Trends in the maritime industry

IBP has just made available for free download the SMM Maritime Industry Report (MIR), prepared jointly by Hamburg Messe & Congress GmbH (HMC), as the organizer of SMM, and the market research institute Mindline.

Themed Trends in SMMart Shipping, the publication considered the views of more than 2,500 participants, including senior executives, from 69 countries, to find out how decision-makers assess the future of the industry and which are their main concerns, expectations and priorities, especially after a troubled period due to the drop in new orders.
