Markets for Potential Investment over the Next Five Years
Survey question: Which of the following countries, if any, do you plan to expand into in the next 5 years?
Respondents indicated that India has moved ahead of
China as the market with the most planned investments
over the next five years. The slowing of growth in China,
in combination with the reforms which unlock potential
and increase efficiencies in the Indian market are
undoubtedly a part of this switch in position, as is the
centrality of China in expansion plans at many LSPs over
much of the last decade – LSPs have already established
operations in China. There was generally a high degree of
continuity in the top 10, overall, with Brazil retaining third
position despite a challenging few years, suggesting the
underlying potential of the market remains attractive to
logistics providers. In total, nine of the top 10 remained
the same, with only Malaysia, down three positions to
13th, falling out.
