The cargo shipping industry is segmented on the basis of cargo and industry type. Infrastructure initiatives such as development of new ports and extension of existing ports leads to growth of the cargo shipping market. Container cargos load food, manufacturing industry's raw materials and electrical & electronic goods. Liquid bulk cargos are loaded with oil from the oilfields at sea – to do this they moor bow type tankers, known as shuttle tankers. Developing economies in Asia-Pacific account for the significant market share; especially China, since it is a major exporter. Growth rate in Europe is presently steady and is expected to grow in the near future; owing to various initiatives by the European Union.
