Dry cargo will account for the maximum barge transportation market revenue share of over USD 75 billion till 2024. The dominance can be attributed to the increasing demand for low value bulk industries for the transportation of recyclable and municipal wastes.

Adoption of propulsion nozzles and restructuring of thruster tunnels reduces the barge transportation costs by 10% to 15%, thereby increasing the overall operating efficiency of the barges. The utilization of LNG for powering the barges improves the efficiency and significantly reduces the carbon emissions adhering to the stringent government regulations. The integration of GPS equipment provides real time monitoring and scheduling of barges enables the service providers to efficiently manage their shipments, positively influencing the barge transportation market share.
The high costs associated with the acquiring and maintaining of the barges along with the stringent government regulations for improving the efficiency and reducing the carbon emissions from the ships may hamper the barge transportation industry growth over the study timeframe. Further replacement of barges with pipelines for liquid cargo by major OMCs may further restrict the barge transportation market revenue generation over the next six years.
