Deflation in Advanced Economies: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Analyst Insight by Media Eghbal - Head of Countries' Analysis

View Media Eghbal's profile on LinkedIn

Since 2014, or the threat of negative inflation (falling prices for goods and services) has been a persistent problem for some of the world’s largest developed economies. Euromonitor International forecasts that 16 countries globally (at the time of writing) will register deflation overall in 2015. These include Italy and Spain, the third and fourth largest economies in the eurozone. A further 44 countries worldwide are projected to post inflation rates of less than 1.0% to zero in 2015, including France, Germany, UK and the USA.

The sharp decline in world oil prices (and the consequent fall in energy and petrol prices) since 2014 is a major driver of this trend, while in some countries such as the UK, food price falls have also contributed. A stronger pound and US dollar have made imports cheaper for domestic consumers in the UK and USA, bringing further downward pressure on consumer prices. There has been much scaremongering about the spectre of deflation but in some situations, decreasing prices can be a sign of a competitive economy. Understanding the economic context of deflation is key.

Bravofly Rumbo Challenges Global OTA Players in European Market

Angelo RossiniAnalyst Insight by Angelo Rossini - Online Travel Analyst

View Angelo Rossini's profile on LinkedIn

In the online travel agency sector, which is seeing steady growth but also increasing competition, some regional players with ambitious expansion plans are emerging in Europe and Asia.

The Bravofly Rumbo Group has, in the last three years, turned from a national into a leading regional player in the OTA sector in Europe. Its recent acquisition of Lastminute.com, a popular OTA brand in Europe, gives the company the opportunity to expand its sales from online air bookings to the more profitable online hotel bookings. To continue to grow, however, the Bravofly Rumbo Group will need to be able to compete successfully with the two global giants in this sector, Expedia and Priceline, which have been constantly growing over the past 10 years at the expense of other travel intermediaries, but also of direct bookings, through being at the forefront of technological innovation.

SAB Miller Enters the UK Craft Beer Market with Meantime Brewing Company Acquisition

 

SAB Miller recently announced its acquisition of London-based Meantime Brewing Company, fitting perfectly with the company’s strategy in Western Europe and the UK of focusing on premium, high-end products. The deal mirrors the 2011 Molson Coors acquisition of Sharp’s brewery, and SAB Miller will be looking for a similar uplift in volumes but it will have to be aware of the image of a multinational player owning a craft brewery.

The UK Election: Now the Real Work Begins

Notwithstanding David Cameron’s return to Downing Street, the impact of the UK economy’s return to growth remains to be felt by large swathes of consumers. Much of the growth has been driven by an increase in population, and as a result the figures look less positive when looked at in per capita terms. In particular, low productivity growth has meant that the reduction in unemployment has failed to lead to increases in per capita disposable income.
