Egyptian consumers are not very concerned about health and wellness issues thus it is difficult for many of them to understand what snack bars are. It is also difficult for them to justify the high unit prices of these products.

Market Report, "Baked Goods in Croatia", Published

LogoOngoing unit price increases in bread in Croatia continue to result in a high level of dissatisfaction among the general public. Many Croatian bakeries attempt to justify the rising prices of their bread by reference to rising oil prices and recent tax hikes, although the majority of Croatians are well aware that bread and milk remain exempt from VAT. Croatian consumers are especially sensitive to increases in the unit price of bread as they are increasingly turning to bread as a basic staple...

The increasing availability of more affordable eyewear from both domestic manufacturers, and imports, particularly from China, are also making products more affordable. However, growth remains hindered by...

Market Report, "Biscuits in Germany", Published

LogoAll in all, biscuits continued to be a very mature and saturated category of packaged foods in Germany in 2012, without noteworthy, significant impulses which would be able to increase value or volume sales to a significant degree.

This proportion of Iranian society has been very eager to use new packaged food items and greatly contributed to growth. They are usually educated and are open to try new products.

New Market Report: Algeria Oil & Gas Report Q2 2013

LogoAdoption of new hydrocarbons regulation in January 2013 could spur exploration in Algeria in the coming year, especially in offshore and unconventional acreages. We are nonetheless sceptical about the tax reform, which could prove burdensome for oil and gas producers. The next short-term challenge for Algeria will be to alleviate the security concerns created by the In Amenas attack.

: New Market Research Report: China Information Technology Report Q2 2013

LogoChina's IT spending growth is forecast to increase by 9.8% in 2013 to reach a total value of CNY858.2bn. This is robust growth but a modest slowdown compared with 2012 as economic growth slows slightly. However growth will remain robust over the medium term with CAGR of 12% 2013 to 2017. There will be a deceleration of IT investment and retail spending, but modernisation drives in sectors such as education, healthcare and manufacturing should keep the market in positive growth territory. Meanwhile, China's strategy to develop the western areas of the country should drive sales of IT products and services, even if the developed east-coast economy hits a slowdown.

Now Available: Australia Oil & Gas Report Q2 2013

LogoAustralia is on track to become the world's largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) exporter by the end of our forecast period in 2022, surpassing Qatar as a series of major projects come online. However, the spiralling costs of LNG project will most likely slow the momentum in further expansion of Australia's LNG export capacity. The country will also have to contend with a growing reliance on oil imports as domestic crude oil production declines while refining outlook appears increasingly bleak in face of regional competition.

"United Arab Emirates Defence & Security Report Q2 2013" Is Now Available at Fast Market Research S

LogoThe United Arab Emirates continues to scale up its defence equipment procurement and its own initiates to establish itself as a regional hub in terms of defence equipment manufacturing. A key focus for the sector in the country has been diversification - in terms of trying to procure defence equipment from a diverse range of markets (chief among them being the US, the UK, France and Italy), in terms of trying to export its own manufacturing to a wider audience (primarily currently other markets in the Middle East and North Africa region) and in terms of diversifying its military equipment base to improve its ability to cater to new regional threats (ie the emergence of the threats of terrorism and piracy, in addition to more traditional surveillance needs).

Recently Released Market Study: South Africa Information Technology Report Q2 2013

LogoSouth Africa's economy stuttered in the latter part of 2012 owing to widespread industrial actions in sectors and the build-up to the ruling party's leadership elections. We are sanguine about real private consumption and government spending in 2013, forecasting growth rates of 3% and 3.8% respectively. However, the investment outlook is less positive, with real growth of just 2% in 2013. We therefore expect government-related projects to continue to drive growth in the IT market and the contribution of consumer expenditure to the overall IT to rise in 2013. That said, we believe key industry verticals with a high dependency on technology, notably financial services and retail, will step up their IT investments as concerns over the global economy recedes. We forecast South African IT spending to increase to about ZAR138.92bn in 2017, from ZAR88.89bn in 2012.

New Market Report: Taiwan Telecommunications Report Q2 2013

LogoTaiwan boasts one of the region's most advanced telecoms markets with high levels of smartphone ownership. Mobile technology is well accepted, with 3G subscriber number exceeding 2G subscribers since the end of 2008. Mobile broadband subscribers account for well over half of the broadband market. But with the 100% mobile penetration point passed, there are few prospects for growth in terms of building up subscriber numbers. Instead, operators focus on network development to offer faster speeds, VAS and handset upgrades to generate revenues. The prospect of a spectrum auction at the end of 2013 suggests that operators will continue to channel their efforts into improving 3G and 4G services, as a means of maintaining average revenues.

New Market Study, "Czech Republic Power Report Q2 2013", Has Been Published

LogoThe future of the country's power sector is largely dependent on nuclear and renewables, although gas has a key role to play over the medium term, as it will help reduce reliance on coal in electricity generation. Solar power use has soared thanks to an over-generous subsidy scheme, which has now been revised in order to deliver more modest but sustainable growth.

Report Published: "Philippines Agribusiness Report Q2 2013"

LogoWe hold a positive view on Philippines agribusiness sector in the long term, given the country's potential for new sectors expansion, such as palm oil. We particularly like the outlook for sugar production, and believe the livestock sector will continue to show healthy growth rates. The Philippines' vast consumption market, along with strong government support will foster domestic and foreign investment and favour output expansion. However, backyard farming and infrastructure problems, especially transport costs, will continue to hamper the sector's growth. This paradox is well illustrated in the island of Mindanao: the government and rebel group's recent peace deal could inspire investors' confidence and develop the region's strong agricultural potential. However, lingering issues regarding business environment and security issues in Mindanao will still be a break to the development of the island.
