The country is trying to restructure its economy, which is showing slow growth in recent years. The country's economic growth depends on the import of raw materials and export of finished goods. The trend in China's reform process has been initiated, which is changing the significant source for dry bulk demand and impacting the container and wet bulk sectors.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is growing international market for OPVs. Maritime security operations include the action undertaken by modern naval forces to battle illegal activities like piracy, slavery, and hijacking. These ships and vessels are engaged in offshore patrolling to combat sea-based terrorism. Currently, many countries are re-directing their defense strategies due to uncertainties in some regions like the Middle East and APAC. This will impact the market positively, as an increase in the demand for naval vessels will integrate safety aspects like marine firefighting equipment.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is slowdown in South Korea's shipbuilding industry. The South Korean shipbuilding industry is witnessing a slowdown due to the plunge in global energy prices, overproduction of ships, and sluggishness in international trade. The country's three biggest shipbuilding companies, namely, Daewoo, Samsung Heavy Industries, and Hyundai Heavy Industries recorded losses in 2015 and 2016. In South Korea, the shipbuilding industry is a major contributor to the economic development and is important to the country's international position. The slowdown in South Korea's shipbuilding market has affected international trade and will have a negative impact on the demand for marine firefighting equipment.
