The safety and emission regulations for forklifts have become increasingly stringent and complex in the past few years. The European Commission has now introduced Stage V regulation for Non-Road Mobile Machinery which will be regulated from 2019 and will help in reducing almost 95% emission level from pre-regulated era. The increasing stringent emission tier slabs might stand as a challenge for manufacturers of forklift vehicles, as sizable R&D investments are required to redesign the vehicles emission systems. The increase in wider range available in electric forklifts is also an important factor which is helping this segment to acquire market share of ICE forklifts.

The fastest growing market for the forklift is the Asia-Pacific market, which holds majority of the market share of the global forklift market by value and volume. As of 2016, the adoption of forklift in the Indian and Chinese market is estimated to be low, but this trend is projected to increase rapidly in the near future, as the Asian countries are developing in e-commerce and industrial manufacturing sectors. The European forklift market contributes major share to the global forklift market. The European forklift market is dominated by Germany, which is the key market for the forklifts in the region.

The next emerging market is the wholesale and retailed distribution forklift market. The fragmentation of supply chain due to government policies, industrialization, and globalization is increasing the demand for warehousing. The European market of the wholesale and retail distribution segment was estimated to be the largest. As the number of warehouses increase, the material handling would also increase which can be managed more efficiently with the use of forklift. However, warehouse segment is expected to lead the market by 2021 significantly due to increasing number of warehouses being set up across the regions, reducing trade barriers between various regions, and preference towards low cost alternatives.
