Newbuild Prices See Sharpest Increase for Almost Two Decades

According to Clarksons newbuild prices are experiencing the sharpest increase for almost two decades thanks largely to the extremely high number of containerships and LNG carriers ordered over the past 15 months.

Vessel newbuilding prices have been rising for over a year, and the overall Clarkson Newbuilding Price Index now stands at 156 points, up 25% since the November 2020 low, indicating the highest prices – in nominal terms – since 2009.
