An S&P Global Commodity Insights and BIMCO joint webinar.

The world's leading dry bulk trading nations face challenges such as a protracted war, a real estate crisis, rising youth unemployment, and reduced consumer spending. Projections look bearish for the dry bulk shipping markets.

There are winners and losers. China significantly expanded the import of coal despite also increasing output from domestic mines. Brazilian grain exports have surpassed previous records, while the USA endures an unfavourable harvest season, and the Black Sea Grains Initiative remains fractious at best.

Yet analysts suggest that cargo volume growth is likely to be less robust in 2024, potentially hindering dry bulk carrier earnings in the medium term. How can dry bulk market participants navigate the challenges and maximize earnings in times of unprecedented uncertainty?

Join us in this BIMCO/S&P Global Commodity Insights webinar where shipping analysts from across the globe discuss the current state of the dry bulk market and drivers as well as attempt a baseline outlook.

Time: 09:00-10:00 UTC
