Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/11/2014 -- BMI View: BMI continues to remain optimistic towards Mexico's long-term growth outlook , as a result of its booming manufac tur ing sector combined with a stronger private consumer. This should filter down to the consumer electronics sector, and we forecast spending to rise from USD13.8bn in 2013 to USD14.9bn in 2014.
Mexico is a manufacturing hub because of its proximity to the US, low overall costs (which are believed to be lower than the likes of China) and high quality labour.
