We expect positive growth across the Kuwaiti freight transport sector in 2015, despite a nominal fall in trade. This is because this has been driven by a fall in oil prices, rather than by a decline in goods traded. The outperformer will be air freight, which will outpace the expansion in road freight volumes, while the launch of the country's rail freight network grows ever closer, with approval granted to its construction by the municipal council.

Kuwait will see moderate real growth in trade in 2015. We forecast an expansion of 2.6%, following an estimated 2.4% expansion in 2014. In 2016 we predict that growth will slow slightly to 2.5%, and will average 2.5% over our medium-term forecast period to 2019. Unlike some of its fellow GCC states, such as the UAE and Qatar, Kuwait does not have a significant transhipment hub such as the port of Jebel Ali,
Dubai International or Doha Airport, and therefore it has limited re-export trade. As a result, its trade is almost wholly domestically driven, and the outlook in this regard is somewhat mixed, in comparison to recent years at least.
