Market Report, "Argentina Freight Transport Report Q1 2016", published

Argentina's freight sector will witness a turnaround in 2016 following negative growth in 2015 on the back of currency constraints and a dim econom ic picture. The likelihood of currency devaluation in 2016 and the installation of a business friendly president will make exports more competitive and increase the country's attractiveness as an investment destination.

Economic growth will accelerate in 2016 as fixed capital formation returns to growth on the back of investor optimism towards a new government. This will come even as the government enacts a devaluation of the peso. In addition, improving employment conditions will boost consumer purchasing power and lead to an uptick in household spending despite the inflationary effects of devaluation after a new government takes office in order to boost the competitiveness of Argentine exports. We forecast Argentine economic growth to accelerate to 2.5% in 2016, from our forecast of 0.7% in 2015.

Argentina will experience a turnaround in imports and exports in 2016 due to a boost in export competitiveness on the back of currency devaluation. This will coincide with a relaxation of import controls. In addition, domestic manufacturing firms increase imports of capital goods to support production. In 2015, manufacturers had limited access to imports of capital goods and intermediate products due to the overvaluation of the Argentine peso and lack of foreign exchange reserves, which led the Banco Central de la Republica Argentina to restrict imports. These import restrictions have also led to limits on consumers' ability to purchase foreign goods, notably automobiles.
