New Study: Slovenia Freight Transport Report 2016

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

In 2016, Slovenia's freight sector will witness strong growth across the board as the improved economic outlook for the eurozone will stimulate demand for Slovenian exports and improved domestic consumption will drive a recovery in imports. Air and road freight will post th e strongest growth rates , at 7.2% and 5.6% respectively, as they will bene fit directly from rising import levels . Meanwhile, rail freight growth will remain cons trained by difficulties to find investors for infrastructure expansion, a trend which we believe will continue over the medium term.

We forecast the Slovenian economy to grow by 2.7% in 2016, up from 2.6% in 2015. Growth will come on the back of good external demand for Slovenia's exports, supported by rising domestic consumption. Over our forecast period, the expansion rate will slow down to a yearly average of 2.3%, a rate which we consider to be below potential as the long-standing issue of corporate leverage and poor health of the banking sector will continue to weigh on performance of the economy.

On the back of stronger than expected eurozone growth and the recovery in domestic consumption, we forecast Slovenia's imports and exports to grow by good 4.1% and 4.2% respectively over 2016. These trends are forecast to continue over the medium term, with Slovenia benefitting particularly from the improved growth outlook in the eurozone, which will drive increases in Slovenian trade volumes, as all of Slovenia's key trading partners (Germany, Italy, Austria, Croatia, France) are located in the region. Domestic consumption is forecast to follow an upward trend through to 2020, which will spur demand for imports, albeit imports will remain low from a historical perspective. Expansion projects at the Port of Koper provide major upside risks to our trade forecast.
