By the end of 2020, only 60 large civil ships are expected to be built in Russia


The Russian shipbuilding industry is experiencing a deficit in effective demand.
By the end of 2020, no more than 60 large vessels (about 10 non-self-propelled) are expected to be commissioned in the civilian segment of Russian shipbuilding, Kommersant writes with reference to experts from the Infoline-Analytica agency.

They note that the industry is experiencing a deficit in effective demand, which has increased in the context of the economic crisis.

According to expert Mikhail Burmistrov, the share of civil shipbuilding in the structure of shipyards’ revenue in 2020 will not exceed 40%, and the prospects for its growth are associated primarily with the delivery of large-capacity vessels at Zvezda, as well as serial fishing and crab fishing vessels – already from 2021 …

At the end of 2019, the Russian shipbuilding and shipbuilding market with a tonnage of more than 50 tons (including non-self-propelled vessels) decreased in value terms by 19%, to 137.8 billion rubles. A total of 103 civil ships and warships were delivered.
