The Danish maritime sector, a critical industry for Denmark, includes ship owners, shipyards, suppliers, and designers of ships, maritime equipment, and various service providers. The Danish Government aims to establish Denmark as a global maritime hub by 2025, focusing on maritime autonomous technologies, digitalization, and expanded training for maritime professionals.

The sector, known as 'Blue Denmark,' directly or indirectly employs about 100,000 people, with 40,000 in the maritime industry and 60,000 in related fields like logistics, port operations, maritime law, finance, insurance, and other service roles. Danish shipowners play a significant role in global maritime trade, responsible for transporting approximately 10% of it, making Denmark the 5th largest nation globally in operated tonnage and the 2nd largest in the EU.

There is a window of opportunity for Finnish companies to seek new partnerships and business in the nearby Danish market.
