BMI Industry View

Oman continues to develop into a regional powerhouse for the shipping and transhipment of dry bulk goods such as iron ore. To this end a new port is being constructed at Duqm and new cargo terminals at Salalah and Sohar. The new Duqm port will also boast a new oil refinery. Further port developments include the announcement that all cargo operations are to be moved from the Muscat port of Sultan Qaboos to Sohar by the end of 2014. All of this is aided by Oman's position on the Arabian Sea, outside the Persian Gulf, enabling it to offer shorter shipping lines than ports within the congested body of water. On the macroeconomic side, growth in the Omani ports sector will be supported by an expanding GDP and rising private consumption.

Headline Industry Data
  • 2014 container throughput at Salalah forecast to return to growth of 3.2%, following an estimated 2013 decline of 5.0%. Growth to 2018 will average 6.1%.
  • 2014 total tonnage throughput at Sohar forecast to reach 58.23mn tonnes - an expansion of 15.0%. Growth will spike in 2015 as commercial operations are transferred from the Port of Sultan Qaboos at Muscat.
  • 2014 Oman total trade real forecast at 5.3%, and to average 1.6% per annum to 2018.
