DRY BULK CARRIERS: THE MARKET IN 1979

This article provides a brief analysis of the Dry Bulk Carrier market of 1979. This analysis includes supply and demand figures for the handy size and Panamax bulk fleet, the large bulk fleet, and dry bulk cargos such as coal, iron ore and grain. After five years of depression, 1979 saw an air of optimism pervade the dry bulk market, with the steam coal and grain trades appearing strong. The future of the dry bulk trades, however, remains unclear, with long term recovery only a possibility, not a certainty.
