Industry View
Our outlook for the port of Singapore for 2013 remains that it will not overtake the port of Shanghai for the
crown of the world's largest container port, as we had envisaged several quarters ago. We now see such a
scenario as unlikely to fall out, and we have revised down our outlook for growth in box handling in 2013
further, now forecasting growth of just 1.0%, compared with our previous forecast of 1.4% growth. This is
based on poor monthly data coming out of the port, and the worsening outlook in the eurozone. We have
revised down our GDP growth forecast for the currency bloc to a decline of 0.5%.
Headline Industry Data
■ Port of Singapore's gross tonnage will grow by 3.2% in 2014 and will expand at the same average rate
over our medium-term forecast period to 2018.
■ Port of Singapore box handling set to grow by 2.8% in 2014, with average annual growth set at 3.5% per
annum over the medium term.
■ The country's overall trade will grow by 3.4% in real terms in 2014 and will average 4.1% to 2017.
