Market Report, "Slovenia Retail Report Q2 2015", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Feb 03 2015

The Slovenian retail market is set to post a slow but stable growth rate over the forecast period amidst the public reforms and high market maturity. The decline of euro against dollar will make non-EU imports less competitive, however, the European retail chains and consumer goods producers will benefit from a mature and increasingly sophisticated Slovenian retail market. Total household spending will rise by 1.3% in euro terms in 2015 and will accelerate slowly to reach almost USD30bn in 2019 as the country and euro zone will be exiting a prolonged recession.

The retailers in Slovenia have been benefiting from the improving economic climate recently. After the country faced three parliamentary elections in 2013-2014, more stability and optimism is visible among the Slovenians. Consumer confidence has been rebounding consistently over 2014 rising from -31 to -19 in twelve months, the highest year-end figure since 2007 and BMI expects that consumer expectations will spur the growth of the retail sector, as well as the overall economy. The government is playing a key role in the development of the retail sector as the country has to respond to the demands and fulfil its obligations to the European Union, including budget balancing and the tax system. The retailers, however, are not likely to see any profound fiscal changes in the near future: the proposed soft drinks tax which would have raised the prices by at least 10% was abandoned in December 2014 and will not be reconsidered. Moreover, Zdravko Po?ivalšek, the new government's minister of economy, has promised that he would fight any new proposals of taxes making the business environment more predictable and suitable for domestic and foreign investors.
