BMI Industry View

The Qatari shipping sector continues to be dominated by the export of the country's key commodity, natural gas, through the export terminal of Ras Laffan. Much of this is carried by national carrier Qatar Gas Transport (Nakilat). However, the country is looking to increase its container and dry bulk shipping presence as well, through the development of the New Doha Port, which is being developed with an eye towards capturing some lucrative transhipment trade. Further, Qatar is making its presence felt in foreign ports sectors and is investing in developing facilities in Egypt.
  • 2014 Port of Doha container throughput forecast to grow 3.5%, and to average 4.1% per annum to 2018 (including transferred operations to New Doha from 2015).
  • 2014 Port of Doha total tonnage throughput forecast to expand by 3.1% to 8.95mn tonnes, and to average 3.5% per annum over our forecast period (including transferred operations to New Doha from 2015).
  • 2013 total real trade growth forecast at -1.2%, and to average -2.4% over our forecast period as gas prices fall.
