Jan. 7, 2009 - PRLog -- Despite economic recession, the fundamentals of the dry bulk industry remain attractive with demand for dry bulk commodities continue to be positive.

The primary driver for the dry bulk shipping industry continues to be sustained demand in East Asia led by strong demand for commodities in China and increasingly India.

China’s infrastructure building programs as per its 11th Five Year Plan will continue to drive demand for steel and that in turn will stimulate demand for iron ore and coal. Driven by infrastructure spending by the government, over time, China has become the epicenter of dry bulk demand.

With China’s import of 457.8 million tonnes of iron-ore, coal and grain in the year 2007 and its steel production increasing by 16.5% in the same year, the global dry bulk industry is expected to continue its growth momentum, albeit at a slower rate in the next few years.

Further with high growth of Indian economy and scarcity of its natural resources, India is likely to continue its demand for dry bulk commodities.

The demand for two commodities - coal and iron ore will drive the dry bulk industry in the near future. As the demand for steel is growing, especially in the Asian countries, iron ore is expected to see the highest growth among the dry bulk commodities. Further, coal is also likely to be much-in-demand commodity with new power plants being installed in the Asian countries.
