ULTRA-condensed knowledge


Opportunity, The global autonomous forklifts market alone will reach a value of around $10.5 billion by 2025
  • Research firm Facts and Factors predicts that the global autonomous forklifts market alone will reach a value of around $10.5 billion by 2025, up from $6.5 billion in 2018.
  • Robotics is another rapidly growing industry, especially now that robots are more affordable and offer longer lifespans. The robotics industry is transforming not just the manufacturing of goods but also their management and distribution. 
Lesson learned, The frailty of global supply chains
  • COVID-19 has only served to further expose the frailty of global supply chains and turbocharge demand for change.
  • A recent ongoing survey of 50 chief financial officers from Fortune 1,000 companies found that one-third of the companies listed supply chain issues as a top-three concern for dangers facing their businesses.
      Lesson learned, The needed changes take time and ultimately will rely on technology innovation and implementation
      • The needed changes take time and ultimately will rely on technology innovation and implementation, often through the acquisition of technology disruptors by established industry players.
      Lesson learned, The warehouse systems market to explode to $4.82 billion by 2024
      • Even before this year’s coronavirus outbreak, research firm Markets & Markets expected the warehouse systems market to explode to $4.82 billion by 2024, up from $2.06 billion in 2018.
      Opportunity, COVID-19 has simply led to an acceleration in that rate of change
      • COVID-19 represents the greatest single short-term disruption to the global economy since World War II. History teaches us that times of crisis often drive innovation. This pandemic is no different.
