www.shcri.com - "After more than 30 years of development, China has become a large ship repair country. After the reform and opening up, ship repair enterprises in Liaoning, Tianjin, Shandong, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian and Guangdong, etc are being expanded and strengthened continuously. The regional competition of Chinese ship repair industry concentrates in three regions - the Bohai Bay Rim centering on Dalian, Yangtze River Delta centering on Zhoushan and the Pearl River Delta centering on Guangzhou. Influenced by the financial crisis, Chinese ship repair industry sustained depression in 2009. Specifically, the volume of ships for repair was raised, while the repair business of single ship suffered drastic decline with substantial price reduction. The average plate renewing price was reduced from 2,800-2,900 USD/ton at the end of September 2008 to 1,000 USD/ton or even 900 USD/ton, approaching the record low. This is mainly because many enterprises competed for orders by low price. In 2009, the market scale of Chinese ship repair industry was about CNY 57 billion, dropping by about 5% YOY. It is forecast that Chinese ship repair industry will recover in 2010.
