South Africa Shipping Report Q2 2015

BMI View: We forecast positive growth across South Africa's ports in 2015, following a decline at manyfacilities in 2014. High levels of unemployment and negative sentiment have been weighing on consumerdemand, but we expect that a fall in the price of oil will boost household spending in 2015. While demandwill still be far from robust, it will nevertheless not see a dip. In terms of gross tonnage volumes, coal willcontinue to be the primary driver of growth, although the slowdown in China does present some risk to this.
