    Maritime transport is the most important the world's dominant commercial mode of transport . According to Arte in 2015, 80% of the volume of global freight transport was done by boat, and 70% in value. He represented 10.7 billion tonnes of freight in 2017. According to the the World Trade Organization the value of world merchandise trade was $17.7 trillion in 2017, bringing the value of world merchandise trade to $17.7 trillion in 2017 value of goods transported by sea to 12.4 trillion dollars .

    An article des Echos reports a record deliveries of maritime and inland waterway cruise ships in 2017 26 for a total investment of $6.8 billion. 13 of its vessels are used for maritime transport. According to the same article, cruises were expected to carry 25.7 million passengers in 2017 an increase of more than 60% in 10 years (15.8 million in 2007).
