Market Overview:

The global container fleet market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for transportation and storage of goods across the globe. The market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of type, the global container fleet market is segmented into reefer containers, dry containers, and tank containers. Dry containers are further sub-segmented into general purpose (GP) dry containers and special purpose (SP) dry containers. Tank Containers are further sub-segmented into chemical tankers, gas tankers, oil tankers, and other tanker types. Reefer Containers are used for transporting temperature-sensitive goods such as fruits & vegetables whereas Dry Containers are used for transporting non-temperature sensitive goods such as textiles & garments. Tank Container segments dominated in terms of revenue share in 2017 owing to their high utilization rates in various industries such as automotive manufacturing sector; oil & gas industry; mining & minerals industry; food processing sector; agriculture sector etc.

Global Container Fleet Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A container fleet is a group of cargo containers that are moved together between two or more points. This term is usually used in the shipping industry, and it can refer to both sea and air cargo. Container fleets are important because they allow companies to move large quantities of goods quickly and efficiently.

Reefer Container:

Reefer is a term used for shipping temperature-sensitive products such as vegetables, fruits, fish, and meat in insulated containers from supplier to the retail market. Reefer container is an insulated container that helps preserve the freshness and quality of perishable goods during transportation. It maintains temperature inside the box which prevents any damage to food items.

Dry Container:

Dry container is a type of shipping container that has been designed to carry dry goods only. It is used for the transportation of products such as food, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and electronic equipment. The dry containers are made from steel or aluminum and have a flat top with no windows or doors on it.

Application Insights:

The automotive segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 40% in 2017. The growth can be attributed to the rising demand from emerging economies such as China, India, and Brazil for vehicles manufactured by well-established global brands such as Ford Motor Company and General Motors. Moreover, increasing production of passenger cars and commercial vehicles across major economies including Germany, U.S., Japan, South Korea, China and India is expected to drive industry expansion over the forecast period.

The oil & gas segment is anticipated to witness a significant CAGR exceeding 8% during the forecast period owing to growing investments in deepwater drilling activities along with high crude oil prices that have resulted in an increased exploration expenditure across various regions including Latin America Pacific Ocean which has led to an increased requirement of offshore support vessels capable of handling large volumes of crude oil or natural gas liquids at sea thereby fueling product demand globally.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has been witnessing strong economic growth on account of increasing foreign investments, rising disposable income, and growing industrialization. Moreover, rapid urbanization coupled with government initiatives such as “Make in India” and “One Belt One Road” (OBOR) is expected to create ample growth opportunities for industry participants over the next eight years.

The European market accounted for a share of 21.1% in terms of revenue in 2017 owing to high demand from automotive sector on account of stringent emission norms implemented by regulatory bodies across Europe coupled with new vehicle launches by manufacturers including Volkswagen Group; BMW AG; Mercedes-Benz AG; Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V.; Ford Motor Company; Nissan Motor Corporation Ltd.; Honda Motors Co., Ltd.; Toyota Industries Corporation etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for containerized cargo transport: The global trade is growing at a healthy pace and the demand for containerized cargo transport is increasing in tandem. This is driving the growth of the container fleet market.
  • Proliferation of mega-container vessels: The deployment of mega-container vessels by shipping lines is resulting in increased efficiency and economies of scale in the container fleet market. This is aiding the growth of the market.
  • Development of innovative technologies: Technological advancements are helping to improve operational efficiency and reduce costs in the container fleet market, thereby driving its growth.
  • Stringent regulations on emissions from ships: Stringent regulations on emissions from ships are encouraging shippers to opt for more fuel-efficient containerships, which is benefitingthe growthofthecontainerfleetonmarketplace
