Since the early-1990s, we have regularly undertaken industry-wide studies to assist in the performance improvement of maritime industry sectors or to provide the information required to formulate government policies. These studies typically investigate sectors within individual countries or wider geographical regions and are customised to meet specific needs.
Industry structure and statistics, skills, use of technology, market forecasts and future prospects are usually part of these studies. The findings are generally used to inform an action plan developed in partnership with our clients and other participants as appropriate.
Our clients for these services are usually government departments, industry trade associations or other non-governmental organisations.
We also undertake competitiveness studies for individual shipyards. These are described in our market research section.
