The Indian shipbuilders occupied 6th rank globally accounting for 1.3% of the global orderbook aggregating 3.82 mn CGT with 187 vessels

The global economy recovering from the aftermaths of economic crisis grew at 5.1% on y-o-y basis during CY10 leading to a marginal increase in seaborne trading volumes. This provided an impetus to the new-build ordering volumes during CY10 aggregating 71.1 mn GT. Conversely, the orderbook continued to decline aggregating 287.8 mn GT as on December 31, 2010 owing to the continuous flow of deliveries by the shipyards. However with the global economy slowing down in the latter half of H1CY11 on account of fiscal imbalances in the developed nations, the seaborne trading volumes deteriorated, adding to the woes of the already over-existent vessel capacity. Nonetheless, the momentum in the new-build ordering continued through H1CY11 aggregating 31 mn GT increasing by 19.2% on y-o-y basis. The orderbook however declined to 269.9 mn GT as on June 30, 2011 on account of higher deliveries aggregating 47.7 mn GT during H1CY11.
Even the surge in scrapping volumes particularly in the dry bulk vessel segment and y-o-y decline in vessel prices in the range of 2-9% during H1CY11 provided no respite to the dwindling global shipbuilding orderbook, especially in case of major shipbuilding nations such as S. Korea, China and Japan thereby requiring their respective governments to take corrective monetary and non-monetary incentives to boost the industry’s prospects.However, the Asian shipbuilders continue to dominate the global orderbook accounting for 95.4% of the total orderbook as on June 30, 2011. Of the same, in continuation of the trend during CY10, the market share of the Chinese shipbuilders in the global orderbook remained the highest at 39.7% followed by S. Korean and Japanese shipbuilders with 35.3% & 14.4% respectively.
