26 Apr 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – is very happy to inform that new BMI RESEARCH reports on various countries’ freight transport & shipping industries are currently available in its online catalogue.

The Taiwanese economy is set to face ongoing obstacles as export orders and industrial output will likely continue to follow a contraction trajectory, which is poised to impact the domestic freight transport sector. Taiwan’s real GDP is forecast to grow in the offing. As regard to the modes, air freight is likely to grow slightly in 2016 before gaining momentum over the medium term, whilst road and rail alike are expected to register steady YoY gains through to 2020.

The Singaporean freight transport modes and shipping sector will likely witness positive growth throughout 2016, alongside healthy demand from Asia and recovering economies of Europe. Singapore’s port is set to remain the largest transhipment hub worldwide and benefit from enhanced trading relations. Air freight is set to be under negative pressure from the sluggish electronic manufacturing sector, however, it is underpinned by robust domestic demand and expanding e-commerce.

Poor demand for imported consumer electronics from China and a dropping Japanese yen are poised to press upon the South Korean air freight sector, while the volumes of maritime freight will be encouraged by enhancing macroeconomic fundamentals in the years to come. Moving forward, all freight modes in South Korea are forecast to recover from the near-term slowdown due to economic revival and key free trade agreements (FTAs) and disputes with regional partners. 

In Namibia, strong growth is anticipated in air freight volumes during 2016 and later on, driven by base effects, due to the extremely low tonnage presently being handled, along with the surging levels of income. The dominating transport mode in the Namibian freight mix throughout 2016 is poised to be air freight, which begins from a low base, whilst road and rail alike are expected to benefit from ongoing investments and quite healthy growth of the domestic economy.
