Clarkson’s Research has forecasted 2011 global containerized trade volume to grow by 9%, with Asia, the Middle East and South America growing at relatively higher rates than the U.S. and Europe. Growth in trade volume drives growth in container usage and has the need for container investment.Growth in trade volume is also positive factor in utilization rates. During the 2008, 2009 recession utilization rates fell as trade volume decreased. Declining trade volume is not the case today, trade volumes are increasing. Consequently, we expect continued demand for new containers and for utilization rates to remain robust.
