However, high logistics cost and decreasing oil imports that are beating into renewable solar power are likely to hamper the growth of the crude oil carrier market during the forecast period.

On the other hand, the high cost of capital required to acquire ships is also anticipated to create a negative impact on market growth. Furthermore, Longer hauls and fewer triangulation options or backhaul routes to reduce ballasting are likely to present growth opportunities for industry participants.

Therefore, Low bunker fuel prices are likely to spur increased earnings, leading to greater carrier application and demand across the globe.
