Although we expect to see total trade growth fall by 8.12% in 2015, Brazil ' s top export product, iron ore, is set to grow in 2015-2019, reaching 461mnt in 2019, providing momentum for the country ' s shipping in dustry as a result. Leading the way in year-on-year (y-o-y) box throughput terms will be the port of Itajai (14.7 %), while in the tonnage sphere, the port of Suape (18. 6 %).

Vale's shipping competitiveness will be supported by lower shipping costs for the iron ore industry as a whole. Fuel costs make up around 70.0% of total shipping costs and will decrease on the back of lower fuel prices, boosting shippers. In our view, lower fuel prices will limit shipping cost's importance in terms of overall costs, as lower fuel prices will decrease the spread between Australian and Brazilian shipping costs in absolute terms.

We see the current account deficit peaking in 2015, at 4.7% of GDP and it will gradually narrow in subsequent years on the back of a modestly brighter outlook for goods exports, due in part to rising oil exports, still-tepid goods imports, and a stabilisation of the services deficit.
