Demand for Ships in China to reach 31m DWT

Wednesday, September 06, 2006
According a new report on China’s shipbuilding industry from Research and Markets, from 2006 to 2010, the total demand for ships in China will reach 31 million dead weight tons (DWT), and the annual demand will be 6.2 million DWT on average. The report, dubbed China Shipbuilding Industry Report, 2005–2006, notes that China’s ship completions rank third over the past 10 consecutive years, and the shipbuilding capacity has increased from 3.462 million DWT in 2002 to 12 million DWT in 2005.

The boom of China’s shipbuilding industry is closely linked with the development of marine industry, says the report. Although the global marine market declined in 2005, new opportunities emerged. As the world’s shipbuilding center gradually shifts to China, and with favorable industrial policies issued by the government, China could develop into the largest shipbuilding country over the course of the next 10 years, according to the report.
