Korean Shipbuilders Aim for $36b in Orders

Wednesday, January 10, 2007
Korea's top-three shipbuilders are eyeing $36b in sales this year, down from a record $37b last year. Korean shipbuilders secured almost half of the $100b in global orders last year offering a competitive balance of price and quality.

Korea's Hyundai Heavy Industries is the world's largest shipbuilder followed by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Samsung Heavy. Source: Arirang News
