BMI View: Our forecasts for growth in freight transport volumes in Singapore are positive, reflecting a broadly positive domestic and global macroeconomic environment. Singapore's role as a global transhipment hub is both a blessing and a curse, with volumes prone to declining in times of global recession, but at present we expect that the country will benefit from relatively solid demand from key markets in Europe, where falling oil prices will support consumer demand growth. That said, the growth will be fairly lacklustre, especially in terms of air freight, and there remain salient downside risks, not least a slowing Chinese economy.

A strengthening domestic outlook and continued regional growth will drive Singapore's imports and exports in 2015 and benefit the freight transport sector. However, domestic imports and exports play only a relatively small role in Singapore's logistics sector, with re-exports being much more important. The country is a major aviation and container shipping transhipment hub, and the freight transport sector is thus affected by global trends. With an estimated population of 5.4mn, Singapore's import demands in terms of volume are relatively small. However, the country is natural-resource poor and is thus heavily reliant on energy imports. The economy is well developed and has a strong consumer class, which is also a driver of imports.
