There has been a significant adoption of waterway transportation software market and services among shipping companies to enhance business efficiency along with freight security. Further, with the growing trend of utilizing the huge digital data building and increased penetration of cloud services in the shipping/marine industry, the adoption of advanced communication, tracking, and ship management technology has increased. In addition, the advancing change in shipping business with the rising adoption of various technological developments such as Machine to Machine communication (M2M) and introduction of containerization in the transportation industry has further broadened the software and services market for the waterway transportation industry.

The waterway transportation industry is driven by the increasing demand of heavy freight transportation globally. The demand shift of freight from west to east is a huge opportunity for the waterway transportation software market and services. The increasing partnerships and south-south cooperation in the waterborne trade has resulted into the emergence of new markets in the developing economies of Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Middle East and Africa (MEA). The developing countries such as China and India are also adding to the demand shift and thus propelling this market towards growth. Moreover, the development of new sea routes and sea ports are providing new growth opportunities in this market.

However, the prolonged effect of the economy crisis in 2008/2009 is restraining the rapid growth in the waterborne trade; but with the adoption of new solutions such as yard management, maritime software, and next generation shipping surveillance systems, the shipping companies will be able to overcome the crisis effect. The shipping companies are currently looking forward to extract Return on Investment (ROI) from their existing assets, and thus are expected to invest more on IT rather than new assets.

The report spans the overall structure of the waterway transportation software market and provides premium insights that can help software vendors, shipping agents, ship brokers, third-party providers, and managed service providers to identify the need of large and small shipping companies along with exhibiting the gaps for shipping services provider, and Third Party Logistics (3PL) providers.

Transportation plays a vital role in the development of any economy. Each of the transportation modes, be it air, land, or water, has been influenced by the changing demand and molded to be more cost-effective, efficient, and reliable. Waterway transportation is an extremely important part of the global transportation market; approximately, 80% of the heavy freight volume is transported through waterway transportation. The strategic economic importance of seaborne trade is very critical to the transportation industry. Traditionally, waterborne transportation consisted of deep-water harbors and rivers, along with piers and docks adjoining the water bodies. However, now the system has expanded to include canals and river ports with integrated railroads and trucking operations. With the expansion in this industry, the software and services market for waterway transportation has also increased.

The waterway transportation software market is very huge both in terms of market value and freight transported in volumes. Since the past two decades, the waterway transportation market was going through economic crisis and the waterborne trade market was growing very slowly; however, now the market is recovering and new opportunities are emerging globally. The emergence of new markets in the developing economies of Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Middle East and Africa (MEA) region are one of the main factors driving this market.

New technological developments, such as Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication and introduction of containerization, have revolutionized the complete transportation industry with drastic changes in the waterway transport also. The waterway transportation software market report highlights the key trends, and market sizing and forecasting of the emerging technologies for the waterway transportation industry. The report also emphasizes on key global adoption trends, future growth potential of submarkets, key drivers, competitive outlook, restraints, and opportunities for the waterway transportation services market.

In this report, the waterway transportation software market is segmented into solutions, services, deployment type, end users, and regions. The solutions are further divided into warehousing, vessel tracking, freight security, yard management, ship broker solutions, marine software, and others. These solutions can be deployed into three ways, such as hosted deployment, on-premises deployment, and hybrid deployment. The service market includes consulting services, managed services, and training services. This market is divided on the basis of regions which include North America (NA), Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America (LA).

MarketsandMarkets expects the global waterway transportation software market and services to grow from $57.1 billion in 2014 to $88.7 billion by 2019, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.21% during the forecast period 2014 - 2019.
