Covid-19 scenario:

The Covid-19 pandemic and prolonged lockdown in several countries have hampered the manufacturing sector. Shipbuilding companies suffered heavy losses in the first and second quarters of 2020, due to disrupted supply chains and production schedules.
The pandemic has caused disruptions to shipyard operations, such as the development of new buildings and repair and conversion projects.
The bulk carrier segment dominates the market

By type, the bulk carrier segment held the largest share in 2020, accounting for more than a third of the market. However, the general cargo vessel segment is expected to register the highest CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period.
