The top three revenue contributing end-user segments are discussed below:

Global logistics market by manufacturing industry: The rise in a number of manufacturing facilities is the key driving force behind the demand for logistics from the manufacturing industry. Much of the demand for logistics from the manufacturing sector is likely to be concentrated around manufacturing hubs such as India and China. In Europe, the Horizon 2020 R&D funding for “industrial leadership” will boost the manufacturing sector, which, in turn, will have a positive impact on logistics for the manufacturing industry in this region.

Manufacturers have to procure raw materials, verify their quality, manufacture, check the quality of finished products, and send them to wholesalers, brick-and-mortar stores, and others. The whole supply chain process, from obtaining raw materials to delivering finished products to stores depending on the demand, has a direct impact on the overall cost of production. As a result, manufacturers increasingly prefer the use of logistics services with advanced technologies for the quick and efficient delivery of products,” says Sharan Raj, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on logistics.

Global logistics market by automotive industry: China, Japan, South Korea, Germany, and the US are some of the largest automotive markets in the world and hence, account for a major share of the global logistics market for the automotive sector. The surge in production of automobiles such as including light heavy trucks, commercial vehicles and passenger cars in these countries during the forecast period is anticipated to drive further growth of this market according to the industry analysts at Technavio.

Global logistics market by consumer goods industry: The rise in demand for consumer goods, resulting from the rise of middle-class population, is expected to drive the growth of the global logistics market by the consumer goods industry during the forecast period.
