Latin America continues to be a region of opportunity for the breakbulk sector. Energy, mining, and infrastructure are taking up the biggest share of megaprojects currently under construction and the region is tipped for huge growth in the renewables sector, particularly offshore wind and hydrogen. The decommissioning market is also on the rise and, alongside this, large scale port development to service the needs of the region’s projects.
