Thai export growth is expected to slow to 5% in 2022, down from the 12% forecast for this year, as global demand and inventory become normalised.

Existing risk factors include the relatively high freight rate, a shortage of shipping space, containers, and chips, as well as volatile oil and steel prices, said Chaichan Chareonsuk, chairman of the Thai National Shippers' Council.

Mr Chaichan said the Covid-19 situation will be another key risk factor next year, as the number of infections in Thailand remains relatively high.
