Israel's retail sector will respond positively to the government's stimulus in 2016. After the cabinet slashed water and public transportation tariffs and fares and as the central bank kept interest rates at a historical low of 0.1%, total household spending will rise by 6.6% this year. While many households will invest their wealth in housing and real estate, retailers across non-essentials sub-sectors will be able to see increased consumption activity.

Key Views And Developments

Israel's second largest supermarket chain Mega, which has been suffering from financial difficulties, has been reported seeking protection from its creditors after failing to reach agreement with its suppliers. The controlling stake in the chain's parent company Alon Blue Square Israel was sold by its owner for NIS115mn (USD29mn) later in January.

Next, a UK-based clothing and homeware retailer, is considering entry to Israel after successfully competing in the country's under-saturated online market.

Disposable incomes of Israeli households will rise as the country's cabinet approved 14.5% reduction in water tariffs in January, a week after public transportation fees were slashed by the same amount. The measure is expected to cost NIS250mn (USD63mn).

As shekel bounces back and households enjoy growing disposable incomes, the total household spending will average a 6.4% annual growth rate during 2016-2020.

Around 0.5mn households will join the USD50,000+ income bracket by 2020 as the affluent population booms in the medium term.
