India Shipping Report

BMI View: The primary issue in Indian shipping continues to be the state of the nation's ports. Investment in the 12 major state-run facilities has not kept up with the demand engendered by rapid economic growth experienced in India over the past decade. This is leading to repeated issues of congestion in the ports, but investment is now starting to be made. However, this may be a case of too little, too late. Further, Indian ports' troubles have been compounded by a fall in demand in the eurozone, which has contributed to a fall in container throughput at many facilities in recent years . It is hoped that the projected return to growth in the currency bloc in 2014 will result in throughput growth returning to the major Indian ports.

Headline Industry Data

  • 2014/15 (ending March 2015) Port of Kandla tonnage throughput forecast to grow by 1.4% following a disappointing decline of 7.1% the previous year, driven by heavy monsoon rains. Over the medium-term forecast period from 2014/15 to 2018/19, growth will average 2.1%.

  • 2014/15 Port of Jawaharlal Nehru container throughput forecast to grow by 1.8%, following a contraction of 2.3% the previous year. Growth to average 2.5% per annum over the medium term.

However, a trail on the route is slated to commence on October 14.
