Market Sentiment Index

The Market Sentiment Index is a leading indicator index of activity in the MPP industry. It averages the responses from an anonymous group of multipurpose vessel owner and operators to a set of breakbulk shipping-related questions. A reading of 50 is neutral, indicating a static market; scores below 50 show pessimism or wariness, and a score above 50 indicates optimism

Quarter 3 – 2021

A bullish outlook is driving sentiment positively upwards.  A combination of rising cargo demand in the break bulk sector together with continued disruption in the container markets is combining to shorten MPP tonnage supply to its core markets and exacerbate an already unprecedented situation. 

Respondents to the Market Sentiment Index Edition #2 unanimously agree that the party is destined to continue long into the year and probably into next.  And as tonnage becomes harder to obtain and freight rates inevitably rise, charterers will endeavour to lock in tonnage further into the future.  The spot market is in all practical senses currently moribund.
