The global container fleet is on track to grow faster than expected demand and scrapping, according to an analysis of IHS Markit data. IHS Markit forecasts demolitions next year will come in at 351,065 TEU, which would result in net capacity growth in the global fleet of 7.1 percent if no deliveries from the 78 mega-ships over 10,000 TEU totaling 1.2 million TEU are delayed. The fleet would expand 5.6 percent if a quarter of deliveries are pushed back. https://www.joc.com/maritime-news/ships-shipbuilding/surge-mega-ship-capacity-hit-water-2018_20171110.html
