Pakistan Shipping Report

BMI View: We expect growth in both major container ports of Pakistan ( the port s of Karachi and Q asim), to be driven by favourable market conditions. Pakistan is enjoying steady economic growth due to lower oil prices and the successful implementation of reform programs. The country also shows an increased focus on improving relations and shipping connectivity with trading partners that further boosts trade volumes. Therefore in 2015 and over the medium term through to 2019, the growing economy and improved trading relations will increase throughput capacity volumes at both Pakistani ports.

Good Port Growth Expected

The two major container ports of Pakistan, of Karachi and Qasim, will both record their highest throughput capacity to date this year. Year on year (y-o-y) container throughput capacity growth rates will be 4.14% and 7.18% for port of Karachi and Qasim respectively. Combined capacity will reach 2.57mn twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), compared to 2.45mn in 2014. The start up of a re-gasification unit at the port of Qasim and a new direct service between the port of Karachi and the Khalifa port terminal have increased port activities in 2015.

We forecast real GDP growth rates to be higher than 4% between 2015 and 2019. Pakistan's economic growth is a prime driver of increasing throughput capacity volumes in the country's port. Being an economy that heavily relies on oil imports, it has benefited from lower oil prices that stimulate economic growth. Despite a degree of political turmoil the economy has remained firm. Pakistan is focusing on taking advantage of its favourable location for shipping trade and is developing infrastructure and relations that will support growth in port activity. Y-o-y growth rates will remain positive to 2019 and average 6.04% between the two ports. In 2019 the ports will handle a combined total of 3.23mn TEUs. Port infrastructure developments, stronger trading relations and economic growth will drive the...
