Book Signing

Book Signing with Mr. Jian Jun Wang
“Ship Market Trend”


Mr. Jian Jun Wang, author of the “Ship Market Trend” will be having a book signing at Capital Link’s 12th Annual International Shipping & Offshore Forum on Monday, March 12, 2018 in New York City.

This book was initiated at the time when M/V STELLAR DAISY sank in South Atlantic at the end of March 2017, taking with her the lives of 22 crew members. Mr. Wang would like to contribute all profits from the sales of this book to the Sailors' Society in memory of those who lost their lives at sea. The international maritime charity, which supports seafarers and their families across the world, celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2018.

The book can be purchase on the day of the Forum or Amazon online at:

We hope you will come and support this cause!



The book explains what factors influence the ship market, and how they are linked. Through five new terminologies – NDG (Net Demand Growth), T/F (Trade volume to fleet size) ratio, C/F (Contract to fleet size) ratio, D/F (Delivery to fleet size) ratio, S/F (Scrap to fleet size) ratio, this book tells how demand and supply affect the charter rates, how the charter rates influence the contact, new delivery, scrapping, new building prices and second-hand asset prices.


The book also discusses how the current market links with the market average.
