APAC Barge Transportation Market to acquire substantial returns by 2024, rising demand for petroleum products in the region to drive the industry expansion

Author : Ronak Bora | Published Date : 2019-03-18 

Barge transportation market has indeed gained a velocity in the past few years, and is in the midst of experiencing a profound commercialization portfolio, primarily driven by the escalating crude petrochemical shipments across the world. In this regard, it is important to note that U.S. and Japan are the two major economies where crude oil demand is significantly high, which quite aptly translates the profitability quotient of the barge transportation market in these regions. In fact, Asia Pacific is forecast to procure a significant portion of the overall industry, with a massive revenue collection by the end of 2024. However, North America is also slated to emerge as a crucial regional barge transportation market, on account of the rising shale oil production.

Global barge transportation industry, estimated by Global Market Insights, Inc., is claimed to surpass USD 170 billion by the end of 2024. Growing investments in fleet modernization and increment in the barge number has substantially driven the market dynamics over the years.  For instance, Kirby Corporation, one of the renowned barge transportation market giants, had spent almost USD 135 million in 2014 for the construction of 66 new island barges. Mergers and acquisitions is another strategy that the industry participants are readily adopting to consolidate their business position in the competitive space.

The yesteryear acquisition of SEACOR Holdings’ inland fleet by Kirby Corporation from subsidiaries of SEACOR at approximately USD 88 million bears a testimony to the aforementioned fact. Reportedly, the asset purchase will include 13 inland towboats, 27 inland 30,000-barrel tank barges, and one towboat which is presently under construction. Under the agreement, Kirby would transfer SEACOR Holdings the ownership of Florida based ship docking tugboat. On the other hand, SEACOR, through SCF Waxler Marine LLC, would transport petrochemicals, black oil, and refined petroleum products on Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and Mississippi River System. Analysts claim this move by Kirby Corporations to be highly strategic, projecting the company to score a competitive advantage in the global barge transportation industry.

Some of the other biggies involved in barge transportation market include American Commercial Barge Line, Campbell Transportation, Blessey Marine Services, Canal Barge, PTC Logistics, and Heartland Barge.  The overall industry is restrained by some of the crucial factors such as huge initial cost associated with fleet construction, limitations of international water ways, and climatic conditions. However, leading companies are continuously focusing on overcoming these challenges as much as possible by incorporating technology in the business module. For instance, GPS integration has helped the operators get a clear picture of the climatic conditions and the delivery time.
