BMI Industry 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 the 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 being made. However, this may be a case of too little, too late. Further, Indian ports'
troubles are being compounded by a fall in demand in the eurozone, which has contributed to a fall in
container throughput at many facilities in recent months.

Headline Industry Data
