Global Ship-To-Shore Cranes Market: Snapshot

The maritime sector is witnessing immense growth since the past few decades, especially as the availability of high tech equipment has improved. One such type of service that is highly useful for offshore as well as onshore processes associated with shipping, oil and natural gas extraction, and construction structures in or near sea water areas is the ship-to-shore cranes. Owing to a high demand of such cranes in numerous industries, a distinct ship-to-shore cranes market exists from a global perspective.

The machines are also called container cranes, especially when they house a container-shaped space in their structure. The ones having such containers are mainly used for loading and unloading intermodal containers from container ships.

In the ship-to-shore cranes market, a supporting framework is mainly used that can traverse the length of the track wherein cranes need to be employed. Instead of a hook, they are equipped with a specialized handling tool called a spreader. The spreader can be lowered on top of a container and locks onto the four locking points of a container or any other weight. This type of lifting is called corner castings, wherein the setup is carried out using a twist-lock mechanism.

The global ship-to-shore cranes market mainly depicts the presence of a highly consolidated vendor landscape owing to the presence of a handful of players. Even though such a narrow competitive scenario exists, many local players are making it tough for international companies, especially in terms of ship-to-shore crane services and associated operability costs. Nonetheless, with a rapid increase in the number of players occurring in the market, the competition is predicted to notably intensify in the near future. Prominent businesses are vying for facilitating capacity management of ship-to-shore cranes, increasing throughput of containers, and bringing forth upgrades to their services.
