Saudi Arabia Shipping Report Q1 2016

Saudi Arabia Shipping Report Q1 2016

BMI View: We forecast positive growth across Saudi Arabian ports in 2016, but the outlook over the yearsahead is not overly positive. The collapse in the oil price in the second half of 2014 will continue to feedthrough into every facet of the Saudi Arabian economy, leading to slowing capital expenditure andconsumer consumption. As such, we expect that growth in both gross tonnage volumes and box throughputwill, while remaining positive, decelerate over our medium-term forecast period to 2020.
