While actual numbers of aluminum and glass reinforced plastic/plywood clad dry freight containers in service have continued to increase throughout the 1970s, their percentage share of the total world dry freight container fleet has declined in almost direct proportion to the increased share of dry freight boxes owned by leasing companies. Whether actual growth in the number of these types of unit coming into service will continue is now perhaps open to question and with leasing companies forecast to continue to increase their share of the world fleet in the 1980s, it seems reasonable to assume that their percentage share of the world dry freight fleet will continue to decline. Manufacturers, however, are not convinced that this will be the case.
