ABSTRACT: The hereby paper describes a brief history of fall and rise of Polish shipbuilding industry in the 21st century and confronts stereotypes about it using data available from variety of statistical sources as well as impressions regarding its current and future condition presented by different authors, including industry representatives. The main goal of the article is the confrontation of political statement with the statistical data and current sectoral trends within the shipbuilding industry in Poland. Firstly, we introduce a historical background in a scope of economic transition in Poland. Then, socio-political issues are addressed together with economic condition using statistical data. Lastly, the newest trends and perspectives are analyzed. Eventually, we come to conclusion that despite encountering great difficulties and arguments about its collapse from political actors, shipbuilding sector did manage to retain its strong position in Polish economy.
