Machinery Production: Growing Specialisation in Asia

 Machinery Production in Asia

Download as pdf

Major Asian countries are all specializing in a particular segment of machinery production. In China construction machinery dominates and is expected to reach over 42% of overall machinery production value by 2017. The industry will be driven by growing domestic construction. In Japan robots, semiconductor and materials machinery will hold strong positions with over 45% of output attributed for this segment in 2017. In the meantime, modernization of Indian agriculture facilitates growing demand for agricultural machinery. Finally, metallurgy machinery will account for almost a half of machinery production in Indonesia by 2017.

An economic milestone will be reached this year as China overtakes the USA to become the world’s largest economy in PPP terms. Beneath this headline there remain important differences between the two countries with China significantly lagging in key indicators such as income, consumer expenditure and car ownership. In terms of savings, the difference between the two is notably narrower indicative of China’s entrenched household savings habit and the relaxed attitude to credit in the USA.

Mobile Revenues Prevail in Emerging Economies


Download as pdf

Mobile telephony continues to impose its dominance on the global digital landscape, increasing its relative share of total telecom revenues over 2008-2013. However, mobile’s lead is especially apparent in the developing world, where consumers tend to be more reliant on handheld devices for most of their telecom intake. In Nigeria, for example, mobile represented over 95.0% of telecom revenues in 2013. Opportunities to market m-commerce offerings are especially strong in mobile-heavy markets.

Forecasting Expansion of High Income Households


download as pdf

The US cities will lead the way into adding the largest number of households with annual disposable income US$100,000+ over 2013-2018, with seven of them on the top 25 list. Yet, the most rapid growth in high income households will come from developing cities. Besides Chinese metropolises, which will see a rapid income growth rebuffing the worst of the economic slowdown, cities in Russia and Central Asia are also forecast to demonstrate a rise of over 60% in the number of high income households.

A World Cup Boost for Brazil's Foodservice Industry?

World Cup Consumer Foodservice Boost for Brazil

download as pdf

Not surprisingly given the unfathomable investments required to stage the tournament, discussions of return on investment are never far away for a country hosting the FIFA World Cup. For foodservice operators, the effects of what amounts to a month-long national party on sales would seem obvious, yet how much of this is simply substitution? By looking at the historical impact of both the FIFA World Cup and the UEFA European Football Championship on host nations over the last fifteen years, we can see that the impact on foodservice demand is mixed at best. Whilst highly-social categories like bars, pubs, and cafes can generally expect to do well, fast food operators hoping for a World Cup surge may find themselves disappointed.

Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo: A Tale of Two Cities During the World Cup


Download as pdf

The FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 is expected to give the country’s tourism a welcome boost, with international arrivals expected to see an uptick of 15% over 2013/2014 to surpass the 7 million mark. Average spend per trip is forecast to increase by 11%, as football-loving nations like Germany, Italy, Spain, France, the US and UK spend longer in the destination to watch the beautiful game and soak up the atmosphere.

Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro will take centre stage, however, Rio suffers from constrained hotel supply with 1,794 outlets to Sao Paulo’s 3,797, despite enjoying 50% more international visitors, and this pushes up average daily room rates. Euromonitor International predicts that the real winner of the World Cup 2014 will be Airbnb with already 6% of its global footprint in Brazil, and half of its listings based in Rio, so the peer-to-peer private rentals brand is ready to pick up the overspill from Rio’s hotels during the tournament.

Population Profiles of World Cup Hosts

Populations of Recent World Cup Host Countries


Download as pdf

Brazil falls in-between the previous two World Cup hosts in terms of its demographic trends. The age structure of Brazil’s population is one of its key strengths. In 2014, 32.8% of the population were aged 20-39, contrasting sharply with Germany’s 26.0% in its host year. However, Brazil’s low fertility rate, which unlike 2010’s host South Africa is well below replacement rate, means that the country is going through an ageing process, as can be seen by the narrow base of the population pyramid.

How India's Business Environment Compares to Other Key Asian Markets


Download as pdf

As part of the key BRIC markets alongside Brazil, Russia and China, India is potentially a key focus of investment for many companies. However aspects of its business environment can be challenging compared with other major markets in Asia such as Taiwan and South Korea. India’s uptake of technology is growing rapidly, resulting in a ranking of 68th out of 144 economies in the Networked Readiness Index 2013, average for the region. Yet it ranks very poorly in terms of its political stability.
