Population growth, urbanisation, and increasing global wealth offer growth potential

Finnish cargo-handling giant, Cargotec, has released its 2015 annual review, highlighting ‘megatrends’ which offer new opportunities.

Long-term macro-economic trends such as population growth, urbanisation, and increasing global wealth are bringing huge changes to societies and cultures and impacting industries and the way they conduct business.

Opening up new avenues are a rise in GDP leading to more demand for materials and energy and a doubling of consumers leading to more trade and a consequent rise in the demand for cargo handling solutions.

The growth in energy demand means an increased need to explore, produce and transport energy from various supply sources, boosting offshore market growth.

Underpinning these changes is digitalisation which enables increased efficiency and sustainability, allowing customers to optimise their operations with intelligent cargo handling solutions.
