The container market continues to climb steeply, the index adding another 28 points this week to stand at 536 (a 5.5% increase since last week). The only sector to record a loss this week was the 4250 TEU panama class, losing 1.2% basis 2 years (and a slightly lower 1.1% basis 12 months).All the other component sectors recorded rises, the most prominent being the 1700 and 2500 TEU geared and 2700 TEU gearless types. Indeed the 1700s gained a very firm 9.3% week-on-week; the other two sectors' performances being not far behind. There are a number of factors at play here with no single reason in particular standing out from the rest. The panamaxes however are probably losing ground after finding their temporary role as extra-loaders to overcome severe congestion on the United States west coast coming to an end. Nevertheless, panamaxes had already been enjoying some market renaissance at the expense of other sizes. However nothing stands still in such a dynamic industry so what may be in favour now may be out of favour in six months' time.
