Key Market Trends
High Cost Involved in the Operation of Container Handling Equipment

The container handling equipment are use specific and thus require a different equipment to carry out specific job. However, continuous R&D efforts have resulted in products that are highly advanced and capable of handling multiple tasks. These machineries include complex mechatronic systems that require specialized manufacturing and assembly processes. All the steps involved in the designing, production and distribution of this equipment require huge investments, which is reflected in the cost of the machinery made available to the customers. This huge cost may hinder the demand in the market during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific Remains as the Market leader

The Asia-Pacific region consists of major developing economies of the world such as China and India, where a large volume of containers is exported and imported from the ports of these countries owing to the high requirement of raw materials and final products. This requires high volume of containers and to handle these containers, the requirement of container handling equipment has increased significantly in the region over the past five years. Asia Pacific dominates the global container handling equipment market in revenue terms owing to high volume of cargo being transported from emerging economies such as China, India, and Japan. As per the data of the World Shipping Council, 7 of the top ten container port terminals, in terms of volume, in 2015 belonged to China with a capacity of around 130.2 million TEUs annually which is expected to go up during the forecast period because of the development of many new ports in the country. Other factors such as high infrastructural spending by regional authorities to improve port terminals, and increased import & export activities would drive the container handling equipment market in this region.
