Global Cargo Handling Equipment Market – Size, Share, Trends, Demand and Growth Opportunity Assessment

Global cargo handling equipment market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% over the forecast period i.e. 2016-2024.

Market Landscape

Seaborne trade across the globe has significantly aided the growth of cargo volumes at marine ports which has created a considerable demand for cargo handling equipment at marine ports across the globe. The volume of seaborne trade is expected to increase by 2 folds from 9 billion tonnes per annum to about 21 billion tonnes by 2030 and the China and other fastest growing economies are projected to be the growth engines for the cargo handling equipment demand on the back of growing trades between countries and growing number of port development projects. On the other hand, developed countries are likely to create considerable demand for cargo handling equipment owing to the development of existing ports to increase their capacity and efficiency. Additionally, in 2016, more than 195,000 (Million Tons-Km) of cargo is transported through aircraft which is projected to cross 300,000 (Million tons-km) by 2024. Both airline operators and airport authorities are concentrating on the implementation of advanced cargo handling equipment in order to meet growing air cargo traffic and to confirm greater productivity and profitability.

Significant demand for heavy cranes or cargo handling equipment has been observed in past years, as a result of new development and up gradation projects of marine ports. In 2015, substantial growth is observed in the transport of ship-to-shore cranes, Europe accounted for the largest regional market with 47 new STS cranes. Moreover, of the total cranes delivered around the world, 11% were identified as E-RTG or the crane variant powered by electricity rather than fossil fuels to curb the carbon emission.
