Industry View
The Qatari shipping sector continues to be dominated by the export of the country's key commodity, natural
gas, through the export terminal of Ras Laffan. Much of this is transported by national carrier Nakilat.
However, the country aims to increase its container and dry bulk shipping presence as well through the
development of the New Doha port, which is being developed to focus on capturing some lucrative
transhipment trade.
The country is not only investing in its ports. There are also significant developments in road and rail, not
least the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) rail network and the causeway that will link Qatar with Bahrain.
We forecast moderate growth in trade and port throughput in Qatar over the medium term. Air freight is
also taking off, supported by the growth of Qatar Airways Cargo and a new terminal.
