Diversifying Logistical Operations and e-Commerce Boom Contributing to Market Growth

The global industrial racking system market is inextricably linked with trade volumes, manufacturing sector, and e-Commerce. The material handling industry and industrial racking systems continue to be highly correlated with the overall economy: if the GDP is growing, then the overall storage demand in the supply chain should rise as well.

According to our market estimates, the global industrial racking system market is foreseen to reach ~US$ 22 Bn by the end of the forecast period, registering a CAGR of ~7%. Attempting to keep up with the growing storage demand, new warehouse construction spending by e-Commerce firms continues to rise. Therefore, the global industrial racking system market for e-Commerce appears promising, growing at a CAGR of ~9%, mainly driven by India and countries of South East Asia & Pacific. Companies have created a balance between e-Commerce and 3PLs, along with a broad vertical strategy, ensuring strong growth potential for the industrial racking system market.

Growing 3PLs Market Set to Augment Sales of Industrial Racking Systems

The global logistics industry mainly comprises a complex range of freight and cargo-related transportation sectors. Logistics is one of the most important basic industries in any economy as it deals with the management of the flow of products from the place of origin to that of their consumption; thus, the industry involves integration of material handling, warehousing, packaging, transportation, inventory management, supply chain management, procurement, and shipping security aspects. According to our analysis, the total global logistics market is set to reach a value of ~US$ 8 Trillion by 2020, representing ~9% of the global GDP. The logistics sector is expected to grow at ~10-15% in the forthcoming years, largely due to growth in retail, e-Commerce, and manufacturing sectors.

Shortage of Modern Warehousing Spaces Forcing New Constructions

Warehouse construction and U.S. freight are skyrocketing, pointing to a growing and stronger U.S. economy. Furthermore, shortage of modern warehouse facilities will lead to tough competition for space among e-Commerce players in the U.S. Given the lack of modern warehouse space and the rise of e-Commerce in the U.S., there is a huge opportunity to develop new warehouses and rebuild old ones to ensure that they meet modern requirements. There is a shortage of warehouse space across global cities due to surging demand from e-commerce giants, translating to positive growth trend for industrial racking systems.

The total U.S. warehouse inventory, which is increasingly becoming obsolete at an average age of 34 years, will proliferate the development of new warehouses spaces and augment the sales of industrial racking systems. This trend to invest in the development of better urban warehouses is also significant in Europe. The industrial racking systems market benefits from key drivers of economic activity, including household consumption, e-Commerce, supply chain modernization, and urbanization. In developed markets of U.S., Europe, and Japan, the reconfiguration of supply chains (strongly influenced by e-Commerce trends) is a strong factor impacting the market. On the other hand, in emerging markets such as Brazil, China, India, and Mexico, affluence and the rise of a new consumer class have increased the need for modern distribution networks, subsequently, mirroring a robust viewpoint for the industrial racking system market.

India to Steer Global Industrial Racking System Market Growth in Near Future

India, being at the forefront in terms of growth rate, is set to observe substantial investments in e-Commerce and manufacturing sectors. Importantly, initiatives being taken by regional governments are likely to encourage the movement of low-cost manufacturing towards parts of South East Asia and Africa, while new transport corridors will provide significant opportunities in the logistics sector as supply chains are upgraded.

Portfolio Rationalization and Focus on New Geographies

The global industrial racking system market is highly fragmented where tier-3 players account for a dominant share. The presence of a large number of players is intensifying competition at a country level. In the recent past, the industrial racking system market has witnessed significant developments from a competitive perspective. Product innovations, such as inclusion of IoT, and ready-to-build products, as well as mergers and acquisitions are some of the preferred strategies for key players to sustain and enter the global industrial racking system market. Wide number of market stakeholders are focused on expanding product portfolios and portfolio rationalization.
