Brazil's Business Environment: Consumption in Economic Slowdown

250_brazilBusiness-v1.0On the surface, Brazil looks like an attractive market. It is the seventh largest global economy and has a population of 200 million, with high consumer expenditure and high demand for commodities.
But Brazilians are spending less, industrial confidence is deteriorating, and inflation is rising, meaning a future of slow growth and economic recovery.

Consumer goods companies operating in Brazil need to adapt their strategy to integrate the global market place. What are the reasons behind this slowdown and how can organisations work it to their advantage?

Import Restrictions and Tissue and Hygiene Retail in Argentina

Horacio LarghiAnalyst Insight by Horacio Larghi - Contributing Analyst

In January 2015, Argentinean news outlets had much to say about the shortage of tampons in the South American country. The feminine hygiene product is not produced locally and the two principle manufacturers, Johnson & Johnson and Kimberly-Clark, which dominate the Argentinean market with nearly 90% of all sales, import their brands from Brazil, as well as from far-away Czech Republic. The government-imposed import barriers are the reason for the tampon shortage.

 

Reasons behind restrictions and daunting task of getting dollars into the country

Argentina’s external debt is denominated in US dollars, which stands at US$140 billion. The country’s reserves currently stand at less than US$30 billion, which is less than the cost of six months of imports. In October 2015, a bond payment of approximately US$4 billion will be due.

The situation, however, is exceptionally complicated. An interest payment made on 31 March 2015 will most likely not reach most bondholders, as US District Court Judge Thomas Griesa has barred the country from paying any interest on bonds restructured after the 2002 default, until it settles with US hedge funds that rejected a bond swap. This disagreement is at the root of the country’s latest default in July 2014. Therefore, it is essential that more dollars enter the country than exit, which explains the import restrictions.

Challenges and Opportunities in Targeting the Senior Consumer

250_seniorConsumer-v1.0The senior market is a lucrative market to explore. The population over 60 stood at 912 million in 2014, representing 12.6 percent of the global population. By 2030, this segment will account for 18 percent, reaching 1.5 billion globally. While China is the fastest growing ageing market with over 60s forecast to grow by more than 46 percent between 2014 and 2030, Japan has the oldest population, with a massive 33 percent aged over 60. Japan is a model on the impact of this demographic shift, showing the effects of different methods of governmental intervention and product development opportunities.

Key findings:

  • E-health, home assistance and elderly-friendly services will drive technology developments in the senior market, with health being the most dynamic consumer expenditure category through 2030.

  • Efficacy and natural features remain key features when it comes to marketing beauty products to the over 60s.

  • Demand for luxury goods focusing on heritage and craftsmanship is popular among senior consumers.

  • As senior consumers usually invest in timeless, quality clothing, an older population will have a negative impact on sales volume in the apparel market.

  • Presbyopia represents a key market driver in eyewear.

Russia: Current Challenges and Long Term Opportunities in Retail Tissue and Hygiene

Lidia-ShuktomovaAnalyst Insight by Lidia Shuktomova - Research Analyst

With ongoing political and economic woes, 2015 is expected to be a challenging year for the Russian marketplace. Euromonitor International projects that in 2015 Russia’s real GDP will decrease by 3.8% and consumer expenditure will fall by 4.6%, in constant 2014 prices. As a result, many Russians are expected to trade down. In 2015, retail sales of tissue and hygiene in Russia are projected to see only 1% rise in constant value (US$ fixed 2014 exchange rate) to achieve US$4.4 billion. However, volume sales for many categories are expected to register stronger growth, reflective of weakened purchasing power and bargain shopping.

While challenging in the short term, Russia’s downturn creates a window of opportunity for domestic brands to capture consumer attention, build customer loyalty and drive domestic industry growth, helped by expanding local production and improved supply chain.

Ukraine: Weak Domestic Supply Chain Worsens Plight of Retail Tissue and Hygiene Industry

Maryna NazarenkoAnalyst Insight by Maryna Nazarenko - Contributing Analyst

The political upheaval of late 2013, escalation of the conflict with Russia, coupled with current political instability, significant budget deficit and weakening banking sector, have had an unfavourable impact on consumer confidence and spending power in Ukraine. In 2015, retail sales of tissue and hygiene in Ukraine are expected to see, once again, a value decline of 1% in constant terms (US$ fixed 2014 exchange rate). Volume is projected to decline at a faster rate across all but essential categories, like toilet paper, reflective of price increases across product categories to cover the cost of imports and subsequent decline in consumer consumption. 

While a difficult operating environment opens up a window of opportunity for domestic manufacturers, in view of significant price increases on imported brands and popular resentment that has led many Ukrainians to boycott products imported from Russia, taking advantage of this opportunity is not an easy task. Weak domestic supply chain and shortage of raw materials, coupled with unstable political situation, have hampered investment in local production, presenting a significant challenge to growth of domestic industry.
