New Transportation research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research

[ClickPress, Tue Sep 22 2015] We forecast positive growth across Hong Kong's freight sector in 2015 - namely, in air freigh t volumes, road haulage volumes and in box and gross tonnage throughput through the port of Hong Kong. The special administrative region (SAR) discontinued rail freight operations in 2011, and so all of its landside freight volumes are now transported by road. That said, while growth will be positive, benefitting from an improved macroeconomic domestically, and globally, it will be far from spectacular. The slowdown in China, and the already high level of development of the freight transport sector in Hong Kong, means that gains will be incremental. This is nevertheless an improvement on the declines experienced in recent years.

Hong Kong's size - 1,104 square kilometres (sq km) - and small population of 7.3mn belies the massive role it plays in the global supply chain. Hong Kong's port and airport have developed into key Asian transhipment points; the airport is the largest in the world in terms of cargo handled, while its port is the fourth-largest container facility. As a result of this global transhipment role, Hong Kong's freight transport volumes - for air freight especially - are hugely informed by the global macroeconomic outlook. This was evidenced by declines in volumes at the country's major transhipment facilities when the global economic crisis shook the world in 2009, and again in 2011 when Hong Kong International saw volumes decline as the eurozone debt crisis reached its peak. In this regard, the outlook for Hong Kong's trade in 2015 is fairly bright. Developed states aggregate real GDP growth of 2.1% in both 2015 and 2016 will represent a slow, steady improvement from sub-2.0% outturns in the previous four years.
