"Spain Freight Transport Report 2016" Published

Spain's freight transport sector will experience modest growth in the coming years as it continues to recover from the devastating impact of the recent recession. Following years of contraction across freight modes, there were signs of recovery in 2014 and into 2015, and we expect volumes to continue on this upward trend in 2016. We caution , however , that the freight sector remains overly reliant on export demand, particularly from Spain's main eurozone partners, many of which are undergoing weak growth.

Economic growth in Spain will continue to outpace many regional peers in 2016, with real GDP set to increase by 2.4% from 2.7% in 2015. Improving consumer spending has underpinned Spain's improved economic growth prospects. While this partially reflects a drop in unemployment, growing consumer confidence has been mainly driven by cyclical factors. Real wage growth has only increased due to the collapse in global oil prices, which has dragged Spain into deflation, boosted real incomes and thus consumers' propensity to spend.

Steady, if unspectacular, manufacturing output and consumer demand in the coming years will drive demand for road freight services in Spain. We expect growth of 2.5% in 2016, up from 2.0% in 2015, and expect increases for the remainder of the medium term. The threat of labour disputes on the rail network can only benefit road freight carriers in the next year. From 2016-2019, we forecast annual average growth of 3.7% in road freight volumes, to reach just over 1.5bn tonnes in 2019. Over the medium term, we believe growth in the road freight sector will be supported by the expansion of the automotive a sector and sustained recovery in the eurozone - the primary market for Spanish products.
