Drivers and Restraints of Market:

Several goods containers from different industries such as automotive, chemicals and materials, petrochemicals, and consumer goods, are transported every year in various regions including the Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Recently, the maximum transportation of containers has been noticed from Asian and Middle East countries. According to the World Shipping Council, of the top 50 container port terminals in terms of handling million TEU in 2015, around 30 were in Asia and the Middle East. Such a high volume of demand and trade has ignited the demand in the global container handling equipment market.

Container handling equipment is high-powered equipment that ranges from 140 to 550 kW. These devices are used in harsh working conditions. They also require constant monitoring to achieve the desired productivity. In the monitoring of equipment performance, there has been a huge change with the adoption of different technologies. By increasing the automation associated with this equipment, issues related to safety and security have been eradicated, which provided additional benefits such as real-time information of engine performance, fuel economy, tire pressure, HVAC, and maintenance and services.


The additional capital cost associated with container handling equipment is expected to hamper the growth of the market. Also, when integrated container handling equipment is installed in an industry, failure of any part of the equipment results in downtime of the production system. Furthermore, the high maintenance of the equipment has also become a factor that slows the growth of the market.

What are the Challenges facing the Container Handling Equipment Industry?

Innovations and technology have played a major role in giving a new face to the container handling industry. New container handling equipment includes modern technologies, such as touch screen displays, cameras, AI technology, and multiple sensors, to improve productivity and processes. However, these technologies have made the machines more convoluted. Also, continuous R&D efforts have resulted in products that are highly advanced and capable of handling multiple tasks.

All the steps involved in the designing, production, and distribution of this equipment require huge investments, which is, in turn, need to be brought even by raising the costs of the equipment. Additionally, the rising focus on cabin comfort and the constantly changing emission norms require equipment manufacturers to enhance their products, which further increases the expenditure. Therefore, the higher cost of container handling equipment may be a hindering factor that will adversely affect the business growth.
