According to the evaluation of major carriers at the Asian Shipowners Forum at the end of 2010, after 2011-2014, the market of large bulk carriers from 50,000 - 100,000DWT will strongly develop again due to supply and the demand for this type of ship has been gradually adjusted appropriately. In addition, the recovery and growth of the large bulk ship market, dry cargo ships in general are largely dependent on the economic development of major countries in the region such as China and India. In the coming years, the forecast of import and export goods, including raw materials for steel-making and mechanical manufacturing industries, China's shipbuilding industry is still very large and plays a driving force for shipping activities. Of the region and the world. As for container transport, in 2010, ship owners operating ships of over 2,000 TEU, operating on long-distance and inter-continental transport routes, improved business efficiency after a period of quiet. The development of container vessels with large capacity of 2,000 - 3,000 TEU operating between intra-Asia or India - Gulf routes, sizes of 4,000 - 6,000 TEU running directly between continents such as Asia to the US, Asia - Pacific ... is a reasonable orientation in the coming period. For oil transport activities, the market of crude oil and product oil transportation continues to face many difficulties due to the limited supply of crude oil while the supply of oil vessels, especially the size of 50,000-80,000 DWT, is far ahead of demand.
