Juice in Egypt - New Market Report

LogoJuice in Egypt has always targeted mainly females and children, however, recently players have realised that there is an untapped market for male consumers too. The young male generation have been witnessed to hang around kiosks close to their homes to kill the curfew hours and manage their spending more by substituting going out to coffee shops by hanging out with friends at such places. Since buying juice in Egypt is considered to be a spontaneous decision, players have come to realise that focusing on kiosks as a selling channel would help reach a new target group, being "Males", and accordingly, a focus has been put on it as a successful selling channel. This led to an increase in sales, due to the frequency of the hang outs and the need to consume more than one drink over the course of an evening.

New Market Research Report: Vietnam Infrastructure Report Q3 2014

LogoAlthough we expect the Vietnamese infrastructure sector to take a longer time to recover, we are maintaining our forecasts for the overall construction sector due to the greater scope for growth in the residential and non residential sector. This greater scope for growth is brought on by the sizeable foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows, positive macro fundamentals for construction growth, growing domestic demand for goods and a nascent recovery in the residential sector.

New Market Study Published: Homeshopping in Venezuela

LogoHomeshopping faces strong competition from other non-store channels, especially direct selling and internet retailing. Direct selling enjoys high penetration among Venezuelan households thanks to several players that offer a wide range of products and brands. Direct selling networks reach most middle- and low-income households. Although direct selling is particularly strong in beauty and personal care, consumers also find options for healthcare, apparel, home improvement and personal goods. Personal contact, advice and payment facilities are the advantages of direct selling, which fit well in the highly social culture in Venezuela.

Romania Metals Report Q3 2014: New Research Report Available at Fast Market Research

LogoRomania's metals sector will continue to see modest growth over the coming years as it slowly recovers from the global downturn. This is primarily the case for steel, the largest sub-component of Romania's metals sector. With modest growth in both autos production and the country's construction sector, we expect modest growth in steel output over the next five years. In addition, with our expectation for steel prices to head broadly lower over the coming years, we see few sources of encouragement for the sector. Therefore, whilst we forecast modest growth in output, it will remain far off 2007 highs.

New Market Report Now Available: Venezuela Oil & Gas Report Q3 2014

LogoWe retain a cautious stance on the Venezuelan oil and gas sector. While a flurry of new loans and deals may improve the financial position of PdVSA over the short term, the threat that badly needed funds will diverted from investment into the oil and gas sector to fund social programmes remains as real as ever. Moreover, although our long-term forecasts call for growth as projects in the Orinoco belt ramp up, we expect Venezuela to continue its underperformance given the scale of challenges - which range from political interference to chronic underinvestment. Similarly, despite abundant gas reserves, we expect Venezuela to remain a net importer of gas over the course of our forecast period.

Now Available: Toys and Games in Saudi Arabia: Industrial Report

LogoSaudi Arabia's market for toys and games sees 27% CAGR over 2007-2012 due to country's vast, rapidly growing and young population, with the highest purchasing power in the GCC region. With 75% of imports in 2012, China is the dominant import partner for toys and games due to its cheap production and strong commercial relations with Saudi Arabia. Saudi industry of toys and games enjoys average annual growth of 15% over 2007-2012, but at a value of SR43 million in the latter year the industry is highly underdeveloped and far from meeting domestic needs.

As a result, the area suffers from the growing popularity of ready-to-drink soft drinks.
