Region :Global | Report ID: FBI100822 | Status : Ongoing



Crude oil carriers are the means of transportation of crude oil. They are commonly known as oil tankers that deliver crude oil in bulk from one place to the other. Crude oil carriers facilitate international boundaries by providing a convenient way for liquid transportation in bulk and are economical. Huge demand from the extraction location of refineries is expected to uplift the crude oil carrier market.

Developed economies such as the US, Germany, and China have driven product demand for fuel generation. Increased crude oil stockpiling due to low prices in Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and non-OECD regions is anticipated to drive the carrier market. However, high logistics costs and decreasing oil imports from regions that are tapping into renewable resources such as solar power are likely to hamper the market.

The crude oil carrier market can be bifurcated into ultra large crude carriers (ULCC)/ very large crude carriers (VLCC), Suezmax, Panamax, and Aframax. Among which ULCC and VLCC have extremely high carrying capacity in high oil-exporting countries having the capacity of 250000 DWT and 550000 DWT respectively. Crude oil carriers are also seen as a model of a floating storeroom by most of the energy companies. These tanks are feasible as they help in transportation of a huge quantity of crude oil.

The key market driver for the crude oil carriers market is increasing demand for bulk transportation, rapid industrialization, low cost of bulk fuels, and low global oil prices. In addition, the demand for bulk oil transportation facilities is also facilitating market growth. The increasing demand from the automotive and aviation industry has also uplifted the demand for crude oil.

High logistics expenditure and concerns regarding seasonal variations are hampering the crude oil carriers market growth along with decreasing imports that are beating into solar power. However, the crude oil carrier market has opportunities due to rapid industrialization.
