Pick to Light Market Size, Trends & Growth (2021 - 2026)

Pick to the Light, also known as a digital picking system, is a directed light picking technology that provides an accurate and efficient method of picking, sorting or placing and assembling products, thus reducing labor-labor costs. The Pick to the light system is used in warehouses where high density order picking is required. The global pick to light market is driven by the development of the e-commerce industry, the emergence of advanced automated warehouses, more productive and error-free operations, and the growing trend of online shopping.

The global Pick to Light market is relied upon to develop from USD 323.7 million in 2017 to USD 538.2 million by 2023, and also register a CAGR of 8.84% in the foreseen period of 2021 to 2026. The growth of this market is driven by emergence of automated warehouses, the growth of the e-commerce industry and globalization of the supply chain network. In addition, pick to light offers higher quality error-free productivity operations and better use of labor.

Recent Developments:

  • Honeywell Intelligrated made order picking processes easier and more accurate by integrating warehouse fulfillment software with light picking systems. This association allows operators to choose items for multiple orders in a single pass rather than making multiple trips for multiple orders. This time-saving method increases the number of commands executed and increases accuracy by guiding operators with technology.
  • Next-generation PTL hardware is essential to execute any omnichannel strategy, as it supports pick and drop methodologies to ensure you are meeting your customers’ demands.
  • Pick by Light is a semi-automatic and paperless order picking system. By using Pick by Light, conveying systems, and our proven WAMAS® material flow control software, you not only optimize your picking processes, but you can also significantly reduce your logistics costs at the same time.
  • Apotea, Sweden’s first huge scope online drug store, dispatched SSI SCHAEFER to extend the current distribution centre solution to satisfy developing need.
  • In the “eye-navi” application, a travel bag, an RFID tag and a display unit travel together on conveyor lines. The movement of the pick-to-light indicators on the inventory racks and that of the bins on the conveyors are synchronized to indicate both “How many items to choose from which pickup locations” and “Which is the correct container to dump selected items “to the operators.


COVID-19 can affect the global economy by directly impacting production, disrupting the supply chain and creating financial burden on companies. The COVID-19 outbreak has brought about major changes around the world. Global efforts to contain the spread of the pandemic have changed daily consumption habits, consumption patterns and ways of thinking, boosting national economies and improving online services. The pandemic is rapidly changing consumer behavior towards online channels. Online demand has increased for various categories, including food and beverages, essentials, and pharmaceuticals, which come in innovative contactless formats. This gave a boost to the growth of the e-commerce, automotive and food and beverage industries. The demand for storage has also increased due to the online demand for various products. Several multinational companies are setting up new warehouses in various countries to meet this growing demand. E-commerce giants like Amazon, Alibaba, and eBay are increasing demand for ASRS as they continue to build new warehouses around the world. The increase in the number of warehouses requires the installation of ASRS for the appropriate inventory management, cataloging and retrieval services.

Drivers and Restraints of Pick to Light Market:


The storage and logistics sector has a positive impact on the global pick-to-light market. In addition, the region has numerous manufacturing and warehousing facilities for various industries, such as automotive, aerospace and defense, machinery, and electrical and electronics. This has created a significant demand among warehouse operating companies for sophisticated light-pick solutions to manage warehousing and distribution operations for these end-user industries.


However, high capital investment for installation and financial strength for maintenance can slow market growth globally. Increasing use by SMEs and industrial developments in developing countries are expected to create beneficial growth opportunities for major market players. The complexity of product prices and unsuitable products for heavy goods and large picking areas are the main challenges for the global pick to light market in the near future.
