Peru Freight Transport Report Q1 2016 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Dec 13 2015

Peru's freight sector will continue to have mixed growth rates in 2016, with a contraction in rail freight volumes of 2.48%, slowing growth in road freight at 1.05%, and the strongest growth in air freight at 2.75%. Rail freight has been affected by low exports of copper and generally subdued metals prices, while road freight growth will improve on 2015 estimates due to moderate growth in trade activity and construction sector growth. Rising private consumption leading to stronger demand for consumer electronics will benefit the air freight sector the most, hence the strongest growth forecast for this transport mode.

The economy in Peru is steadily improving and we forecast GDP growth at 3.8% for 2016, up from 2.2% estimated for 2015. August and September 2015 have however seen below expectations growth rates in GDP. The moderate growth is largely due to a slowdown in Peru's mining fuelled economy as mineral prices have been weaker. Rising copper production from new mines has on the other hand helped underpin official forecasts for a recovery, and economic growth has increased mainly because of mining. 2015 has seen a recovery in fishing, manufacturing and mining sectors, which will help the economy in the coming year and over the medium term. Unemployment has also been at its lowest of the year in the last two months. Going forward, Chinese investments in Peru will benefit the economy as the country seeks to accelerate their developments particularly through building major infrastructure projects, positively impacting the freight sector.
