Business Monitor International's Kuwait Shipping Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, shipping associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Kuwait's shipping industry.

Kuwait's ports have struggled to recover the volumes they enjoyed prior to the global economic downturn, but BMI expects this largely to be achieved in 2012, with only total tonnage throughput at Shuaiba not forecast to recoup lost levels until 2013. If there are continued instances of industrial unrest and strikes, however, as Kuwait's ports saw towards the end of 2011, then we may have to revise our forecasts down.

Kuwait's crude oil export facilities will continue to be busy in 2012. A pick up in demand as the US restocks inventories should boost throughputs, though there is the risk that another economic crisis could halt growth in Western oil demand once again.

Headline Industry Data

2012 Port of Shuaiba tonnage throughput growth forecast at 4.8% and to average 5.0% to 2016.

2012 Port of Shuwaikh container throughput forecast to grow 6.9% and to average 6.8% to 2016.
