The global harbor deepening market is predicted to significantly gain from the growing number of high-value government contracts due to increase in trade activities, economic growth, rising need for supplies, and the undertaking of strategic military projects. Harbor deepening is an important activity that helps to meet the needs of large ships carrying heavy cargo as they transit various types of shipping routes and waterways. It is one of the key aspects of port improvement. In June 2019, the Port of Brownsville received approval for port deepening from the US Army Corps of Engineers. The project will help the port to stay competitive while being able to accommodate heavier and larger cargo ships.

● Increasing amount of food and supplies, military, and other goods and cargo transported through ships could bode well for the global harbor deepening market
● Rise in the number of harbor redevelopment projects is expected to create profit-making opportunities for players
● Growth in oil trade and export activities could help increase the demand in the global harbor deepening market
