Industry Trend Analysis - Limited Food & Drink Growth Prospects From Rio Olympic Games - OCT 2016

Americas September 2016 / Brazil / Industry

The Rio Olympic Games will provide limited growth impetus for Brazil's food and drink industry on the back of tepid tourist spending growth and domestic consumer weakness. We expect tourism receipts to grow at a modest rate due to weakness in Brazil's largest tourist source market, Argentina. However, the games will bring greater dynamism in the drinks markets due to heightened health awareness, rise in outdoor activities and favourable weather.

Asia September 2016 / Vietnam / Industry

As many emerging markets look to have bottomed out, retailer Carrefour is likely to benefit from a return to economic growth and consumer spending in these countries.

Emerging Europe September 2016 / Kazakhstan / Industry

The Coca-Cola Company has posted disappointing half-year results for 2016 amid underperformance in developing markets and an ongoing slowdown in carbonated drinks sales.

Industry Trend Analysis - Neighbouring Markets To Buoy Beloxxi's Growth - OCT 2016

Beloxxi Industries Ltd will experience positive sales growth on the back of rising incomes, demand for baked goods and mass grocery retail formalisation in its West African export markets. However, demand in its domestic market, Nigeria, will remain sluggish due to a weak consumer outlook and a multi-year downtrend in spending on baked goods.
