Global Ports and Terminal Operation Market is valued approximately USD XX billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 2.0 % over the forecast period 2020-2027. A terminal would be part of a port. A port usually describes the location where the ships are lodging and carrying out activities. There can be multiple terminals within a port through which cargo transits from sea to land. A terminal refers to the specific portion of a port dedicated to some type of activity, like containers as well as bulks. Rising utility & demand of containerization is driving the market. According to Statista, the global container market is projected to rise by 4.8 per cent between 2020 and 2021. In 2018 the global market volume reached approximately 146.4 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU). APM-Maersk is the leading container ship operator in the world, with a fleet of more than 600 container ships. Shanghai port is world’s busiest container port. In 2018 we handled around 42 million twenty-foot equivalent units here. Growth in regional trade and increased use of IoT solutions will offer tremendous opportunities for growth. According to World Shipping Council, More than 200 countries have container ships which are open to ports. Ports quantify the volume of twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) containers wjich they handle. Containers which are handled by all ports around the world (including empties, transshipments and port handling) are estimated at over 785 million TEU in 2018. Managing congestion risk, increased operational complexity, and consolidation of the liner industry may hinder market growth. Vendors must focus on growth prospects in the fast-growing segments, and at the same time maintaining their positions in the slow-growing segments to make the most of opportunities.
