Tug Boat Market: Introduction

A tug boat is a type of boat that maneuvers large container ships, tankers and cruiser ships by pushing or towing them in and around dockyards and harbors. These boats are also used to maneuver disabled ships and other non-self-propelled vessels, such as oil platforms. Tug boats are also used to steer large ships to create sideway movements in narrow seas and harbors.

Due to their strong engine capacity, tug boats are also used as icebreakers and salvage boats – they are capable of breaking through one meter thick ice. There are various types of tug boats manufactured to cater to various requirements, such as type of assisting speed, type of ships assisted and environmental condition.

In order to be more productive as well as competitive in the market, all ports must be equipped with better equipment.  Being an irreplaceable part of the port infrastructure, the demand for tug boats is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
