Asia will be the global leader in terms of new-build liquids storage capacity (with 43.32 million m3) during the period to 2023, according to GlobalData.
The company’s report 'Global Liquids Storage Industry Outlook to 2023 – Capacity and Capital Expenditure Outlook with Details of All Operating and Planned Terminals' reveals that Asia will also be the top new-build CAPEX spender globally on planned and announced projects during the outlook period.

Countries such as China, Indonesia and India are expected to drive the liquids storage capacity growth by 2023.”
