Key Views & Developments

We expect household consumption to continue to improve, thanks to a stronger labour market (unemployment stands at 4.1%, beating the US's 5.0%), and higher wages. This will be further supported by low inflation), which will help support real purchasing power.

Growing consumer acceptance and demand for online retail has the potential to radically disrupt and transform the existing business environment and retail formats. Amazon has invested heavily to expand the market and this will likely cannibalise heavily on market share from Sear, Woolworths and Blockbusters. This will additionally intensify competition in convenience and grocery retail sectors and place pressure on margins for retailers like Walmart.

Banco de Mexico (the Mexican reserve bank) raise interest rates in December 2015 after following the FED increase, and further hikes can be expected throughout the year. However, the weak external environment and low inflation will keep interest expansion subdued and will remain offset by the growing economic competitiveness internationally of the Mexican economy, that will fuel strong household income growth. Net household income is set to rise 3.1% to USD18,358 in 2016, stimulating household spending which is forecast to see 45.2% growth between 2016 and 2020.
