Smart Ports Market, 2024 by Technology (IoT, Blockchain, Process Automation, AI) Elements (Terminal Automation, PCS, Smart Port Infrastructure, and Others), Throughput Capacity, Port Type - ResearchAndMarkets.com

August 2, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 2, 2019--

The “Smart Ports Market by Technology (IoT, Blockchain, Process Automation, Artificial Intelligence (AI)), Elements (Terminal Automation, PCS, Smart Port Infrastructure, and Others), Throughput Capacity, Port Type, and Region - Global Forecast to 2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global smart ports market is projected to reach USD 5.3 billion by 2024 from an estimated USD 1.7 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 25.0% from 2019 to 2024.

Smart ports implement digitalization and application of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the daily port activities to enhance the level of operations and the overall efficiency of the ports. Seaports are competing with the large Transport & Logistics (T&L) players when it comes to developing insight-driven solutions and IoT applications.

However, as it is a huge platform, the scope of development is massive. The key factors driving the smart ports market is the utilization of digitalization and the IoT to cut down on the existing redundant costs and increase the overall efficiency of port operation. Also, the ports are expected to comply with the current environmental norms and ensure proper waste disposal and treatment.

The report segments the market, by region, into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia Pacific was the largest smart ports market in 2018 because of the increased global trade, resulting in an increase in the throughput capacity of these ports.

Europe is expected to be the fastest-growing smart ports market, followed by Asia Pacific. The smart ports market in countries such as China, Germany, and the Netherlands is expected to grow at the fastest rate, globally, during the forecast period.
