Philippines Retail Report Q1 2016 - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Nov 13 2015

Robust economic growth will continue to support employment levels in the Philippine which, together with the rising amount of households, will lead to greater spending. While essential goods will continue to account for the lion's share of household spending, aspirational goods will become increasingly important on the back of rising affluence levels. Meanwhile, geographic fragmentation, large rural population and poor quality of transport infrastructure remain the main challenges for retailers operating in the country.

We retain our positive outlook for the Philippines' economy, with real GDP growth forecasted at 6.0% in both 2015 and 2016, which will increase employment and disposable incomes. However, a large part of the country's population remains employed in low-wage jobs in the agricultural and industrial sectors and will continue to be reliant on remittance inflows from Filipinos working overseas, which we expect to rise further over the coming quarters as more Filipinos move away and seek better job opportunities abroad. These trends will bode well for the retail sector. Not only will poverty in the country decline further but affluence levels will increase over our five-year forecast period, resulting in higher spending on the retail sector and strong growth in non-grocery and non-essential segments over the medium term.
