Last mile delivery is among the most expensive and cumbersome steps, across logistics. However, the room for errors and cost involved in wages are eliminated, since a robot completes the deliveries. Although expenses such as the development and purchasing costs of robots are still incurred, they are expected to be recovered by prompt delivery and cost effectiveness of automated vehicles and drones.

The report covers three types of vehicles, namely, ground delivery bots, self-driving vehicles, and aerial delivery drones. Ground delivery bots are slow, and are primarily characterized by pedestrian traveling robots such as Amazon’s Scout. Likewise, self-driving delivery vehicles travel on roads and are relatively faster than ground delivery bots. Aerial delivery drones entail unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), mainly used for delivery.

Key drivers fuelling the global automated last mile delivery market growth:

  • Increased demand for faster package delivery
    • Currently, the consumers’ expectations regarding deliveries are high.
    • Customers prefer faster and one-day deliveries, over other modes of distribution.
    • Thus, owing to increased expectations, adopting automated technologies is anticipated to depict a growing trend.
  • Improved efficiency within the market’s e-commerce industry
  • Technological innovations in delivery vehicles

Key restraining factors of the global automated last mile delivery market:

  • Inadequate infrastructure for autonomous delivery services
    • Owing to their high density, deploying delivery vehicles in certain cities are problematic.
    • Additionally, assigning specific paths or road patches may be required.
    • Since many drones ply on the same route, the chances of a collision increase. Thus, aerial delivery drones need accurate route management.
  • Lack of proper transportation technology in developing countries
  • Government regulations

The report scope of the global automated last mile delivery market covers the segmentation analysis of vehicle type, solution, range, and application.

Market by Range:

  • Short Range (< 20 km)
    • In the beginning, only the short range segment, under the range category is expected to gain prominence in terms of revenue share, due to distinct technological and regulatory barriers.
    • As a result, the market for short range automated last mile deliveries is expected to be larger in 2021, compared to long range deliveries.
  • Long Range (> 20 km)
    • The long range segment, under the range category, is expected to grow with the highest CAGR by the end of the forecast period.
    • The segment is predicted to observe considerable growth, as the market for self-delivery vehicles and aerial delivery drones increases.

Geographically, the global automated last mile delivery market has been segmented on the basis of four major regions, which includes:

  • North America: The United States and Canada
    • The United States and Canada are both technologically advanced.
    • The region is primarily driven by investments and developments, across the United States.
    • The majority of drone delivery and robotics delivery start-ups are emerging in the United States
    • Owing to these factors, the North America is anticipated to be the largest and the fastest-growing market for automated last mile deliveries.
  • Europe: Germany, France, The United Kingdom, Italy, Russia, Belgium, Poland and Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific: Japan, China, India, South Korea, Australia & New Zealand, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Rest of Asia-Pacific
