Global Tank Container Shipping Market: Overview

The global containerized shipping market has been growing steadily over the past three decades. For example, the global tank container fleet has grown to about 719,840 compared to 67,000 in 1991. The number of companies leasing tank containers increased from 27 in 2013 to 35 in 2019. Similarly, the number of operators worldwide increased from 116 in 2013 to 212 in 2019. This suggests a steady and healthy growth of the market over the years.

The global tank container shipping is mainly driven by the rising global demand for oil and gas. Besides, many countries across the world are signing free trade agreements to increase cross-border trade activities. For instance, the world’s largest free-trade agreement, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), was signed on 15 November 2020. The countries that signed the agreement include China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, and 10 other countries. All these countries represent almost 30% of the global GDP and 30% of the global population. The RCEP is expected to pave the way for expanded free-trade deals among these countries, thus benefitting the growth of the global tank containerized shipping market during the forecast period.
