The shipping market in 2012 and looking forward

03 January 2013

The global economy continues to grow, albeit at a slower pace than previous years. The slower economic development has been difficult for ship owners who, with a severe overhang of tonnage, have struggled with a depressed freight market since the start of the financial crisis back in 2008.

Dry Bulk Shipping - New orders are still inked at high pace. 2012 is now set to be the biggest delivery year of them all at 88 million DWT

Following the summer dip where Capesize was hit badly, dry bulk freight rates have once again bounced back like a tumbler. Capesize rates are back at year-to-date average around USD 30,000 per day. Capesize freight rates are moving like a heartbeat, but at lower and lower pulse levels and going deeper and deeper as more vessels enter the market. In spite of remaining inefficiencies in the supply chain, slow steaming, and continued strong demand for raw materials going forward, the big ships are in for a fundamental imbalance between supply and demand.
