Key Market Drivers & Trends:  The expanding B2C e-commerce market is one of the primary reasons driving growth in the courier and local delivery services market in the United States. The rise of the e-commerce business is being fueled by rising Internet penetration and rising buying power parity across the United States. In North America, the United States is the leading contributor to the e-commerce market. The major suppliers who provide courier delivery services to the B2C e-commerce business in the United States are the United Parcel Service of America and FedEx. To achieve a competitive advantage in the market, e-tailers are cutting lead times. Each end-user has a different demand for courier and local delivery services. This is because customers are willing to pay a premium for expedited product delivery. Changes in e-tailer and end-user requirements are driving up demand for courier services in the B2C e-commerce business. Another key element boosting the expansion of the courier and local delivery services market share in the United States is automation. In the United States, autonomous logistics is likely to gain traction in the courier and local delivery services markets. This is because growing fuel, maintenance, and labor costs are reducing logistic companies' profitability. Autonomous logistics is projected to increasingly replace manual labor as it gives more precise results and reduces labor errors. Furthermore, it cuts the time it takes for logistics activities by about 80% to 85%. The involvement of robotics in logistics operations is expected to improve the efficiency of vendors in the courier and local delivery services market in the US by around 25%-27%.
