With the effective national macro-control policies, China's economy is developing steadily in 2004. Under the drive of the fast-growing national economy, cargo handling capacity of ports in China keeps a rapid growth and breaks the record again in 2004.

By the end of September, 2005, the total output of ports nationwide maintains a good momentum. There is a steady increase in the main economic indices of cargo throughput, foreign trade throughput and container throughput. The cargo handling capacity of major ports added up to 2.8798 billion tons in the first three quarters, increased by 18.3% over the same period last year. Of which, the handling capacity of major coastal ports reached 2.14548 billion tons with an increase rate of 18.5% year on year, while major inland ports handled 734.32 million tons, a 17.8% increase compared with the same period last year. The growth margin still keeps a higher level. Foreign trade cargo throughput of major ports nationwide is growing steadily amounting to 999.62 million tons, increased 19.2% than the same period last year. Of which, coastal ports handled 925.78 million tons, increased 19.1% year on year. Inland ports reached 73.83 million tons with an increase of 19.8% over the same period last year. Foreign trade transportation continues its rapid development. Container handling capacity of major ports nationwide achieved54.2348 million TEU with a sharp increase of 23.9% over the same period last year. Of which, coastal ports reached 51.0306 million TEU with a rise of 24.1% year on year while inland ports handled 3.2042 million TEU which increased by 20.8% over the same period last year.

In 2006, General environment home and abroad for the development of the national economy is positive. However, the economic growth is under the pressure of both further adjustment and over-supply brought by excessive production capacity.

The development of China's port industry is closely related to foreign trade import&export. Handling capacity and foreign trade cargo throughput of major ports respectively increased by 11.29% and 14.70% on average during1991-2004. What's more, the average increase of container throughput reached as high as 30.05% which is higher than an 18.38% rise in foreign trade import&export and a 9.69% increase in GDP. According to 1.8977 demand parameter (the growth rate of import&export/the increase rate of GDP) of GDP and foreign trade import&export as well as an average increase of 18.38% in trading in 1991-2004, the total volume of foreign trade import& export will keep an average increase of 20% annually during 2005-2007 in which an annual increase rate of 18.11% will be in profit earnings of the port industry. China’s port industry will maintain rapid development in 2005-2007 and develop into its mature period after 2007. Meanwhile, handling capacity of ports will be enhanced in virtue of the emergency of numerous new ports

The report is based on the data from authorities such as National Statistical Bureau of China, China Customs, the Development Research Center of the State Council (DRC), the Ministry of Communications, the Department of Water Transport, China Logistics Information Center, and the information from various kinds of newspapers and magazines as well as the primary data collected by our research teams located in Tianjin-Beijing area, the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta, etc. The report gives a detailed analysis of the output&construction of ports, market size and prospects, the demand&supply, competition trends and the container market, etc.,the report lays the emphasis on the business operation of ports nationwide in 2004 and 2005 and case study of key enterprises. The report also figures out the causes for the current structure of the port industry and the opportunities in the market, studies the development trends of the port industry in the next few years and puts forward suggestions for investment. The report not only serves port enterprises and science&research institutions but also investment groups to find out the latest developments of the port industry and make practical strategies.
