New Market Research Report: RTD Tea in Estonia

LogoRTD tea recorded strong growth in 2013 largely due to new launches and the relatively warm and sunny summer in 2013. Moreover, RTD tea gained attention as it is perceived as a healthy soft drink in comparison to other categories, such as carbonates. However, as Estonians health awareness improves, they are realising that RTD tea often contains as much sugar as carbonates and fruit/vegetable juice.

Bahrain Telecommunications Report Q3 2014 - New Market Research Report

LogoBMI View: Bahrain's telecoms market is rapidly moving towards high-value wireless and wireline data services, supported by the launch of 4G LTE network services and 100Mbps fibre broadband services in 20 13 an d early 2014 . As well as encouraging continued take-up of 3G and 4G, we expect telecoms operators to increase their focus on improving subscriber mixes and bolstering their converged and value added services portfolios in order to offset declining voice revenues and the impact of market saturation. We have a positive outlook for the take-up of higher-value services based on the government's planned investment in a National Broadband Network and its expansionary policy, which will sustain high private consumption levels. However, year-end data for 2013 confirmed our view that strong growth in the mobile data market poses a downside risk to growth in the fixed broadband sector.

China Insurance Report Q3 2014 - New Market Study Published

What is less clear, though, is whether the larger insurance companies will be able to sustain the strong growth in investment income that they have enjoyed over the last year or so.

New Market Report: RTD Tea in Nigeria

LogoWhile RTD tea is relatively new in Nigeria, having first appeared in 2008 under the Cway Ice Tea brand from Cway Food & Beverages Co Nig Ltd, the category has seen volume sales increase steadily since then.

Nevertheless, having gained a foothold, the category's growth rate at the end of the review period is, not surprisingly, slower than at the start of the review period.

Report Published: "Chile Consumer Electronics Report Q3 2014"

LogoThe consumer electronics market in Chile remains one of the most lucrative in Latin America due to high incomes and developed retail and distribution networks, notwithstanding the small size of its population. Sales of consumer electronics devices such as tablets and smartphones are the largest contributors to market growth, with lower cost Android devices extending market reach. Meanwhile the economic environment remains supportive with banks willing to extend credit and the unemployment rate remains low. However, there is a note of caution to temper our positive outlook, with a significant slowdown in external demand potentially disrupting household spending. Despite this our core view of growth remains bullish based on the fundamentals of low household penetration of many digital devices, plus their growing affordability, which should keep the consumer electronics market on an upward trajectory.
