Growing global container traffic: a major market driver
Growing global container traffic is one of the major factors driving the global shipping container market. The global container traffic is growing progressively after a steep decline in 2009. The steep decline in container traffic growth is mainly because of the after-effects of the global recession in 2008. The global shipping container market is one of the few markets that showed a quick recovery after the recession. The developing inter-Asia and intra-Asia trade and growth in the global economy are the two main factors that helped the growth of the global container traffic. For instance, in 2016, China and India signed around 24 agreements that pave the way for trade possibilities worth around USD 23 billion. Also, many Asian countries are creating trade barrier liberalization to encourage inter-Asian trade possibilities.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for logistics research, “These approaches by Asian countries are reducing the gap between two key world trade routes, namely, the Far Eastern-Europa and Far Eastern North America. All these trade possibilities are expected to influence the demand for containers among various end-users across the globe.”
