"Israel Freight Transport Report Q1 2016" now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Dec 23 2015

We forecast positive growth across Israel's freight transport modes in 2016 and 2017 . This is an improvement on recent years, when the sector has seen declining volumes on air planes and at the country's major ports, owing to sluggish economic growth - domestically and in major trade partner Europe - and political instability on its borders with other states, and with Gaza . Political ri sk is always a threat in Israel and could derail our forecasts should further war break out with Gaza or other of Israel's neighbours .

Israel will see a recovery in its total trade real growth in 2016. We forecast there will be 3.3% expansion, following an estimated 2.5% real contraction in total trade in 2015. This will be driven by a 5.0% boost in imports, while exports will undergo much slower growth at 1.5%. The disparity between the two will diminish in 2017, when imports will expand 5.0% once more, but exports will see stronger growth at 3.5%. Real growth in trade will remain positive over our medium-term forecast period, averaging 4.5% annually to 2020. This marks an improvement over the previous five years when trade growth averaged 2.1% annually due to the global economic crisis and political unrest.

We forecast road haulage volumes in Israel will expand by 3.3% in 2016, marking an acceleration on 2015's estimated growth of 0.1%. Our forecasts are predicated primarily on the macroeconomic outlook for Israel in 2016, where we see real GDP growth picking up to 3.4% following an estimated 2.1% in 2015. Our 2015 estimate was a downward revision from our previous outlook of 2.6% in 2015, owing to ongoing violence in the country. Given its erratic nature, we do not believe that the current wave of violence in Israel will subside before end-2015, impacting private consumption in Q415 and headline growth for 2015.
