The inland navigation system is amidst a number of developments as barge fleets have become pressured on increased demand, a diversifying commodity mix, towboat advances, changes with crew requirements and expected improved conditions going forward. Informa Economics IEG has prepared a Fact Book report that includes a five-year valuation and Outlook of the Market Opportunities for the Barge and Towboat Markets of the Mississippi River System.

With the dynamics that have emerged in recent years, and changes to ownership/operators through merger and acquisitions, this Fact Book is an indispensable resource to gain insight and understanding of and into the inland navigation industry through 2023.

The Fact Book included detailed five-year outlooks for the dry covered ad open barges, and chemical, clean and dirty liquid tank fleets, along with the commodities that move in those barges, with discussion on the key drivers influencing the commodities markets. A review and assessment of the towboat sector als is presented. Discussion on river and navigation regulations, ownership and operation conditions are highlighted.
