Some of the largest markets for e-commerce including the UK, Germany, France, China, India, Japan, and the US are witnessing significant growth. As a result, vendors are focusing on expanding their order processing capacities for the processing of goods purchased online. This is leading to a rapid increase in the number of warehouses and distribution centers. For instance, Amazon.com doubled the number of its fulfillment centers in 2018 when compared with that in 2000. This is propelling the demand for AGVs in warehouses and distribution centers as they are used to transport cartons, products, and pallets within these warehouses and distribution centers. AGV software helps users track, guide, and control operational activities of AGVs. In addition, they are also used to offer services at lower costs and increase vendor capacity to deliver items in the shortest possible time. Thus, the growth in the e-commerce industry will boost the growth of the AGV software market during the forecast period.
