SeaIntel: IMF prognosis puts pressure on India and US ports

The positive predictions from the International Monetary Fund IMF regarding global growth from April this year, are increasing pressure on the Indian and American ports, according to SeaIntel in a new analysis.

The most recent prognosis from the International Monetary Fund IMF from April this year is good news for the container industry, according to SeaIntel in a new analysis focusing on the IMF's review. However, this will also pose challenges for large economies such as the US and India.

In the general sense, the IMF prognosis is good for container shipowners. This is due to several factors, according to SeaIntel. Generally the growth in the global economy is expected be higher this year and next year with 3.5 percent and 3.8 percent respectively. This is better than the growth that the world experienced in 2013 and 2014 and meanwhile the growth in the global trade will increase with 3.7 percent this year and 4.7 percent in 2016.
