Greek ship-owners top the international commercial marine fleet, having acquired 164 ships in 2009 in the amount of $3.16 billion US.

Chinese companies are in the second place, by investing $2.79 billion US in vessel acquisitions.

Turkish and Norwegian ship-owners followed, by purchasing various types of ships, for a total of $650 and $520 million US, respectively.

The dominant trend in the commercial maritime industry in 2009 was a sharp decline in vessels value - by almost 50% - thus, giving the opportunity of maritime companies with enough cash liquidity to buy series of ships.
