Report ID: 155943 3300 Machinery & Equipment 377 233 Pages 4.9 (36)

Market Overview:

The global dock levelers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for dock levelers from logistics and warehouse applications, and ports. Additionally, the growing demand for electric dock levelers is also contributing to the growth of this market. However, factors such as high installation and maintenance costs are restraining the growth of this market. On basis of type, mechanical dock levelers are expected to account for a major share in terms of revenue in 2018; however, hydraulic dock levelers are projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period from 2018-2030 owing their advantages over mechanical dock levellers such as low noise levels.

Global Dock Levelers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Dock levelers are used to create a level surface when loading and unloading goods from a truck. This is important because it ensures that the products are not damaged during the process.

Mechanical Dock Levelers:

Mechanical dock levelers are used to keep the ships in perfect position during unloading and loading. They are also useful for maintaining the water depth, which is necessary for safe navigation. The market size was valued at USD 1,849.7 million in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 2016 to 2024 on account of rising demand from container shipping industry across various regions including Europe, Asia Pacific & Middle East & Africa.

Hydraulic Dock Levelers:

Hydraulic dock levelers are used in the leveling equipment to keep vessels in perfect vertical alignment. They are also known as waterlevelers or hydrometers. The hydraulic dock leveler is a closed system that works by using the force of water pressure through pipes connected to the vessel’s bow and stern.

Application Insights:

The logistics and warehouse application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 30% in 2017. The rising demand for levelers in the logistics and warehouse industry is attributed to their ability to maintain accurate levels within containers, thereby ensuring efficient distribution. Moreover, they are used at various points of storage including intra-depot storage, intermediate staging areas and final delivery points.

Logistics companies are also focusing on developing innovative solutions along with technological advancements that will help them offer enhanced services to their customers while reducing operating costs significantly. Some such innovations include mobile applications that enable users to track container movements from origin till delivery at any given time. Such developments indicate a growing focus on customer satisfaction coupled with operational efficiency by the industry players which is likely fuel market growth over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing port activities in China, India, and other countries of Southeast Asia. In addition, rising trade activities with Australia and New Zealand are expected to drive demand for efficient logistics infrastructure in this region.

The U.S., which was at the forefront of development for levelers in North America, has been witnessing a steady decline since 2014 as far as new investments are concerned owing to lack of available capital and slowdown in economic growth is concerned. However, there has been an increase in utilization rates post-2014 on account of growing trade activities between U.S.-based companies such as Walmart Inc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for dock levelers from the automotive and transportation sector on account of growing e-commerce industry.
  • Rising investments in infrastructure development projects, which is expected to create opportunities for dock levelers market growth over the forecast period.
  • Growing adoption of automated systems in warehouses and distribution centers, which is projected to propel the demand for dock levelers over the next few years.
  • Proliferation of smart warehouses that use advanced technologies such as robotics and automation, which is likely to boost the uptake of dock levelers in near future
