Recently Released Market Study: Australia Food & Drink Report Q2 2013

New Food research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/11/2013 -- The dour outlook for employment forms the backbone of our downbeat growth forecast for private consumption and imports in Australia, as we expect households to cut back amid negligible disposable income growth. Thus, we are forecasting a slowdown in private consumption growth and expect import growth to record a contraction in 2013. This contraction in imports will, in turn, allow Australia's current account to return to surplus in 2014 and begin the process of reducing the external indebtedness that has built up close to 40 years of deficit. This is likely to leave our food and drink sales growth forecasts relatively subdued in the medium term. Even if economic conditions take a turn for the better, the shift of consumption habits towards private labels in Australia is likely to remain firmly entrenched over the coming years as a growing number of consumers acknowledge private labels as a very compelling alternative to proprietary branded goods.
