Busan, the leading maritime & shipbuilding capital of the world.
Republic of Korea has long been a country of the world’s top shipbuilder in terms of annual orders and construction volume. Despite the recent long-term economic recession and the COVID-19 of our global industry, the Republic of Korea has regained its status as the world’s leading shipbuilding and marine industries by winning 42% of the world’s orders ($18.3 billion). Especially, in the first quarter of 2021, 52% of the world’s orders was taken by Korean Shipyards.
