Market Report, "Czech Republic Food & Drink Report Q3 2014", Published

LogoDuring 2013 the Czech Statistical Office recorded continued improvements in consumer confidence levels, which should in turn start to be reflected in private consumption and household spending during 2014. We expect real GDP growth to return to the Czech economy from 2014 onwards, with our country risk team forecasting real GDP growth for the first time in two years. The only foreseeable potential risks to GDP growth would be as a result of further deteriorating growth within the country's eurozone neighbours, which seems unlikely at this time.

"Bleach in Lithuania" Is Now Available at Fast Market Research

LogoIn 2013, the customer base for bleach continued to decline in Lithuania. The category continued to face intensifying competition from the development of laundry care products with whitening effect and stain removers. The major consumer profile for bleach is income-sensitive customers, in particular elderly people and those living in rural areas. The younger generation perceive bleach as old fashioned and a damaging product not only to belongings, but also to health and the environment. The category is associated with economy products and is of little interest to new players.

New Report Available: Apparel and Footwear Specialist Retailers in Colombia

LogoOver the review period brands, such as Zara and Mango, brought the concept of fast fashion at affordable prices into the country and this has been widely accepted by consumers. This has thus motivated the arrival of new players as well as changes in the strategies of locals. Forever 21 arrived in late 2012 with low prices contributing to ignite competition as it appeals to a wider group of consumers seeking to wear the latest trends without spending too much. Local companies, such as Permoda, reinforced their strategy of multi-brand format and introduced more unusual and daring designs, such as Cueros Velez, which is expanding its Nappa brand, which offers products made of a combination of leather and other materials making them affordable to those who like Velez leather products and their quality but who are unable to afford them. The democratisation of fashion is likely to continue gaining ground in Colombia during the forecast period, not only in adult clothing, but also in children's clothing.

Recently Released Market Study: United States Metals Report Q3 2014

LogoBMI View: We maintain a modest though positive outlook for the US metals sector over our five-year forecast period . Our constructive US macroeconomic outlook underpins our view that metal production and consumption should see modest growth . However, we anticipate total production and consumption levels will remain below pre-crisis levels through 2018. For 2014 , we expect the country's improving economic outlook, particularly in the construction , oil & gas, and automotive sectors , will drive the sector .

Vietnam Shipping Report Q3 2014 - New Report Available

LogoLatest GDP figures show that the Vietnamese economy grew by 5.0% year-on-year (y-o-y) in Q1 2014, and we believe that our 2014 real GDP growth forecast of 5.9% remains in sight. Indeed, we believe that increased macroeconomic stability, combined with pro-growth policies will help the economy accelerate from 2013 levels. Key downside risks to this view include a faster-than-anticipated slowdown in China, as well as the stalling of the country's reform drive. With China being Vietnam's second top export partner, behind the US, such a slowdown would have a detrimental effect on Vietnam's shipping industry.

New Market Report: Philippines Telecommunications Report Q3 2014

LogoBMI View: The Philippine s telecoms market is somewhat limited by low consumer incomes . H owever , with large subscription growth opportunities , operators continue to grow rapidly , as their strategies remain focus ed on building subscriber bases . Over the medium term , we believe that operators may face difficulties transitioning to strategies that focus on increasing revenues from new services , such as fibre and LTE broadband . There is still growth potential, with penetration only just over 100% , leaving operators some time before pressure will build on their existing strategies . An additional factor which should insulate operator financial performance is that t he shared ownership of two of the market's operators has yet to have a negative impact on pricing for subscribers . However, BMI sees the potential for long - term implications from reduced competition.

Market Report, "Vacuum Cleaners in Turkey", Published

LogoVacuum cleaners in Turkey continued to record steady growth with a 6% increase in volume sales in 2013. As one of the steadiest categories in consumer appliances, vacuum cleaners has strong competition between a large number of domestic and international brands, and across all price bands. Growth in the average unit price (14% in 2012 and 11% in 2013 in current terms) resulted in higher value growth compared to volume growth. While some players focus on the lower end of sales, targeting lower-income consumers, some players, such as Senur Elektrik Motorlari San ve Tic, invest in innovation and design to capture a strong position in the category.

Now Available: Indonesia Infrastructure Report Q3 2014

LogoWe expect growth in Indonesia's construction and infrastructure sector to continue to slow down in 2014 and underperform growth seen in 2012 and 2013. This quarter, we have revised down our near-term forecasts for Indonesia's construction sector due to the growing possibility for a significant change in political leadership in Indonesia and the lack of policy certainty that comes with this change. We are forecasting construction growth in 2014 to reach 5.9%, down from our previous forecast of 6.3%. Our bearish near-term outlook can also be attributed to the limited scope for government capital spending to increase, higher borrowing costs, declining purchasing power for companies, and bottlenecks in project execution.

Report Published: "Mexico Insurance Report Q3 2014"

LogoThe latest results of the leading insurance companies in Mexico, both in the non-life and in the life segment, confirm that the main trends are positive. Secular trends mean that volumes are growing in most lines and sub-sectors. Premiums are also being boosted by product innovation on the part of the leading players themselves. In general, pricing is disciplined: a number of the majors emphasised how they have reduced claims and expense ratios through 2013. The positive trends should continue through the forecast period. . Both the non-life and the life segments are seen by leading multi-national insurance companies as opportunities which are too large or too rapidly expanding to ignore. In the swifter growing non-life segment, especially, it is possible to identify long-term trends which should support the growth in premiums. These include: the general expansion in financial services; the growth in consumerism and; initiatives to reduce the numbers of uninsured motor vehicles. Rapid expansion in private health spending through the forecast period should underpin strong growth in health insurance premiums. This is an opportunity for both the non-life and the life companies that are active in Mexico.

Kenya Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q3 2014 - New Market Research Report

LogoThe growing Kenyan population will support the growth of the country's pharmaceuticals and healthcare industry. While fertility rates have dropped over the last decade, from 5.0 births per woman in 2003 to 4.4 births per woman in 2013, we note that these figures are well above developed state fertility rates. In 2009, the EU-27 average stood at 1.59 live births per woman. However, we note that the country's young population will act as a limiting factor for pharmaceutical demand, presenting a challenge to drugmakers. In 2013, the median age of the population was 18.8 years and by 2050 this will increase marginally to 25.5 years.

Just Released: "Thailand Oil & Gas Report Q3 2014"

LogoBMI View: Thailand remains driven by a strong oil and gas demand which far outweigh domestic production. With no scope for the country to become self sufficient, it will be critical to develop the necessary gas import infrastructures and to maximise the country's below ground potential. With declining oil and gas reserves and with several delays already affecting the planned 21st licensing round, we expect while oil and gas production will increase slightly in the medium-term, the long-term trend remains one of stagnation or decline.
