This Persistence Market Research report examines the global forklift truck market for the period 2017–2021. Forklift trucks are motorized vehicles primarily used for independent lifting, movement, and placement of discrete loads throughout a facility. These mobile loading trucks can be outfitted with forks for pallet-based unit load picking and for loads that are not palletized. These vehicles can be used with a variety of attachments such as platforms, grippers, or clamps. To move lighter loads, manually powered vehicles such as carts and hand trucks are used. One of the challenging tasks in warehouses and distribution centers is that of placing and removing loads from storage racks, loading and unloading trailers in the yard or at the dock, delivering components to the assembly line, and positioning loads for further handling processes. To complete such tasks, forklift trucks are used across various industries such as aerospace, automotive, food and beverages, construction, consumer goods, e-commerce, and retail.
