Since new investments are needed in the shipping industry, the financing of this sector is again one of the most important issues recently.
As estimated by Clarksons Research, over the decade 2014-2023 the financing of shipping industry would amount around USD 1.4 trillion, big increase in comparison to 90s. What is more, LNG and cruise ships would probably be two market segments that are likely to produce a lot of value-added over next ten years. According to Clarksons Research, they constitute about 20% of the forecast investment.
