Market Overview:

The global barge bumper market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for barges for transportation of goods and rising investments in infrastructure development. Based on type, the global barge bumper market is segmented into rubber barge bumper and steel barge bumper. The rubber barge bumper segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR than the steel barge bumper segment during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its properties such as high impact resistance, durability, and flexibility that make it suitable for use in various applications. Based on application, the global barge bumper market is divided into navigation and others (loading/unloading docks, ship-to-shore transfer operations). The navigation segment accounted for a larger share of the global market in 2017 owing to its growing demand from various end-use industries such as oil & gas, mining & construction, and marine transportation.

Global Barge Bumper Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A barge bumper is a device used to protect barges and other watercraft from collisions. They are usually made of heavy duty materials, such as steel or concrete, and are installed along the length of a pier or dock.

Rubber Barge Bumper:

Rubber barge bumper is a device used to protect the front end of a barge or flat-bottomed boat from damage. It is also known as crash pad, bumper, or runabout bumper. The primary function of rubber barge bumpers is to absorb energy and prevent the boat from being damaged when hit by another object.

The global market for rubber bumpers was estimated at USD 3,15 billion in 2016.

Steel Barge Bumper:

The steel barge bumper is a device used to protect the front end of a barge or freight ship from damage. The bumper consists of two parts, namely the shackle and plate. The shackle is an elongated metal bar that wraps around the tires while the plate is secured to it by bolts. There are various types of bumpers available in the market based on their materials and applications such as concrete, wood, fiberglass composite among others.

Application Insights:

The navigation application segment led the global barge bumper market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to growing demand for barges for various applications, including navigation, domestic waterway transport, and international waterway transport. Navigation barges are used by several industries for transportation of goods from one place to another on account of their large capacity coupled with low cost as compared to trucks or trains.

Barges used in domestic waterways transport generally have lower capacities as compared to those utilized in international or coastal waters due largely to technological limitations imposed by nature along with economic constraints that act as barriers preventing widespread utilization across all types of waterways within a country or region.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region is home to some of the largest economies, such as China and India. Increasing waterway transportation across these countries has led to an increase in demand for barge bumpers in this region. In addition, growing trade activities between Asia Pacific countries have resulted in an increased requirement for efficient transport facilities, thereby driving product demand across this region.

Europe also held a significant share of global revenue owing to high maritime transportation activities across several nations including Belgium, Denmark, France Germany Italy Netherlands Norway Sweden UK along with other Eastern & Central European countries that are members of EU (European Union).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for barges in transportation and logistics industry
  • Rising investment in infrastructure development
  • Growing popularity of inland waterways transport as an eco-friendly alternative to road and rail transport
  • Proliferation of containerization and increasing demand for intermodal transportation services
  • Technological advancements that improve the efficiency and safety of barge operations
