Ferrystat Seasonal and Forecast Data

This report (and associated spreadsheet) shows seasonally adjusted data for the main ferry routes based on the monthly figures generated by the Ferrystat report. Data is shown for passengers, cars and coaches for the UK-Continental (Short sea, North Sea and Western Channel), UK-Ireland (Northern, Central and Southern) and Domestic (Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Scotland) routes. Data tables are supported by Figures showing the reported, seasonally adjust and trend data.

The report also shows forecasts for passengers, cars and coaches for the above routes for the coming 12 months on a monthly basis, with data tables supported by Figure showing the forecast mid-estimates and the upper and lower bounds of the forecasts.

To produce the seasonally adjusted data and forecasts, IRN implements the concepts and algorithms used in the two leading seasonal adjustment methods:

  • TRAMO/SEATS – developed by the Bank of Spain
  • X-12ARIMA/X13 ARIMA SEATS – developed at the U.S. Census Bureau.

The report (pp111) is published quarterly: January (data to December), May (data to April), July (data to June) and October (data to September).

UK Ferry Market Annual Report 2018

This report provides a statistical overview of the UK Passenger Ferry Market based on returns from almost all UK passenger ferry operators. Although the market is made up of three market sectors – UK Continent, UK Ireland and Domestic routes  – some comparisons are also made with Eurotunnel.

Included in the UK Ferry Market Report are results of the online UK Ferry Survey which provides insights into UK ferry passengers on UK Continent routes. The Survey was conducted over December 2018 to February 2019 and attracted around  4,116 responses from passengers that had travelled by ferry/Eurotunnel in the last year.

Continental Ferry and Tunnel Passengers 2018

This report provides an analysis of UK residents who travelled to the Continent by ferry and tunnel in 2018. While it is a standalone report, it can also be used as a supplement to the UK Ferry Market Report 2018, published in 2019. Both reports contain results from the monthly IRN Research Ferrystat report and results from an online survey of UK residents who travelled to the Continent in 2018. The online survey generated 4,116 responses from passengers that had travelled by ferry or tunnel in 2018.  This report, in contrast with UK Ferry Market 2018, includes more analysis of tunnel passengers, provides more in-depth analysis of trip takers and only looks at Continental market trends (the UK Ferry Market includes market trends for the UK-Ireland and Domestic Ferry Markets).

For Ferrystat subscribers, the report (60pp, PDF), is available directly from IRN Research, priced at £90. UK sterling price is plus VAT, so total price is £108.
For non-Ferrystat subscribers, the report is priced at £500, or £600 including VAT.

Report PDF is dispatched when payment cleared. For Ferrystat  subscribers, reports will only be sent to buyers with an email on the Ferrystat distribution list
