Lloyd’s List Outlook 2019
The shipping industry is changing. Understanding economic growth and supply scenarios are an essential part of planning in this most dynamic and global of industries, but taken in isolation data can at best be misleading or worse entirely wrong.
Context and insight is key to an accurate outlook of the market forces shaping the maritime markets in 2019.
Complexities abound and exogenous events from trade tariffs and environmental regulation to digitalisation and the fourth industrial revolution are shifting markets, trade lanes and ultimately the decisions of every business invested in the global trade supply chain.
The Lloyd’s List Outlook is unique in its scope and the way it applies market-leading data and forecasting with editorial expertise in all the core markets, including insurance, regulation, law and finance.
Covering each of the core shipping sectors with an in-depth view of the competing dynamics at play, the Outlook offers an insider’s view of market expectations from Lloyd’s List’s global team of analysts and editorial staff and combines it with Lloyd’s List Intelligence’s fleet supply forecast data and trends analysis.
The result is an invaluable take on the key drivers and challenges across the maritime market and should be considered required reading for anyone looking for an authoritative view on near-term market trends that will define business opportunities and risk in 2019 and beyond.
