An automated guided vehicle or automatic guided vehicle (AGV) is a mechanical vehicle which carries a load through either an assembly, manufacturing or warehousing facility. Using an AGV instead of a human removes the potential for human mistakes. This also reduces product and equipment damage in the distribution center. Reduced errors leads to increased productivity and improved bottom line. The global automated guided vehicles (AGV) market was estimated at USD 2,247 million in 2021 and is expected to hit USD 6,428 million by 2028, registering a CAGR of 16.2% from 2022 to 2028 as per the latest report by Gen Consulting Company.
