From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Feb 17 2015

Ongoing improvement in Egypt's political situation, with the election of President Sisi having brought in a level of stability not seen since 2011, will see the Egyptian freight transport sector enjoy continued expansion in 2015. While this will not be spectacular, we expect positive growth in volumes across all freight modes, supported by an improving consumer outlook, a recovery in the tourism sector, and increased construction. Crucially, the outlook is not only brighter for the near term, with significant investment into tran sport infrastructure ensuring continued growth over future years.

Key Industry Trends

An Improving Economic Outlook Will Boost Activity: We retain our expectation for real GDP growth of 3.0% in FY2015 and 3.8% in FY2016 from an estimated 2.25 in FY2014. Our forecasts are a notable uptick compared with previous years, and this will support growth on the country's freight transport network. Fixed investment in particular is expected to drive economic growth over the next two years, and bulk and project cargos needed for key infrastructure projects will support volume growth through Egypt's ports and on its road and rail networks. The recovering tourism sector will boost volumes of containers and air freight, both through goods needed to serve visitors' needs, but also as Egyptians' spending power increases.
