Pick to Light Market Dynamics

Significant Growth in E-Commerce Industry to Drive Demand for Pick to Light

Pick to light system is gaining popularity in the e-commerce industry offering reliability, simplicity, and flexibility. Moreover, it also helps to pick more order with fewer errors in less time. Increasing demand for reliability and speed with rising number or orders is resulting in the use of pick to light system to prepare fast and accurate e-commerce orders while eliminating service errors.

With rise in number of internet users, e-commerce industry is also witnessing significant growth. This is leading to the development and adoption of advanced pick to light system with higher volume picking, flexible technology, real-time monitoring and predictive planning, integrating pick to light system with wide variety of technologies and hardware, easy to learn and intuitive pick to light technology leading to less training time.

Industrial Internet of Things Pick to Light Models Gaining Traction

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) integrated pick to light devices are being used by increasing number of warehouse, distribution, and cellular manufacturing assemblies. With IIoT, pick to light devices or system can provide real-time, accurate, picking data leading to immediate corrective actions on distribution center or plant floor. IIoT pick to light system also eliminates the chances of product miss-picks. Moreover, just one incorrect shipped order can affect entire margin of shipment, often the measures include reshipping which can be costly, hence, demand for IIoT pick to light models are being adopted as its offers real-time monitoring, thereby, avoiding miss-picks completely.

Manufacturers in the pick to light market are leveraging IIoT in order to provide next-gen of pick to light technology for warehouse. Moreover, wireless pick to light devices are being developed with easy integration with existing warehouse management system or the enterprise resource planning system.

Price Complexity and Large Capital Investment to Challenge Pick to Light Market Growth

Pick to light system generally require large initial capital investment and also require high maintenance cost for the long term. Furthermore, adding a new location, require more equipment leading to large capital investment. Moreover, for smaller companies to deploy pick to light system can be prohibitively expensive owing to the software licensing fees, and out of the box cost without including downtime for installation or cost to wire a warehouse.

High cost of pick to light is also one of the reasons that pick lights are hardly installed in entire distribution center or warehouse. Instead, pick lights are mostly installed in the fast moving lines or at the most frequent inventories.
