In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the increased seaborne iron ore trade as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global iron ore market:
Increased seaborne iron ore trade
A major challenge for iron ore producers is the efficiently designed logistic services. As major iron ore producers export their product to international customers, they prefer integrated rail, road, and seaway logistic system. Among these, seaborne iron ore trade is a major driver for the iron ore export and import market. When compared to other means of logistics, nearly 90% of the global merchandise is carried by sea. Globalization of economies led to an increasing demand for the shipping industry in export and import of enormous amount of goods. Simultaneously, it resulted in various international trade benefits such as lower freight cost and economy of scale, among others.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for metals and minerals, “In 2017, the demand for the global seaborne iron ore in China accounted for more than 60% of the share by volume. This is attributed to the growing steel manufacturing market and its demand from various end-user industries. Such factors are expected to drive the global iron ore market during the forecast period.”
