Growing adoption of alternative fuel powered port equipment is attributed towards their lower operating costs and reduced environmental impact. Port authorities are focusing to replace their existing cranes with hybrid equipment providing significant fuel savings and lower greenhouse gas emissions. For instance, in November 2016, the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) completed the third phase of replacing diesel powered gantry cranes with hybrid cranes at the Port of Savannah.

Adoption of automated technologies for fast and efficient cargo transfer is significantly contributing towards reduction of overall cycle times, further supporting the industry expansion. Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Automated Stacking Cranes (ASCs) offering enhanced capabilities for automated cargo movement at dock yards are gaining higher visibility. For instance, in February 2019, APM Terminals planned to use automated straddle carries US West Coast marine terminals to handle increasing cargo volume.

Availability of customized ship to shore solutions offering enhanced efficiency and management of traffic during container handling is providing positive outlook for the port equipment market share. Supporting initiatives and policies proposed by government bodies are accelerating the development of port infrastructure. For instance, in March 2015, Government of India approved the Sagarmala Project for enhancing the capacities at major ports and developing integrated ports.
