About Shippax MarketAs from 2006, the editorial part of the annual publication Shippax Market (formerly known as STATISTICS & Outlook) is totally revamped. It now consists of an extensive market report with outlook for the four segments FERRIES - CRUISE - RORO - HISPEED. Our graphs with facts & figures further emphasise the development and gives an impression of the entire market as an "executive summary" reading.
Published each year in June, Shippax Market is the annual complete source of gathered statistics from all the major ferry and cruise operators. Not only do we compile traffic figures from all routes and companies, we also compare major ports and publish totals of the trade. Shippax Market presents all available traffic statistics compiled not only on a route by route basis, but also summarised by regions, finally arriving at figures on a world-wide basis. It bears proof of more than 2 billion ferry passengers - each year! Not to mention some 32 million trailers.
No other book lists such a complete record of passengers, fleets, and deployment for each individual cruise company! Again, we arrive at a total, world-wide figure that no other organisation can provide!
In short - the book is designed in a way so that whoever receives a copy - be it local politicians or a shipping executive - will understand both the importance of the industry and the importance for it to remain strong and continuously develop.
