The Jeddah Islamic Port is set to hold the top position in Saudi Arabia's maritime sector in terms of both
total tonnage and container throughput in 2013 after demonstrating strong growth in 2012. Nevertheless,
volumes are set to contract year-on-year. Despite this the shipping sector in Saudi Arabia continues to look
strong, as major investment in ports continues and box and tonnage growth prospects over the coming years
are buoyant. While medium-term growth might be sedate, over the long term we remain bullish.
