Global Industry Analysts Inc. (GIA) announce the release of a comprehensive global report on the maritime containerization market. The report indicates that the global market for maritime containerization is projected to reach 731 million TEUs by the year 2017.

Growth will be primarily driven by increasing sea trade, developments in shipping networks and transshipment hubs, encouraging investments in port terminal facilities, growing capacity and increased frequency of global maritime freight transport.

The market also stands to benefit from soaring demand for oil and liquefied natural gas (LNG) across Asia and the resulting growth in the transport of liquid and gaseous commodities.
