Ship Building Market Trends:

The growing international seaborne trade, owing to escalating globalization, is primarily driving the ship building market growth. Additionally, the launch of various initiatives by government bodies aimed at boosting maritime trade through the construction of new port facilities and the signing of free trade agreements is also positively influencing the global market.
