Mapping the UK’s small commercial marine industry
British Marine’s project to map the UK’s small commercial marine industry has entered the next important stage in its work in the run up to Seawork International 2018.
It has launched a short but important survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SmallCommercialMarineSurvey2018) which aims to help it map the sector, understand the companies operating in it and where the growth opportunities lie going forward.
“The aim of this work is to provide more data to help the industry engage with stakeholders, like the UK Government, but also to better understand the opportunities and risks facing the sector. Something we know the sector is crying out for,” said Andrew Harries, senior external relations & communications executive, British Marine.
At Seawork 2017, British Marine and its group association, Commercial Marine, published its preliminary data on the UK's small commercial marine industry.
It’s now calling on all commercial marine members to both complete the survey and also encourage companies in their supply chain to complete it too. As an incentive, British Marine is offering the chance to win £100 worth of Amazon vouchers.
The small commercial marine sector in the UK supports nearly 2,000 employees and generating revenues of approximately £182m. However, this is a very conservative estimate of the value of the market.
The industry currently has limited market data to inform businesses operating in, or looking to expand into, the small commercial sector, hence the need for more research.
Any questions on the survey should be submitted to Alastair Wilson at email@example.com.
British Marine will be releasing the next set of results and findings from the survey at Seawork International 2018 on Stand PY93.
