China Shipping Report

BMI View: China will continue to be the most important market for global container shipping in 2015 and over the years to come. Although there are some risks to the export picture, we expect positive growth across the country's many major box ports, which dominate the global top 10 . China's economic growth in the coming decade will be much slower than in the last, as the savings rate declines, the economic liberalisation process slows and population growth falls. These dynamics will result in real GDP growth averaging 6.0% over the next decade as opposed to the 10.1% average seen over the past decade. Private consumption will be a major outperformer, averaging growth of 8.1% and rising in importance as a share of GDP. This is good news for the country's container shipping sector, which should see a boost in volumes as a resul t.

  • 2015 real trade growth forecast at 7.0% - a very slight decrease from 2014's estimated 7.1%.
