Dredging Market: Overview
Dredging is an excavation activity usually carried out underwater, in harbors, shallow seas, and freshwater areas with the purpose of gathering up bottom sediments to deepen or widen the sea bottom or sea channel. The dredging technique is often used to keep waterways and ports navigable and create an anti-sludge pathway for boats. It is also used as a way to replenish sand on some public beaches, where sand has been lost due to coastal erosion.
Dredging Market: Key Segments
The dredging market can be segmented based on type, end-user industry, and region. Different types of dredging vessels are suction, jet lift, air lift, bucket, and others. The suction type of dredging vessel operates by sucking through a long tube, akin to some vacuum cleaners on a larger scale. The suction vessel is further bifurcated into trailing suction and cutter suction. Jet lift dredging vessel uses the Venturi effect of a concentrated high-speed stream of water to pull the nearby water, together with bed material, into a pipe. Airlift is a type of small suction dredging vessel. Bucket dredger is equipped with a bucket dredge, a device that picks up sediment by mechanical means, often with many circulating buckets attached to a wheel or chain. Other types of dredging vessels include pneumatic, water injectors, and snagboat. Based on end-user industry, the dredging market can be segregated into oil & gas, trading, tourism, and others.
Increase in global trade carried out through the sea and rise in transportation of goods through the sea using large container vessels and ships are factors offering lucrative opportunities to the dredging market. Port infrastructure needs to be expanded; dredging is required to keep ports in working condition. Global demand for energy and gas has been rising. Exploration of oil and gas is carried out primarily in remote areas. For this process, dredging companies are required to construct ports. Dredging is also being carried out on beaches to keep them in prime condition. Dredging is a capital intensive process. This is one of the major restraints of the dredging market. New technological advancements are emerging in order to lower manufacturing costs and increase the productivity of dredging.
