Key Growth Drivers of the Shipping Software Market

Increase in demand for cargo transportation through ships:  The demand for cargo transportation through ships is rising across the world, as it is a secure way of transporting goods from one location to another as compared to other means of transport. Cargo is efficiently transferred to a ship in a more secure manner as compared to road and air transit. This is a key factor driving the shipping software market. Moreover, cargo transportation is less expensive to ship goods globally, since ships can carry more cargo from one place to another within a short span of time. This is driving the demand for shipping worldwide.

Recent developments in commercial cases and dominant players introducing better and more efficient cargo ships equipped with latest technology (advanced sensors, navigation systems, and other components) are expected to enhance the demand for cargo transportation through ships. This drives the shipping software market and subsequently, the cargo industry.

Rise in popularity of online shopping, multichannel retail, commerce in B2B, and same-day delivery offerings across the globe is a major factor driving the shipping software market. Furthermore, preference for online shopping is increasing due to the growing penetration of Internet & mobile and preference of customers to shop online. The need to handle products or deliver parcels at doorsteps is enhancing the demand for shipping software, as shipping software enable eCommerce companies to cater to the needs of their customers by building a “one touch” shipping system. This is generating tremendous gains in business, labor-related savings, and even employee & customer satisfaction, which is estimated to boost the shipping software market.

Thus, an online retailer needs to have an advanced shipping software to maintain and create good relations with customers. The demand for shipping software services is expected to increase over the next few years, due to significant expansion of the online retail market. Thus, rise in Internet retail activities is driving the shipping software market at present.
