Maritime and the low oil market

The reduction in crude oil pricing has helped the shipping industry reverse the negative drag of low freight rates and overcapacity. Waterborne storage of oil as a market-balancing measure may also provide positive trade winds for the tanker market.

The up and down of automotive demand

Oil importing countries are gaining economic benefits like lower gasoline prices which translates into more demand for cars. Negative economic impacts on oil exporting countries will tend to lower demand. Ultimately, lower oil prices are forecast to drive a two percent increase in overall global auto demand in the next four to five years.
