United Arab Emirates Freight Transport Report Q1 2016

United Arab Emirates Freight Transport Report Q1 2016

BMI View: We expect continued robust growth across the UAE's freight modes in the near term and overour medium-term forecast period to 2020. Massive investment into freight transport infrastructure - notleast the development of the UAE's nascent rail network - will ensure that growth in freight volumescontinues far beyond our forecast period. This will be driven not only by domestic demand, but will also bemassively informed by the UAE's becoming one of the world's foremost global transhipment hubs.

Looking at the UAE's domestic trade growth prospects, we are bullish in both real and nominal terms.

Looking first at real growth, we forecast an expansion of 5.1% in total trade in 2016, followed by a further4.9% in 2017. Imports will outpace exports, at 6.2% to 4.0% in 2016 and 6.0% to 3.7% in 2017. Thisreflects the shaky outlook for the oil sector, and the determination by the government to keep up spending,and the subsequent buoyant outlook for consumer spending. Real total trade growth to 2020 will average4.0% annually.
