The rising international trade, increasing construction of military vessels, and adoption of modular construction approach represent some of the key factors driving the market.

Ship building refers to the process of designing and fabricating large marine vessels in a specialized facility known as a shipyard. It includes the construction of oil tankers, bulk carriers, container ships, general cargo vessels, cruise ships, ferries, tugs, and military vessels.

Shipbuilding utilizes various raw materials, such as steel, aluminum, alloys, wood, glass fibers, foam plastics, and composites. It involves multiple manufacturing steps, such as panel construction, section assembly, block building, erection, launching, pre-outfitting, painting, and slipway outfitting.

Manufactured ships undergo several phases of testing, such as hydrostatic tests, sea trials, and engine tests, to ensure hull integrity and optimum functioning of onboard equipment. Ship building is an essential and strategic manufacturing activity that helps in a country’s economic growth and caters to the demands of various industries, such as transportation, energy, defense, and fishing.

The rising international seaborne trade due to rapid globalization and economic growth is one of the primary factors driving the market growth. Ship building process is widely used to construct larger cargo ships, bulk carriers, and tankers that are utilized for transporting crude oils, petroleum products, steel, mineral ores, raw materials, vehicles, consumer electronics, fruits and vegetables, machinery, and other manufactured goods due to their enormous load-carrying capacity, cost-effectiveness, and fuel efficiency.

In addition to this, the implementation of various government initiatives by to boost maritime trade through the construction of new port facilities and the signing of free trade agreements is acting as another growth-inducing factor.

Furthermore, rapid military modernization coupled with increasing defense spending is facilitating the demand for shipbuilding to construct advanced military vessels, such as aircraft carriers, frigates, destroyers, cruisers, littoral combat ships, corvettes, fast patrol vessels, and amphibious assault ships.

Additionally, the adoption of a modular construction approach in shipbuilding that allows multiple shipyards to construct major modules of a ship, followed by final integration and testing, which in turn saves time, increases quality, and reduces costs, is positively influencing the market growth.

Moreover, the integration of augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) technologies in shipbuilding to provide immersive training to employees and allow engineers to place digital information in a visual environment to validate design concepts is favoring the market growth. Other factors, including rising import and export activities, increasing demand for eco-friendly ships, and the introduction of robotics in shipbuilding, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
