Competitive opportunities

As expansion and diversification become common strategies for organisations looking to survive in an increasingly volatile market, evaluating the potential return on investment of entering different shipping market segments has never been more critical. Our team can support your in-depth SWOT analysis, leaning on decades of experience to bring your business valuable guidance on market positioning and competitive advantage. Our expertise on fleet dynamics, economies of scale ship design, port development, plus much more, can help you set performance indicators for revenue opportunities and trigger points for risk assessment.

Policy & regulation

Our decades of consulting experience across mainstream and niche maritime sectors, on both a global and localised scale, stands us apart from other consultants in the industry. You can have confidence in the consistency of our understanding of market dynamics, supporting your company or government-led organisation to set new regulation or react to policies you need to abide by. Our consulting offering includes analysis of seaborne trade and traffic trends on an international, regional or country-specific level, impact assessments of proposed environmental regulatory changes or new fee structures and assistance in creating policy support documents.

How shipbuilding market forecast consulting has helped our customers

The customer designs and builds compressors for the marine industry. They required advice on which pumps to produce and wanted to know the types and sizes of vessels that will be in demand in the years to come to ensure their production would match market requirements. Lloyd’s List Intelligence Consulting now provide them with monthly reports and customized tables detailing historic, current and forecasted shipbuilding data that feeds into their internal systems, allowing them to foresee demand and meet the needs of their customer base.
