Baked Goods in Algeria - New Report Available

LogoSustained demand for artisanal baguettes remained the main driver to shape growth within the baked goods category in Algeria in 2014. Artisanal baguettes were typically consumed and thus purchased on a daily basis within most homes in Algeria and constituted an integral staple of the Algerian diet. Because of the central place baguettes occupy in the national diet, and the dependence of production on imported raw materials, the government maintained subsidies on prices in order to ensure and...

"Sauces, Dressings and Condiments in Estonia" Published

LogoThe category's maturity and some changes in Estonians' nutritional habits will lead sauces, dressings and condiments to see a slight decline in total volume sales in 2014. The performance of the overall category will not be consistent as some categories within it will experience a decline and some will see improvement in both volume and value sales. In general, consumers are paying more attention to the quality, ingredients and (local) origin of the products. However, it should be noted that...

"100% Home Delivery/Takeaway in Ireland" Published

Logo2013 saw Ireland continue to slowly recover from the deep recession experienced during the review period. However, despite improving economic conditions independent operators continued to face difficulties with consumer spending remaining somewhat subdued and cautious with value-for-money remaining a key issue. In light of this, independent operators continued to struggle to compete against lower prices and better value deals offered in chained counterparts. Whilst the latter saw value growth of 14% with outlet numbers and transaction levels increasing by 13% and 4% respectively also, growth in value terms among independents declined slightly, whilst transactions and outlet numbers declined by 2% and 1%, in comparison.

Taiwan Food & Drink Report 2015 - New Market Report

LogoWe expect the slowdown in Taiwan's main export markets to continue to present headwinds to growth during 2015, as the country's over-reliance on tech-related exports leaves Taiwan vulnerable to both changes in the global electronic business cycle and demand changes in developed markets. With credit growth decelerating and private consumption remaining relatively subdued, we are forecasting a below consensus 3.1% real GDP growth for 2014 and have downgraded our real GDP forecast for 2015 to 3.5% from 4.1%. Therefore, as last year, we remain fairly pessimistic about the performance of Taiwan's food and drink market in the short to medium term, albeit that select individual (premium) sectors may still outperform the overall market.

"Cafes/Bars in Ireland" Now Available at Fast Market Research

LogoIreland's beleaguered pub trade recorded further declines in 2013 as consumers continued to tightly manage disposable incomes. Despite improving employment levels and a recovering economy many people still find themselves either unwilling or unable to afford the high cost of socialising outside the home. Bars/pubs have been particularly affected in this regard with alcohol readily available through grocery retailers often selling at below-cost prices. Despite this, sales through bars/pubs represented 75% of total value within cafes/bars. Of this, independents represent a 95% value share with the Irish market highly skewed towards family owned and operated enterprises, often passed down from parent to child.

New Market Study, "Venezuela Food & Drink Report Q1 2015", Has Been Published

LogoIn view of the substantial headwinds facing the Venezuelan economy, the country's real GDP is likely to contract by 2. 0 % in 2014 and grow by only 0.8 % in 2015. Despite enormous natural resource wealth, the economy's outlook will continue to be dimmed by poor macroeconomic governance, high inflation, low oil prices and significant political uncertainty. Furthermore, we expect household consumption to continue to be constrained by high inflation, which has substantially eroded purchasing power (we forecast headline CPI price growth rising to 60.8% year-on-year in 2014), as well as government price controls, which create market inefficiencies that significantly reduce productivity (and, by extension, incomes) .

New Market Research Report: Kazakhstan Agribusiness Report Q1 2015

LogoBad weather right at the point of harvest has significantly reduced the prospects for the 2014/15 wheat crop. Quality has been affected and export earnings as well as volumes are likely to be compromised as a result. Other grains have fared better and we do not foresee any problems with local availability of animal feed. Poultry, pork and beef farmers continue to be among the biggest beneficiaries of the government's plans to modernise the agricultural sector and we see strong lon g - term growth potential for the livestock industry. The dairy segment will demand more significant structural reforms and substantial investment in processing and storage infrastructure for us to regard it with similar optimism.
