Global ISO Container Market: Introduction
ISO containers are international intermodal containers manufactured according to the specifications outlined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO containers are designed for ship, rail and truck and the design covers everything from size to the quality of steel used for construction and the allowed gross weight. The basis of the ISO container is to assure that the container withstands extreme environments and structural integrity placed on it through its travels over road, rail or water routes. The ISO standardization also ensures that the containers meet the size and durability requirements to allow them to stack safely and uniformly on transport systems. Inspection of ISO containers is done after every thirty months to ensure the quality and specifications of the container. Twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU’s) is the basic unit to measure the volume of ISO container and the building block for expressing shipping capacity. ISO containers can be classified according to types such as dry containers, refrigerated (reefer) container, tank container, open top container, insulated container and flat rack container and are used to transport wide range of products including consumer goods, industrial transport and others.
Global ISO Container Market: Dynamics
Increasing demand for highly efficient and superior capacity containers is expected to drive the global ISO container market. Steady growth of seaborne trade, growing containerization, increasing application of remote container management solutions, increasing preference for high cube containers is further anticipated to fuel the growth of ISO container in global market. Substantial demand for reefer containers, favorable government regulations pertaining to emissions and increasing need of standardization of containers is pushing the use of eco-friendly refrigerants in shipping containers are expected to present growth opportunities in the upcoming years. Increasing trade agreement such as NAFTA, ASEAN, etc. are projected to propel the growth of ISO containers in upcoming years. Overcapacity of containers and low freight rates are anticipated to resist the growth of ISO container market. Moreover, fluctuations in raw material prices are expected to hinder the growth of the global market for ISO containers in the foreseeable future. Trade conflicts between major countries has declined the growth of ISO container across the globe.
