“Dredging in Figures” is an annual review of the global dredging market. This edition focuses on the global dredging industry in 2015.
Despite the slow growth and fluctuations in the world’s economy, the dredging industry’s turnover in 2015 (excluding the closed markets) increased to €7.115 billion compared to €6.415 billion in 2014 – mainly as a result of the sizable Suez Canal expansion project (€1.1 billion).
This paper highlights essential information about the dredging industry, which is divided into three sections – Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) that includes sustainability, emissions, safety; the drivers of the dredging industry; and the turnover in the open markets of the industry.
The statistics provided are based on information from public sources as well as from IADC member companies.
The “Dredging in Figures 2015” is now available for download.
