Vietnam Information Technology Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of Vietnam Information Technology Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering Vietnam's IT market is set to maintain its position as a regional outperformer over the medium term. We forecast IT spending will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6% between 2014 and 2018, with expansion underpinned by rising incomes, enterprise modernisation and the policy environment put in place by the government. We also highlight larger opportunities in the retail market where penetration of devices and services remains below the level in neighbouring markets, which vendors will be able to tap as incomes rise. The government is also a significant factor underpinning our bright outlook as it pursues a range of ICT initiatives and allocates funding to develop Vietnam's domestic IT industry. These policies include the promotion of Vietnam as an outsourcing destination, with the services segment expected to expand rapidly. There is also increasing momentum towards Vietnam becoming a global centre for electronics production as wages rise in China and manufacturers look to protect margins by moving to Vietnam, where wages are as little as a third of those in China. Headline Expenditure Projections ? Computer Hardware Sales: VND44,389bn in 2013 to VND74,872bn in 2018, CAGR of +11% in local currency terms. Strong sales growth forecast to continue as rising incomes, declining device prices and improved credit provision underpin demand growth. ? Software Sales: VND5,610bn in 2013 to VND11,766bn in 2018, CAGR of +16% in local currency terms. Piracy continues to be a drag on the market, but there are large opportunities in business software and security solutions for vendors willing to accept narrow margins in a price-sensitive market.

United States Information Technology Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of United States Information Technology Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering The outlook for US IT spending remains strong relative to the majority of developed markets over the medium term, as a result of stronger economic performance and a greater appetite from enterprises for the latest products and solutions. Cloud computing, real-time enterprise software, security and big data are all areas of spending in which we expect to see rapid growth. We also expect continued demand growth for tablets in the retail market; however, desktop and notebook sales continue to be squeezed. There is also potential for deeper fiscal retrenchment to hit government IT spending. The NSA PRISM scandal continues to produce fallout amid concerns about data security in the cloud computing market. Total spending is expected to reach US$622bn in 2014, up 5.9% from 2013, and grow at a CAGR of 4.3% to 2018. Headline Expenditure Projections ? Computer Hardware Sales: US$152bn in 2013 to US$157bn in 2014, an increase of 3.9%. Booming tablet sales are driving growth while desktop and notebook sales are under continuing pressure from cannibalisation. ? Software Sales: US$173bn in 2013 to US$184bn in 2014, an increase of 6.4%. Emerging technologies such as machine-to-machine and big data are being adopted by enterprises, while demand for cyber security solutions is also an area of growth.

United Kingdom Information Technology Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of United Kingdom Information Technology Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering The UK IT market remains a lucrative location for vendors in Europe, as home to one of the largest public sector outsourcing markets. There are also areas of fast growth, particularly around emerging technologies such as datacentres and cloud services and Big Data that are subject to government support. There is however significant downside, as spending is squeezed by fiscal austerity measures, fragile business and consumer confidence, and a decline in desktop and notebook shipments. Furthermore, the failure of high profile public IT projects in recent years has heightened public scepticism about further projects. Taking these factors into account, UK IT spending is forecast to increase 3.0%, to GBP55.1bn in 2014, slightly faster growth than forecast in the previous update, as the macroeconomic environment shows signs of strengthening. Headline Expenditure Projections: ? Computer Hardware Sales: GBP112.1bn in 2013 to GBP112.28bn in 2014, +1.7% in local currency terms. A boom in tablet sales has offset the decline in purchases of desktop and notebooks, but with the tablet market heading towards saturation growth will decelerate from 2014. ? Software Sales: GBP7.632bn in 2013 to GBP7.864bn in 2014, +3.0% in local currency terms. Software spending growth is occurring in key areas, such as security solutions and big data analytics, while Windows 8/8.1 upgrades are also a factor.

United Arab Emirates Telecommunications Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of United Arab Emirates Telecommunications Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering We retain a bullish value and subscriptions growth outlook for the UAE telecoms sector over new forecast period, ending in 2018, on the back of strong economic growth and the expected surge in visitor numbers in the run-up to the Dubai 2020 World Trade Expo. Meanwhile, the market is witnessing the development of a wide range of advanced telecoms-related services, including m-government, mcommerce, telecare, machine-to-machine (M2M) and smart cities. We expect these trends to spur operators to step up their capital expenditure in mobile and fixed network infrastructure over the next few years as they prepare their networks to cope with higher demand for various communication services, especially data. Key data ? The mobile market grew by 3.2% q-o-q in Q413 and 16% y-o-y in the 12 months December 2013. ? The fixed-line sector grew by 0.8% q-o-q in Q413 and 6% y-o-y in the 12 months to December 2013. ? The fixed broadband sector grew by 1.6% q-o-q in Q413 and 9.1% y-o-y in the 12 months to December 2013. ? Market average mobile ARPU fell by 9.9% y-o-y in FY13.

United Arab Emirates Retail Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of United Arab Emirates Retail Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering The UAE retail sector is forecast to continue to grow over the next few years, with strong underlying economic growth, expatriate wealth and Dubai's growing importance as a fashion hub resulting in a strong rise in household spending across all retail subsectors. We are particularly positive about the growth prospects for clothing & footwear and food & non-alcoholic drinks; however, we expect by far the highest proportion of the household budget to be spent on housing & utilities throughout our forecast period. Food & non-alcoholic drinks and transport will also take substantial shares. The new UAE retail report provides an extensive and comprehensive forecast of various retail indicators including household spending and headline total spending across each retail subsector, household income and employment forecasts, demographic forecasts and a detailed breakdown of household and per capita spending across a large number of retail areas including food & drink, clothing & footwear, household goods and a number of other subsectors.

Ukraine Shipping Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of Ukraine Shipping Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering The port of Odessa is set to hold the top position in Ukraine's maritime sector in terms of container throughput and of the top positions in terms of total tonnage in 2014 after overtaking the port of Illichivsk in terms of boxes handled in 2010. Odessa is in a strong position to build on in 2014. The operator of the container facility at the port, HPC Ukraina, the Ukrainian unit of Germany's Hamburger Hafen Und Logistik AG (HHLA), is seeking to increase the port's role in the global container shipping sector by developing it into a direct port of call, thereby decreasing Ukraine's reliance on the Romania's port of Constantza for its box transhipment. The first phase of a new deep-water container terminal is expected to commence operations in 2014. Over the medium term, we project further growth at the port of Odessa both in terms of total and box throughput. Illichivsk's container volumes are set to begin stabilising as a result of UTC resuming its operations at the port.

Turkey Shipping Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of Turkey Shipping Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering We have been below consensus on Turkey's medium-term real GDP growth outlook since mid-2013, based on our view that the country's growth model, driven by a huge reliance on foreign borrowing to fund a rapid expansion of domestic credit, would no longer be viable in light of tightening global liquidity conditions. While signs of easing domestic demand were beginning to emerge by end-2013, destabilising political developments have exacerbated a downturn in investor sentiment, consumer and business confidence. Following an estimated 3.6% growth in 2013, we now forecast real GDP to expand by 1.5% and 3.0% in 2014 and 2015 respectively, well below consensus estimates of 2.3% and 4.0%. The effect of lira depreciation in boosting export competitiveness, in conjunction with accelerating growth in the European Union, implies a fairly upbeat outlook for export growth in 2014. The European Union accounted for 41.5% of Turkey's total export market in 2013, concentrated in Germany and the UK where we expect domestic demand to play a more prominent role in economic growth.

Spain Telecommunications Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of Spain Telecommunications Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering Although Spain's mobile market continued to decline throughout 2013, we believe there is scope for recovery for operators as 4G services have launched and smartphone ownership remains important. There is no indication so far that this has improved ARPUs, but BMI believes this will be a longer-term development. Economic pressures continue to affect market opportunities, but there is little indication that subscribers are willing to abandon their mobile and broadband services. An improved economic outlook will help create more employment opportunities, in turn raising spending. We believe a slow increase in the number of mobile subscribers will start in 2014, and subsequent years will see a continued slow recovery in the mobile market. Key Data ? The mobile market contracted by 5.9% year-on-year (y-o-y) in Q413, reaching 49.632mn. ? The disconnection of active subscribers had helped maintain APRU rates but these continue to decline because of consumers' heightened price sensitivity and the continued implementation of mobile termination rate cuts. ? Dedicated mobile broadband subscriptions have not recovered, according to the Comisin del Mercado de las Telecomunicaciones.

South Africa Retail Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of South Africa Retail Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering Despite high unemployment and inflation both hurting spending at the moment, South Africa's retail sector is expected to grow steadily over the next few years as the country's increasingly sophisticated urban population and expanding black middle class continue to spend on non-essential items such as clothing and furnishings. This will result in a strong rise in household spending across all retail subsectors. We are particularly bullish about the future growth prospects for restaurants & hotel spending, as well as education and personal care. However, we expect housing & utilities expenditure to remain by far the highest throughout our forecast period. The South Africa Retail Report provides an extensive and comprehensive forecast of various retail indicators including household spending, and headline total spending across each retail subsector, household income and employment forecasts, demographic forecasts, and a detailed breakdown of household and per capita spending across a large number of retail areas including food & drink, healthcare and insurance, consumer electronics, toys, pets, gardens, household goods, and a number of other subsectors.

Slovakia Food and Drink Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of Slovakia Food and Drink Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering Though household consumption has recovered slightly over recent quarters, we remain fairly cautious in relation to Slovakia's near-term discretionary spending in the food and drink sector. We forecast unemployment to fall to 12.5% in 2014, the first time the rate has fallen below 14% since 2010. We expect the recovery in household spending to gain traction, and hold our forecast for private consumption growth in 2014 at 2.0%. This implies a significant 1 percentage point contribution to headline growth, which has relied solely on external demand since the economic crisis hit. We forecast this increase in private consumption to translate to a 3.1% increase in total food consumption through 2014. Headline Industry Data (local currency) ? 2014 per capita food consumption growth = +3.05% year-on-year (y-o-y); forecast compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to 2018 = +3.73% ? 2014 alcoholic drinks sales growth = +2.53% y-o-y; forecast CAGR to 2018 = +5.06% ? 2014 soft drinks sales growth = +2.01% y-o-y; forecast CAGR to 2018 = +3.54% ? 2014 mass grocery retail growth = +3.14% y-o-y; forecast CAGR to 2018 = +4.89%

Saudi Arabia Retail Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of Saudi Arabia Retail Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering Strong economic growth, rising disposable incomes, an increasing acceptance of the concept of modern retailing, an enlarged consumer base created by the improved position of women in society, as well as more opportunities for Saudi workers, are all expected to result in steady growth for the Saudi Arabian retail sector over the next few years. Household spending will rise across all retail subsectors, but we are particularly bullish about the future growth prospects for restaurants & hotel spending, with expenditure on furnishing & home also forecast to grow strongly between 2014 and 2018. However, we expect personal, insurance & other expenditure to remain by far the largest subsector throughout our forecast period. The new Saudi Arabia Retail report provides an extensive and comprehensive forecast of various retail indicators including household spending, and headline total spending across each retail subsector, household income and employment forecasts, demographic forecasts, and a detailed breakdown of household and per capita spending across a large number of retail areas including food & drink, healthcare and insurance, consumer electronics, toys, pets, gardens, household goods, and a number of other subsectors.

Russia Oil and Gas Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of Russia Oil and Gas Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering Russia is pumping post-Soviet record levels of oil and is likely to continue to see a short-term increase in both oil and gas production, but a high level of investment will be required to maintain this. It also faces pressure to diversify its gas markets, in view of an increasingly challenging core market in Europe and growing competition from other global gas suppliers. Tax breaks given to encourage offshore and tight oil developments could help support Russian oil and gas output in the longer term, though we warn that the consolidation of Rosneft's position in the country's upstream segment limits gains from regulatory changes to privileged firms with political connections in the country. It also threatens to squeeze out Russia's independent refiners owing to Rosneft's control of crude oil supplies to the market. The main trends and developments we highlight for Russia's oil and gas sector are: ? Russian oil production reached a post-soviet high of about 10.5mn barrels per day (b/d) in 2013, according to official figures from Russia. Recent changes to its tax regime - including tax breaks for tight oil and offshore production - promises to encourage investment and to support output. As such we have cautiously revised our oil production forecast upwards and expect it to stagnate at about 10.4-10.5mn b/d through to the end of our forecast period in 2023. Faster-than-expected development of its tight oil deposits particularly from the Bazhenov shale poses an upside risk to our outlook.

Russia Consumer Electronics Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of Russia Consumer Electronics Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering The outlook for the Russian consumer electronics market has weakened due to a worsening domestic economic environment, rouble depreciation and political uncertainty surrounding the situation in Crimea. We still expect the consumer electronics market to record growth every year in our forecast period to 2018, but there is increased downside. We now expect spending to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 2.9% 2014-2018, to reach a value of US$35.446bn in 2018. Growth will be driven by the growing popularity of digital lifestyle products like smartphones, Smart-TVs, tablets, and hybrids/ultra-thin notebooks. The market should receive an additional medium term boost from Russia's WTO entry, confirmed in August 2012, with import taxes of 5-15% expected to be lowered within three years. Headline Expenditure Projections Computer Hardware Sales: US$12.4bn in 2013 to US$11.9bn in 2014, +4.7% in US dollar terms. The computer market will be hit by rouble depreciation, a drag on a big-ticket item market. Meanwhile, the continued shift from notebooks to low-cost tablets will also be a drag on value growth.

Portugal Telecommunications Report Q2 2014

LogoReportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of Portugal Telecommunications Report Q2 2014 market report to its offering Operators continue to struggle with the dual pressures of economic weakness limiting subscriber spending and market maturity in the mobile sector. The former is a pressure for fixed services also, with operators facing difficulties in encouraging subscribers to upgrade to more expensive services. Data show declines across all segments of the market as Portuguese consumers look to keep their costs down, while operators are expected to continue investing in faster technologies to cater to the demand for more data. Key Data ? The estimated loss of 232,000 mobile subscribers in Q413 marked a return to the sharp declines reported in the first half of the year. ? Handset 3G subscriptions have proved more robust, with demand driven by consumer appetite for smartphones. Active voice and data subscriptions continue to rise, reaching 3.743mn at the end of Q313. Broadband subscriptions grew in Q413, in line with our expectations.
