The brightening prospects in the bulk chemical ship sector of the shipping industry as of 1988, and the reasons behind the upturn, are examined. The deepsea and shortsea trades are separately discussed. Two accompanying tables give statistical data on the shortsea and deepsea chemical tanker fleets. For each operator listed, the entries show the number of vessels operated, the total deadweight tonnage of the fleet, and the percentage of capacity represented, respectively, by stainless steel, zinc and epoxy tankage.
