The global autonomous last mile delivery market size is estimated to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the rising demand for faster delivery and cost-effective services with the growing e-commerce sector.

Global Autonomous Last Mile Delivery Market summary

Nowadays, the e-commerce and logistics companies are focusing on various ways to be more effective in delivery of goods as well as cost-effective. Therefore, logistics companies are focused on the development of innovative services to reduce the cost and automatic last mile delivery by utilizing drones, mobile robots, and autonomous vehicle technology. Last mile delivery is the most expensive portion of the logistics ecosystem, often represents more than 50% of the overall cost. A drone is an efficacious way to deliver lighter and smaller packages and could replace conventional delivery vehicles that are used currently. In light of the increasing evolution of drone delivery and its demand, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued rules for the utilization of commercial drones for deliveries. United Parcel Service, Inc. which is one of the key logistics companies, provided with a FAA approval to operate a bunch of drones in specified areas of the U.S. in October 2019. Correspondingly, for Prime Air drone delivery services, Amazon.com, Inc. received a FAA approval. FedEx Corporation, in partnership with Wing Aviation LLC, an Alphabet company, introduced its test project of drone delivery in Christiansburg, Virginia.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced to start contactless delivery services such as essentials and ordering food in order to stay away from busy restaurants and shops along with imposing social distancing norms. This crisis has put a light on independent robot deliveries that lead many shops, restaurants, and food joints to connect with the pilot projects of delivering groceries and food with the help of autonomous robots. During the pandemic lockdown, Shenzhen Yiqing Innovation Technology Co., Ltd. designed delivery vans for food delivery in Shenzhen, Suzhou Zibo cities. These vans delivered vegetables and essentials. These were also used to disinfect public areas by spraying chemicals. JD.com, Inc. a Chinese e-commerce giant, also used its driving service L4 to provide medical facilities in Wuhan's hospital.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Various logistics enterprises focuses on the evolution of innovative solutions to drag down the price and automate last mile delivery by utilizing drones, mobile robots, and autonomous vehicle technology. This is expected to accelerate the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Consumer expectations are rapidly changing due to which consumers are now willing to pay more for elite delivery, due to which next day or same day delivery has become usual in the e-commerce sector. This is projected to boost the market expansion.
  • A dependable advanced air-traffic management system and framework for drone deliveries entail to be put in place for hassle-free drone operations, which is one of the major factors for the market growth.
  • Lack of infrastructure to help autonomous delivery services and strict regulations are expected to hamper the market growth.
  • Factors such as robotics venture funding, technological developments, and rising applications of drones in the commercial sector are expected to provide growth opportunities to the market.
