Report ID: 211129 3300 Machinery & Equipment 377 232 Pages 4.9 (43)

Market Overview:

The global sand dredgers 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 factors such as increasing demand for sand in construction and other applications, and rising investments in port infrastructure development projects across the globe. Based on type, the global sand dredgers market can be segmented into hydraulic dredges, hopper dredges, and mechanical dredges. Hydraulic dredges are expected to account for a major share of the market owing to their high efficiency and low maintenance costs. Based on application, the market can be segmented into harbor construction & maintenance, channel deepening & widening, beach nourishment & land reclamation projects, and others (including riverbank protection works). Harbor construction & maintenance is estimated to account for a major share of the global sand dredgers market due to increasing investments in port infrastructure development projects across regions such as North America, Latin America Europe Asia Pacific ,and Middle East Africa .

Global Sand Dredgers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A sand dredger is a boat or ship that removes sand from the bottom of a body of water. The importance of sand dredgers is that they help keep waterways and ports clear so boats can move through them easily.

Hydraulic Dredges:

Hydraulic dredges are used for recovering valuable minerals and metals from the earth's surface. They are widely used in various industries such as construction, mining, etc. The global market is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period owing to its increasing demand across different industry verticals including construction & infrastructural development and automotive sector.

Hopper Dredges:

Hopper dredges are used in sand dredgers for removing silt and mud from the seabed. The mechanism consists of a hopper, which is lowered by chains to the desired position. As soon as the desired amount of material is collected in the hopper, it is raised back to surface level by chains and then sent back to sea/ocean for disposal.

Application Insights:

The channel segment held the largest share of over 60.0% in 2017. The growth is attributed to the extensive use in channels and canals for dredging operations on a large scale, particularly in China, India, Vietnam and other countries in Asia Pacific region. Dredging operations are majorly carried out during low water periods when the riverbeds are shallowest as this method offers flexibility with regard to scheduling while providing maximum productivity at minimum cost.

The harbor application segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to its increasing use for cleaning silty mud from harbors globally including Los Angeles, New York City and Shanghai among others. Harbor applications also offer an extended reach capability which enables easy access into deeper waters without having to turn sharply thus reducing operational costs significantly as compared with turning basin or pond dredging methods commonly used before sand dredgers were introduced commercially worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has witnessed a significant increase in sand mining activities, which is anticipated to drive demand for equipment used for dredging operations. China, India, Vietnam and Indonesia are among the largest producers of raw materials used in construction industry owing to availability of low-cost labor and raw material suppliers nearby. This trend is projected to provide growth opportunities for manufacturers operating within Asia Pacific over the next eight years.

North America accounted for a significant share of revenue generated by SandDredgers™ Market™ in 2017 due to presence of prominent players such as Doosan Heavy Industries Co., Ltd., Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd.; Kishida Engineering Corporation; Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation; Samsung C&T Corp.; Tokyo Tsusho Electric Company; UES Inc.; etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for sand in construction industry
  • Growing population and rapid urbanization
  • Development of new dredging technologies and equipment
  • Rising prices of natural sand
  • Stringent government regulations for environmental protection
