Governments across the globe are actively supporting the global inland waterways vessels industry by introducing several port maintenance facilities, traffic management systems, and upgradation plans. For instance, Hamburg Port Authority is developing an Intelligent Transport System (ITS) that enables easier optimization of data interchange among the inland waterways vessels. This will enable easier loading and unloading of passenger and goods and reduce downtime significantly.

The rising costs associated with the maintenance and acquisition of the vessels along with stringent regulatory norms for operating these vessels, increased ship building and delivery times, and diversified climatic conditions may hamper the industry growth till 2024. However, higher returns on investments from these vessels will support the global inland waterways vessels market expansion over the forecast timeframe.

Asia Pacific accounted for the maximum revenue share of over 78% in 2017 owing to increasing freight traffic and improving waster channels across the region. The supporting government initiatives along with the presence of major industry players including Samsung Heavy Industries, Wisdom Marine, Sembcorp Marine, Hyundai Heavy Industries, and Ilshin Shipping are supporting the global inland waterways vessels market proliferation over the study timeframe.

The major industry participants in the global inland waterways vessels market place include: Sanmar, Bayliner, Sneed Shipbuilding, CMA CGM Group, and European Cruise Other notable participants include CIWTC, Windcat Work Boats, Norfolk Tug Company, Seacontractors, and DFDS. Industry participants are focused on expanding their portfolio with diversified specifications for gaining orders and increasing their market share over the forecast timeframe.
