Increasing Public Private Partnerships (PPP) in Ports

Majority of global trades are carried out via sea routes, hence well-functioning maritime transport is a key element in overall development of countries who participate in global trade. The port operation requires heavy man power and equipment investments. As a result, several countries are adopting Public Private Partnership (PPP), in which the operations and management responsibilities are delegated to private companies, while some land and assets remain with the government tends to increases the adoption of barge transportation. Public-private partnership is majorly adopted in developing countries and some developed nations due to high initial investment associated with the development of terminals. India has over 29 major ports under development with an investment of around US $13 Bn done as PPP module of Government of India. With rise in the number sea ports anticipate the trade across countries will fuels the global barge transportation market in upcoming years.

With increasing seaborne trade, demand for the development of new port and continuous maintenance of the existing one is expanding. As the port management becoming complex and robust, federal governments are looking for port privatization. For instance, the national governments of the USA and Canada are facing the problem with the trade surge. As a result, policies are being formed regarding port developments under private organizations leads to the building of new ports which will increase the trade and cater to the growth of barge transportation market

Increasing Ocean Trade Activities

During the past few years, ocean freight has witnessed a positive growth in SEA and Western Europe countries. Counties in this region have large logistical operations. These logistical operations need large vessel for inland, offshore and ocean transportation. This creates potential demand for barge transportation across the globe. Moreover, mandatory government regulations are also contributing to the growth of the marine electronics market. Many companies are establishing their foundries in Western Europe, China and Japan. With the growth of ocean logistical operations, the marine electronics market is witnessing a potential demand, and is expected to grow with the growth of logistics demand during the forecast period.
