Shipping Containers Procurement Intelligence 2030 : Shipping Containers Category To Is Expected To Expand At A CAGR Of 7.1%

Shipping Containers Category Overview

The shipping containers category is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2023 to 2030. The expansion can be attributed to the rise in international trade, facilitated by the digitization of the shipping sector and the rising utilization of specialized containers. Additionally, the container industry has experienced further growth in response to increasing consumer demand. The shipping industry contributes to around 90% of the goods transported. According to the International Chamber of Shipping 2022 report, around 11 billion tons of goods are transported through shipping containers every year.

Apart from transportation, shipping containers have also been gaining momentum in the construction industry, from building homes to creating pop-up stores. Shipping containers are used for modular construction as they reduce costs and construction time and are efficient and easy to construct. They are used in the construction of homes, schools, hotels, and emergency shelters. For instance, in 2022, Spanish studio Fenwick Iribarren Architects constructed a thousand dormitory rooms using shipping containers for fans attending the FIFA World Cup 2022. Additionally, countries such as Australia and the UK are carrying out constructing activities using containers due to the need for affordable housing, specifically in urban areas. Rising demand for the category from the construction industry is expected to drive the growth of the category.

Container manufacturers are equipping containers with smart technologies such as sensors to monitor temperature, humidity, and other environmental factors for transporting sensitive goods such as food items. Containers are being connected through Internet of Things (IoT) technology as it can help to track and gather real-time data of the container and take necessary steps in case of emergency. Furthermore, with the growing significance of sustainability, container producers are exploring new materials and processes to reduce environmental impact. This involves the incorporation of recycled steel, environmentally friendly coatings, and the development of containers featuring energy-efficient elements such as insulation.

The category is fragmented in nature due to companies having huge numbers and types of container fleets. The primary raw material for containers is steel, and suppliers of steel may have some bargaining power. However, container manufacturers often have long-term relationships with steel suppliers, and the global availability of steel may reduce the supplier power.
