Other countries where there are also opportunities such as India, Indonesia, Vietnam are relatively close by.

Market Information

In Singapore, repairs and conversions are carried out on oil and gas platforms, jack-up rigs and FPSOs, among others. It also repairs and maintains a large number of vessels, such as tankers and LNG carriers. The year 2022 marked the 'revival' of fossil fuels. The 'oil Services market,' which already recovered strongly in 2022, is likely to improve further in the coming years. Even segments such as 'drilling' and 'shipping' are experiencing a very strong rebound. Sembcorp Marine and Keppel Offshore & Marine are very active in the energy sector. Over the years, they have built, converted or repaired just about every ship imaginable: FPSOs, drill ships, jack-ups, floating LNG plants, FSRUs, and so on.

The lion's share of all shipbuilding in Asia takes place in the East. In terms of Compensated Gross Tonnage (CGT), China accounts for most of the global order intake and deliveries in 2022 of commercial ocean-going vessels. Following China is South Korea and then Japan. Globally, container ships account for a large share of order books in terms of CGT. Other order books include gas tankers, bulk carriers, oil and chemical tankers, passenger ships and ferries and the category of "other non-cargo vessels.

Asia also tops the rankings in terms of repair and maintenance. China ranks No. 1 in that regard. 42% of reported repair events from early 2021 through August 2022 are attributable to yards located in China, according to Clarksons Research. Followed by Turkey (10%) and Singapore (3%).

In short, there is a lot of shipbuilding and ship repair taking place in Asia.
