Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/12/2015 -- The 2016 growth pict ure at Malaysia's ports i s slightly mixed , with tonnage and box gains differing between the facilities . The P ort of Kuantan is set to be the outperformer once more in terms of tonnage growth (just under 10%) as the port is smaller than others and so there is spare capacity a t the facility. Meanwhile, the box throughput outperformer is set to be P ort Klang with growth of 8.46% pencilled in for 2016.

Looking at the macroeconomic picture, although we estimate that export growth is enduring a slowdown in 2015 (1% annual growth compared to 4.1% in 2014), July's figures looked promising with Dow Jones reporting a y-o-y rise of 3.5% in that month. This was attributed to an increase in shipments of electrical products; however, we do caution that the protracted slowdown in China will affect Malaysian shippers in 2016.

Over 2016-2019, we anticipate that Malaysia's best-performing port in average y-o-y container growth terms is set to be Port Klang, at 7.58% to reach over 17mn twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), while the Port of Kuantan will be the outperformer with regard to tonnage growth, at 8.28%. Underpinning our trend forecast for the sector, which, although relatively bright across the broad, represents a slowdown from 2015 levels, is the fact that we envisage certain economic icebergs on the horizon in the form of the ongoing economic slowdown in China, as well as from lower oil prices. Considering its status as Malaysia's largest trade partner (accounting for approximately 15% of exports), the ongoing slowdown in China's economy will continue to weigh on Malaysia's export growth.
