Malaysia Freight Transport Report Q3 2015

BMI View: We expect road freight will continue to dominate freight in Malaysia, although rail will benefitfrom increasing inter-regional trade and improving infrastructure and see the strongest growth over themedium term. Meanwhile, the highly developed air freight sector, profiting from Malaysia's role as atranshipment hub, will see little growth going forwards, as it is already mature and well established.

Overall, the sector will benefit from the country's continued economic growth and lower oil prices, whichwill support domestic consumer demand and domestic production. However, we highlight that opportunitiesfor freight will be smaller than previously, as economic growth is starting to slow.

Between 2015 and 2019, we expect Malaysia's real GDP growth to average an annual 4.1%. Although thisis slower than average annual growth of 5.6% over the previous five years, we still view Malaysia'seconomy as a strong regional player with solid fundamentals. Continued economic growth is boostingconsumer demand for imported goods and fostering growth in the domestic manufacturing and industrialsectors, which is increasing Malaysia's export offerings. In addition, Malaysia benefits from its position as aregional transhipment hub and a large number of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), which means thatinvestors in Malaysia stand to benefit from cheaper trade costs due to the association with well-connectedglobal routes and bilateral trade ties. All of these factors support our positive outlook over the next fiveyears for Malaysia's various freight sectors. However, in spite of this comparatively positive outlook wehighlight two factors contributing to a less upbeat outlook over the medium term. In comparison to previousyears, economic growth is slowing, which will result in fewer opportunities for growth across all the freightmodes.
