Do you want to exspand your network in Japan?

Bari-Ship exhibition and conference is held in the city of Imabari, home to the largest cluster of maritime-related industries in Japan.

The city’s importance in this sector cannot be overstated - shipbuilding companies headquartered in Imabari account for one-third of all commercial tonnage built in Japan each year, while its shipowners control one-third of Japan’s ocean-going fleet. Every two years, Japan’s shipping industry gathers in Imabari to see the latest developments in maritime technology and to talk business.

Since its launch in 2009 with 179 exhibitors, Bari-Ship has steadily expanded with each edition and last time featured 347 exhibitors from 18 countries.

If you want to meet senior leaders and key management from some of Japan’s most important shipbuilders and ship owners, make sure you join them at Bari-Ship 2019.

The market - Japan i no. 2 on the global order book

Japan figures as no. 2 on the global order book – both as shipowner nation and shipbuilding nation. Japanese order intake continues in a healthy vein through and after the crises. Much of it is for domestic or builder’s account with resales sought later. The successful formula of leasing to owners with purchase options in return for guaranteed charter employment still pays rich dividends.

First half 2018 more than 140 ships were ordered in Japan. This compares with performance in 1H2017 which yielded approx. 70 vessels. In a latest move of strengthening the competition towards the other Asian shipbuilding majors, Imabari reached agreement for the purchase of Minami-Nippon Shipbuilding. This will enhance Imabari’s capability to build chemical and products carriers in addition to its portfolio of car carriers, bulk carriers and containerships.
