasing penetration of internet and smartphones across the globe has enabled consumers to import products from other countries. This is expected to result in considerable growth in the volumes of parcel shipments. Moreover, in order to avoid delayed and unsuccessful deliveries, retailers are emphasizing the adoption of alternative parcel delivery solutions.

Governments across the globe, especially in emerging nations such as China and India, are greatly emphasizing digitalization and promoting cashless payments. The Cash on Delivery (COD) option available in intelligent parcel delivery terminals allows clients and their customers to make successful and smooth transactions, thus helping governments in achieving their political agendas of digital, cashless, and more transparent economy.

Deployment Location Insights

The indoor deployment location segment accounted for a significant automated parcel delivery terminals market share in 2016. However, the outdoor deployment location segment is expected to emerge as the fastest growing segment with a CAGR of 15.9% from 2017 to 2025.

The high popularity of indoor terminals can be attributed to low threats of vandalism and burglary. These terminals are considered convenient by the end users and can be easily installed due to lesser regulatory and environmental requirements. In addition, they enable the easy collection, delivery, and recovery of parcels, even in adverse weather conditions.

Indoor terminals offer more cost benefits in comparison to outdoor terminals as they require lesser capital for installation, maintenance, and operation. However, despite these advantages, outdoor deployment location is expected to grow at the highest rate, owing to the increasing demand for smart cities and greater availability of intelligent parcel lockers at outdoor locations to offer more convenience to customers.

End-use Insights

The shipping & logistic end-use segment dominated the end-use segment in 2016 and was valued at USD 154.0 million in 2016 This can be attributed to the swiftly growing volume of parcels and instances of delivery failures, which are propelling prominent shipping/logistics companies to opt for automated parcel delivery terminals.

Failure of last mile deliveries incurs huge losses to logistics companies, contributing to about 70% of the overall costs. Automated parcel delivery terminals facilitate up to 25% reduction in the overall transportation cost of packages.

Moreover, the capability of these terminals to operate as standalone units at metro stations, shopping malls, superstores, and walkways is also expected to drive the growth of this segment.

Regional Insights

The European region acquired a significant market share in 2016 and was valued at USD 248 million. This can be attributed to the large presence of key industry players in the region, which has enabled them to have a technological edge over others.

In 2015, the volumes of parcels shipped in the UK, Germany, and France were 2.2, 3.0, and 1.5 billion respectively.

However, the North American region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 17.6% over the forecast period, owing to remarkable growth in the e-commerce sector, increasing internet penetration, and increasing adoption of non-conventional methods of receiving parcels.
