July 3rd-4th, 2013 Shanghai, China
SHANGHAI — Global ship scrapping tonnage increased by 8.8% year-on-year in 2012. However, data show that the global scrapping tonnage declined in Q1 2013, and the prices tend to be stabilized after reaching a peak. Where will the ship scrapping market head for in the following three quarters? The fluctuations of steel scrap prices and currency exchange rates put many recyclers in an awkward situation of “increased quantity and increased loss”. Are the steel scrap prices expected to rise in 2013? Greek ship owners are active in the SNP market, buying the Supramax, Handymax and Handy ships in early April. Should other buyers follow suit? How will the SNP market develop in the future?
“The 5th Annual Asia Ship Recycling & SNP Summit 2013” will be held on July 3rd-4th by CBI BIZ, which can be an ideal platform for speaking directly with Chinese ship owners, recyclers and international brokers, cash buyers. The summit will attract more than 150 attendees to gather in Shanghai, to look into market development trends, to learn updated policy status, and to focus on green ship recycling.
As the only conference based on China’s recycling and SNP market, it has already aroused attention in the industry. So far, many industry players, such as Wirana, GMS, Dalian Shipbuilding, ACM, ICAP, Braemar Seascope, China Shipping, Nanjing Ocean Shipping, Zodiac Maritime, TBS, Cosco, Evergreen Marine, Teekay, TSL group, Clipper, Cargill, etc. have already registered to attend this summit.
