“One of the new trends in the barge transportation market in the US is the construction of new tank barges with more storage capacity. The increase in demand for crude oil in the US boosts the demand for the usage of tank barges through inland waterway transportation. Many vendors in the market have started to provide shipping services for transportation of liquid-bulk cargo. For instance, in FY2014, the US-based barge transportation company, Kirby, reported an expenditure of $135 million for the construction of 66 inland tank barges and one inland towboat. In addition, barge operators in the US took delivery of 336 tank barges with an aggregate capacity of 8.21 million barrels in FY2012. Thus, increased adoption of tank barges among vendors will fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period.”

Texas and Louisiana account for approximately 80% of the US production of petrochemicals. Most of the US farm belt have access to the inland waterway system for the transportation of farm products, including agricultural chemicals through the marine system, including barges.

Further, the report states that manufacturing of barges is a time-consuming and capital-intensive process because of the high cost of raw materials. Barge line operators and owners require huge investments and infrastructure to build and maintain a barge fleet. The Jones Act further impacts the cost of barges and keeps the prices artificially high in the US when compared to the barges worldwide. The purchase price for the US-built barges is about four times the price of foreign-built barges. The maintenance cost for barge fleets is also high for regular activities that include upgrading, cleaning, and wages of the crew maintaining the barges. In addition, the docking charges need to be paid even when they are not in operation. All these factors adversely affect the barge transportation market in the US.
