The cargo inspection market is expected to grow from an estimated USD 2.38 billion in 2018 to USD 2.85 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 3.66% between 2018 and 2023. Factors driving the growth of this market include the increasing demand for quality-assured commodity and increasing trade of various commodities. Trade houses across regions strive to enhance the quality and standards of goods that are imported and exported to overseas markets, especially in developed countries where stringent regulations are imposed on imported goods.

Cargo inspection is one of the inspection services offered by the companies to test the quality and quantity of traded commodities and condition of cargos through which these commodities get traded. Inspection of cargos includes cleanliness inspections of cargos, loading & discharge supervision, tank calibration, and damage survey. These inspection services may differ industry-wise. These inspections are carried out under the specialized cargo surveyors and consultants. Many times, these inspection services are carried out according to international standards such as SDA, Codex, ICMSF, and ISO 2859.

Cargo inspection services in the agriculture industry are carried out by highly specialized cargo surveyors and inspectors, which are certified by Grain and Feed Trade Association (GAFTA) and Federation of Oils, Seeds and Fats Associations (FOSFA). Inspection services include the grain test for moisture, density, percentage of damaged grains, and infestation. Fresh fruits and vegetables gets inspected on their size, pressure test, acidity, and packaging. It also includes microbiological analysis. Stringent regulations and standards to ensure the quality and safety of the products and increasing awareness among consumers regarding the quality of agricultural products and food are expected to drive the agriculture industry during the forecast period.

The cargo inspection market is likely to witness a significant growth across various countries, particularly in emerging economies of Asia. This growth is mainly being spurred by the strict regulatory and economic factors. China is one of the largest exporters of the agro-commodity among other Asian countries. Singapore is the trading hub, and most traders are handling their trade business from Singapore. Thus, key cargo inspection companies such as SGS Group (Switzerland), Bureau Veritas SA (France), Intertek Group plc (UK), ALS Limited (Australia), and Cotecna Inspection SA (Switzerland) have their offices in Singapore. India is one of the growing markets for agro-commodities. Furthermore, factors such as the growing importance of safety and security among consumers/end users and increasing agro-commodity trade are some of the major growth drivers for this market.

Cargo Inspection Market

Different standards and regulations across geographies lead to conflicts regarding the acceptance of local and international standards by importers and exporters of respective industries, thereby hindering the growth of the market. Furthermore, there is a risk related to the standardization and quality of testing and inspection services provided by various surveyor companies. This restraint currently has a high impact, which is expected to decrease in the long term as common laws of standardization come into effect.

Key players in this market are SGS Group (Switzerland), Bureau Veritas SA (France), Intertek Group plc (UK), ALS Limited (Australia), and Cotecna Inspection SA (Switzerland).

Drivers

Harmonization of standards

To ensure accuracy and effectiveness in conformity assessment, harmonization of standards is critical. Usually, international harmonization of standards implies the adoption of an international standard that is recognized by reputed standards organizations. Complying with multiple standards can be expensive and can even decelerate shipment. Moreover, certain standards are common for specific industries and devices and may often overlap. The objective of harmonization is to find out similar attributes, identify critical rules and regulations that have to be followed, and formulate a common standard for cargo transportation.

Increasing demand for quality assurance commodity

The importance of quality-assured products is increasing day by day. Small and medium-sized industries are focusing on high-quality products. Nowadays, customers and buyers are aware of the importance of safe and high-quality products. Moreover, international standards for quality of goods are becoming stricter. Considering the trade of Agro Commodities, exporter needs to focus on quality control and quality assurance. Thus, exporters need to inspect materials, check loading and discharging of commodities in cargos, and analyze the condition of the cargos to get quality assured certificate. Many countries have laws regarding trade and its process.

Opportunities

Free Trade Agreements (FTAs)

Free trade is proving to be one of the best ways to provide an opportunities for foreign investments in countries. It reduces or eliminates barriers such as taxes and regulatory laws related to trade. FTAs help in increasing the economic growth by reducing governments’ spending in local industry and attracting foreign direct investments (FDIs). FDIs help develop expertise in local markets by working with domestic companies to develop local resources. Moreover, these domestic companies receive access to the latest technologies from their multinational partners. Thus, reduction in trade barriers and more stable and transparent investment environment will boost free trade among countries. World Trade Organization (WTO) is also promoting to FTA. Thus, a growing number of FTAs will increase trade among countries, which will accelerate the growth of the cargo inspection market.
