Increasing demand for electric forklift applications

The mechanical, automotive, food and beverage, logistics, chemical, timber, paper printing, and retail and wholesale companies are the end-users of battery-powered forklifts. Most end-users prefer electric forklifts owing to their low GHG emissions and noise levels. Apart from its environmental benefits, electric forklifts are able to reduce the requirement on fuel, which is a major cost component of logistics operations. For example, the cost of propelling an electric forklift is 50% less than the cost of propelling an internal combustion engine (ICE) forklift and also have a longer lifespan than ICE forklifts.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for , “The usage of lead-acid batteries in material handling equipment is cost-efficient and offers high resilience in harsh environments that involve chemicals, dirt, and vibration. Lead-acid batteries require low maintenance than other types of batteries. Planning for the use of lead-acid batteries and their replacement is consistent, simple, and predictable. Technical innovations such as the advent of fast charging during operator downtime improve the cost efficiency of electric forklifts and their batteries.”
