A SHIP REPAIR MARKET ASSESSMENT
The changing industrial environment in ship repair--not only in the U.S. but worldwide--has been influencing the shape and size of the U.S. industry. The report is an attempt to review the industrial situation over the last decade to better assess the character of the industry at the present time. It also forecast the potential market for the industry in the next decade and offers some recommendations which would lead to a stronger ship repair environment in the future. The report is oriented more toward market analysis than it is toward describing the mere workings of the industry. Subjects such as facilities utilization, employment, productive efficiency, etc. are covered only as they bear on an understanding of the world and domestic markets for ship repair companies.
