The country's shipbuilding output reached 27.98 million deadweight tonnes (dwt) in this period, up 16.9 percent year on year, according to the China Association of the National Shipbuilding Industry.

New orders in China's shipbuilding sector surged 86.5 percent from last year to total 52.31 million dwt, the association said.

The output accounts for 49 percent of the global total, and new orders amount to a 68.8 percent share, the data revealed.
