CPLA_final1Nome do evento: Cleaning Products Latin America 2015

Data: 23 a 25 de Junho de 2015

Data da apresentação: quarta-feira (24) às 15h, Hotel Pullman São Paulo Ibirapuera

Sobre o evento: Realizada pela primeira vez no Brasil, a Cleaning Products Latin America 2015 abre um espaço para que os principais profissionais do segmento se atualizem e discutam sobre as tendências mundiais que estão afetando seus negócios em casa. O programa oferece um olhar aprofundado sobre as últimas inovações e avanços tecnológicos que vão afetar os negócios no mercado latino-americano.

Sobre a apresentação: Ian Bell, analista-chefe de Home Care da Euromonitor, apresenta “O futuro dos cuidados com o lar (América Latina): O ritmo e a forma das coisas para chegar ao Consumo Médio Global”. A América Latina é a casa para o consumo médio mundial em cuidados com o lar. Isto não é dizer que o mercado latino americano é mediano; de fato, é o contrário. A região está se modernizando em ritmo acelerado e avançando no gasto com os cuidados com o lar e o formato dos produtos são uma clara indicação de que a região está migrando para uma posição mais madura. Dito isto, evidências de outros setores sugerem que maturidade não chega sem problemas; a armadilha da classe média precisa ser evitada e o desenvolvimento dos produtos precisam se manter com a evolução de forma ampla na sua cadeia de abastecimento (não linear).

A Brighter Future for RadioShack in Mexico

Amanda BoulierAnalyst Insight by Amanda Boulier - Research Analyst

View Amanda Boulier's profile on LinkedIn

On March 27, Grupo Gigante announced it would be purchasing the approximately 250 outlets of RadioShack México for a total of US$32 million dollars from RadioShack Corp. the owner of the electronics specialist chain in the United States and elsewhere.  Grupo Gigante previously had partial ownership of the retailer in Mexico but sold its stake in the joint venture in 2008 in the context of a challenging macroeconomic outlook.

RadioShack’s struggles, ultimately leading to bankruptcy and the closing of thousands of outlets in the US, are well-known.  In recent years the retailer found itself with an overburdened geographic footprint and an underdeveloped internet retailing presence.  RadioShack México, however, operates a smaller network of stores in a retailing environment in which internet sales are still nascent.  This gives the chain a chance to learn from its US mistakes and develop a proactive strategy of e-commerce investment and controlled outlet expansion before the market dynamics in Mexico evolve, in contrast to the reactionary position the brand adopted in the US.

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?

The ‘Thrill of Thrift’: From Circular Economics to Online Bargain Hunting in the Americas

Daphne KasrielAnalyst Insight by Daphne Kasriel-Alexander - Consumer Trends Consultant

View Daphne Kasriel's profile on LinkedIn

Buying used, recycled or re-manufactured items has no longer to do with saving up. For millions of consumers throughout the Americas, it is all about taking part in the new so-called circular economy, which implies the re-entry of previously used items in the production/sales cycle. Consumers are not alone in their ‘thrill of thrift’ – firms have joined them, forging alliances with their customers and adding value to used items. Meanwhile, the internet offers an unprecedented window of opportunity for bargain hunters, who shop with near-impossible discounts.

Key trends

  • The new clothing cycle;
  • Virtual communities;
  • The new outlet shops.

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.
