Multiple Factors to Boost Market Growth
The worldwide dry bulk shipping sector is expected to increase significantly. The expansion of seaborne trade and a rise in iron ore and coal transportation are predicted to drive demand for dry bulk shipping. International trade, import/export of food and manufactured products, and bulk transportation of raw materials are all critical components of any economy. As stated by the International Chamber of Shipping, the international shipping sector handles approximately 90% of global trade. The increased liberalization and industrialization of national economies have resulted in a rise in demand for iron ore and coal, which is mostly fulfilled by industries through seaborne trade. Coal and iron ore are the main raw resources utilized in the production of power and the construction of long-term infrastructure. The rapid increase in electricity demand has boosted the requirement for coal imports and exports. Such factors drive the dry bulk shipping market.
Segmental Analysis
For an enhanced dry bulk shipping market analysis, MRFR has outlined the top segments in the report, namely type as well as application.
The types of dry bulk shipping include panama, capesize, handysize and supramax. The capesize type can be the leading segment in the market as a result of the high demand for transporting iron ore, commodity raw materials and coal.
The key applications of dry bulk shipping are coal, iron ore, bauxite/alumina, phosphate rock and grains. Over the coming years, it is expected that the ironore segment will dominate the worldwide market, with iron ore being the biggest traded commodity across countries.
Regional Analysis
China to Lead the Global Market
China is set to lead the dry bulk shipping market, followed by Europe. China's GDP rate in 2017 was 6.9%. This significant growth rate bodes well for Chinese shipping and maritime trade, especially dry bulk shipping. Such expansion is backed by a considerable increase in iron ore imports to China, a resurgence in the worldwide coal trade, and improved growth in minor bulk commodities. Overall, China's robust import demand for iron ore is the main driver of global dry bulk trade growth.
China's industrial activities and manufacturing improved significantly in 2017. In 2017, industrial production grew by 6.5%, compared to a 6% gain in 2016. As per UNCTAD, in 2018, China was the biggest ship-owning country in terms of vessel numbers, with 5,512 commercial ships weighing 1,000 tonnes or more. Such elements, when added together, drive the expansion of the country's dry bulk shipping market.
