2021 13th Annual Shipping & Marine Services Forum - The S&P and Newbuilding Markets - Impact of Technology, Finance & Regulation

THE S&P AND NEWBUILDING MARKETS – IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY, FINANCE & REGULATION

How do the freight rates of today’s shipping markets impact ship operations, fleet maintenance and fleet renewal? Different market segments operate under different dynamics – overall there seems to be brisk demand for ships today while shipping companies need to prepare for the next generation ships and shipyards seem to be quite booked. Green Shipping seems to be a one-way road – but how do companies navigate given the uncertainty on fuel types and their infrastructure, rapid technological developments, new regulatory requirements, availability of finance and charterer preferences? The panel will provide the viewpoint of major stakeholders from different angles – shipbroking, technology and finance.
