Dredging Market is Expected to Reach 2.7% During 2017 to 2022 according to new research report
The global dredging market will touch a value of nearly US$ 16,500 Mn in the year 2022 and grow at a sluggish CAGR during the assessment period.
Dredging is an important industry with its uses in many spheres. As the population of the world keeps on increasing, particularly in the coastal areas, more amount of coastal land needs to be reclaimed and protected from erosion and floods, giving rise to the need of dredging in the coastal areas. Also, due to the increasing sea levels because of global warming, more and more coastal areas are experiencing floods and to prevent such natural disasters or to mitigate their effects, dredging is required. Moreover, as the volume of global trade increases, more and more goods are shipped through the sea using large vessels or ships. Due to this, port infrastructure needs to be expanded and for this purpose dredging is required to keep the ports working. Also, due to a rising demand of oil and gas, exploration for such energy resources is done in remote areas, requiring construction of ports where dredging is required. Lastly, since global tourism industry is also increasing, beaches are needed to be kept in good condition and for this reason dredging is done in such areas as well.
