Dredging Market Projected to Experience Major Revenue Boost during the Period between 2017 to 2022

Dec 26th 2018 at 4:39 AM

The global dredging market has witnessed its share of ups and downs over past decade, and especially during post economic crisis years. However, with the recovery in global economy, the global trade grew significantly. Spurt in global infrastructure activities has necessitated the need for expansion of existing ports, and development of new ones. Additionally, considering the fact that over 85% of global trade is carried out through sea trade, maintaining existing pathways and creating new ones has gained prominence.

According to UNCTAD, global seaborne trade volumes surpassed 10 billion tons in 2015, with shipments expanding by over 2%. The outlook on global seaborne trade remains overly positive, with seaborne trade volume growth projection of over 3% for next five year. Furthermore, upcoming projects, such as One Belt and One Road Initiative (OBOR) likely to provide growth opportunities to dredging industry.

The need for robust seaborne infrastructure vis-à-vis dredging services can also be appraised by looking at the emphasis as well as investment governments are bucketing for seaborne infrastructure. Realizing the potential, European bigwigs jumped on the driving seat long back and has been stirring the industry.

With the world population expanding in the coastal areas, more land requires to be protected and reclaimed. In addition, a rise in sea levels has been observed, on the back of global warming, is increasing risk of natural calamities, particularly in the coastal areas. Owing to these incidences, the dredging market has been gaining traction over the past few years.

Various initiatives are being taken by the governments as well as the global leaders in the dredging market, in order to support and enhance the dredging activities. For example – the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), along with five ports of the Lower Columbia River are commencing process of public scoping for preparing a long-term maintenance plan and an integrated statement of environmental impact for the federal navigation channel of the Lower Columbia River. Such initiatives will continue to influence growth of the dredging market in the near future.

Dredging Market: Opportunities Abundant in Urban Development

While dredging seeks extensive application across various areas ranging from trade activity to coastal protection, revenues from dredging activities in urban development will increase at a relatively higher rate through 2022, according to the study. Rapid rise in urbanization has resulted in development of cities in terms of growth and innovation in recent years. The 2016 report of the UN Habitat states that over 54% of the global population resides in cities. With urbanization illustrating no signs of abating, more people are moving to cities, thereby putting pressure on administrators to offer space amidst influx of population density growth in their area.

In dredging market, land reclamation is gaining traction as go-to option among city planners, who deal with overwhelming pressures of urbanization. This has further led to immense requirement for dredging activities, which in turn has been favoring growth of the dredging market. Urban development entailed requirement for dredging has remained dominant in the dredging market, and the status quo is likely to prevail in the near future.

The swell in infrastructure activities worldwide has driven the requirement for expansion of the existing ports, along with the development of new ones. This has further underpinned expansion of the dredging market significantly. Considering the fact that, bulk activities of the global trade are carried out via sea, maintenance of existing pathways, while creating new ones, is gaining increased emphasis. Dredging activities related to trade maintenance are likely to hold major revenue share of the dredging market, second to that of urban development related activities.

Preeminence of Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) in the dredging market is likely to prevail in the upcoming years. In North America, majority of the dredging market is likely to remain consolidated in the U.S. Revenues from the dredging market in the U.S are set to exceed US$ 1,300 Mn by 2022-end. In Europe, the U.K., France and Germany will collaboratively lead the dredging market, with the study estimating these European countries to collectively account for US$ 1,800 Mn revenues by 2022-end.
