EU shipbuilding sector

— filed under: ,

The shipbuilding industry is an important and strategic industry in a number of EU member states and for the European Community as a whole. There are more than 150 shipyards in the EU, with around 40 of them active in the global market for large sea-going vessels. The production in the EU concentrates increasingly in high-value market segments. The shipyards employ around 100.000 people directly and more than 400 000 indirectly. Since the enlargement of the EU, the annual turnover of the EU shipbuilding industry is more than EUR 11.5 billion.
