Romania Shipping Report

Romania's main maritime facility, the port of Constantza, once again will see steady growth in 2015, according to BMI forecasts, both in terms of total tonnage and container throughput, in line with the country's continued economic recovery and despite tepid eurozone demand limiting exports to the region.

We expect, however, that low inflation, cheap borrowing costs and improving labour market conditions will conspire to drive a recovery in private consumption, which will play an increasingly large role driving growth and supporting freight volumes at the country's ports.

We forecast further growth at the port of Constantza and the recovery of its pre-downturn total throughput volumes over the medium term. Container throughput, however, is projected to remain below 2007-2008 level.

Headline Industry Data

  • 2015 port of Constantza tonnage throughput forecast to grow 4%, over the medium term we project a 21% increase.

  • 2015 port of Constantza container throughput forecast to grow 4%, over the medium term we project a 20% increase.

  • 2015 total trade growth forecast at 5.75%.

ADM was previously a partner in both North Star and Minmetal, owning some 45% of the Constantza assets.

Risks t o Outlook

The potential for growth at the country's ports stems from BMI's positive outlook on the Romanian economy. Container throughput will be driven by the country's consumers, with consumer demand in Romania forecast to strengthen. The country's real GDP is...
