Refrigerated Sea Transportation


Wiseguyreports.Com Adds “Refrigerated Sea Transportation -Market Demand, Growth, Opportunities, and Forecast, 2016 - 2020” To Its Research Database.

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global refrigerated sea transportation market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period. An increase in international trade and the growing demand for refrigerated transportation of perishable goods are driving the growth of this market. For instance, according to a UNCTAD report, the International Seaborne Trade market shipped nearly 9 billion metric tons during 2014. The growth in China's domestic demand and the rising trade among Asian countries have further fueled the demand for seaborne trade.

However, the capital-intensive nature of this market and the high cost of maintenance is expected to pose challenges to the market growth during the forecast period. Container and reefer vessel operators and owners require huge investments and infrastructure to build and maintain reefer fleet. The maintenance cost for a fleet is also quite high due to various cost components such as maintenance of engines and tugs, crew expenses, and regular MRO expenses.
