New Market Research Report: Kuwait Infrastructure Report Q4 2014

LogoOur view for modest positive growth within Kuwait's construction sector is playing out driven largely by the housing sector , with our 2015 forecast for year-on-year growth standing at 3.8%.

Just Published: "Belgium Oil & Gas Report Q4 2014"

LogoBelgium's Oil and Gas sector offers little upside for growth due to a lack of indigenous reserves. A small amount of unconventional exploration may be possible targeting Belgium's coal-bed methane, but the potential exit of one of the country's key energy companies is likely to negatively impact the rate of development.

Report Published: "Jeans in Germany"

Now Available: China Infrastructure Report Q4 2014

LogoThe continued use of monetary and fiscal stimulus measures by the Chinese government at the expense of structural reforms suggests that near-term growth in China's infrastructure and construction sectors could be stronger than previously expected. That said, we still expect China's construction and infrastructure sectors to experience a structural slowdown over the long-term. The key reason for this outlook is because we believe that the basis for this increase in fixed asset investment is through the increase in liquidity in China's financial system, an unsustainable investment model due to the diminishing marginal return on expenditure.
