The global dry bulk shipping market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.14% to reach $399.353 billion by 2024 from $313.077 billion in 2018. A bulk carrier is a seagoing vessel that is specially designed to transport that have a higher tolerance to heat and cold and unpackaged bulk cargo such as grains, coal, ores, etc. in its cargo holds. As dry cargo shipment doesn't require special types of precautions (as required for carrying liquid and gases), dry bulk carriers don't have onboard temperature control equipment. Today, the bulk of international trade is carried out by thousands of dry cargo carriers transporting goods to ports across the world.

Factors such as high economic growth, rising population, and rapid urbanization, and growing steel production are boosting the need for shipping various materials used across different industries. Stronger industrial production across the globe has benefitted from the dry bulk shipping market. Improving charter rates will also have a positive impact on the market during the forecast period. As the name suggests, dry bulk cargoes need to be kept dry, any moisture that finds its way into the cargo could ruin the entire load, at considerable cost to the ship-owner. It may also be surprising to learn that many dry bulk cargoes are classified as ‘Dangerous Goods' requiring special attention during loading, transportation, and discharge, as they could shift during shipment, causing ship instability and is also hampering the growth of the market during the forecast period.
