Inland Vessel Market Statistics 2021-2030:

The global inland vessel market was valued at $1,698.24 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $2,500.40 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 3.9% from 2021 to 2030.

Inland vessels are mechanically propelled vessels that float over water and are propelled through mechanical drives installed within the vessel. Inland vessels are designed in such a way that they can transport passengers as well as cargo from one place to another. Inland vessels are designed in such a way that they can operate in waters of a particular country unlike seas and ocean that is classified as international waters. Inland waterway vessels offer an excellent mode of transporting goods since they have higher loading capacity than road vehicles. Besides, inland waterways vessels also serve to bring down traffic on roads. Industry players are continuously investing in R&D to increase efficiency of inland waterways vessels and improve the safety significantly.

Factors such as increase in demand for cargo transportation through ships, rise in trade-related agreements, and technological advancements in boats & boat engines supplements growth of the global inland vessel market. However, factors such as fluctuations in transportation & inventory costs and environmental concerns associated with recreational boating hampers growth of the market during the forecast period. Moreover, factors such as anticipated trend of automation in marine transportation and increase in marine safety norms are the factors that are expected to create positive impact on growth of global inland vessel market during the forecast period.

The global inland vessel market is segmented on the basis of vessel type, fuel type, application, and region. By vessel type, the global market has been segmented into passenger vessel and non-passenger vessel. By fuel type, it is segmented into LNG, diesel oil, heavy fuel oil, and others. By application, it is segmented into oil tankers, bulk carriers, general cargo ships, container ships, and others. Region wise, the global market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. 

The key players profiled in the global inland vessel market includes companies such as Alnmaritec Ltd., Groupe Beneteau, CMA CGM Group, Damen Shipyards Group, EURO-RIJN B.V., Hodder Tugboat Co. Ltd., DSME, Viking Shipping, SANMAR, and Windcat Workboats BV. 

Increase in demand for cargo transportation through ships

Rise has been witnessed in demand for transportation of cargo through waterways. This is attributed to the fact that a number of cargos are efficiently transferred to other end through ships along with ensuring security of the cargo. Moreover, cargo ships are less expensive for shipping goods as compared to roads and air transits, as through ships large volume of cargo can be transported from one place to another as compared to other transportation means. As per the records of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), which deals with trade, development, and investment issues across the globe, approximately 1,687 million tons of cargo are transported every year in around 177.6 million containers covering 998 billion ton-miles. Recent developments in commercial vessels and innovations by giant players for better and efficient cargo ships equipped with latest technology such as advanced sensors and navigation systems are anticipated to boost demand for cargo transportation through ships. This eventually is leading to growth of the inland vessels market across the globe.

Non-Passenger Vessel is projected as the most lucrative segments

Rise in trade-related agreements

Numerous trade-related agreements have been carried out between developed and developing nations to transport goods. Thus, suppliers have shifted their preference toward waterways as a better and efficient means of transportation. This increased inclination has led cargo vessel manufacturers to develop better and efficient container carriers of different sizes and capacities, which has fueled the growth of the global market. In addition, free trade agreements has enabled a reduction in duties and taxes. 

Furthermore, increase has been witnessed in trade activities as exporters and importers need not pay taxes to the government. Countries in trade blocs are lifting bans and making trade more flexible. Hence, rise in trade-related agreements leads to increase in demand for stronger containers, thereby supplementing growth of the global inland vessel market.

Fluctuations in transportation and inventory costs

Carrying goods from one place to another requires a suitable mode of transportation, which means there should be an efficient usage of the medium. The cost incurred in transportation and holding inventory is another important factor that has a deepening impact on logistics. Price is the most significant factor that affects overall logistics services from the first function till the goods are delivered. This continuous fluctuation in transportation and inventory cost of materials has affected the shipping industry by enabling customers to opt different methods to transport goods, which eventually restrains growth of the global shipping containers market.

Trend of automation in marine transportation

Rise in trend of automation and demonstration of autonomous ships by giants have enabled numerous companies to contribute toward the development of advanced and autonomous ships to be used in passenger and cargo transportation, which eventually leads to growth of the shipping industry. For instance, Rolls Royce and Finland-based ferry operator, Finferries demonstrated world’s first fully autonomous ferry. 

In addition, Norwegian built Yara Birkeland is a fully autonomous container ship, which is intended to carry containers, and is expected to start operating by 2020. In addition, Norway-based Kongsberg partnered with Yara to develop all electric vessels by 2020. Similar developments carried across the globe by different companies increase the safety and security of the goods as well as the passengers on-board by reducing the human errors. Hence, the anticipated trend of automation in marine transportation is expected to provide potential opportunities to the shipping container industry.
