"Qatar Food & Drink Report Q2 2014" Now Available at Fast Market Research

LogoStrong growth in the non-hydrocarbon economy, stemming from extensive construction activity and the rapid expansion of the services sector, will drive economic activity over 2014 and 2015. We forecast real GDP of 5.4% this year and 5.0% in 2015, from an estimated 5.7% in 2013. Downside risks remain limited at this stage, but include the potential for delays in the construction sector and an ongoing political dispute between Qatar and the rest of the Gulf. We forecast real private consumption growth of 11.0% in 2014 and 8.0% in 2015, up from an average of 6.2% in 2009-12. The country's fast-rising resident population, on the back of high demand for foreign workers in preparation for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, will help to fuel growth in the consumer sector, including the food and drink sector.

"Saudi Arabia Consumer Electronics Report Q2 2014" Is Now Available at Fast Market Research

LogoA government policy to reduce Saudi Arabia's reliance on foreign workers is having a negative impact on the sales of mobile handsets in the kingdom, with local retailers reporting that their sales have nearly halved as a result. Saudi Arabia's high mobile penetration rate has been largely boosted by the presence of a large number of foreign workers, many of whom were not included in official population statistics. BMI sees the government's move having a negative impact on mobile device sales as well as total mobile subscriptions in the market, however, we expect average prices to rise as a result.

Romania Real Estate Report Q2 2014 - New Market Report

"Ukraine Telecommunications Report Q2 2014" Published

LogoThe ongoing crisis in Ukraine will likely filter down to the telecoms market as well, after operators reported damaged networks and instances of network blackouts, causing them to temporarily close retail outlets in Kiev. Crimea looks set to be annexed by Russia and there is a risk that the likes of Ukrtelecom will not be able to operate in the region once it legally becomes part of Russia. We have downgraded our broadband and internet forecasts as a result of this and expect to see revenue slowdown for some of the major players over the course of 2014. A possible silver lining is that the change in Ukrainian government could see the acceleration of the 3G licensing process, which has artificially held the market back for years and left it with the lowest mobile broadband penetration. We remain bearish on this possibility while the government has more pressing security concern, before a technical review of the spectrum allocation can be undertaken.
