Marine Cranes Market Trends

  • Growing load and unload containers to boost market growth

Marine cranes are mostly used to load and unload containers from ports onto ships and vice versa. The UNCTAD estimates that global maritime trade was approximately 11 billion tons in 2018, which will rise at an annual pace of 3.4% from 2019 to 2024.

There is an increase in the introduction of fresh, creative designs with the following generation; the oil and gas industry's use of modular offshore technology cranes may present a sizable possibility for expanding the marine crane market. For instance, in 2019, Thunder Crane Company introduced an offshore portable, modular crane of the next generation to support a combined turret for reducing rig up and rig down times. For the oil and gas business, this crane was built with specially developed Appleton hoists that are lightweight, allow for enhanced line speed, and have higher rope capacity.

During the forecast period, the market is anticipated to be driven by increased offshore exploration and production operations. Economic growth and technological advancements in the manufacturing sector have improved manufacturers' productivity across industries. The industrial sector is using digitalization to produce goods for consumers that are both affordable and of high quality. Governments worldwide are trying to enhance the computerization and digitalization of several industry verticals, including oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, automotive and transportation, electrical and hardware, and medications. Oil and gas production is one of the most capital-intensive industries since it calls for expensive tools, equipment, procedures, and highly skilled labor. Through the projected period, these factors are anticipated to drive the market. Additionally, the market will be supported during the projected period by a boom in the subsea construction and vessel industries and increased government initiatives. Therefore, such factors have enhanced the Marine Cranes market CAGR globally in recent years.

However, the increase in government backing for building projects and the explosive growth of the global oil & gas business implants is another factor driving the Marine Cranes market revenue growth.

Marine Cranes Market Segment Insights:

Marine Cranes Lifting Capacity Insights

Based on Lifting Capacity, the Marine Cranes Market segmentation includes 2 Tons–500 Tons, 501 Tons–15000 Tons, 15001 Tons–30000 Tons, and Others. The 501 Tons–15000 Tons segment held the majority share in 2021, contributing to around ~45% concerning the Marine Cranes Market revenue. The increase in oil exploration and production from growing nations like China, India, and the Middle East is expected to contribute to this expansion. According to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, the Asia-Pacific and Middle East area has built half of the world's total capacity for oil and natural gas refineries or 9.5 million barrels per day. Around 3.7 mb/d, or 20% of the total, can be used to explore the Middle East.

Marine Cranes Type Insights

Based on type, the Marine Cranes Market segmentation includes knuckle boom, telescopic boom, and stick boom. The Knuckle Boom segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. This s due to increased oil exploration and production activities and the installation of offshore wind farms to produce renewable energy. For instance, according to current reports, Europe has plans to build a sizable, floating offshore wind turbine at sea on March 31, 2020. In 2019, the average size of offshore turbines installed was 7.8 MW, according to the trade group WindEurope. According to research by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists Organization, Germany, Spain, Norway, France, and Denmark have all worked to lower the cost of producing floating offshore wind energy. Hence, rising applications of implants for Marine Cranes positively impact the market growth.

Marine Cranes Application Insights

Based on Application, the global Marine Cranes industry has been segmented into oil & gas platforms, government & military, Workboats Research & Fishing Vessels, and research & fishing vessels. Oil & gas platforms held the largest segment share in 2021 due to the numerous oil and gas firms' use of maritime cranes for exploration due to increased global demand. The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that by 2040, all forms of offshore energy will need around USD 4.6 trillion in capital investments to support global sustainable development. As a result, the marine crane market, essential for moving heavy loads during oil and gas exploration, will see a significant increase in opportunity.

The fastest-growing segment in the Marine Cranes industry is government & military. Due to the increased need for maritime cranes employed by government organizations, renewable energy firms, and ports to transport goods.
