2012-08-31 14:13:50 - New Transportation market report from Business Monitor International: "Turkey Shipping Report Q3 2012"
Throughput at the port of Ambarli, Turkey's largest container port, is set to decrease in terms of tonnage in 2012, while its box volumes are to slow due to the macroeconomic outlook, with real GDP forecast to slow and Turkey's export sector heavily exposed to Europe.
Over the medium term we project stronger growth at the port of Ambarli. BMI highlights that the privatisation of Turkey's port sector has been followed by a flood of investment, with a number of projects underway to boost capacity at the nation's ports.
Headline Industry Data

Key Industry Trends
Yilport Keeping Pace With Box Trends
A new container terminal at Turkey's Yilport Gemlik is currently under construction and is on course for completion in December 2013. The port highlights two of BMI's shipping trends: the first is that the privatisation of Turkey's port sector has led to an influx in investment; and the second trend is that ports currently being constructed are being developed to cater for the global trend of mega vessels.
Azeri Oil Shipments Via Ceyhan Decrease
The State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) has released data on Azeri oil exports via the Baku- Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) export pipeline. A total of 12.5mn tonnes of oil were shipped from Turkey's Ceyhan Port in January-May 2012, with May's figure of 2.41mn tonnes being 13% less than previous month's 2.77mn.
Risks to Outlook
The base for decline at the country's ports stems from BMI's wary outlook for the Turkish economy. Our 2012 real GDP growth forecast for Turkey is just 3.0%, compared with 2011's growth of 8.5%.
