According to the organizers, India Infrastructure Publishing, the event will discuss the recent trends and developments in the sector, highlight the experience of key players, and identify unresolved challenges.

The conference will also focus on strategies and solutions to meet future dredging requirements and showcase noteworthy projects, technologies and equipment.

The Indian ports and shipping sector is witnessing rapid expansion, which is boosting the need for dredging in India. At present, the total dredging market stands at 121 million m3. Of this, the dredging market for major ports is estimated to be approximately 80 million m3.

In the coming years, most major ports are expected to deepen and widen their navigational channels to draw deep draught vessels, which will open up opportunities for dredging players.

A parliamentary committee has also recommended increasing the draft depth of all ports under the Sagarmala Programme, as per their respective cargo profiles, to handle larger vessels. The development of new greenfield ports will also drive the demand for dredging.
