Global shipbuilding orders in the third quarter of 2011 dropped more than 50% compared to Q2 of this year because of financial constraint in Europe, according to a report by Clarkson.

The report revealed global ship orders in the third quarter fell to five million compensated gross tons (CGTs).

During Q1 of this year ship orders stood at 8.3 million CGTs, rising to 10.4 million CGTs in Q2, which plummeted due to oversupply in ship market, shrinking shipping finance, debt problems in European countries and delayed economic recovery.
