The outlook for Oman's shipping sector is mixed. The port of Salalah is expected to endure a third
consecutive year of decline in 2015, but the port of Sohar will enjoy extraordinary growth once more. This
is largely due to the transfer of operations from Sultan Qaboos, but continued investment into new dry bulk
industries will also prompt strong growth. Despite the at-times challenging outlook, Oman continues to
invest in its maritime facilities.
Headline Industry Data
2015 container throughput at Salalah is forecast to contract by 3.5%. Growth will return in 2016, and
