BMI View: We anticipate steady growth across Kuwait's freight modes and main ports in 2016 as well

as throughout the medium term. The country's economy faces challenges from sustained low oil prices but

this has not discouraged the government from initiating major infrastructure projects to support business,

trade and economic diversification. Our outlook is also based on the expectation that GDP rates will

steadily improve throughout the course of the forecast period in line with oil prices, benefiting trade

volumes. Positive growth in domestic demand and private consumption has driven the increase in air

freight, with relatively inelastic demand for pharmaceuticals and premium goods also working in favour of

this mode. Road remains the dominant mode in the absence of a rail network, while oil exports and imports

of manufactured goods and raw materials boost port throughput volumes.

Key Updates And Forecasts

? UPS' express freight service expansion by eight additional destinations includes Kuwait, promoting air

freight transports.

? Air freight will benefit from a new terminal to be built at Kuwait International Airport as part of the

Kuwait Development Plan 2015-2020 aiming to improve transport and logistics infrastructure and

establish Kuwait as a regional trade centre.

? Shuwaikh Port will be linked to Doha expressway by the end of the Sheikh Jabel causeway project which

as announced is on schedule. Both port activities and road freight will be boosted from the connection.

? The government in this year initiated several key projects in the power, transportation and health sectors

which sustain spending and imports of materials such as ores and metals.

? We forecast road freight to increase 2.3% in 2016 to 13.4mn tonnes and air freight by 2.6% to 194,380

while growth for the 2016-2020 period will average 2.2% and 2.7% respectively.

? We expect traffic at Kuwait's largest container port, Shuwaikh, to increase by 3.9% to 902,129 twentyfoot

equivalent units (TEUs) in 2016. Tonnage throughput at Port of Shuaiba will increase 9.2% to

31.8mn tonnes.

? Total trade real growth in 2016 is projected at 2.8% and to average 2.6% over the medium term. Imports

growth this year will be 4.0% compared to a 1.5% rise in exports.

? Main trade partners will be South Korea, India, Japan, China and the US.

    BMI View: While we are not overly optimistic about Australia's freight industry over the medium term, we do envisage positive growth to remain the order of the day across the various modes. The outperformer in the freight mix will be rail in 2017, although road will see larger gains than rail as of 2019 as weakening demand for Australia's minerals - especially from key trade partner China - will stymie growth in the rail freight sphere over the medium term. Domestically, ......

    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 48
    BMI View: Belgium's strategic location as a crucial geographic hub linking Europe's largest economic will continue to drive growth. Air freight will be the fastest growing mode in 2016 although total volume carried by air remains minor compared to road and rail.

  • Canada Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 56
    BMI View: We anticipate positive growth rates for Canada's freight modes and sea ports in 2017 although slow economy expansion will stall growth to some extent. Road will record the highest increase in tonnage carried, just ahead of rail with road also the dominant mode, facilitating domestic freight transports and US trade. In 2016 we saw some ports experiencing a contraction in throughput due to weaker Chinese demand however we forecast in 2017 that both tonnage and con......
  • Chile Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q1 2017

    BMI View: The outlook for Chilean trade is fairly negative over the coming years, despite our expectation that real GDP growth will strengthen in 2017. The troubled copper mining sector and a slowing domestic construction sector will result in slower demand for Chilean exports and imports, and this will weigh on the freight transport sector in the country. Key Figures And Forecasts The road haulage sector will underperform over the coming years, outpaced by road and......
  • Egypt Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q1 2017
    Published: 23-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 54
    BMI View: We anticipate a robust expansion in total trade in Egypt in 2017, in real terms at least. However, there will be a second consecutive year of declines in the nominal value of trade. This will be driven in part by an anticipated slowdown in imports growth, following what we believe is an inevitable devaluation of the pound before the end of 2016. Latest Forecasts and Updates ? Despite a mixed outlook for consumer demand in 2017, we expect that project cargo......

    BMI View: Hungary will enjoy a positive expansion in real and nominal trade volumes in 2017 as well as over the course of our forecast period. Strong growth in household spending power will support increased imports of containerised consumer goods. However, in terms of exports, we note salient risks, given that a number of Hungary's major regional trade partners are set to endure uncertainty and weaker real GDP growth in the wake of the UK's decision to leave the EU (Brex......
