The study examines the development of shipbuilding in Third World nations since 1970 and analyses the motives which have led to the growth of such highly capital intensive industries in countries with scarce capital resources. National fleet development and the desire to industrialise are the foremost reasons for this growth, and common denominators in examining individual countries are not only central government involvement but also the existence of co-ordinated shipping/shipbuilding policies. Further, the rapid growth of shipbuilding in the Third World could not have been achieved without substantial technical and financial aid from established shipbuilding nations. These factors and many others are examined in Part 2 of the Study, where the shipbuilding industries of Third World nations are analysed. The Study concludes by forecasting and estimating the role these emerging nations will play in the future and, perhaps more importantly, what the role of the traditional shipbuilding countries will be in the light not only of increased competition from the Third World but also of significant competition from COMECON countries.
