The India Ports Infrastructure Market is anticipated to grow at a steady pace and register a high CAGR in the forecast period, 2024-2028. By 2024, the Ministry of Shipping has established a capacity of more than 313 MMT, which would be supported by involvement from the private sector. More than 505 of this capacity is anticipated to be produced by minor ports.

The foundation of port operations is the port infrastructure, which serves the ships, goods, and people who travel through ports. Port infrastructure development necessitates lengthy planning horizons, capital-intensive expenditures, and extended lead times.

COVID-19 Impact on India Ports Infrastructure Market

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has had a negative impact on a number of economic sectors. Lockdowns and limitations brought on by the pandemic have had a significant impact on port operations due to a lack of people on the ground, a delay in the manufacturing of port equipment, and interruption of international supply lines. Restrictions also caused goods delivery to be delayed and commerce and marine traffic to decline. But a number of vessels were also stranded on routes, and route restrictions also contributed to backlogs in ports and warehouses.

Ukraine-Russia War Impact on Maritime Industry

The war between Russia and Ukraine has caused significant activity interruptions in the transportation and logistics sector. Demand for shipping through seaways has decreased as a result of the disruption of trade channels caused by blockades in the Black Sea and other shipping routes. The demand for maritime services has decreased in both nations as a result of large shipping firms terminating services to and from Russia.

Government Initiatives

Sagarmala Program:

By using India's coastline and waterways to their full capacity, the Sagarmala Program seeks to improve the performance of the logistics sector in India. A number of initiatives, including port modernization, connectivity improvement, port-led industrialization, and coastal community development, have been launched as part of the Sagarmala project. Sagarmala project has following aims:

  • Reduce logistic costs for export-import (EXIM) and domestic trade with minimal infrastructure investment.
  • Optimize cost of EXIM container movement.
  • Lower the logistics cost of bulk commodities by locating future industrial capacities near the coast.
  • Improve export competitiveness by developing port-proximate discrete manufacturing clusters.
  • Reduce the cost of transporting domestic cargo by optimizing the modal mix.

Over 800 projects totaling approximately USD 66 billion in projected cost have been chosen for execution as part of the Sagarmala Program and will be carried out between 2015 and 2035 in all coastal states as well as on the Eastern and Western edges of the nation. The Ministry has approved a financial support package of USD 3.28 million and issued USD 0.71 million to Chennai Port Trust as the remaining payment on the second instalment for the construction of paved storage for processing export goods. In order to maximize the potential for port-led growth, more than 504 projects have been identified, and more than USD 428400 million of infrastructure investment is anticipated as a result of these initiatives. As of March 31, 2022, 217 projects totaling USD 25440 million were being implemented as part of the Sagarmala initiative, out of which 194 projects totaling USD 12020.10 million had already been finished. In the state of Andhra Pradesh, the Sagarmala Program has identified about 119 projects totaling more than USD 12000 million that will improve the infrastructure for port-led industrialization, port modernization, port connectivity enhancement, coastal community development, coastal shipping, and inland waterways. In Maharashtra State, 131 projects totaling USD 12600 million were identified under Sagarmala, and 33 of those projects have been finished.

Major Port Authorities Bill, 2020

The Major Port Trusts Act of 1963 would be replaced by the bill presented to Lok Sabha in March 2020. The measure attempts to professionalise port governance by decentralising decision-making. Additionally, it will contribute to greater openness in how various ports operate.


On September 10, 2020, Shri Mansukh Mandaviya, MOS(IC) Shipping, introduced SAROD-Ports. These ports serve to improve the dispute resolution mechanism by allowing a panel of technical specialists to serve as arbitrators while also providing inexpensive and prompt dispute resolution in a fair way. Because of the rapid, prompt, affordable, and effective conflict resolution procedure provided by this organisation, it will encourage ease of doing business in the marine industry.

Ship Building Financial Assistance Policy (2016-2026)

Any vessel whose construction starts after legally binding contracts have been signed qualifies for financial support. Boats that are built and delivered within three years after the contract's signing date are eligible for financial assistance under the scheme. The delivery period for specialist boats might be increased to six years. Financial support for Indian shipyards should be at a rate of 20% of the contract price, actual revenues, or fair price (whichever is lower). According to the plan, the amount of financial aid provided will be decreased by 3% every three years.

Growth Drivers

  • As part of the GatiShakti NMP, the Ministry of Ports, Shipping, and Waterways (MOPSW) has identified 101 projects that are expected to cost approximately USD 7603.87 million and are intended to be finished by 2024.
