Intermodal Container Leasing - Industry Market Research Report

Intermodal Container Leasing

Over the past five years, the Intermodal Container Leasing industry navigated choppy waters. As global trade slowed in 2016, container supplies continued to increase while steel and crude oil prices fell. As a result, industry revenue declined as operators reduced their rates in line with freight prices and to remain competitive during a period of excessive container supply. Over the next five years, the industry will grow as freight volumes increase once again. As economic conditions in the United States improve and emerging markets continue to grow, global consumption and industrial activity will rise. Therefore, domestic and world trade levels are anticipated to climb, increasing demand for containers and industry services. However, excess container supply, combined with volatile fuel prices and the recent slowdown in emerging market growth are projected to constrain demand for industry services.

This industry leases intermodal containers for the long- and short-term needs of transportation companies and shippers. Intermodal containers can be transported on ships, trains and trucks. Due to the industry’s international nature, revenue is calculated based on the location of customers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
