The UNCTAD previews that in quinquennium 2019-2024 a annual medium rise of +3.4% will be recorded

Last year international the marine traffic of the goods has been of 11,0 billion tons, with an increment of +2.7% on the 2017 that is inferior to the average historical of +3% and to the rise of +4.1% of the international transportations by sea recorded in 2017. The weakening of the trend of increase of the marine commerce is evidenced by the last relationship "Review of Maritime Transport 2019" elaborated from the Conference of the United Nations on the Commerce and Development (UNCTAD).

"The decrease of the increase of the marine commerce - the general secretary of the UNCTAD, Mukhisa Kituyi has explained - is the result of various factors, between which a weakening of the multilateral commercial system and an increasing protectionism". The relationship finds that in the 2018 commercial exchanges by sea they have lost overhong above all because of a situation of greater uncertainty, the tightening-up of the commercial tensions between the USA and China and of the increasing worries aroused from commercial policies and political developments, between which the mainly performance of the escape of the United Kingdom from the EU without agreements. "It is the sign - it has observed Kituyi - than the national policies can have an impact negative on the marine commerce and the aspirations of all to the development".

Last year the liquid bulk transport by sea, constituted mainly from crude oil, producing oil refined, gases and chemicals, is increased of +1.5% going up almost 3,2 billion tons. A little more consisting increase (+1.9%) of the bulk volumes sand banks, constituted mainly from mineral of iron, cereals and coal, that they are piled to 3,2 billion tons. The other cargos dry, constituted from goods in conventional container and goods, has marked consisting increment (+4.1%) attesting itself to more 4,6 billion tons.

The UNCTAD previews that in the quinquennium the 2019-2024 international marine commerce will grow with average annual of +3.4%, progression hauled mainly from containerized cargos, the solid bulk and the gas.

The specific relationship moreover that in the 2018 slow down of the trend of increase of international the marine commerce it has had an impact also on the harbour traffic, with a handling of container that in the world-wide ports has been pairs to 793,3 million teu, with an increase of +4.7% on the 2017 (year in which the increase had been of +6.7%). The reduction of the rate of increase of the containerized harbour traffic is the glare of the weakening of the tendency to the increase of the containerized marine traffic that last year is increased only of +2.6% respect to a recorded +6.0% in 2017. This is accompanied in 2018 from a rise of +6% of the ability to the world-wide fleet of portacontainer respect to a +4% in 2017, increase of the offer that has produced an ulterior pressure on the hires in the course of the year.
