Qatar’s trade volume is expected to grow more than twice as fast as the world average in the next 15 years, according to a study by HSBC. Thanks to deals in Latin America, Asia and MENA the rate of growth is expected to rise to 160% compared with the world average of 73%. Qatar now accounts for some 0.25% of world trade, a figure expected to rise to 0.42% by 2025. Emerging markets appear to dominate expected growth and the U.S. is not projected to be in Qatar’s top ten trading corridors. As one might expect, much of Qatar’s exports will be in the form of oil.
