  • Abstract:
    Because of concerns about the viability and productivity of U.S. maritime industries as well as the future U.S. position in world trade, Congress requested Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) to prepare this assessment. Congress asked OTA to undertake an analysis and forecast of longterm trends in global seaborne trade and maritime technology in relation to the U.S. maritime industry. This assessment of Maritime Trade and Technology traces prevailing conditions and dominant trends that are important to the way the Federal Government assumes its responsibility for developing and implementing policy. The report contains analyses of the world outlook for trade, shipping, and shipbuilding. It identifies the extent of U. S. participation in these enterprises. It analyses the U.S. shipping and shipbuilding industries and identifies certain weak and strong attributes. It discusses trends in technology as well as in the policies of the United States and of our major trading partners. OTA has found that, although there are both healthy and troubled segments of the U.S. maritime industries, all sectors are becoming increasingly dependent on Federal policy decisions. And, with increasing competition in world trade as well as shipping services to carry that trade, intervention by all governments is more and more prevalent. OTA received valuable assistance in the preparation of this assessment from its advisory panel, which represented a cross section of U, S. maritime industry, labor, and user interests. The panel provided critiques and advice throughout the assessment and particularly during a detailed review of this final report. Other contributors to the assessment were contractors and individual consultants who provided valuable analyses of specific topics that were integrated into the overall report.
