New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/04/2016 -- Shipping containers are rectangular steel boxes that are widely used for transportation of goods and other commodities via both, seaborne and land-based modes of transport, involving the use of ships, trucks and rail. Moreover, besides facilitating intermodal transport, use of containers facilitates minimum handling of the goods by eliminating the need for loading and unloading of the goods at intermediate points during the transit. Shipping containers are classified into four major types, namely dry containers, reefer containers, tank containers, and others. Dry containers, by far, are the most widely used shipping containers across the globe.
The global shipping containers market is expected to expand at a steady CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast period from 2015 to 2021, to reach a market value of US$ 11.47 Bn by 2021.
Drivers and Trends
The increasing containerization of global seaborne trade, i.e. the growing adoption of shipping containers for transportation of goods, is another factor that is expected to drive the growth of the global shipping containers market over the forecast period. However, slower economic growth across certain parts of the globe, such as
Europe and Asia, is likely to affect the global trade, thus translating into a slower growth of the global shipping containers market during the forecast period.
