Docking Systems Market: Overview
Docking systems are enclosed areas used for berthing ships to keep them afloat at a uniform level and facilitate the loading and unloading of cargo and passengers. Particular structured docking systems are used for the construction, repair and maintenance of merchant boats and ships. Docking systems can be classified as dry docks and wet docks. Docks required for the berthing of ships or vessels to facilitate the loading and unloading of cargo are wet docks, also known as harbor docks, whereas dry docks are used for the repair of ships. The shape of the dock or basin should be straight so that the ship can stand along it, as a curved shape is not convenient for ships to stand alongside. The shape of the dock should be such that maximum berthing length is available for the ship within a given area.
Various kinds of docking systems are available in the market, ranging from light weight to heavy duty, depending on whether the dock is meant for residential or commercial purpose. Docking systems can also be classified as removable and permanent docking systems. Removable docking systems are especially popular among regions that have harsher climates or when the dock needs to be repaired. The two popular removable docking systems are floating docks and pipe docks.
On the other hand, permanent docking systems are built to last for years on end. These fixed docking systems are durable, stable and can withstand constant use. Permanent docking systems are used for commercial use including marine-based businesses that have heavy levels of foot traffic and workloads.
Docking Systems Market: Dynamics
Innovations in dock technology have pave way for the availability of a wide variety of docking systems today. Marine and shoreline engineering allow the customization of docking systems to accommodate both residential and commercial uses. Docking systems are a mainstay for marinas and shorelines across the world. They are convenient and functional ways to access waterways. The market for commercial docking systems is anticipated to rise gradually due to the rise in shipping trade, public projects and small scale businesses including restaurants and other marine-based services. Typical commercial grade docking systems include L-shaped docks with long aisles and slips on one side of the dock. T-shaped docking systems are also used for commercial purposes. Heavy-duty docking systems are made of concrete to sustain wear and tear and greater weight and pressure. Concrete is an excellent material known for its durability, strength, longevity and proven performance. The rise in the global fishery industry is facilitating the growth of commercial docking systems. Trade liberalization and global economic growth are also boosting the cargo shipping market and thereby facilitating the growth of the docking systems market. The demand and supply for sea transportation have increased over the past few years. Developing economies in Asia-Pacific account for a significant share in the market, especially China, since the region is a major exporter. Despite their advantages and favorable outlook, docking systems can deteriorate if not maintained properly. Years of neglect can result in the rotting of wood and rusting of nails and structures, which make the structure unstable.
