High Income Households by City 2013

Emi_US-100000-v1.0-01We release a 2013 update to previously published datagraphic of high income households (defined as household with annual income of at least US$100,000). Over one year, the number of high income households increased by around one million to reach 105 million in 2013, and New York overtook Tokyo as the world's key centre of wealth (mainly as a result of changes in currency exchange rate fluctuations, as numbers are reported in current prices). In fact, the US dominate the top 20 city list of high income households with only seven cities coming from other parts of the world (namely, three cities in Japan, two in Australia and Europe). The geographic concentration of rich households remains astonishing: for example, New York accounts for less than 0.3% of the world's population as of 2013, yet 3.4% of households with an annual income of US$100,000.

Gender Influences Fragrances Prospects in Emerging Markets


Women’s fragrances have traditionally ruled the market ahead of men’s, including in terms of product availability. However, absolute growth forecasts reveal that emerging markets like Mexico and Argentina will generate more value in men’s fragrances over 2013-2018. This indicates an opportunity for industry players to step up men’s variety, where prospects compare well with those of women’s. Middle Eastern markets, essentially Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will lead in premium unisex fragrances.

Gin O’clock: English Gin Breaks Away From its Core Markets

Jeremy_Cunnington0Analyst Insight by Jeremy Cunnington - Senior Alcoholic Drinks Analyst

View Jeremy Cunnington's profile on LinkedIn

Consumption of English Gin, excluding consumption in India which consists entirely of local economy brands, has been dominated by three core markets: the US; Spain; and the UK. In 2013, excluding India, these three markets accounted for 66% of global category volume sales. Additionally, these three markets were the only three to see volumes exceed six million litres in each during 2013. There are, however, signs that this is starting to change, with English Gin gaining popularity in a number of underdeveloped Western European markets.

Within the three core markets, there has been a well-established trend towards the rising popularity of super-premium and premium gins. This has not led to huge growth in the category in these markets, but rather a switch in emphasis away from standard and economy brands, such as Gordon’s and Larios, to more upmarket ones, such as Hendrick’s and Bombay Sapphire.

Beverage Digest reports that the actual flavors will be: Pepsi Homemade, Pepsi Homemade Vanilla, Pepsi Homemade Wild Cherry, Sierra Mist Homemade, Sierra Mist Homemade Peach, and Sierra Mist Homemade Cranberry.

Ready for Rio? How brands can reach the two Brazils

BE8B73197D324DDBA30257F791D94536.ashxReblogged from David Fuller's original article in Sports Business Daily

With Brazil’s presidential race heading toward a runoff election later this month, Rio 2016 has taken a back seat in Brazil to issues of politics and economics. There is also a stark contrast between the excitement of Brazil hosting two global sporting events back-to-back and the current economic climate. But no matter the issues of today, one thing is for certain: The Olympic cauldron will be lit on Aug. 5, 2016.

This raises the question: What will be the long-term impact of hosting this year’s FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games — for brands, for citizens and for the Brazilian economy?
With much of the world’s focus fixated on Brazil, GlideSlope sought to better understand the perceptions and influence of the recent World Cup on the upcoming Olympics. More specifically, we wanted to learn what effect Brazil’s hosting of these events has on the Brazilian business community and the extent to which the World Cup is a predictor of how businesses in Brazil may engage with the 2016 Olympic Games.
