- Adoption of innovative equipment monitoring technologies such as smart virtual software growing
- East Asia to emerge as the largest market, expanding at over 4% CAGR
- Trade maintenance to be key application area, accounting for 3 out of 10 projects through 2030
“Rising concerns over possible environmental damage is prompting dredging corporations to collaborate with governmental and private players to develop eco-friendly approaches to expand their projects,” concludes an FMI analyst.
COVID-19 Impact Insights
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented recession which is expected to influence the dredging market size to a large extent. Massive production crunches across the oil & gas and tourism sectors are adversely impacting the dredging market.
As the pandemic spread, the grounding of airplanes and automobiles led to a massive downswing in the transportation sector. This resulted in an abrupt demand shock across the oil and gas industry, compelling oil producing giants to cease production, leading to a glut in product inventories.
Fortunately, recent months have witnessed a shoring up of oil prices. Still, OPEC+ countries have curbed supply, with cuts amounting to 7.7 million barrels per day prevailing until December 2020. Such downswings are impacting dredging projects throughout the entire world.
The present-day slump in oil prices is akin to the 2008 financial crisis. Possible recovery is anticipated in 2021 or 2022, restoring prices to pre-crisis levels of US$ 50-60 per oil barrels. This projected favourable outlook is likely to restore prospects for the global dredging market, as companies are expected to resume exploration projects.
