The report looks at various drivers of the shipping markets, including the ongoing impact of evolving emissions regulations.
Contributions come from a range of senior research and broking experts and cover dry bulk, tanker, chemicals, and gas freight markets; shipping investments, CO2 emissions, green financing, freight derivatives, metals, and energy derivatives. Together, they give a taste of what to look out for in the second half of 2021.
SSY Chairman Mark Richardson said:
“The aim of this report is to offer a concise update on some of our key markets, looking at how the year has developed and what we might expect for the second half of 2021. The first six months of 2021 have been very much focused on the three Cs: China, Covid, and Carbon. The first is still the dominant force in shipping, the second continues to have an impact across the globe, and the third is fast becoming one of the key priorities in sustainable shipping. SSY will continue to watch the market closely and ensure we can provide the most up-to-date insights to our clients, underpinning our views with the latest research and data.”
