The 2015 report follows the methodology utilised for previous BIMCO and ICS reports, however some changes have been effected to take into account feedback from the 2010 report and to ensure that it remains a comprehensive source of information on maritime manpower. The 2015 report aims to provide an estimate of: The balance between the global supply of qualified and competent seafarers available for service on the ships trading internationally, and the industry's demand for seafarers to operate the world merchant fleet; Details about the composition of the seafarers that operate the world merchant fleet, including their nationalities, rank/role, age profiles and gender; and The anticipated future growth of the world merchant fleet over the next ten years and its possible impacts on the global manpower supply and demand situation.

The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) is the principal international trade association for the shipping industry, representing shipowners and operators in all sectors and trades.

ICS membership comprises national shipowners' associations in Asia, Europe and the Americas whose member shipping companies operate over 80% of the world's merchant tonnage.

Established in 1921, ICS is concerned with all technical, legal, employment affairs and policy issues that may affect international shipping.

ICS represents shipowners with the various intergovernmental regulatory bodies that impact on shipping, including the
International Maritime Organization

ICS also develops best practices and guidance, including a wide range of
publications and free resources that are used by ship operators globally.
