The Container Handling Equipment Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.24%, during the forecast period, to reach a market size of USD 8.75 billion by 2025. Increased cargo transportation, growing use of automation technologies at port terminals, stringent emission levels resulting in the increased demand for electric and hybrid equipment, and the rising demand in Asia Pacific and the Middle East are the key factors driving the growth of the container handling equipment market.
The container handling equipment market is dominated by a few global players and comprises several regional players. Some of the key manufacturers and suppliers in the container handling equipment market are Kalmar (Finland), Konecranes (Finland), Liebherr (Switzerland), Hyster (US), Sany (China), ZPMC (China), Lonking (China), Anhui Heli (China), CVS Ferrari (Italy), and Hoist Liftruck (US). Contracts & agreements and new product developments were the prominent strategies adopted by these players to gain traction in the container handling equipment market. For instance, in January 2018, CVS Ferrari completed the delivery of an F500.RS3 reach stacker to Indorama Ventures (Thailand) at its production plant in Corlu, Turkey. The plant produces pet bottles for the European market and the F500.RS3 reach stacker would handle containers of raw chemicals. Alternatively, companies also adopted the new product developments strategy to maintain their positions in the market. In September 2017, Hyster planned to develop a new 48-ton electric container handling product. The testing phase is expected to start shortly, and the equipment will utilize lithium-ion battery technology for electrification, helping the company achieve its zero-emission targets.
