State Support Sends Shipyards’ Sales Soaring

Exports by shipyards in three countries tracked by Panjiva climbed 87% on a year earlier in July to reach more than $8.5 billion. That was the fifth straight month of growth, and brings the annualized total back to levels seen in November. It is not necessarily a sign of sustainable growth though. South Korea led with a 3x expansion in exports. That’s a result of rising orders supported by state finance. Chinese exports slumped 29% and new orders have continued to slide, but the government now appears to be stepping in to support CSIC. Japanese exports look healthier, having now risen by 25% in the past quarter.

LNG Shipping Growth Returns as Qatar Boosts Sales in China

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipping likely expanded in June globally. Panjiva analysis of three countries imports grew 51% to $5.2 billion, or by 24% when adjusting for price rises. Japan led the way, though on a quarterly basis Chinese purchases climbed 67%. The growth likely continued in July, with Japanese imports increasing 36%. Qatar has begun to capture a larger share of Chinese imports, climbing 168% on a year earlier in the second quarter. It could go further if Australian LNG export restrictions are put in place next winter.

Surplus Cloud Hangs Over Japanese Export Growth Run

Japanese export growth continued for an eight month in July at 13%, but still lagged the 17% surge in imports. Chemicals led the expansion at 15%, while materials – including steel – rose by just 9%. Japanese managers’ expectations are at multi-year highs, suggesting more growth is coming. The challenge is more from a political perspective. Japan’s trade surplus vs. the U.S. increased 10% to $5.9 billion. That’s the highest since December and may cast a pall over bilateral talks during the rest of this year.

Air Wars Widen as Brazil Takes Canada to WTO, Matches U.S. Case

Brazil will apply to the WTO for a dispute settlement panel for its complaint about Canadian tax support for Bombardier’s C-Series passenger jet. This has a direct parallel in to a U.S. trade investigation that was recently postponed, and will likely get tied up with NAFTA negotiations. Competition in the industry remains fierce. Panjiva analysis shows exports by the three countries fell 15% on a year earlier in the past 12 months. The U.S. has been hit hardest with a 29% drop, followed by Canada with a 14% slide and Brazil being barely changed with a 3% decline.
