Netherlands Freight Transport Report Q4 2015 - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Sep 28 2015

Over 2015, the Netherland's freight industry will post good growth, with rail freight seeing the strongest growth . In particular rail and road freight will benefit from rising domestic consumption, growth in Germany's economy and strong fuel demand across Europe. Over the medium term, we forecast rail to increase its market share as the sector will benefit the most from investments into European transport infrastructure and the removal of the sugar production quota in 2017. Air freight will post good growth but will continue to play a negligible role in the freight mix over our forecast period up to 2019.

Total trade in real terms is forecast to grow by 1.00% in 2015, a figure we see increasing over the medium term. Import growth will outperform growth in exports in 2015 and up to 2019, as household consumption in the Netherlands has come to life and will continue driving economic growth in the years to come. The economic recovery in the eurozone and strong demand from Germany will provide a spur to exports.

For 2015, we forecast road freight to grow by strong 2.2%, as the sector benefits from increasing domestic consumption. A cyclical growth upswing is under way in the Netherlands reflected in strong 1.6% real GDP growth with private consumption contributing 0.3pp to overall growth. Strong private consumption over the medium term and investments into connectivity through the TEN-T infrastructure project will ensure average annual gains of 2.88% through to 2019. Congestion issues and the fact that the sector is pretty much at saturation constrain road sector growth.
