Portugal Shipbuilding Market Dynamics:

The use of waterways as a means of transportation has evolved over the years due to several important trade agreements between developed and developing nations. Free trade agreements have enabled duty, and tax reductions, which have accelerated country’s trade growth as exporters and importers no longer need to pay taxes to a government. These factors have resulted in increased production of container ships of various sizes and capacities and increased growth of the Portugal Shipbuilding Market.


Trade bloc countries are lowering tariffs and opening up their market, which boosts the demand for stronger containers, which drive the Portugal shipbuilding industry. The development of fuel-efficient engines and multifuel engines combined with improvements in shipbuilding has made shipping a more efficient mode of transportation which will also drive market growth for Portugal Shipbuilding Market through the forecast period.


Portugal's shipbuilding industry faces some challenges that can be illustrated by looking at its competitors in a typical market segment. China has the largest market share by volume, followed by Japan and the Netherlands. China has a scale on its side, which is reflected in its rates, while Japan and the Netherlands supply most of these vessels locally and rely less on the international market. While, Portugal is a relatively small manufacturer that depends more on foreign customers to sustain and expand its business. It seems the Portuguese shipbuilding industry needs to find a niche where they can differentiate their product and reach out to the international market.


Portuguese maritime administrations, including the Technical Commission of the International Shipping Registry of Madeira, will soon be able to manage a large number of registration applications for ships with the assistance of a technical team of experts. Ports are the most significant factor in this growing trend. It is mandatory to prepare ports for major maritime alliances. It should also develop appropriate infrastructure for large ships, streamline processes through digitization and simplifying, and use cleaner energy and supply sources. It creates job opportunities for unemployed people.


The first amendment to the Resolution was published on 24 December 2021 under the umbrella of the blue hub, and the Government aims to support new activities at sea under the umbrella of technological acceleration platforms and specific areas such as renewable energy sources from ocean locations, offshore aquaculture, robotics, and submarine cables to enhance the development and use of bio-economy. To achieve sustained growth of Madeira's fleet, the International Shipping Registry of Madeira must strengthen its technical response capacity, which meets all the requirements imposed by international conventions. Currently, partners that are engaged in maritime transport within the Madeira Free Trade Zone can benefit from this development.
