BMI View: The outlook for Bahrain's shipping sector as a whole is tied to that of its premier maritime facility, the Khalifa bin Salman port. In 2015, the port, and the industry as a whole, is set to post solid growth as it recovers from the contractions in volumes recorded in 2013. Container throughput at the facility is rising as a result of the massive hike in demand at Saudi Arabian ports.

This is a trend we expect to continue over the medium term, where Bahrain will continue to develop its role as a regional transhipment hub. In part, this expectation is down to our trade outlook for the country. With exports forecast to grow by a mere 1.9% in 2015, and to continue at a similar pace to 2024, we do not see any significant source of export growth until the planned additions to aluminium and refined oil production capacity come online towards the end of the decade. As a result, the shipping sector must rely on transhipment as an avenue for growth. The port of Mina Salman should also see tonnage volumes rise, on the back of demand from an extensive house-building programme under way in Bahrain.
