BMI forecasts growth across all freight modes in Serbia in 2011, followed by more moderate growth in 2012.

Total trade is projected to continue picking up, with our Country Risk desk forecasting a year-on-year (yo- y) increase of 11.6% in 2012 following an estimated growth of 16.3% in 2011.

Rail freight will continue to dominate the sector and is projected to grow by further 0.7% in 2012. The sector did not escape the effects of the downturn, but quickly recovered its pre-2009 freight volumes. BMI notes that road was the only mode in Serbia's freight transport mix which did not experience a decrease in volumes during the downturn. We predict further growth throughout our mid-term forecast period (2011-2016).
