The shipbuilding industry is responsible for the design and construction of oceangoing vessels all around the world. The shipbuilding industry is involved in the construction and modification of ships and these operations are carried out in specialized facilities called shipyards. The industry builds ships for commercial as well as military purposes. Most of the global ship production is concentrated in Asian countries such as China, Japan and South Korea, though large shipyards also exist in many other countries.

Shipbuilding is considered to be one of the oldest, most open and highly competitive markets in the world. Although shipbuilding industry has vast experiences in surviving peaks and slumps of economy, the current global crisis has hit shipbuilding industry more severely. Strong government support and political stability is required in this industry because of being highly capital intensive.
