Israel Freight Transport Report Q1 2016

BMI View: We forecast positive growth across Israel's freight transport modes in 2016 and 2017. This isan improvement on recent years, when the sector has seen declining volumes on air planes and at thecountry's major ports, owing to sluggish economic growth - domestically and in major trade partnerEurope - and political instability on its borders with other states, and with Gaza. Political risk is always athreat in Israel and could derail our forecasts should further war break out with Gaza or other of Israel'sneighbours.

Israel will see a recovery in its total trade real growth in 2016. We forecast there will be 3.3% expansion,following an estimated 2.5% real contraction in total trade in 2015. This will be driven by a 5.0% boost inimports, while exports will undergo much slower growth at 1.5%. The disparity between the two willdiminish in 2017, when imports will expand 5.0% once more, but exports will see stronger growth at 3.5%.

Real growth in trade will remain positive over our medium-term forecast period, averaging 4.5% annuallyto 2020. This marks an improvement over the previous five years when trade growth averaged 2.1%annually due to the global economic crisis and political unrest.
