Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/30/2015 -- Russia's two bellwethers, the port of St Petersburg, the country's main box facility, and the port of Novorossiysk, one of Russia's largest ports in terms of total throughout, are set to hold their respective positions in Russia's maritime sector in 2015. Despite the recent depreciation of the rouble, we expect Russia's consumer story to remain attractive over the medium-term, helping container throughput growth at the country's ports. Economic growth continues to slow in 2015 as the main driver of growth over the past decade - household consumption - continues to weaken.

St Petersburg's growth in tonnage is expected to almost disappear and containers volumes to continue contracting in 2015, while Novorossiysk is forecast to post growth in tonnage similar to the one of St Petersburg box.

Over the medium-term we project further growth at the port of St Petersburg both in terms of tonnage and box throughput and growth in container throughput at the port of Novorossiysk.
