Material Handling Cart Market Segmented By Hand Operated and Motor Operated functionality also material used are Aluminium, Plastic, Steel, Stainless Steel and Wire
Understanding operations in manufacturing industry gave rise to industrial engineering and optimization. As manufacturing industry flourished and volume of manufacturing kept on increasing, science of optimization also improved to achieve economical practices throughout industry, giving rise to the concept of material handling.
Material handling involves movement of goods and materials economically either in batches or in units throughout the process of manufacturing, testing, distributing, consuming and disposing. Material handling as an industrial concept has grown and is applied in a number of different industry for various applications and its equipment’s have evolved in various forms and sizes.
Surface finish and criticality of the component, size of the component, load subjected by the component, ergonomics and reduction in operational cost are some of the key factors considered for designing an industrial material handling cart whereas commercial ones are generalized, come in defined shapes and sizes and have fixed load carrying capacity.
Tyres used in carts also play significant role in material handling and hence 3 different types of tyres are used namely pneumatic rubber, filled rubber and solid. Pneumatic rubber carts are filled with air and are employed in industrial applications where shock absorbing is important, filled rubber requires less maintenance at compromise of shock absorbing but provide excellent traction.
Solid ones are either made from plastic, urethane or metal provide no shock absorbing, require a plain surface and are used in commercial applications like shopping malls.
Material handling cart is one of the most popular type of bulk material handing instrument. Its popularity can be linked to its extensive use in industrial as well as commercial industries. From raw material or equipment handling in manufacturing industries to handling of various commodities in shopping mall, material handling carts can be observed wherever defined capacity of bulk load is to be transported easily and effectively and hence its demand is expected to grow.
Hand carts which are used from moving freight over a certain distance by application of force through hands are the most popular type of carts. However a new trend of use of motor driven material handling carts can be seen extensively in industrial sector where load to be carried is very high and beyond ergonomic capacity of human operator.
Aluminium, Plastic, Steel, Stainless steel and wire are the most commonly used materials for material handling carts and are selected depending upon type of material to be handled. Carts handling solid wastes which high chemical reactivity use plastic, steel carts are used for heavy solid materials in a mesh form which requires less material, whereas aluminium being a soft and light metal is employed for industrial applications to freight of finished goods with no effect on surface finish.
Technology integrated shopping carts is a new trend developed by amazon, is an example of material handling with technology integration. Material put in the cart is automatically identified by the cart cup and is displayed on the screen attached with price thereby eliminating the process on standing in queue to scan barcodes. However the technology is in its early phase and is not completely implemented across global locations.
Material handling industry is a support industry and has evolved from manufacturing, logistics, warehousing and other segments and hence is completely dependent on them for its growth.
Covid-19 had an adverse effect on manufacturing industry as it is labour intensive work, E-commerce, Logistics industries faced a huge fall due to disruption in supply chain and hence growth in material handling cart market was also slumped. However as regulations ease out and, end use industry catch pace again, material handling cart market shows very high growth opportunity.

East Asia is expected to dominate material handling cart market due to increasing industrial sector like electronic manufacturing, automotive and more . The cumulative population in the region is also high and has well established e-commerce industry which facilitates warehousing and logistics operations.
North American is another prominent E-commerce hub with major e-commerce industries based in the region. South Asia and Pacific is anticipated to show a considerable growth due to emerging developing countries showing growth potential for both industrial as well as E-commerce and warehousing industries.
Construction industry in this region is also rapidly growing which will further contribute to use of material handling carts. Europe is expected to show steady growth due to already well-established industrial & construction industries. Middle East and Africa share is estimated to show steady growth due to increasing urbanization and construction activities, whereas Latin America is expected to was offer slow growth as end use market are yet to establish.
