FORECAST OF U.S. OCEANBORNE FOREIGN TRADE IN DRY BULK COMMODITIES

The basic purpose of the study was to provide a broad base of planning data outlining the trade environment within which the contemplated American-flag dry bulk cargo ships will be operated. The data consist of 25-year forecasts of oceanborne exports and imports of 14 principal commodity groups and a forecast of total U.S. oceanborne dry bulk trade. Annual rates of growth will be substantial, but less dramatic than in recent years. From 1965 to 1995 U.S. dry bulk oceanborne trade is forecast to double from 158 million tons to approximately 300 million tons, consisting primarily of ores and grains. ( Author )
