One of the most relevant industrial sectors worldwide is the naval sector, being involved in multiple commercial activities. According to data from UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development) , it is important to have a large enough naval fleet to meet maritime needs. This includes the shipbuilding sector, which is responsible for the manufacture and repair of the different types of ships and structures in order to respond to the commercial activities that make up this industry.
