According to Brown, the offshore vessel market is in the early stages of recovery as witnessed by the presence of increased activity and the growing demand for high specification vessels. Coming off from a market downturn that was experienced in the last five years, the market is now witnessing a key upturn - marked by the entry of new contract awards and increased utilization and pricing rates.
Brown shares, “We are currently on the way to recovering from this five-year downturn, the strongest one felt since the mid-80s. Despite being seen as a slow recovery, we can see that there are robust pockets of activity - opportunities that can help us drive in more growth to the industry.”
