Korean Shipbuilders Received More Orders


Orders received by Korean shipbuilders rose steeply in 2000, up 65 percent to $15.2 billion, with the number of vessels rising 38 percent to 313 units, announced the Korea Shipbuilders' Association. This gives Korea a top position for the second straight year as the world's leading shipbuilder. The association linked the higher growth in the value of orders over the actual number to the increased orders for large, high-priced ships.

During the last year, Korean shipbuilders constructed 180 ships, or 6.5 million compensated gross tonnage (CGT), worth $9.6 billion. At the end of 2000, the backlog of orders totaled 503 vessels worth $23.1 billion, enough to keep the industry working for two and a half more years. Increased shipbuilding facilities by newly emerging shipbuilders, including China, are expected to give the world's shipbuilding industry more capacity than ever, raising prospects for fierce competition for a bigger share of the market. But shipbuilders in South Korea and Japan, the two leaders in the global market, have already secured enough orders to keep them afloat and can afford to focus on high-end and value-added products.
