The shipping sector in India is pivotal in global trade, with major ports like Mumbai, Chennai, and Kolkata serving as key nodes. It covers a range of sectors including container shipping, bulk carriers, tankers, and offshore services, with significant contributions from players like Shipping Corporation of India (SCI) and Adani Ports. India's extensive coastline, spanning over 7,500 kilometres, offers ample opportunities for maritime commerce, supported by ongoing infrastructure enhancements. Despite facing challenges such as infrastructure constraints, regulatory complexities, and competition from neighbouring ports, the industry has embraced technological advancements and digitalization to streamline operations and logistics. In essence, India's shipping industry is in a state of continuous evolution, striving to meet both global trade demands and domestic aspirations for growth and sustainability.
