Drivers & Restraints-

Lower Environmental Impact and Increased Efficiency to Foster Market Progress

Cargo shipping produces lower emissions than normal transportation methods, increasing its adoption. For example, as per the Swedish Network for Transport and the Environment, shipping via cargo produces lower exhaust gas per ton of transported cargo than air, rail, or road transport. Furthermore, cargo shipping is extremely efficient and can transport nearly 10,000 goods and products on a large containership. Various carriers partner with shipping industry startups for collecting cargo vessels and movements to provide enhanced vessel deployments. These factors may drive the cargo shipping market growth. However, trade tensions may likely hinder the market’s progress.

COVID-19 Impact-

Trade Restrictions and Lower Good Capacities to Impede Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to affect this market negatively because of trade restrictions and lower good capacities. The sudden spike in cases led to the adoption of strict lockdown norms, thereby affecting global trade activities. Furthermore, increasing transport restrictions may lead to raw material shortages, thereby affecting the supply chain. However, adopting social distancing, sanitization methods, technologically advanced production methods, and part-time shifts may enable manufacturers to reduce costs and boost production. This factor may enable growth during the pandemic.
