New Market Report: Chile Food & Drink Report Q3 2014

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

The growth of the Chilean food and drink industry will continue to decelerate in 2014, affected by weak demand for the country's exports in the Asian markets. Recent increases in consumer prices, combined with stagnant wage growth, are set to weigh on consumer spending. This is reflected in our outlook for private consumption, which is forecast to grow at 4.5% in 2014 compared with 6.1% and 5.5% in 2012 and 2013 respectively. That said, we expect expansionary monetary policy and increased government spending to support economic activity and prevent a sharper decline in consumption.
