Warehouse Order Picking Market Growth & Trends

The global warehouse order picking market size is expected to reach USD 11.16 billion by 2025, registering an estimated CAGR of 10.2% from 2019 to 2025 according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The rising demand for automation in warehouses to reduce the response time and increase order fulfillment productivity is the key factor driving the market growth. Furthermore, the rapid development of the e-commerce industry has resulted in an increasing number of fulfillment centers worldwide, thereby boosting the deployment of order picking systems.

The order picking process is expected to account for 50–55% of the total warehouse operating cost. As a result, the warehouse industry has witnessed a tremendous technological shift wherein the traditional processes are now being replaced with semi-automated as well as automated solutions. Traditional methods, including paper-based picking (semi-automated systems), in which laborers are provided with batch sheets to pick parcel shipments, are being replaced with technologically upgraded solutions such as augmented reality-based and voice-based solutions. These solutions are anticipated to reduce the cost incurred, thereby improving the efficiency of the systems as well as lowering the response time.

On the other hand, globalization has resulted in the complexity of supply chain networks, owing to which companies are outsourcing their manufacturing and storage activities from third-party organizations. Moreover, the rising demand for managing supply chain operations has led companies to upgrade their product and service offerings to cater to the personalized requirements of end users, which would help them attain an extensive customer base.
