East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/23/2014 -- The Picking Perfection newsletter reported that the global demand for material handling equipment is predicted to rise 5 percent annually through 2018. Gains will be strongest for sales of advanced equipment such as automated conveyors and automated guided vehicles (AGVs). The data suggests that automated products reduce the required labor input in operating machinery, helping to curtail labor costs. Energy efficient products will also see solid gains as end-users seek to reduce costs. The complete report is available here. The US will continue to be the world's largest material handling product market, benefiting from an improved outlook for fixed investment spending. This will encourage US manufacturers to invest in new equipment, particularly labor-saving automated products.
