Australia to Fuel Liquified Natural Gas Competition in the East

Giedrius RudisAnalyst Insight by Giedrius Rudis - Industrial Analyst

According to some estimates, Australia is a few years away from becoming the world’s largest exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG). The country’s increasing capacity will inevitably intensify the level of competition in the global LNG market. The most threatened countries will be Qatar, Malaysia, Indonesia and Russia, while those to benefit the most will include Japan and South Korea.

Does Urban Export Imply City Development?

UgneSaltenyteAnalyst Insight by Ugne Saltenyte - City Analyst

Urban exports can be seen both as a factor in a city’s economic growth and an indicator of its stage of urban development. Generally, expanding export activities contribute to the economic advancement of urban economies. Different profiles of exported goods and services in developing and developed metropolises also affect wealth disparities of local consumer across world's cities.

Will the Stand-Up Pouch Save Packaged Soup?

Daniel GrimseyAnalyst Insight by Daniel Grimsey, Research Analyst

View Daniel Grimsey's profile on LinkedIn

Soup consumption is flat around the world, with the category recording volume growth of less than 1% globally in 2013. While there are some growth opportunities across the developing world, soup volume sales have been on a downward trajectory across most of the Western world for half a decade. This is particularly the case for the largest category, canned/preserved soup, which is in decline across much of Europe and in Australia. The forecast performance for canned/preserved soup is even less promising, with a value CAGR decline of 2% expected in Spain, France and Italy, 5% in Australia and close to 6% in the Netherlands.

What to Expect in 2014: Six Key Statistics

View Sarah Boumphrey's profile on LinkedIn

What will 2014 bring? It looks to be a better year in economic terms than 2013 but risks remain (once again) on the downside. Key challenges to look out for in 2014 include the Fed taper and the flow-on effects on emerging markets; and the continuing impact of lingering unemployment and stagnant incomes in many advanced economies. The oil price looks likely to remain around the same level as it will end 2013 – on or around US$100 per barrel. Real GDP growth is set to accelerate in seven of the G8 (Japan is the exception) and in India and Russia, although not in China or Brazil where it will remain at 2013 levels. The 2014 consumer in advanced economies will begin to emerge from the cautiousness of recent years but will not be forgetting recession-learned habits in a hurry. In emerging markets much depends on how the major economies withstand the taper, but the expected increase in disposable income will continue to strengthen the numbers in the middle classes – albeit at a slower pace than in recent years.

Is there an Over-the-Counter Solution for Air Pollution?

Daniel GrimseyAnalyst Insight by Daniel Grimsey - Research Analyst

View Daniel Grimsey's profile on LinkedIn

Air pollution is a major problem across the Asia Pacific region, responsible for over a million premature deaths each year. Consumers are understandably highly concerned and looking for solutions, with Vitamin C and Vitamin E pills increasingly being embraced for the purpose.

Where Breathing Is Hazardous To Your Health

The economies of Asia may have boomed in recent years, but this has not come without a price tag. Much of the cost is being paid by the Asian environment, with pollution becoming a key issue across Asia.  Studies now indicate that the ubiquitous smog of Beijing and elsewhere across northern China is cutting over half a decade from the average life expectancy in the region, with other studies claiming air pollution was linked to 1.2 million deaths in China in 2010 alone. Other studies meanwhile suggest that the “Asian Brown Cloud” is responsible for the deaths of half a million Indians each year. Air quality amongst much of China and India is now considered either “hazardous” or “very unhealthy.”  Consumers across the Asia Pacific region are understandably highly concerned about pollution – according to a poll by the Pew Research Centre, 47% of Chinese consider air pollution as a “very big problem” in 2013 up from 36% in 2012 - and are searching for solutions.

White Paper: Understanding the 21st Century Traveller

21st Century TravellerIn a follow-up to the Global Trends Report released earlier this month, we have released a new white paper authored by Caroline Bremner, Head of Travel and Tourism.

One of the most notable trends amongst 21st century travellers is an increase in online bookings. The US and Western Europe remained the largest online travel markets in 2012, with online travel sales reaching US$185 billion and US $170 billion, respectively.  These same markets will grow the least from 2012-2017. However, BRIC markets are each expected to grow between 10-20% during that same forecast period.

 Mobile technology has greatly affected travel bookings and will continue to grow, driving the increasingly important real-time social conversation between the newest travelling consumer, the millennial, and consumers and travel brands. According to Pew Research Center, 81% of US consumers between the ages of 25-34 have smartphones and 37% own a tablet.  Marketing strategies must adapt to incorporate gaming, apps and user-generated content to reach this generation, since they are sceptical of traditional marketing.

'Health' and 'Clean Label' Drive Sales in Global Oils and Fats

EMI_oilsFats-v1 2
Download as pdf

Globally, Asia is the most dynamic market in 2013, driven mainly by China. Clean label and health continue to drive oils and fats markets, but many heavily rely on cooking/animal and highly processed fats. Volume sales for healthy, olive oils remain centred in the Mediterranean and Australia, with declining cooking fat sales a prevailing trend in developed markets. In emerging markets, growth should continue to be driven by health, although complicated by rising import prices for healthier oils.
