Share Article

The relatively young Marine Services industry in China has developed strongly along with China's booming marine economy. In the five years to 2012, industry revenue is expected to increase at an average annualized rate of 11.1% to total $238.2 million. Marine services firms will continue to thrive due to growing investment in marine engineering construction and marine pollution control programs in coming years, says IBISWorld.

The marine sector accounts for about 10% of the entire Chinese economy. As its importance grows, so too will the Marine Services industry.

Increasing investment in pollution control projects by China's central and local governments has led to strong growth for the Marine Services industry in China. Over the five years through 2012, industry revenue has been increasing at an average annualized rate of 11.1% to total $238.2 million. China’s marine economy accounts for about 10.0% of the economy as a whole in China. Its importance is expected to grow in the future, which will bring more businesses to the industry.

There are about 300 enterprises operating in this industry, most of them with annual revenue of less than $750,000. The industry’s top players include Guangzhou Marine Geological Survey, Shanye Marine Services, and Yantai Shunda Ocean Engineering Service. The majority of marine services firms have a limited business scope and very few have developed dominant advantages in the national market. Foreign investment in the industry is currently low, however, as China's marine economy becomes more globalized, IBISWorld anticipates that more large foreign players will enter the industry. The foreign presence in this industry is mainly in the form of joint ventures that combine the local backgrounds of domestic firms with the technological strength of foreign investors.

Growing investment in marine engineering construction and marine pollution control programs will drive industry growth, IBISWorld anticipates. Greater investment into the Marine Services industry is also expected from governments, enterprises and research institutes into marine services research and development.
