Abstract:

BMI View: We expect positive growth across the Kuwaiti freight transport sector in ----, as the country recovers from the nominal fall in trade in ---- - which was driven by a fall in oil prices which didn t affect the non-oil freight transport sector overly in the first place. Although the outlook is slightly more precarious than in years gone by, high levels of reserves and a wealthy population means that spending on both capital goods - driving bulk and project volumes - and consumer goods should continue, supporting the freight transport sector. ...Although the outlook is slightly more precarious than in years gone by, high levels of reserves and a wealthy population means that spending on both capital goods - driving bulk and project volumes - and consumer goods should continue, supporting the freight transport sector. Although our growth forecasts for volumes carried on Kuwait s different freight modes in ---- and ---- - namely Air and Road, the rail network is not yet operational - are not for spectacular growth, they are nevertheless positive, and will remain so over the course of our medium-term forecast period. As a country with a small and already fairly wealthy population, and with a freight transport network which serves for the most part only domestic demand, growth is usually fairly sedate in comparison to other emerging markets. ...We project that Kuwaiti air freight volumes will show a slight slowdown in their expansion in ----, forecasting growth of -.- compared to an estimated -.- in ----. This is in line with the outlook for the economy, although a resilient consumer will support growth.

...Kuwait is a hereditary emirate in which control previously alternated between the Bani Jaber and Bani Salem family lines. The succession of Sheikh Sabah has broken this tradition; however, while his power appears entrenched for now, there is still ambiguity in the succession system. ...Kuwait is a hereditary emirate in which control previously alternated between the Bani Jaber and Bani Salem family lines.
