"Malaysia Food & Drink Report Q1 2016" now available at Fast Market Research

We hold an optimistic view on the Malaysian consumer through to 2019, although conditions will remain challenging throughout the rest of 2015. Our Asia Country Risk team forecasts real private consumption growth at 4.0% in 2015, on the back of 4.2% real GDP growth. We expect the combination of increased taxes (GST has been implemented since April 1) a weaker currency and relatively high household debt to weigh on private consumption in Malaysia in 2015 and beyond. As a result, real private consumption will slow down from 7.3% in 2014 to 4.0% in 2015. Over the next five years, it will average 4.9% annually, down from 7.1% in the previous decade. Despite continuing concerns about fuel price hikes, we believe declining global grain prices, subdued money supply growth and benign wage price pressure will keep Malaysia's consumer price inflation moderate as we head through 2015.
