Industry Trend Analysis - Health-Consciousness To Heighten Plant-Based Alternatives - OCT 2016

Americas September 2016 / United States / Industry

Following solid growth in the plant-based beverages sector, we hold a positive outlook on plant-based alternative foods over our forecast period to 2020. In particular, we believe plant-based meat alternatives will experience increased demand as protein diets become an important part of consumption patterns. Owing to fast-evolving consumer tastes, we expect M&A activity to rise between large industry players and innovative small-scale companies within the healthy foods segment


Market Strategy - Agribusiness Company Strategy - OCT 2016

Asia Pacific September 2016 / Europe / Industry

However, stagnating oil prices, a flattening yield curve in the US (stemming from reduced domestic growth expectations), stretched valuations and the ongoing impact of the UK's Brexit referendum mean that global equities will face considerable headwinds in the coming weeks.


Industry Trend Analysis - Challenging Coffee Market For Tim Hortons - OCT 2016

Europe September 2016 / United Kingdom / Industry

Middle East & Africa September 2016 / Middle East / Industry

We hold a positive outlook on the evolving consumption patterns stemming from rising incomes, which bode well for the adoption of more premium healthier products.
