BMI View: We expect Bahrain to continue develop its role as a regional transhipment hub over the remainder of 2015 and into 2016, with strong container and tonnage throughput growth at Bahrian's premier maritime facility, the Khalifa bin Salman Port (KBSP), forecast to continue. However, growth rates are forecast to slow: from 18.2% to 11.6% for box throughput and from 13.2% to 3.3% for tonnage throughput, with the latter fall attributed to the ongoing slump in oil prices.

Over the medium term, Bahrain's shipping sector will continue to rely on transhipment as a source of growth. We forecast average growth rates of 11.7% for tonnage and 5.1% for container throughput at the port over the next five years, which is a decrease since the uptick after 2011. Slowing growth will be due to limited variety in terms of export goods. However, we do believe that KBSP has a chance to take on the role of a smaller inter-regional rather than international hub. We believe this is the more viable option as KBSP will inevitably lose out to larger, better-located ports.
