EU Shipbuilding Sector

 

 

 

The shipbuilding industry deals with the production of larger (mainly seagoing) vessels intended for the merchant fleet (cargo or passenger transport), the off-shore energy industry or military purposes. It also includes products and services supplied for the building, conversion, and maintenance of these ships. The European Commission promotes the industry’s development and addresses competitiveness issues it faces.

Importance of the Shipbuilding Sector

The European shipbuilding industry is a dynamic and competitive sector. It is important from both an economic and social perspective. It is also linked to other sectors including transport, security, energy, research, and the environment.

  • There are about 150 large shipyards in Europe. Around 40 of them are active in the global market for large seagoing commercial vessels;
