As per the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), maritime transport is the backbone of the economy, which contributes around 80% trade by volume and nearly 70% of global trade by value across the globe. The seaborne trade has experienced the fastest growth of more than 4% in past years as per UNCTAD.


The primary factor that drives the growth of the global port equipment includes infrastructure development in the Asia-Pacific region. Coupled with increased spending on road infrastructure, economies are investing heavily in other forms of transport infrastructure such as the seaborne movement of goods and raw materials. In addition, rising seaborne activities in the European region also contributes to the growth of the port equipment market during the forecast period. For instance, the Marine Knowledge 2020 initiative, Common Information Sharing Environment (CISE) for the surveillance of the EU maritime domain, Marine Strategy Framework Directive are some of the activities in the European region.

Further, road and air travel emit more carbon footprint in comparison with the sea conveyance. As per the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), shipping produces around 3-5-gram 80 grams per tonne-km of carbon emission, whereas road and air transportation generates 80 gram per tonne-km by trucks. Growing consciousness regarding carbon footprint and inclination towards eco-friendly transportation is likely to encourage the adoption of port equipment which in turn will drive the market growth and expand port equipment market size during the forecast timeframe.

Further, as per the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), in 2018, the seaborne trade increased by 4%. It offers several benefits such as large cargo space availability, economical, and safety. Expanding maritime logistics services is likely to flourish the market growth. In May 2019, UK allocated 0 million for expanding Port of Dover. Besides, the ports are incorporating smart solutions to optimize operations, reduce logistics costs, and enhance efficiency.
