Connected Logistics Market Set for Three-fold Revenue Growth Over 2019-2029

Amidst tech-driven disruptions, a majority of supply & logistic companies are still living in the pre-transformation era. Industrials are striving to introduce new products and deliver better services that respond flexibly to evolving expectations, while maintaining (or improving) their value pool. In order to flourish in this digital era, industry executives need a new-age model for their supply chain and logistics. Against this backdrop, the global connected logistics market will experience an astounding growth over 2019-2029, with revenue surging over 3X.

Key Factors Shaping Connected Logistics Market

Increasing Adoption of RFID Tags in Connected Logistics Spurring Market Growth

The rising need for efficient supply chain management is expected to support the growth of RFID tags in the connected logistics market. RFID in logistics has potential in route optimization and real-time tracking of goods. RFID is used to provide precise location and quantity data in real-time. RFID produces accurate and real-time information of goods that are in-transit or work-in-progress. Generally, RFID tags store detailed information up to 2 KB related to the product on which they are tagged, and the prices and details of products are automatically recorded. RFID tags in integration with cloud-based technology are used for real-time monitoring and storing data. Cloud-based RFID tags offer users additional functionalities such as warehouse and inventory management, depending upon the need for operations.

Logistics 4.0 Driving Growth of Connected Logistics Market

Logistics 4.0 enables process improvement through a variety of technological advancements, which include automated systems, driverless transport vehicles, and robotics. Increase in the adoption of cloud-based technology with the usage of logistics 4.0 and IoT is driving the growth of the connected logistics market. IoT sensors are built into cargo, ships, cabs, and trains, and are connected to an alarm system or dispatcher that is used for tracking and monitoring. These sensors transmit information to the team, which then gains insights of hidden risks and knowledge. This also gives accurate in-transit visibility and delivery of goods. The demand for cloud-based software as a service is increasing in logistics, as it helps logistic professionals access critical data and applications, both, on the road and in the office, from any connected device.

Adoption of AI Propelling Demand for Connected Logistics

Artificial intelligence (AI) is taking a central role in the logistics industry. AI provides logistics with contextual intelligence, which is used to reduce operating costs and manage inventory. AI has the ability to predict demand, optimize delivery routes, and manage networks. It can predict trends based on factors such as real-time sales, weather, and other things. The demand for anticipatory logistics that uses AI is increasing, as it allows logistic professionals to improve efficiency and quality by predicting demand before a consumer places an order. AI helps give useful insights from the data collected through supply chain and logistics, which can be used to streamline the entire logistics ecosystem. AI can help optimize future performance by forecasting accurate demand and capacity planning.

North America Connected Logistics Market to Remain Dominant through 2029

In terms of value, North America led the global connected logistics market in 2018. This regional market is projected to offer the most lucrative opportunities for revenue generation over the forecast period. The market in South Asia & Pacific is expected to record the highest growth rate over the forecast period, owing to the adoption of advanced technology to improve logistics management and traceability. Organizations in this region are experiencing increase in customers, which brings out the need for organized logistics to reduce cost and time.

Retail & Consumer Goods Industry to Shape Shareholders’ Bottom Lines

The retail & consumer goods vertical would be the immediate customer of connected logistics, primarily attributable to the top-line growth of the e-Commerce industry. Consumer behavior has changed with the high influence of digital sales channels. This is compelling retail & consumer goods companies to reshape their underlying operating models with connected logistics, to keep pace with the ever-evolving industry and consumer demand. By 2029, the deployment of connected logistics in the retail & consumer goods industry will value over US$ 15 Bn.

U.S. Market Remains Most Lucrative

Revenue of the connected logistics market in North America will nearly triple over the next decade. The region is an early adopter and manufacturer of digital solutions, and thus, continues to generate significant total returns to stakeholders. Furthermore, this study highlights that, the U.S. represents the most lucrative growth prospects, and would hit US$ 10 Bn towards the end of the foreseeable period. Asia Pacific (APAC) is also reflecting investment opportunities, owing to rapid tech penetration to enhance logistics and product traceability. Influenced by an inflating customer base, companies in the region are increasingly embracing connected logistics in order to improve efficiency in terms of time and cost.

AI to Optimize Connected Logistics Ecosystem

Artificial intelligence (AI) is taking center stage in the logistics industry, as it helps reduce operating expenses (OPEX) and manage inventory with contextual intelligence. This technology exhibits the ability to optimize delivery routes and networks, as well as predict trends based on factors such as real-time sales and weather. The employment of anticipatory logistics backed by AI is accelerating, as it boosts efficiency and quality by predicting demand before consumers make a purchase. Furthermore, AI provides actionable insights from the data collected via supply chain and logistics, which can be used to forecast accurate demand and capacity planning, thereby streamlining the entire connected logistics ecosystem.
