Israel Shipping Report

BMI View: The Israeli ports sector is undergoing a state of flux, with the major ports set to be expanded with new, privately operated, terminals, which will be able to handle the larger vessels that are becoming the norm on the key Asia-Europe trade route on which Israel stands. However, these developments face strong opposition from current port workers and unions. In terms of demand, moderate growth at Israel's container-handling facilities should be supported by steady, though unspectacular, economic growth.

Headline Industry Data

  • 2014 Port of Haifa total tonnage throughput to grow by 7.2%, and to average 6.1% to 2018.

  • 2014 box handling at Haifa will contract by 0.1% to 1.36mn twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs). Growth projected to return in 2015 and average 2.7% to 2018.

  • Israel's total trade is forecast to see real growth of 3.2% in 2014, from a 3.0% expansion in imports and a 3.3% growth in exports. Growth will average 3.7% over the medium term.
