Market Overview:

Translate Report


The U.S. dredging services market was valued at USD 2,160 million by 2017, growing with 1.31% CAGR during the forecast period, 2018-2025

Dredging is the removal of debris and sediments from the bottom of rivers, harbors, and other water containing locations. Dredging is vital to economic and social development, in particular to the construction and maritime infrastructure upon which worldwide economic prosperity and environmental well-being depends. Growing demand from harbour and port operations coupled with favourable government funding for transportation support the industry growth. Harbor and port accounted for the largest downstream marketplace as dredging services are essential to maintaining efficient and safe navigation channels. There is currently increasing demand for dredging services in most of the country’s ports. As per the U.S. federal agency, “US Army Corps of Engineers”, approximately one-third of commercial vessels at the U.S. ports are constrained due to inadequate channel depths.

In addition, growing acceptance of dredging as a means of environmental preservation and restoration will further stimulate the market demand. However, funds allocated to dredging services in the country have been insufficient to meet demand which will slow down the industry growth to some extent. In addition, high start-up costs of dredging equipment and vessels are a significant barrier to entry for new players.
