Port and Material Handling Equipment Vehicle Market To Register Exponential Compound Annual Growth Rate Through 2022 – 2031 : Fact.MR

The global port and material handling equipment vehicle market is expected to be worth nearly US$ 10 billion by 2031, with a CAGR of around 5% over the forecast period, according to a recently published report by award-winning consulting firm Fact.MR. The overall increase in global trade and transportation activities has a significant impact on growth.

Rapid port infrastructure development in key countries such as China, India, Singapore, and South Korea, according to the report, is increasing uptake, particularly in the container management segment. According to the 2020 e-handbook of statistics from UNCTAD, developing economies in Asia and Oceania handled 62% of global port container traffic. Furthermore, global container port traffic increased by 2% between 2018 and 2019.
