Iran Freight Transport Report Q2 2015

Iran Freight Transport Report Q2 2015

BMI View: The outlook for the Iranian freight transport sector has changed somewhat since our lastquarterly update - at least in the short term. The fall in global oil prices through the end of 2014 has causedus to revisit many of our macroeconomic assumptions for net oil exporters, Iran included, and resulted in adowngrade to many of our previous forecasts. The long-term picture is still fairly positive - Iran has a largeand growing population, and there is considerable investment being made into all freight modes - but thechallenges to short-term growth are salient. Nevertheless, we forecast a positive expansion in volumesthrough rail, air and ports in 2015 and over the medium term.
