Executive Summary

The Global Shipbuilding Market was valued at USD 240.12 Billion in the year 2020. As ships are the key mode of transportation for countries around the world, the shipbuilding sector forms an integral part in the development of nations. Overall, the Commercial Ship Business sector may see a slight increase in orders compared to 2020. New orders are expected to resume, backed up by the implementation of full-scale LNG projects. Demand for new container ships is also expected to pick up, spurred by the improved VLCC market resulting from reinforced environmental regulations, replacement of aging ships, and ship efficiency optimizations.
