Container Handling Equipment Market by Type (ASC, STS, MHC, RTG, RMG, EMPTY and Laden FLT, Straddle Carrier, Reach Stacker, Terminal Tractor), Tonnage (<10 T, 10-40 T, 41-70 T, 71-100 T), Propulsion, Engine Capacity, Power Output - Global Forecast to 2025

The increase in cargo transportation and need for automation to handle increased cargo volumes is expected to drive the market for automated container handling equipment, while increased stringency in emission regulations shall drive the demand for electric and hybrid equipment.

The container handling equipment market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.24%, during the forecast period, to reach a market size of USD 8.75 billion by 2025, from an estimated USD 6.28 billion in 2017. Increased focus on fleet-level emission reduction supported by rising stringency in emission norms and growing emphasis on port automation are the key drivers for this market. Alternatively, the high capital costs of container handling equipment and lack of synchronization among different equipment can hinder the growth of the market.

The 41-70 tons segment is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.

The 41-70 tons segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. According to the Port Equipment Manufacturers’ Association, of the total number of ship-to-shore cranes and rubber-tired gantry cranes sold in 2015, around 79.3% and 64.2%, respectively, were in the 41-70 ton range. Also, other equipment types such as straddle carriers, reach stackers, and mobile harbor cranes are offered in this tonnage capacity range. Growing containerized traffic in this capacity range at key port terminals is expected to drive the 41-70 tons container handling equipment market.

The >10 liter segment is estimated to hold the largest share of the container handling equipment market, by engine capacity.

Equipment such as mobile harbor cranes, laden forklift trucks, straddle carriers and reach stackers are used to stack laden containers. This equipment is used for extended periods under harsh conditions and therefore requires powerful and efficient engines that deliver optimum performance with minimal maintenance. The demand for higher capacity engines is greater in Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East due to the increased container throughput in these regions. The port terminals in countries such as China, Singapore, Germany, South Korea, and the UAE handle around ~15-35 million TEUs every year and which will increase in the future. Hence, to cater to the increased demand, these port terminals require equipment with powerful engines for smooth and reliable operation.

Asia Pacific: The largest and fastest-growing container handling equipment market from 2017 to 2025.

The market in Asia Pacific is expected to lead the container handling equipment market, in terms of value, during the forecast period. Countries such as China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and India are the key markets for such equipment. As per the World Shipping Council, of the top 10 container port terminals in terms of maximum volume in 2015, 7 are located in China with a capacity of around 130.2 million TEUs annually, followed by Singapore, South Korea, and the UAE. Furthermore, the ports of Shanghai (China), Singapore, Shenzhen (China), Hong Kong, S.A.R. (China), and Busan (South Korea) handle more than 19 million TEU annually. Additionally, the small and medium ports in countries such as India, Thailand, and Malaysia offer potential for the growth of this market.

The container handling equipment market is projected to reach USD 8.75 Billion by 2025, from an estimated USD 6.28 Billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 4.24%, during the forecast period. The shifting focus to port terminal automation, rising demand for electric and hybrid equipment for lower emissions and fuel consumption, and increased demand in Asia Pacific are expected to drive the market for container handling equipment during the forecast period.

The diesel based equipment segment is expected to hold the largest market share in 2017 due to the efficient power delivery, low fuel costs, and inadequate/insufficient electric infrastructure at small and medium terminals. Also, the stringent emission regulations for NOx, PM, and CO2 by the US EPA and European Union have prompted equipment manufacturers to offer fuel-efficient equipment with lower emissions. Hence, equipment manufacturers are focusing on the development and sale of electric and hybrid equipment.

The automated stacking crane (ASC) market is expected to grow at the fastest rate from 2017 to 2025. The growing demand for automation at port terminals across the globe is one of the key reasons for the growth of this market segment. These cranes are capable of picking up, placing, and stacking containers automatically leading to increased productivity and container throughput. Few port terminals such as Thamesport (UK), PSA (Singapore), and Container Terminal Altenwerder (Germany) have increased their automation levels using these cranes. Thus, the growing demand for greenfield port terminals with high reliability and efficiency would drive the ASC market in the coming years.

The 201-300 kW segment is expected the be the largest container handling equipment market, by power output. Most container handling equipment, including laden forklift trucks, RTG, reach stackers, terminal tractors, and straddle carriers, are offered in the range of 201-300 kW. The reason for the growth of this segment is the adequate power output delivered by the equipment in this range which helps achieve optimum performance. Around 60-65% of the reach stackers and straddle carriers offered by manufacturers such as Kalmar, Konecranes, and CVS Ferrari are in the range of 201-300 kW. Due to the high demand for equipment in this range, engine manufacturers such as Volvo and Cummins are also providing wide options to manufacturers. Thus, the growing demand for container handling equipment due to increased container traffic would drive the market for the 201-300 kW power output segment.

Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) is expected to be the largest market, by volume, due to the robust economies of European countries such as Germany, the UK, and Spain, along with the presence of leading manufacturers for container handling equipment. Konecranes, Kalmar, Liebherr, MAFI Transport-Systeme, CVS Ferrari, and CES-VRS are key manufacturers catering to the container handling equipment market through dealer and distribution networks. Also, this region has a high adoption rate of automation technologies. Equipment with high automation levels increases productivity. This region is home to automated terminals such as the ECT Delta Port terminal (Netherlands) and the HHLA CTA terminal (Germany). The number of automated terminals is expected to increase in this region further driving the growth of the container handling equipment market.

The high capital costs of container handling equipment are one of the key restraints for the growth of the container handling equipment market. Also, the lack of synchronization among different equipment types acts as a challenge for this market. These factors may affect the growth of the container handling equipment market in the near future.

Some of the key container handling equipment manufacturers and suppliers include Kalmar (Finland), Konecranes (Finland), Liebherr (Switzerland), Hyster (US), Sany (China), ZPMC (China), Lonking (China), Anhui Heli (China), CVS Ferrari (Italy), and Hoist Liftruck (US). Kalmar adopted a mix of the contracts & agreements and mergers & acquisitions strategies to retain its market position, while Konecranes also followed these strategies to remain a prominent player in the market.
