CHANGING FORTUNES OF TRADITIONAL SHIPBUILDING NATIONS

An analysis based on data within the soon-to-be-published 1980 edition of Containerisation International Yearbook's register of container carrying vessels shows that European shipyards have come off badly in the scramble for recent cellular newbuilding contracts. Although Japanese and US builders have retained their market shares, emergent shipyards in South Korea, Taiwan, Poland and Brazil have achieved success at the expense of traditional European containership building centres. West Germany, which has built the biggest share of large cellular vessels delivered to date, is the major casualty. The analysis also highlights size, age and flag contracting trends.
