China’s Rail System Drives Global Transport Growth

The global transport sector will grow by 29 percent from 2014 to 2017 with a majority of this growth coming from China’s road and rail industries as a result of a Chinese government stimulus program specifically for infrastructure improvements. In the coming years, China’s main transportation system will continue to be roads but the consistently improving rail system has higher punctuality, lower prices and comfort. By 2017, Euromonitor predicts China’s rail industry to reach sales of US$ 124 Billion and become the largest in the world.

Copper Surplus Impacting Economies in Asia and Latin America

 

Copper prices have been trading at close to 25 percent below their 2011 peak due to a surplus. China’s economic slowdown is expected to impact copper demand as the country consumes 40 percent of the world’s supply and global copper production has increased as well. Chile, Peru and Australia rely on copper exports to China, and without China buying copper, it may weaken their economies.

B2B Market Attractiveness Evaluation - How to Size Opportunities and Reduce Risk

250_B2BmarketAttractiveness_blue-v1.0When compared to a business-to-consumer sales model, the business-to-business sales process is longer and of higher average value with a smaller number of buyers. B2B buyers are quicker to react to changes in the economy with statistics showing that during an economic crisis, B2B purchases drop more severely than personal expenditures.  International companies selling products such as raw materials, machinery, transportation or other B2B goods and services must develop a systematic framework serving their medium and long term company strategy. The B2B Market Attractiveness Index is a composite index providing one figure ratings for each B2B market segment using a predefined formula on a large set of data.  This rating can be used to evaluate country risks and opportunities. 

For example, a company that produces electronic components in eight different countries within five different industries is indirectly being exposed to over 40 different B2B markets with all of these markets vital to the company’s success.  Utilizing the index will help a company identify opportunities in multiple industries and geographies.

Car Producers in Russia Hit a Speed Bump but the Industry’s Outlook Remains Positive

Justinas_LiuimaAnalyst Insight by Justinas Liuima - Industry Analyst

Russia’s new car market is one of the fastest growing in Europe and is set to outgrow Germany by 2020, although the crisis in Crimea is likely to hamper overall growth in 2014. Nevertheless, some of the producers outsourcing locally-produced components could even benefit from the plummeting rouble. The long-term industry outlook also remains positive as first-tier suppliers are planning investments in Russia in order to improve the component supply chain.

What Impact Would a Ban on Trade with Russia Have on Germany?

Giedrius RudisAnalyst Insight by Giedrius Rudis - Industrial Analyst

On 17 March, the EU and the US announced sanctions on certain Russian and Ukrainian individuals. Both sides of the Atlantic threatened to take further action if Russia proceeded with its plan to annex Crimea. Some analysts even fear that the dispute could evolve into an import/export ban. What impact would this dismal scenario have on Germany, Russia’s single largest trading partner?

Investors Look to Other Countries as Wages Increase in China

 Capture With Ruta Sukyte, Industrial Research Analyst

China’s wages are increasing and the world is looking for another country able to manufacture goods at lower costs. India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam could all potentially take away manufacturing jobs from China. Investors are not only looking for countries offering low wages but also good infrastructure, and all four countries meet those requirements. Vietnam, for example, is already producing the bulk of Samsung’s electronics. India already leads the outsourcing market globally and is the second most populated country in the world. In the future, China will likely continue to lose ground in manufacturing outsourcing to other developing countries.

Plummeting Rouble Threatens Russia’s Heavy Industries

The political tension in Ukraine has led to a significant drop in the value of the rouble, which has fallen by 11% against the euro since January 2014. The exchange rate stood at around RUB50 to the euro during the first days of March. Europe is one of Russia’s main import partners and further devaluation of the rouble will increase fears of snowballing import prices and inflation. The growing tension and possible trade restrictions from the US and Europe pose a threat to the country’s import-dependent markets - machine tools, electric engines and automotive parts - these being important components in Russia’s main heavy industries.

Can Fracking Succeed Outside the US?

 

The shale gas industry is revitalizing manufacturing and driving economic growth in the US. In 2014, attention is turning to other economies. Interest is strong in Europe, where energy prices remain high, and in China, which has become the world’s largest oil importer. However, many problems must be overcome for fracking to become a viable energy alternative, and shale is unlikely to be an option on a global scale in the short-term.

Airline Industry Sees Recovery in 2014

 

The airline industry was particularly impacted by the global economic downturn but the industry is expected to reach a profit of US$20 Billion in 2014. Lower oil prices expected in 2014 and overall airline passengers on the upswing with global sporting events such as the World Cup in Brazil drawing more international travelers are all impacting profit growth. Despite the positives, net profits will reach only 3 percent of total revenue for the airline industry in 2014.
