New Market Report Brazil Freight Transport Report Q1 2015

( MENAFN Editorial )

We anticipate that growth in Brazil's freight transport volumes will outperform the Latin American giant's real GDP growth over our medium-term forecast period (2015-2019) across all modes. Brazil will remain mired in a period of low growth in the coming years due to a slowing consumer story persistent business environment challenges and a weaker external environment. A more substantial contraction in real GDP in Q214 than we anticipated has prompted us to revise down 2015 headline growth forecast. Nevertheless steady growth in mining and agriculture output will ensure that freight volumes keep growing.

Continued growth in the BRIC (Brazil Russia India and China) nation's mining and agribusiness sectors will ensure that the road rail and ports sectors will continue to experience healthy expansion while air freight will benefit from the growing demands of the country's expanding middle class. Further the sector will benefit from Brazil's role as a major exporter of a host of commodities.

Nevertheless there remain serious challenges to growth and hence risks to our outlook. These stem from both the physical side - whether infrastructure development in the country will be sufficient to support our projected growth rates; and the human - the ports sector is already undergoing a wave of industrial unrest as workers contest the government's proposed ports privatisation moves. 

We are revising down our 2015 forecast to 1.5% from 2.1% following a weak Q214 growth print. Real GDP contracted by 0.9% year-on-year (y-o-y) in the second quarter on the back of an 11.2% y-o-y contraction in real fixed investment. This real GDP contraction was weaker than our expectations and Bloomberg survey estimates of -0.6% y-o-y. Real GDP growth will head gradually higher in the coming quarters as private consumption gets a modest boost from falling interest rates and base effects bolster fixed investment growth.
