Russia Retail Report Q1 2013

The Russian Retail Report examines the long-term potential of the local consumer market, but flags shortterm

concerns about the impact on Russia's economic outlook of the risk of capital flight and

overdependence on oil.

The report examines how best to maximise returns in the Russian retail market while minimising

investment risk, and also explores the impact of the ongoing crisis in the country's main export market,

Europe, on the Russian consumer and on the ability of producers and exporters to realise returns in the

short term.

The report also analyses the growth and risk management strategies being employed by the leading

players in the Russian retail sector, as they seek to maximise the growth opportunities offered by the local

market.

Russian per capita consumer spending is forecast to increase by 44% between 2013 and 2016, compared

with a regional growth average of 33%. The country comes third in BMI's Central and Eastern Europe

(CEE) Retail Risk/Reward Ratings, although it underperforms significantly for Risk.

Among all retail categories, mass grocery retail (MGR) will be the outperformer through to 2016 in

growth terms, with sales forecast to grow much faster than overall food sales throughout the forecast

period, by almost 132% to US$231.46bn by 2016. This would take MGR's share of the overall food

market from 42.1% in 2013 to 80.8% by 2016.

In the competitive arena, BMI sees upside potential in the fact that the Russian government

has committed to spending billions on infrastructure over the next 10 years, particularly

railroads and highways, which should translate to better logistics for expanding retailers.

Over the last quarter, BMI has revised the following forecasts/views:

BMI's below-consensus forecast for Russia's 2012 real GDP growth of 3.4% appears to be well

placed as leading indicators point towards a further slowdown in economic growth. We have

revised down our forecast for 2013 real GDP growth in Russia to 3.4% from 3.6% previously.

This comes on the heels of a stark shift by the central bank towards monetary policy tightening,

a bias we expect to remain intact over the coming months.

BMI's expectation for private consumption to weaken going into 2013 underpins our view for

weaker headline growth. Private consumption has been a key driver of economic growth in

Russia over the past two years. Falling unemployment and rising disposable incomes have seen

household consumption growth average 7.0% year-on-year (y-o-y) in H112, up from 6.1% in the

same period of 2011. However, going forward, tighter access to credit, via higher interest rates

and the likelihood of more prudent lending practices by banks, will translate to weaker

household consumption.

Leading indicators suggest that these dynamics have already begun to feed through to weaker

consumption - real retail trade slowed into H212, coming in at 4.4% y-o-y in August, down

substantially from the 7.4 % racked up back in January. As a result of these combined dynamics,

we forecast private consumption to increase by 4.2% in 2013, down from our forecast of 4.9% in

2012.

  • Australia Retail Report Q2 2016
    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 64
    BMI View: The continuing slump of the Australian dollar will hurt the affordability of imported goods across all retail sub-sectors. Despite that, around 30 midmarket and luxury retailers are planning to enter the Australian market in 2016, on hopes that the rebound of national currency will add a premium on overall expected household spending. The real economic growth will exceed the 2% mark and unemployment rate is bound to decline, however, we expect The Reserve Bank o......
  • New Zealand Retail Report Q2 2016
    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 59
    BMI View: New Zealand will see positive, but not spectacular growth in the retail sector in local nominal currency terms as the economy continues to grow at a reasonable pace. However, because of expected weakness for the New Zealand dollar, the sector will contract substantially in US dollar terms. Currency weakness bodes well for tourism and, by extension, the hotel and restaurant sub-sectors. It also means that New Zealand consumers will be less inclined to travel and ......
  • Peru Retail Report Q2 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: Household spending is set to continue to show strong growth in 2016, rising by a little over 7.5% year-on-year (y-o-y) in local currency terms, although in USD terms it will register a decline due to the falling value of the PEN. Peru is expected to have 80 shopping malls by the end of the year, which, together with a growing e-commerce sector, increasing affluence and credit availability, will support further growth in non-essentials spending during the year.......
  • Spain Retail Report Q1 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI View: For the first time in five years of recession, Spain's economy recorded positive growth in 2014, rising by 1.4%. We are expecting growth in 2015 to reach 2.7%. This return to positive growth is helping to ease the high levels of unemployment which in turn is stabilising the retail market. Households are gradually becoming more confident owing to rising disposable incomes, and this will help to boost real sales in the country. Spain has continued to recover......
  • United Kingdom Retail Report Q2 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 57
    BMI View: While the outlook for the UK economy is stronger than the rest of the eurozone, with consumption benefitting from lower fuel prices, two major developments will curb the outlook for retailers in 2016. We believe that interest rates will begin to rise in 2016, and this will have a disproportionately large impact on UK consumers, due to the high cost of housing in the country, resulting in households potentially diverting earnings away from discretionary spending ......
  • United States Retail Report Q2 2016
    Published: 27-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 68
    BMI View: The US retail sector is continuing its revival, as the economic recovery is centred around consumption. Lower oil prices, low inflation, tightening labour market and low interest rates are all fuelling household spending. Growth is coming from online sales in particular, as e-commerce continues its explosive trajectory. While interest rates are set to rise, this will be a gradual process. We therefore expect these trends to continue to play out, with opportuniti......
  • United Arab Emirates Retail Report Q1 2016
    Published: 20-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI View: We retain optimistic growth forecasts for the UAE's retail market. The next four years leading to Dubai Expo 2020 will give a boost to the economic diversification, as gargantuan infrastructural and private projects pick up steam. Consumer confidence is likely to remain intact and inbound tourism is set to persist, both of which will continue rewarding retailers with unparalleled opportunities until 2019. The UAE is highly reliant on oil revenue; as a result, th......
  • Venezuela Retail Report Q1 2016
    Published: 20-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 60
    BMI View: We continue to have a gloomy outlook for the Venezuelan retail sector over the medium term. The country's economic troubles, including a low oil price, high inflation and weak exchange rate, as well as the government's highly interventionist stance, will continue to dampen consumer and investor confidence in the country. We forecast that total household spending will reach VEF7,342.1bn in 2016, equivalent to USD1978.7bn. By 2019 these figures should be VEF......
  • Croatia Retail Report Q1 2016
    Published: 20-Jan-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 64
    BMI View: Croatia's economy has finally emerged from a six-year long recession; however, economic conditions have yet to fully recover. Retailers should only expect to see significant improvements during the second half of our forecast period. The country continues to struggle with high levels of unemployment and relatively lacklustre economic growth and this will ensure that opportunities remain somewhat limited. Despite this, Croatia is still home to numerous retail exp......
