In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the growth and development of the shipping industry as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global core materials market:
Growth and development of the shipping industry
In the marine industry, materials such as foam and balsa are used for the construction of luxury yachts, leisure boats, sailboats, and powerboats. Foam core materials increase the durability and mechanical strength. They can endure high processing temperatures and exhibit low water absorption.
Sea trade accounts for more than 90% of the trade, which makes maritime transport crucial to the global economy. The World Trade Organization estimated that the seaborne freight accounted for more than 30% of the world transport, in 2015.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for plastics, polymers, and elastomers, “The global seaborne trade volumes exceeded 10 billion ton in 2015. Maritime transport brings together consumers and the intermediate and capital goods industries, which makes it a prominent factor that is leading globalization. Maritime transport promotes industrial development by supporting manufacturing, trade integration, and economic growth. In 2015, dry cargo transport alone accounted for more than 70% of the total seaborne trade volumes, and the remaining share was contributed by crude oil, petroleum products, and gas.”
