Market Report, "Clothing Accessories in Japan", Published

LogoClothing accessories continued to perform weakly in 2011, with a current value terms decline of 3%, dropping to JPY445 billion.

Chilled Processed Food in the Netherlands - New Market Report Now Available

There are many consumer trends which...

"Malaysian Tourism Industry Outlook to 2016: Market Profile" Now Available at Fast Market Research

LogoMalaysia receives the ninth-highest tourist volume in the world making it an attractive tourist destination. Malaysia's tourism industry has been important in driving the country's economic and social development since the late 1990s, and it emerged as the second-largest revenue generator for the Malaysian economy after the manufacturing industry. The steady growth in international visitor arrivals enabled the country to capture a share of XX% of the total number of inbound tourists to the Asia-Pacific region. While the overall tourism industry grew steadily despite the adverse affects of the global economic crisis, recent geo-political events such as the political instability in the Middle East, the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, rising fuel costs and the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis have constrained the industry's growth.

Czech Republic Information Technology Report Q3 2012 - New Market Research Report

LogoBMI View: The Czech Republic's IT market is forecast to increase to US$4.5bn in 2012, down by around 2%, with our projection downwardly revised due to macroeconomic factors.

BMI forecasts that demand will pick up after 2014, but economic uncertainty and rising unemployment will likely mean that during BMI's five-year forecast period, growth will remain below the immediate pre-2008 trend level.

Market Report, "Chile Food & Drink Report Q3 2012", Published

LogoEven though its population falls short of the 18mn mark, Chile leapfrogged Brazil to top our Latin America Risk/Reward Ratings matrix for Q312. Despite some economic growth uncertainties posed by slower growth in its main export partners, Chile's positive short- to medium-term consumer demand story remains in play.

Market Report, "Canada Insurance Report Q3 2012", Published

Logo2011 was a challenging year for Canada's world-class life insurance segment. Low interest rates, volatile financial markets, the complexities of changing regulation and, perhaps above all else, strong competition in most lines kept profits under downwards pressure. Nevertheless, the results that were published by the three largest listed life insurers - Great West Lifeco, Sun Life Financial and Manulife - highlighted these giants' strengths. Although the details differed from company to company, each highlighted the benefits of: deliberate focus on more rapidly growing and/or more profitable lines; product innovation; development of new distribution channels; use of technology (including iPhone apps for customers) to improve overall efficiency and customer service; powerful brands; capital strength, and absolute scale. Each of the three has acquired and built very substantial businesses in the US and elsewhere in the world. Looking forward, none of the three expects that overall operating conditions will improve much in 2012, but each is confident of delivering positive outcomes to customers and shareholders.
