Orders for offshore engineering equipment have increased significantly. In 2013, China received more than 18 billion US dollars of orders for various types of offshore engineering equipment, accounting for 29.5% of the world market share, 16% higher than that in 2012, and has surpassed
Singapore, ranking second in the world. A total of 61 offshore engineering platforms and 1 drilling vessel have been undertaken, including 49 jack up drilling platforms, accounting for more than half of the world total.
In 2013, China's shipbuilding completed 45.34 million dwt, a year-on-year decrease of 24.7%, including 15.51 million revised gross tons for seagoing vessels, and 69.84 million deadweight tons for new orders, with a year-on-year increase of 242.2%, including 22.81 million corrected gross tons for
seagoing vessels. As of the end of December, the number of orders for hand-held vessels was 131 million dwt, up 22.5% year-on-year. Among them, 42.46 million tons of seagoing ships were revised, and 88.1% of the total were exported ships.
In 2013, the market share of China's three major indicators of shipbuilding continued to maintain the world's leading position. The number of shipbuilding completed, new orders received and hand-held orders accounted for 41.4%, 47.9% and 45.0% of the world's total, respectively. The number of new
orders increased by 4.3% compared with 2012. The new orders of ships are further concentrated in the advantageous enterprises. In 2013, the top 20 enterprises received a total of 55.86 million dwt, accounting for the total of China
0%, 5.5 percentage points higher than that in 2012. New breakthroughs have been made in high-tech ship orders. Six 174000 cubic meters dual fuel electric propulsion large-scale liquefied natural gas carriers (LNG) and four 83000 cubic meters large-scale liquefied gas carriers (vlgc) have been
received. A total of 64 large container ships with 8000 or more containers have been newly contracted, accounting for about 40% of the world's total.
