Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2015 -- Following energy sector reform Mexico will garner significant foreign investment. We remain optimistic toward Mexico's long-term growth outlook on the back of a booming manufacturing sector, an increasingly strong private consumer and favourable demographics. We forecast real GDP growth of 3.7% in 2015, up from 2.6% in 2014.

We expect real private consumption growth in Mexico to accelerate. After slowing from 3.0% year-on-year (y-o-y) in H113 to 1.4% y-o-y in H114, we forecast real private consumption growth of 3.7% in 2015. New taxes on several consumer goods that took effect on January 1 2014 weighed on private consumption in the first half of the year. However, consumer confidence has been improving, signalling that the effects of the tax hikes are receding.

Mexico's booming manufacturing sector, increasingly strong private consumption and favourable demographics suggest that it is well placed to see solid economic expansion. We forecast robust 4.1% average real GDP growth over the coming decade. We expect Mexico's oil sector to become an increasingly important driver of growth following energy sector liberalisation in December 2013.

Key Trends And Developments: FedEx: Mexico Key To Realising LATAM Strategy

The strong demand for US imports to Mexico will drive revenue growth for US logistics operator Federal Express (Fed Ex) as components of its Latin America ground and air expansion plan, which came online in 2013 and 2014, begin to pay dividends. We hold this view despite a year-on-year revenue tonne-mileage decline in its air cargo wing FEDEX Express in the first seven months of 2014.
