BMI View:

BMI maintains its cautiously optimistic view on the US shipping sector. We believe 2015 will
see the country's major facilities consolidate the growth seen in 2014. Our overall view that the US economy will continue to accelerate remains firmly in place. We are forecasting GDP growth of 2.7% in 2015.
Stronger contributions from personal consumption expenditure growth will be offset somewhat by slower fixed investment growth and a contraction in government spending, as well as a negative contribution from net exports. We believe currency strength will discourage foreign customers from purchasing US-produced goods and services over the near term, while promoting an increase in imports. As a result, we expect that any improvement in net exports will be subdued in real terms over the coming months. Over a longer time horizon, our Oil & Gas team is optimistic about a range of new fields coming online, which will reduce US demand for foreign energy and eventually provide an important source of export revenues in the form of liquefied natural gas.
