Investors See Shipping Containers as Valuable Commodities
In the last 60 years, since the introduction of the shipping container, global trade and economic growth have both increased as a result of the shipping container's contribution. It can be argued that the global economy, as it stands in size and functionality, is mostly due to the invention of the shipping container. With that being said, more and more investors are realizing that the global demand for shipping containers will continue to rise year after year (as it has in the past), almost mirroring the global economy's growth.
Regardless of the troubles in the Western markets, the global economy has still continued to grow and prosper, due mainly to the growth in emerging markets; all over the world. Fueled by this continued growth, the worldwide demand for shipping containers is forecast to double, as we move closer toward 2020. Thus, the key to the shipping container’s continued success will be to continuously (and correctly) anticipate where the need for a steady supply will be, and use this information to accommodate the ever-increasing demands of both the shipping industry and the global economy.
