Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/24/2014 -- We expect household spending in Mexico to pick up in the coming quarters, as unemployment declines and consumers gradually adapt to new taxes that took effect on January 1. We forecast real private consumption growth to accelerate to 3.1% in 2014, up from 2.5% in 2013. Although the recently introduced tax on sugary drinks and the tax hike on junk food is likely to have a negative impact on the food and drink sector in Mexico in the short term, we maintain a favourable outlook for the domestic consumer, and declining unemployment and rising disposable income will ensure a robust expansion in the sector over the long term. Real private consumption growth will accelerate this year in Mexico as the impact of recent taxes on household spending fades.

Walmex To Recover Through 2014 : Walmex is seen as a major bellwether for consumer spending in Mexico. However, it has not fared well over the past year or so, with sales at stores open for more than 12 months (same-store sales) having declined for three successive quarters. The latest setback has been reflected by the 2.4% year-on-year decline for the first-quarter period to end-March 2014. The comparables over the Q2-Q414 period are likely to be easier given the same-store declines in 2013. This, together with a brighter outlook for private...
