Analyst Insight by Ina Dawer - Senior India Analyst
Energy drinks shows a promising future, with manufacturers such as Red Bull and Monster now looking beyond pubs and restaurants for promotions and advertisements. Euromonitor International’s forthcoming research on non-alcoholic drinks in India reveals that energy drinks’ off-trade volumes are forecast to grow by11% year-on-year between 2014 and 2019. This is a notable acceleration on the 8% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) predicted for 2013-2018 in our previous year’s research. The stronger expected growth comes after quantifying the impact of changes in “soft” demand drivers like increased marketing promotions and product launches.

Event: FoodNavigator Asia Infant Formula Forum
Date: 21 January 2015
Time: 11:00 (UTC+08:00)
Speaker: Daniel Grimsey – Senior Research Analyst
Presentation Topic: Infant Formula - Red flags and white gold: Marketing infant formula in Asia-Pacific
Presentation Description: Few industry topics in Asia-Pacific are as polarising as the infant formula debate. On the one side, manufacturers are eager to tap into the region’s vast market to take safe, nutritious products to Asia; on the other, breastfeeding advocates have the ear of the regulators, effectively blocking the active promotion of formula in many countries. So where is the middle ground for ethical industry players to compete on a level playing field—both against commercial rivals and their detractors? What can Asia’s regulators learn from the experience of other countries? And is breast really best for all Asia’s populations? On January 21 at 11am (China) FoodNavigator-Asia will invite a panel of experts that includes industry players, regulators and nutritionists to answer these questions and many others on this important subject.

Analyst Insight by Manushi Jian - Economist
While the formation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), effective from 1st January 2015, sounds like an epoch-making historic bloc, it is unlikely to stir much attention from the Western world with unclear economic advantages. The EEU, includes Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia (with Kyrgyzstan expected to join later this year), covers over 15.0% of the world’s land area and hopes to rival the European Union (EU). Yet its biggest weakness is the absence of Ukraine – the second largest post-Soviet state – making it rather difficult to compete with the EU.
