It is expected to continue to grow as the world economy improves and new opportunities are created.

Iron ore constitutes for the major share in the industry followed by coal. Iron ore, coal and minor bulks have shown a tremendous growth in past years and expected to continue this growth in the coming years. On the other side, grain is expected to witness decline in trade in 2012. The total dry bulk fleet, which comprises four types of vessels: Capesize, Panamax, Handymax, and Handysize; is showing a steady growth on the back of increased new orders and reduced scrapping of dry bulk vessels.
