NEW YORK, June 7, 2021 / PRNewswire / – According to a study by Fact MR, the global gantry crane market is expected to be valued by $ 3 billion by the end of 2031. According to the study, gantry cranes are often used to move and lift shipping containers in shipyards. The rise in maritime trading activity has increased the demand for gantry cranes.

Increasing urbanization and the expansion of the manufacturing and construction industries will drive demand for gantry cranes. However, as construction activities come to an abrupt halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic, market growth could decline.

The implementation of social distancing protocols has resulted in the closure of various construction companies, which has resulted in limited demand in the gantry crane market. However, as the lockdown is eased, business operations are gradually recovering, which in turn paves the way for the market to recover to its pre-pandemic growth rate.

Globalization has led to the construction of advanced ports and the modernization of other maritime infrastructures. This leads to an increasing demand for gantry cranes in marine applications.

Technological advances and automation in gantry crane models have resulted in lighter and more energy efficient cranes. It is expected that these factors will positively influence the global gantry crane market during the forecast period.

“Increased efforts to minimize construction and ship material handling time and a focus on introducing lifting solutions as per customer requirements will fuel the gantry crane market,” said a senior analyst at Fact.MR.
