About the Report

  • The tug and towboat industry in the U.S. is fragmented across several small to mid-size regional manufacturers.
  • With more than 50 active commercial boat builders, and more than 100 inactive ones, few new companies have entered the business in recent years.
  • However, several foreign tug and towboat manufacturers have entered the U.S. market to get a toehold and comply with the Jones Act.
  • Some industry consolidation is inevitable, especially given the increase in steel and aluminum tariffs by the Trump Administration.
  • Key factors driving the market are booming oil and natural gas markets, increased grain shipments, new chemicals capacity and the low cost of marine transportation.
  • This database and analysis brings together 40 identified tugboat and towboat fabricators in the United States.
  • Breakouts by tugboat/towboat type with units and dollar sales, and prices unique to each segment.
  • This report provides a wide scope and coverage in providing crucial competitive estimates.
