New Market Study Published: Brazil Agribusiness Report Q4 2013

LogoBMI projects Brazil consumer electronics spending will grow by about 11.7% in US dollar terms in 2013 to US$37.8bn. In 2013, sales of some consumer electronics devices have been hit by currency weakness and high household indebtedness, and this is expected to continue in H213. However, growth areas will include 4G smartphones, tablets, WI-Fi-enabled cameras and HD TV sets. The extension of the government's Lei Do Bem programme, to encourage local production of various products, should boost the availability of affordable smartphones and Huawei has already moved to take advantage of this.
