Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

BMI View: BMI maintains its cautiously optimistic view on the US shipping sector. We believe 2015 willsee the country's major facilities consolidate the growth seen in 2014. Our overall view that the USeconomy will continue to accelerate remains firmly in place, and we forecast GDP growth of 2.7% in 2015,with growing consumer demand in particular providing a boost to container volumes.

Real GDP growth in the US will accelerate in the coming years, on the back of stronger privateconsumption and low borrowing costs. We forecast headline growth of 2.9% in 2015 and 2.6% in 2016, upfrom 2.4% in 2014. The main driver of this growth will be the private sector, with household consumptionbolstered by lower inflation, an improved labour market and low borrowing costs.
