MBA (Port & Shipping Management) for working professionals
Operating in a highly globalized and competitive business environment, the marine industry worldwide
is intricately linked with global economy and trade. Over the years, maritime transport has emerged
as a critical contributor to a country’s competitive position in global trade. Consequently, for many
countries with a fairly extensive coastline, maritime infrastructure development has attracted significant
investments, which, in turn, have positively influenced the pace, structure and development of such
India has an extensive coastline of around 7,500 km. The country’s maritime industry encompasses ports
(both major and non-major), shipping (overseas and coastal), inland water transport (IWT) and aids to
navigation and manpower both on board and ashore. Around 95% of India’s external merchandize trade
by volume, and 70% by value, is transported through maritime transport.
The marine transport sector contributes more than 0.2% to India’s GDP at constant prices. The transport
sector’s contribution to the country’s GDP has been rising over the past few years, mainly due to growing
economic activity in India. The increasing trend of western countries transitioning their manufacturing
functions to low-cost countries, and the likely prospect of India emerging as a manufacturing outsourcing
hub, are expected to contribute to the growth of the country’s marine industry.
