Scrap Ship Vessel Prices Update

Source: GMS Weekly – (This is only a summary) The anticipated drop in vessel prices finally materialized this week, with very few end buyers willing to talk numbers on new vessels as sentiments soured rapidly by the day. Although local fundamentals have not changed dramatically in the sub-continent, declines in Chinese and Turkish local steel prices were the driving forces behind the negative impact on competing / sub-continent markets.

It will take minimal changes in the budgets of Pakistan and Bangladesh and a continued stability in local steel plate prices, in order for confidence to return to local markets so that the recently reticent end buyers start to offer on available tonnage once again.

For week 20 of 2016, GMS demo rankings for the week are as below:
