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



[ClickPress, Mon Nov 30 2015] We forecast modest but nonetheless positive growth for Hong Kong's freight sector in 2016 and beyond. The current slowdown in the Chinese economy is affecting trade flows in Hong Kong, hurting the economy and consequently impacting all freight modes in the city state owing to its dependence on trade with China. Due to the developed nature of the freight sector in Hong Kong , and with a forecasted downturn in demand for goods over the medium term, we expect growth to be robust, but subdued for all freight modes.

GDP growth is forecasted at 3.5% for 2016 and to steadily increase over the medium term at an annual average of 3.5%. However, Hong Kong's economy is dependent on trade with China, and the latter's bleak outlook will have a negative impact on import and export growth for the city state over the medium term. The Chinese economy has lost further momentum at the end of 2015 and as such, we have downgraded our 2016 export and import growth forecast to 1.4% and 1.7% respectively.

However, Hong Kong does and will continue to have a massive role in the global supply chain as its 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 such, regardless of the slowdown in the Chinese economy, we will see firm trade growth in Hong Kong over the medium term.
