Procter & Gamble Selling Pet Food Brands to Mars is a Win for both Companies and Consumers

 

Procter and Gamble selling its pet care brands to Mars, Inc. is a smart move for both companies. Not only has P&G faced share erosion in recent years, but it also recalled several pet food brands in 2013. Mars, on the other hand, already has strong brand identity, a history of integrating new products into its existing product portfolio and has taken their brands into emerging markets, something P&G failed to do. This move is also a win for consumers, who should benefit from added competitiveness in the pet food market.

Catering to the “Golden Traveller” – Accessible and Respite Tourism

 

The global population is ageing, with 10 percent of the population reaching the age of 65 by 2018. To cater to this ageing population, travel and tourism companies need to take extra steps including having medical staff on a tour as a precaution and to offer peace of mind for older travelers. Need-based travel offers tremendous potential for tourism companies as it caters to groups that rarely travel at all.

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.

Using Health and Wellness to Target the Ageing Global Population

 

The age of the global population is on the rise, opening up massive opportunities for global food and drink companies offering products with health and wellness benefits to older consumers. These benefits fall into four major positions: cardiovascular health, bone and joint health, brain health and vision health. By targeting these four positions, food and drink companies can help boost the stagnant fortified/functional segment and help aging consumers live healthier lifestyles.

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.
