BMI View: BMI forecasts a return to growth in Russia's shipping sector in 2016, after contractions in gross tonnage and severe losses in container shipping we estimate the country saw in 2015. The country's wider economy will also fare better in 2016 as imports see a robust return to positive growth while exports see a more modest gain. Infrastructure investments at the country's two largest ports of Novorossiysk and St Petersburg will expand capacity over the medium term, which bodes well for shipping volumes if the economy can stabilise on its current, tentative growth.

In 2015 Russian shipping volumes saw substantial contractions from mostly positive port estimates in 2014. At the port of Novorossiysk gross tonnage fell to negative 5.0% growth in 2015, while the port of St Petersburg saw its overall tonnage fall by 7.0%. These losses were outstripped by contractions in container volumes, as a depreciating rouble, slowdown in the Russian economy and a sharp dip in real private consumption took a toll. While real private consumption dropped by 8.4% y-o-y, box handling at the port of St Petersburg fell by 19.2% and at Novorossiysk even further by 30.5%.
