Fast Market Research recommends "Nigeria Food & Drink Report Q4 2014" from Business Monitor International, now available
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/23/2014 -- Despite revised data showing that the Nigerian economy grew more slowly over the last three years than the original figures suggested, we have not altered our forecast of 7.0% real GDP growth for 2014 and 7.4% for 2015. The positive impact of agriculture means that this important sector should contribute strongly to private consumption growth.
Similarly to much of the African continent, Nigeria is experiencing a growing middle class, accompanied by economic growth. The increasing spending power of this middle class is being targeted by multinationals who are continuing to invest in the country's food and drink sector.
The long-term outlook remains very bright. We are forecasting average annual real GDP growth of 7. 0 % over the next 10 years, and expect the Nigerian government to prioritise investment in vital infrastructure over our forecast period and beyond , which will greatly benefit the food and drinks sector, as well as the grocery retail sector .
