The RTG is expected to be the fastest growing cargo handling equipment from 2018 to 2025.

RTG is a mobile equipment used in intermodal operations to ground or stack containers at sea ports. RTGs are installed with diesel, electric, or hybrid engines. Last few years have seen a significant increase in seaborne trade across different industry verticals, including automotive, chemicals, agriculture, textiles, and pharmaceuticals. Increased seaborne trade has, in turn, increased the demand for cargo handlers for quick loading and transportation of cargo at the port terminals. UNCTAD has estimated that cargo volumes would grow at a CAGR of 3.2% between 2017 and 2022.

Cargo flows are set to expand across all segments, which will drive the demand for increased cargo handling capacity of the ports. Additionally, stringent emission norms are increasing the demand for electric cargo handling equipment to reduce the fleet level emission. These factors have increased the demand for sophisticated cargo handling equipment such as RTG, which can carry load up to 40 tons at a time, in electric and hybrid variants.

Asia Pacific: The largest cargo handling equipment market

As per the World Bank, China is the global leader in cargo handling capacity and accounted for 28.5% of the total cargo moved in 2017. According to MarketsandMarkets’ analyses, the cargo handling capacity in Asia stood at around 40–42% in terms of value in 2018. The ports in Shanghai (China), Shenzhen (China), Hong Kong, Ningbo-Zhoushan (China), Singapore, and Keihin (Japan) handle millions of TEU annually, which is driving the growth of the market in Asia Pacific. This trend is estimated to continue and, to handle the increasing cargo traffic, an increase in the demand for cargo handling equipment as well as automation at ports is expected in the region in coming years.
