Abstract:

Total trade will see real growth of -.- in ----, and -.- in ----. Road freight will increase by -.- in ---- and -.- in ----. ...Total trade will see real growth of -.- in ----, and -.- in ----. Our growth projections for volumes carried on Namibia s different freight modes in ---- and ---- are fairly varied, with road freight volumes set to lag behind the stronger growth performance we expect in rail and air freight volumes. This is a product in part of base effects given the low volumes in road and rail, in part of investment in developing these transport networks, and in part road s exposure to the consumer. ...According to our projections, growth in road haulage volumes in Namibia will be robust in ---- and over our medium-term forecast period to ----, although we do expect that there will be a slowdown over the period. This will be due to a slowdown in private consumption growth, although exports will offer some support.

Domestic economic growth and an expanding mining sector will continue to drive demand within the country, while continuing investment in freight transport links - both road and rail - with hinterland countries such as Botswana and Zimbabwe will see transit volumes grow. ...BMI View: Our forecast for the Namibian freight transport sector is positive, in both the near and longer term. Domestic economic growth and an expanding mining sector will continue to drive demand within the country, while continuing investment in freight transport links - both road and rail - with hinterland countries such as Botswana and Zimbabwe will see transit volumes grow. The outlook for Namibia s economy for the next few years is positive and we expect relatively stable real GDP growth of -.- in ---- and -.- in ----. Fixed investment growth will increase due to new regulations of minimum investment into unlisted assets. However, private consumption will decrease over the next few years due to stricter lending conditions in order to curb credit demand and this has the potential to weigh on road freight volume growth in ----.

...Growth in rail freight volumes will be somewhat sluggish over the next several years, especially in comparison to the much more dynamic growth we anticipate in road haulage volumes. Namibia s mining sector will continue to be negatively affected by low mineral prices and subdued metals demand, and this will affect rail freight volumes. ...
