( BW)(RESEARCH-AND-MARKETS)(.) Research and Markets: U.S. Shipbuilding and Repair Report 2010 - This Industry Generates a Combined Annual Revenue of about $17 Billion

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/11aa87/shipbuilding_and_r) has announced the addition of the "Shipbuilding and Repair" report to their offering.

The US shipbuilding and repair industry includes about 600 companies with combined annual revenue of about $17 billion. Major companies include the shipbuilding divisions of General Dynamics and Northrop Grumman, both of which are US military contractors. Other top companies include BAE Systems Ship Repair, Bollinger Shipyards, the inland barge division of Trinity Industries, and VT Halter Marine (a subsidiary of Singapore Technologies Engineering). The industry is highly concentrated: the largest 50 companies account for about 90 percent of revenue.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

Demand for military shipbuilding is largely determined by the US military budget, and to a much lesser extent, the military spending of foreign governments allied with the US. Commercial shipbuilding demand is determined by international and domestic trade, the health of the global economy, and rate of fleet replacement due to age or obsolescence. Small companies usually specialize in building and repair of small commercial vessels. Large companies tend to offer a wide range of building and repair services for both commercial and military vessels, and enjoy economies of scale in purchasing, design, and manufacturing.

PRODUCTS, OPERATIONS & TECHNOLOGY

Revenue is generated by the design and construction of new commercial and military vessels, and the renovation and repair of existing ships. Commercial products include tankers, passenger vessels and cruise ships, barges and bulk carrier barges, and cargo and container vessels.
