China On The Rise Within The Marine Industry

With the ever expanding export business plus the vast increases in imported goods, Chinese ship builders, suppliers and other related supporting businesses continue to both generate and demand resources.

And not only is the emphasis on the growing Chinese commercial marine industry, but the market for luxury yachts in China is growing quickly. With reports that there are roughly 875,000 millionaires in China, the international yachting industry is targeting China as the wave of the future.

Recent market survey show plenty of demand for luxury items, including larger yachts. Newly minted millionaires are seeking ways to spend their money. Demand for private yachts has gained traction in China over the past two years.
