Market Report, "Mexico Freight Transport Report Q4 2015", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

Economic growth in Mexico will accelerate in 2015, driven by stronger private consumption, an uptick in fixed investment and robust US demand for the country's manufactured goods exports. This will drive up demand across all freight modes, with 6.4% growth in rail freight tonna ge, 3.2% growth in road freight and 3.8% growth in airfreight over 2015.

The Mexican economy will improve significantly in 2015, following sluggish growth in the last couple of years. We forecast real GDP growth of 3.5% in 2015, up from projected 2.1% in 2014 and 1.4% in 2013. This will boost demand for imported goods, while a similarly positive outlook for the US will drive up the volume of Mexican exports transported to the US. These complementary trends offer significant advantages for the road and rail freight sectors in particular, though we also expect to see increased imports of consumer electronics and pharmaceuticals over the medium term supporting airfreight tonnage growth.

A major upside risk for operators in the Mexican freight transport sector is presented by the growing trend of 'nearshoring', the practice of moving production centres closer to consumer markets. Increasing oil prices, rising wages and weather disruption to supply chains has caused companies to look away from Asia and towards Mexico when considering where to base their production centres. Advantages to be gained from nearshoring in Mexico are lower freight costs, faster time-to-market rates and lower inventory costs. This trend should be of huge benefit to Mexican freight transport operators, as more production centres in the country means more volumes to transport to the US consumer markets.
