Market overview

The Indian container market is growing significantly, mainly due to the various policy reforms that are strengthening the container trade against the global slowdown. Improving transshipment numbers in Indian ports, direct port delivery (DPD), direct port entry (DPE), increase in Authorized Economic Operators (AEOs), port community systems (PCS), digitization and automation of cargo movement through port ports, etc. are some of the key areas for improvement, with specifically helping the market move towards an uptrend. In addition, the healthy competition between major and private ports ensures that container volume growth in each port is improving on an annual basis, creating opportunities in the Indian container market.

The Indian container market is expected to grow steadily at a rate of around 2% over the forecast period (2022-2028). Rising demand for fish and meat has increased the commercial farming of fish and livestock in India over the years, escalating India’s overall exports. Significant developments in commercial ships and innovation of cargo ships equipped with the latest technologies such as navigation systems, advanced sensors and other components are expected to boost the demand for shipborne transportation, which in turn will drive the growth of the container market.

COVID-19 impact

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, economic activities in India have declined. It is mainly due to the impact of the coronavirus in major consumption centers such as the US and Europe that forced the carriers/alliances to suspend many services. In addition, many sailings were blanched during this period. Moreover, the impact was prominent as India is on the main Asia-Europe route. According to the India container report 2020, a total of 34 sailings were missed at JNPT in the second quarter of 2020.

Based on the product, the container market is classified into 20 feet, 40 feet, and 45 feet. The 40-foot segment serves a substantial portion of the market. Factors such as increased durability and large space offered by 40-foot containers contribute to their high acceptance in various applications. In addition, India has become the fastest growing economy in the world over the past five years thanks to rising demand for consumer goods and services.

Based on end use, the container market has been segmented into food and beverage, consumer goods, industrial goods, healthcare, and others. The food and beverage segment serves a significant portion of the market. Perishable foods and drinks spoil quickly when exposed to humidity or extreme temperatures. Reefer containers play a vital role in the transportation of perishable foods, as they provide exceptional storage space for refrigeration, are easy to transport and can be placed in many locations. As a result, increasing trade in agricultural products and processed foods is expected to drive demand for containers in the food & beverage segment in the coming years.
