New Market Research Report: Ukraine Food & Drink Report Q4 2014

Recently published research from Business Monitor International, "Ukraine Food & Drink Report Q4 2014", is now available at Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/27/2014 -- The outlook for Ukraine's economy has deteriorated rapidly since the publication of our Food & Drink report for the beginning of 2014 . Our Country Risk team believes that Ukraine will experience a deep recession in 2014, and forecasts near-stagnant economic growth through to 2018. Recession in 2014 will be driven by the devaluation of the hryvnia and major trade disruption due to the elevated risk of a military escalation with Russia. Soaring inflation, substantially tighter government spending, diminished purchasing power and extremely tight credit conditions will also contribute to the dismal economic outlook.

The slowdown has already begun, with recently released data indicating that the economy contracted by 1.1% in the first quarter of 2014. Soaring inflation, substantially tighter government spending, diminished purchasing power and extremely tight credit conditions all point towards a sharp recession in 2014, and we expect real GDP to contract by 4.1% this year. While the IMF loan may help to instil some confidence in Ukraine's debt servicing abilities over the coming quarters, the associated austerity measures and economic reforms will push the economy into contraction.
