The Leading Maritime Nations of the World 2018

DNV GL and Menon Economics are proud to present the “Leading Maritime Nations of the World” 2018.

The benchmarking study digs into a broader range of indicators on maritime capabilities and performance, and the research provides maritime stakeholders a holistic perspective of countries that influence the shape of future international maritime activities globally.
The maritime industry is defined as “All companies that own, operate, design, build, deliver equipment or specialized services to all types of ships and other floating units.”
Four main dimensions are considered:

• Shipping
• Maritime finance & law
• Maritime technology
• Ports & logistics

The benchmarking study was formed based on the deep dive analysis of the quantitative statistical information gathered from widely used and renowned source; where after the selected 30 leading maritime nations were ranked by size and magnitude on all four dimensions of maritime activities and their sub-groups. With shipping sector being a main engine of the entire maritime industry, more weight-age was given to the shipping sector.

We are happy to share a presentation of the study with you. The full study will be released in the first week of October 2018.
