Global Ship Recycling Faces Challenges Amid Tonnage Scarcity

81

  • GMS’s weekly report underscores persistent tonnage scarcity in ship recycling markets, contributing to a week of market inactivity across all recycling destinations.
  • Charter rates, especially in the dry bulk sector, remain high, limiting the availability of vessels for recycling.

The Bangladeshi and Pakistani markets experience firm demand and offers, while India exhibits reserved sentiments and pricing. In the container sector, older units find buyers willing to operate them above Opex/Capex rates. Ongoing geopolitical concerns and Houthi rebel attacks in the Red Sea contribute to elevated freight rates, defying expectations of quieter shipping lanes during the Chinese New Year. Political changes in South Asian ship recycling destinations and negative movements in import steel and the Turkish Lira impact the market negatively.
