Bahrain Freight Transport Report 2016 - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Nov 08 2015

Bahrain will continue to follow an ambitious infrastructure investment plan in order to increase capacity within its key freight sectors. This falls in line with the government's strategic vision for 2030, which will aim to promote trade in the region and stimulate economic growth. The measures will contribute to steady growth across its freight modes over the medium term to 2020 , with the road transport sector in particular benefitting from infrastructure investment and industry diversification in the country.

Real growth in GDP looks set to slow marginally in 2016, though oil prices are starting to recover slightly from recent drops. Healthy growth in the non-oil sector will have a positive impact on freight transport as demand from other industries will boost growth. Bahrain's political situation and its impact on economic stability will be under scrutiny in 2016 as the government continues to forge a path of economic recovery through investment and trade reforms.

Import and export growth in Bahrain will be steady in 2016. Trade in iron and steel will see particularly strong growth rates of almost 8% next year. Importantly, economic cooperation and financial support across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) should strengthen trade prospects as markets recover from the disruption caused by recent political unrest.

Both road and air transport will increase their capacity between 2016 and 2020 thanks to infrastructure investment as well as stable trade growth over the next five years. Road transport will fare particularly well, benefitting from low oil prices and investment, both home-grown and from neighbouring countries. Plans under discussion for the incorporation of Bahrain into a Gulf railway system will add to the country's freight mix, while the air freight industry's growth trajectory will be dependent on economic growth in the region, particularly in sectors such as high tech and pharmaceuticals.
