Global Container Handling Equipment Market: Overview

A container handling crane, also known as a container crane or a ship-to-shore crane, is a type of large dockside gantry crane found at container terminals for loading and unloading intermodal containers from container ships. Container handling equipment is used for the storage, movement, control, and protection of materials such as products and goods throughout the process of distribution, disposal, and consumption. Container handling equipment is involved in the completing system and is generally classified into four main categories: engineered systems, industrial trucks, storage and handling equipment, and bulk material handling. Increase in containerized trade across the world, stringent emission regulations for container handling equipment, and strong demand in Asia Pacific and Middle East are anticipated to fuel demand for container handling equipment.

Global Container Handling Equipment Market: Key Segments

The container handling equipment market can be segmented based on type, tonnage capacity, propulsion, and region.
