Irish Economy: Manufacturing improves - Irish manufacturing firms saw an improvement in overall business conditions in August as new orders grew at the fastest pace in 14 months, according toInvestec's monthly Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI). The PMI posted a 52 headline figure for August, up from 51 the months before. Anything over 50 indicates growth.

Container Market: Fleet growth continues - The size of the global containership fleet has exceeded the 17m TEU mark for the first time as carriers continue to order larger ships to cut operating costs, figures from Alphaliner showed last week. During the first seven months of the year, a total of 147 ships representing 938,500 TEU were delivered. Total deliveries are expected to exceed1.5m TEU in 2013.

Tanker Market: Chemical optimism - The chemical tanker industry is starting to turn the corner after years in the doldrums, according to Lloyd's List. The global trade in chemicals is heavily dependent on the state of the global manufacturing industry. When manufacturing slows, as has been the case in the last few year, the trade in chemicals suffers, which hits the chemical tanker segment.

#Ports&Shipping –The latest IMDO Weekly Shipping Market Review includes the following stories as detailed below.

Irish Economy: Manufacturing prices rise in July - Irish manufacturing prices rose by 0.7% in July, although they remained 0.2% lower than a year ago. Factory gate prices –which measure the price of goods charged for by manufacturers, excluding transport costs –fell by 0.2% in the 12 months to July. The most significant price rises in July were dairy products (up 2.9%) and computer, electronic and optical products which were up 1.6%.

Container Market: Carriers are becoming 'asset lighter' - Ocean carriers are increasingly resorting to leasing/chartering to acquire vessels and container equipment, indicating the carriers are becoming significantly 'asset lighter', according to data released by Drewy. Focusing on the period from the middle of 2011 until July of this year, over 64% of all vessel capacity ordered has been placed by tramp vessel operators, and the proportion since the middle of 2012 is an even higher 65%.

Bulker Market: Grain uplift may lift Panamaxes - The Panamax segment may be about to experience a turnaround in fortunes as an uplift in exports of Soybeans and other seasonal commodities may support additional demand, according to Tradewinds. Researchers at ICAP Shipping believe there is a chance the tides could turn despite the chronic glut in global fleet capacity. In a briefing, the analysts acknowledged that US grain, soybean and soybean export volumes have hit record lows but said the trend could change this autumn.
