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

Dials:

1. Previous Edition score

2. Forecast Next Edition

3. MSI average

Quarter 1 – 2021

Whilst the outlook is looking more positive than it has been for some years, recent improvements in market activity are not purely the result of MPP demand growth. Disruption caused materially by the container trades temporarily leaning in on MPP supply availability has created a period of distortion. Carriers therefore on the one hand are enjoying the fruits of new demand, but on the other hand remain cautious of its durability.
