Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) have become one of the leading warehouse automation investments. Statistics value the global AMR market at $2.97 billion in 2022, with projections for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.5% from 2023 to 2030.
In North America, manufacturers represent the leading deployment market. However, demand has surged for AMRs in e-commerce, logistics, and retail operations. As a flexible solution that requires minimal infrastructure modifications—compared to fixed equipment like conveyors, sortation, or automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS)—AMRs help companies bolster order fulfillment efficiency in the face of ongoing labor shortages. They also enhance agility and responsiveness to increasing customer expectations for faster deliveries and changing business and supply chain conditions.
Two types of AMRs are most frequently deployed in distribution or fulfillment operations: Goods-to-Person and Person-to-Goods. Although they may seem similar at first, the productivity and efficiency gains are very different. Goods-to-Person AMRs bring items to associates or robotic picking arms for order fulfillment, eliminating walk and search time. Conversely, Person-to-Goods AMRs support associates as they travel through the aisles, picking needed items like a shopper in the grocery store. This whitepaper compares the two styles to help operations determine which type works best in their application.
