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 from 2015 to 2019 will average 3.1%.-2015 total tonnage throughput at Sohar forecast to reach 58.96mn tonnes - an expansion of 9.8%.
