1. Market situation overview. After a decade of un-precedent growth, the global marine business is in serious decline due to many factors. Those factors include the global economic recession putting downward pressure on international shipping of goods but also to some degree the over-building of the global fleet. Currently, the bulk container market is seeing a revitalization as the need for global commodities recovers. The tanker and container markets are in the midst of a historical down turn. New orders are off approximately 50-60% as the global market recovers. building of cruise vessels has essential stopped during the global downturn. Primarily focused in Europe this segment has been hit especially hard. Oil & Gas workboats continue to be built and order intake is highly dependent on oil price recovery. As for geography, China and Korea will continue to dominate this market with Japan building primarily for domestic owners.
Who are we talking to? Primary focus is on Asian shipbuilding yards and specific owners. Key titles include procurement, engineering and installers.
