Worldwide Freight Forwarding Industry to 2026 – Asia-Pacific is Anticipated to Witness High Growth


Dublin, June 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Freight Forwarding Market – Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 – 2026)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global freight forwarding market is expected to grow steadily with a CAGR of more than 4% during the forecast period. The growth in international trade volumes is a major driver for the freight forwarding market. Moreover, the rise in trade agreements between countries is also contributing to the growth of the market. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing and the largest market for freight forwarding, with the Chinese freight forwarding market holding the maximum share.

Being non-asset based, the sector is facing high competition from other players in supply chain and technology-based companies which are disrupting the freight forwarding market. The market is one of the sectors that were hit the hardest by the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020. With the lockdown in many countries and a major focus on the production of essential products, the volumes of air and ocean freight have fallen significantly in 2020. However, the market is now recovering backed by the manufacturing and e-commerce industries; especially the air freight forwarding market with significant thrust during the period as reported by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in January 2021.

Key Market Trends

Sea Freight Forwarding to experience high growth rate through the forecast period

The global sea freight forwarding market is booming, owing to the growing internet penetration, increasing purchasing power parity, developments in infrastructure (ports, containers, and ships with new technologies), and services designed particularly for the e-commerce industry.

Sea freight forwarding is preferred by several end-user industries, and several strategic partnerships are also likely to promote the growth of sea freight forwarding during the forecast period. The growing global cross border e-commerce market is also driving the less-than-container load (LCL) volume and is positively impacting the sea freight forwarding market growth.

Factors, such as the growing trade volume in European trade routes, the increasing container port throughput, and the rising number of FTAs will significantly drive sea freight forwarding market growth in this region during the forecast period.

Germany and the United Kingdom are the key markets for sea freight forwarding in Europe. Market growth in this region will be faster than the growth of the market in other regions.

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to witness high growth through the forecast period

The global logistics industry is going through an uncertain period due to COVID-19. The Asia-Pacific market is one of the few regions that are still growing despite the pandemic.

For the freight and logistics market, Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region, globally. This is due to the increasing logistics in ASEAN countries and the presence of major economies, like China and India. Additionally, the high government support for the logistics sector in the region is also a factor boosting the industry growth.

China is the largest manufacturer in the region and in the world, with an increasing demand for pharmaceutical products and essentials. China reopened its factories way before other countries, as a result, it is still leading the freight forwarding market, globally.

Also, leading countries in the region are observing faster technological integration in the logistics process. In India, 80% of freight moves by road, and the trucking industry is adopting industry-leading tracking technology to trace and predict the exact delivery times. Thailand is incorporating IBM and Maersk’s blockchain project to streamline its shipment monitoring processes.

Competitive Landscape

The global freight forwarding market is made up of large number of players. However, the top 20 players dominate the market accounting for more than 50% of the total market. Leading players in the market include DHL Global Forwarding, Kuehne + Nagel International AG, DB Schenker, DSV and Expeditors International.

As the freight forwarding market is growing steadily and there exists abundant opportunity, the players need to embrace technologies, become more digitized, and increase the scale and efficiency of their operations. Having a strong network spanning across the globe is important for companies. As the industry is highly competitive and witnessing huge transformations, the companies need to develop specialized solutions to improve customer experience.

Companies are constantly under pressure to minimize cost and optimize operational efficiency. In the wake of investment shifts and diversification of global supply chains, international investors are increasingly interested in mergers and acquisitions in the ASEAN logistics market. Global logistics companies have been expanding in the ASEAN region, because of the increase in commerce and trade activities. As such, investment opportunities for the sector have been increasing accordingly.

Asia-Pacific 5G Strategic Direction Report: Voice of the Customer – 2020 Survey Report


Dublin, Feb. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Asia-Pacific 5G Strategic Direction: Voice of the Customer, 2020 Survey Report” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This study covers the Asia-Pacific market, focusing on developing countries including China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam, and developed countries including Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea.

To spur market demand for 5G, the supply side needs to increase awareness and understanding of its impact in the industry ecosystem. The need for 5G is closely linked to the understanding of its impact. The inability to identify need is affecting the timeline and the drive to push for 5G, and incorporation of 5G into new concept development.

The industry is still struggling with understanding end-user needs, partner fit, and the go-to-market plan. Telecoms and large companies are leading the incorporation of 5G into industry, but collectively the end users are trailing. There is a supply and demand gap and the reason is clear: there is simply not enough to cause an immediate shift from “as is” without the innovative ideas that can unlock the potential of 5G and lead to successful commercial 5G deployments.

It is important to note that despite levels of need and understanding not being as high as the analyst anticipated, the level of intent to implement 5G is undoubtedly high. To drive adoption of and scale 5G, new ways of thinking and working with partners to come up with end-to-end services are needed. The industry needs to shift from what it can do to what is needed. Government intervention with the inclusion of 5G in policies and public sector projects is also essential.

The target audience for this report includes telecommunications, media & entertainment, manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, government & public sector, and transportation & logistics professionals who want to understand how to strategically plan to incorporate 5G.

Key Issues Addressed

  • What is the level of understanding of the full impact of 5G on the industry ecosystem? Is there a clear need for 5G in the industry ecosystem?
  • What is the level of intent to embrace 5G technology? What challenges exist in planning for the incorporation of 5G into an industry ecosystem?
  • What is the level of lack of intent to embrace 5G technology? What are the reasons for the lack of intent?
  • What are some of the best practice considerations for 5G deployments?
  • What can governmental and regulatory bodies, the telecoms vertical, and end-user companies do to drive adoption of 5G? What are some of the considerations that can help to scale 5G?

Asia-Pacific Countries Dominate Agility Emerging Markets Logistic Index | Taiwan News | 2021/02/10


China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia among leaders in global logistics ranking

SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 10 February
2021 – Asia-Pacific
nations lead all emerging market regions with China, India and Indonesia being
the world’s top emerging markets in the 12th annual Agility Emerging
Markets Logistics Index, a broad gauge of competitiveness based on logistics
strength and business fundamentals.


The Index
ranks 50 countries by factors that make them attractive to logistics providers,
freight forwarders, shipping lines, air cargo carriers and distributors. Among
ASEAN countries, Vietnam climbs three spots to No. 8 overall. Indonesia (3),
Malaysia (5), Thailand (11) are strong; the Philippines rises one spot to No.
21.


China and
Vietnam were virtually alone in the world in 2020, posting positive GDP growth
for the year after being hit early by economic fallout from the COVID-19
pandemic.


Early 2020
supply disruptions in China prompted some to question whether it would
experience an exodus of manufacturing by multi-nationals seeking to diversify
sourcing and production. But the 1,200 logistics industry executives surveyed
for Agility’s Index indicate little desire to uproot from China or other
markets, preferring by a two-to-one margin to protect their supply chains by
accelerating adoption of digital tools and technology (41.3%) as opposed to
pursuing multi-shoring, near-shoring or reshoring strategies (21.9%).


Of those
who would consider moving out of China, more respondents chose Vietnam as a
preferred production hub than any other country (19.6%). Other Asian markets –
India (17.4%), Indonesia (12.4%), Thailand (10.3%) and Malaysia — are the next
leading choices. Only 7.8% of industry executives say relocating production
from China would mean reshoring to their home countries.


Asia-Pacific
is the region that more respondents believe will recover from the global
pandemic by the end of 2021. Of those surveyed, 55.9% predict an Asia-Pacific
economic recovery in 2021; 53.1% believe Europe will rebound.


“Asia Pacific experienced great turmoil in the
beginning of 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis, but it has rebounded strongly,
led by the powerful performance of China and Vietnam. The region is on track
for a full recovery this year,” says Andy Vargoczky, SVP of Sales &
Marketing Asia-Pacific, Agility GIL. “India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and
Vietnam continue to improve their supply chain infrastructure and capabilities,
showing why they are leaders in domestic and international logistics.”


 


Across 50 countries, China, India and Indonesia
rank highest in the Index for domestic logistics. China, India and Mexico are
on top for international logistics with Vietnam 4th, Indonesia 5th,
and Malaysia 7th. UAE, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia have the best
business fundamentals.


Transport Intelligence (Ti), a leading analysis
and research firm for the logistics industry, compiled the Index.


John Manners-Bell, Chief
Executive of Ti, says: “The strength of the Agility Emerging Markets Logistics
Index has always been to differentiate between those emerging markets which
demonstrate resilience in the face of adversity and those which are more
fragile. This year is no exception. Although some — especially China and
Vietnam — have been able to rebalance around domestic industrial and consumer
demand, the majority are still highly dependent on international markets and
investment. As the COVID crisis finally unwinds over the next two years, those
most resilient will bounce back the fastest. Inevitably, those which have
failed to embrace market, trade, governmental and social reforms will be
hardest hit by the fallout from the pandemic.”

Asia-Pacific countries dominate Agility emerging markets index – ANTARA News

2021 Index and Survey Highlights

● While total cost is driving overall shifts in production supply chains, today low-cost labor is barely a consideration for emerging market investment — with only 2.2% of industry executives saying it’s important. Executives say the most important factors are government bureaucracy and regulation (25.8%); infrastructure quality (14.1%); and supply of skilled labor (8.0%). As companies examine new production locations, they say their biggest concerns are inadequate infrastructure (14.5%) and additional cost (13.5%).

● Of the executives surveyed, 19.1% say 2020 sales decreased as a result of the pandemic. But only 9.4% say COVID-related employee safety measures have decreased efficiency.

● The sustainability movement has momentum. More than a quarter (26.9%) of executives surveyed say their companies are boosting implementation of environmentally sustainable practices in the wake of the pandemic. Another 45.2% say their plans are unchanged, suggesting they have no intention of retreating from sustainability commitments.

● The most competitive emerging markets are manufacturing powerhouses in Asia and the business-friendly economies in the Gulf region. From Asia, China (1), India (2), Indonesia (3), Malaysia (5) and Vietnam (8) made the top 10. Gulf nations United Arab Emirates (4), Saudi Arabia (6), Qatar (9) also ranked in the top 10. Mexico came in at 7th; Turkey was No. 10.

● In Latin America, Mexico is the strongest emerging market, ranking 7th overall. Argentina (36) and Venezuela (50) continue to be plagued by chronic economic dysfunction. Notably, though, eight countries in Latin America improved their business fundamentals: Uruguay, Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil, Paraguay, and Bolivia. The region’s best business climate is in Chile, which ranks 5th out of 50 countries in that category.

● Nigeria improved its competitiveness more than any country in the 2021 Index, moving up five spots to No. 30, the highest climb for any market in Sub-Saharan Africa in the 12 years of the Index. Nigeria improved its relative position in all three areas of the Index: business climate, international logistics and domestic logistics.

● The countries improving their domestic logistics strengths the most were Malaysia, Nigeria, Vietnam, Iran, Uruguay, Myanmar and Cambodia. The biggest strides in international logistics came from Morocco, Ukraine, Kenya, Myanmar and Paraguay.

Transport Intelligence (Ti), a leading analysis and research firm for the logistics industry, compiled the Index.

John Manners-Bell, Chief Executive of Ti, says: “The strength of the Agility Emerging Markets Logistics Index has always been to differentiate between those emerging markets which demonstrate resilience in the face of adversity and those which are more fragile. This year is no exception. Although some – especially China and Vietnam – have been able to rebalance around domestic industrial and consumer demand, the majority are still highly dependent on international markets and investment. A lack of global demand, combined with the breakdown of air and sea logistics networks, has had severe consequences for these economies and societies. As the COVID crisis finally unwinds over the next two years, those most resilient will bounce back the fastest. Inevitably, those which have failed to embrace market, trade, governmental and social reforms will be hardest hit by the fallout from the pandemic.”

logistics assets are keenly sought after,” according to the survey.

Tokyo retained its top position as the most preferred city for cross-border
investment. The availability of high-quality assets and strong liquidity has
made Tokyo a top-three investment destination since 2018.

It was followed by Singapore, Seoul of the Republic of Korea and Shanghai of
China./.

Convergence of Solutions into Holistic Web Protection Bundles Transforming the Asia-Pacific Web Application Firewall (WAF) Solutions Market, Forecast to 2024


New York, Dec. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report “Convergence of Solutions into Holistic Web Protection Bundles Transforming the Asia-Pacific Web Application Firewall (WAF) Solutions Market, Forecast to 2024” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p05996829/?utm_source=GNW

On-premises WAF solutions available in the Asia-Pacific market tend to have more comprehensive rulesets than their cloud-based counterparts.A major focus for WAF solution vendors is to achieve ruleset parity between on-premises and cloud-based versions.

With the increased frequency of API gateway attacks, these vendors are emphasizing improving API inspections through automation and machine learning capabilities. The WAF solutions market remains in its growth stage, with the momentum expected to continue as organizations increasingly deploy their workloads on the cloud. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations have engaged tools and security solutions to enable their employees’ remote work. Stringent regulations on data security also continue to play a vital role in pushing organizations to deploy security solutions to ensure compliance. In addition to market growth analysis, the study looks at potential restraints likely to impact the WAF solutions market. WAF solutions are not at the top of many organizations’ priorities. This means organizations may introduce WAF capabilities by deploying integrated security solutions that offer some WAF protection instead of installing stand-alone WAF solutions. These typically do not match stand-alone WAF solutions that provide more comprehensive and in-depth coverage and protection. The analyst examined market trends from 2018 to 2024, with the base year being 2019. WAF solutions are this study’s focus area. The industry segmentation includes the government, banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI), service providers, manufacturing, education, pharmaceuticals, retail, logistics, oil and gas, energy, mining, agriculture, information technology/information technology-enabled services (IT/ITeS), e-commerce, and business process outsourcing (BPO).Companies mentioned in the Asia-Pacific market’s competitive landscape include Akamai, Alibaba Cloud, Array Networks, Barracuda Networks, Citrix Systems, Cloudflare, Cyber Security Cloud (CSC), DBAPPSecurity, F5 Networks, Fortinet, Fujitsu, Imperva, JP-Secure, MONITORAPP, NEC, NSFOCUS, Penta Security Systems, PIOLINK, Qualys, Radware, Sangfor, SecureSky Technologies, Trinity Software, Venustech, and other smaller vendors. Countries included in this study are Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, Japan, and South Korea.

Asia-Pacific Distributed Denial-of-Service Protection Solutions Market, Forecast to 2024


New York, Dec. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report “Asia-Pacific Distributed Denial-of-Service Protection Solutions Market, Forecast to 2024” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p05996837/?utm_source=GNW

In addition to acts committed for financial gain, simmering geopolitical tensions have prompted state-sponsored DDoS attacks on enterprises, government agencies, and critical infrastructure, notably in Australia and New Zealand. Governments and nationally significant enterprises are thus taking steps to defend themselves by adopting state-of-the-art DDoS solutions.IoT and interconnectivity have considerably expanded the threat landscape. The proliferation of unsecured connected devices makes them extremely susceptible to launch DDoS attacks; this has subsequently driven demand for DDoS solutions. The gaming and media industries have skyrocketed in size and popularity. Incidentally, these industries receive some of the highest numbers of DDoS attacks. These circumstances have significantly expanded the addressable market for DDoS solutions, as players in Asia-Pacific seek to mitigate attacks’ devastating impact.Overall, cybercrime has become easier to engage in for amateur and professional criminals alike. Barriers to cyber tools and cyber mercenaries are eroding as the dark web and open-source technology democratize availability. As a result, even individuals with little-to-no technical skills are capable of launching their DDoS attacks.In addition to a market growth analysis, the study highlights the key restraints afflicting the market. Awareness of the existence and capabilities of DDoS protection is still low in Asia-Pacific. However, even for those with awareness, DDoS protection remains low on the priority list and is usually only considered by the largest enterprises. Ultimately, even with DDoS solutions in place, the lack of cybersecurity expertise hinders the effectiveness of having these solutions in-house. Instead, integrated security and outsourcing DDoS protection are becoming more commonplace to address the chronic shortage of cybersecurity professionals.Market trends are analyzed from 2018 to 2024, with the base year being 2019. DDoS solutions are the key focus area in this study. The vertical segmentation in this study includes the government, banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI), service providers, manufacturing, education, eCommerce, and other sectors including pharmaceuticals, retail, logistics, oil and gas, energy, mining, agriculture, IT/ITES, e-Gaming, and BPOs.Companies mentioned in the total Asia-Pacific market’s competitive landscape include Akamai, Alibaba Cloud, F5 Networks, NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, NSFOCUS, Radware, Imperva, Huawei, Neustar, Nexusguard, AhnLab, WINS, Genie Networks, A10 Networks, and other smaller vendors. The countries included in this study are Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, Japan, and South Korea.

Hanoi (VNA)
– Three Vietnamese startups have been selected by
Microsoft to participate in the “Highway to a 100 Unicorns” initiative in the
Asia-Pacific region, a scheme that aims to strengthen the region’s startup
ecosystem.

The Vietnamese representatives participating in the project include the
corporate management platform Base.vn, logistics application service provider
Abivin, and House3 platform, Radio the Voice of Vietnam (VOV) reported.

Through joining the initiative, all three startups
will receive technological consultancy, access to customers, and other support
from Microsoft. 

Pham The Truong, General Manager of Microsoft Vietnam, outlined that the
country has over 1,500 startups operating across various fields, adding that
the percentage of startups nationally remains even higher in comparison with
other countries throughout the region. Despite this, Truong noted that only 3 percent of these startups have gone on to become successful, according to surveys.

He emphasised that the “Highway to a 100 Unicorns” initiative will serve as a
bridge between the start-up community and Microsoft’s leading experts. Indeed,
the tech giant will equip local startups with essential business and
technological skills in an effort to improve their competitiveness, all whilst
developing in a sustainable manner in order to reach various regional and
international markets./.
