Marine & Dock Gangways Market

Marine & Dock Gangways Market : Global Industry Analysis 2012 - 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 - 2027

Market Insights on Marine and Dock Gangways covering sales outlook, demand forecast and up-to-date key trends

Marine & Dock Gangways Market: Introduction

Ships, barges, cruise, boats, etc. all have different dimensions and dock profiles which are often elevated several feet above. Accessing these often requires specially designed platform known as gangways. A gangway is a variable-sloped pedestrian walkway which links a fixed structure or land with a floating structure.

Also, gangways mounted on ships/barges facilitate easy manual stevedoring and offshore transfer of essentials among ships. Gangways on a ship connect the quarterdeck to the forecastle and serve the purpose of connecting various other areas within the ship and to that of other ship.

Marine gangways are designed according to the various marine construction standards as gangways can be extensively useful in case of an emergency. Apart from stevedoring, the marine gangways are highly useful in case of offshore man and material transfer. Also, marine gangways are extensively useful in offshore construction and maintenance activities.

The trade through marine ports contributes around 80 percent of the international trade volume and over 70 percent of total trade value. While in countries like China, these shares contribute a significantly higher share. Marine routes are major conveyance for goods in the form of containers, dry bulk, liquid bulk, and roll on-roll off (Ro-Ro) type of cargos, also passenger involving numerous national, international and cruise passenger.

The marine gangways can be in the form of plain slop, stairs or stepped platforms and the design vary according to designing standards, application and customer requirements. Marine gangways are conventionally made up wood, aluminium and metal alloys, while the modern gangways are made through high strength polymers and fibers enabling a construction of a light weight structure.

Marine & Dock Gangways Market: Dynamics

The global marine gangways market is highly dependent on the demands from shipbuilding industry and new port construction and expansion projects. During the last few years, the shipbuilding industry has passed through deterioration phase, which is likely to get its pace over the next few years.

Countries like, South Korea, China, Hong Kong (PRC), etc. are striving to bring on track the regional shipbuilding industry. Also, a huge surge in demands is expected from the defence sector as naval ships play a crucial role in maintaining sovereignty of any country. Countries like India, China, U.S, Japan, and NATO members have increased their defence budget for modernizing and strengthening forces which is estimated to fuel the demands of naval ships over the next coming years.

Offshore activities plays an important role on in orientation of shipbuilding industry and port development projects. Around 20% of oil reserves and 45% of gas reserves are located offshore. The spending for offshore exploration has been significantly increased and is estimated to increase further in coming years.

Increasing bulk trade, development of new trade regions, offshore wind energy project, etc are some of the other factors which are estimated to lever up the demands for ships, barges, vessels and other maritime transports and hence the global marine & dock gangways market.
