Europe is a major hub for OEMs, with a strong presence in Germany, Italy, France, the Netherlands and Spain. Western Europe is a large market accounting for around 30% of the overall world market

  • Most of the fastest growing markets are concentrated in APAC, primarily in South Asia (India) and Southeast Asia. The Middle East is another exciting opportunity and is well suited in terms of geography with European players looking to expand their offerings in the region. Latin America is still under-penetrated when it comes to automation; however, things are set to change and the market is expected to experience strong growth in Brazil and Mexico. Within Europe, Central and Eastern Europe is a rapidly growing region, with Poland and the Czech Republic emerging as a logistics hub and showing good growth prospects. However, given the current geopolitical situation with the Russian-Ukrainian war, expansion and investment plans have been put on hold.
