In the first few months of this year, the pace of structural adjustment of the shipping market accelerated, and the volume of new ships in the world remained high. Chinese shipbuilding
enterprises have achieved good operating results by taking advantage of bulk carriers. Driven by the recovery of the shipbuilding industry, in the first half of the year, China's shipbuilding board production reached 6,373,500 tons, such as CCS-A and other models. It increased by 43.76% year-on-year. This shows that China's powerful and capable steel enterprises have adapted to the market, met high-end demand, and continuously promoted the transformation and upgrading of enterprises and adjusted the product structure. New achievements have been made.
However, in the long run, affected by the weak growth of the world economy, the difficulty of overcapacity, and the difficulties of shipping enterprises, the decline in the market turnover is obvious, the upward trend of new ship prices is blocked, and the market outlook is still not optimistic. The Chinese shipbuilding industry still faces many Difficulties and challenges. In addition, the current ship plate production growth is too fast, the spot market supply exceeds demand, the ship plate price is still in a deep decline, which brings great pressure to the relevant steel enterprises. According to industry insiders, under this circumstance, steel enterprises should not strengthen the improvement brought about by the recovery of the shipbuilding industry, and should continue to strengthen the adjustment and optimization of the marine steel product structure.
