According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Container Fleet Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028”, the global container fleet market size reached US$ 11.8 Billion in 2022. Container fleet refers to a group of shipping containers which are owned, leased, or operated by one company or organization, and is an integral part of the global shipping industry. These containers enable goods to be transported via sea, land, or air in a standardized manner. Made from high-strength steel, they can withstand the stress of long-distance transport and are designed to meet industrial specifications, making them easily loaded and unloaded onto ships, trucks, and trains without the need for repacking. As a result of standardized container sizes, intermodal transportability, and advanced logistics systems that optimize goods' movement from origin to destination, container fleets serve as a primary means of transporting goods over long distances efficiently and securely. Some of the advantages of container fleets include cost-effective transportation, better security, increased efficiency, and higher flexibility.
Global Container Fleet Market Trends:
The global market is majorly driven by considerable growth in e-commerce industry and the growing cross-border trading activities. This can be attributed to the inflating disposable income levels of the masses and economic growth in emerging economies. In line with this, rapid industrialization is resulting in an escalating demand for more raw materials, finished products, and consumer goods, which, in turn, is resulting in a higher uptake of containerized cargo transportation. Moreover, the growing need to enhance supply chain efficiency and reduce inventory costs due to the growing volumes of shipping is also providing an impetus to the market. Besides this, the rising stringency in environmental regulations is leading to rising pressure for shipping companies to reduce their carbon footprint, leading to the adoption of fuel-efficient container fleet. The market is further fueled by the continual technological advancements in container fleet applications to streamline operations, such as the use of automation, data analytics, and blockchain technology, and reduce costs. Apart from this, numerous strategies adopted by key players, such as merger and acquisitions (M&As), partnerships and collaborations are propelling the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include rising development of intermodal transportation infrastructure, the growing prevalence of one-day or two-day delivery systems, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 17.4 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.5% during 2023-2028.
