2014-02-07 21:07:04 - United States Food and Drink Report Q1 2014 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
We remain positive on the growth trajectory for the US economy over the next several years, as we believe that many structural factors are aligning for a period of sustained growth, underpinning our forecast for real GDP growth to average 2.4% per year from 2013-2018, up from 0.8% per year from 2008-2012. The labour market recovery, while well under way, has further to go, meaning that modest increases in job creation will prove to be a boon to spending over the medium term. Consumer deleveraging continues, meaning that a future upswing in credit will also accelerate private consumption. All these will benefit food & drink consumption growth, but we are not yet convinced that the industry will see growth recovering
to levels seen before the crisis. This will favour growth in lower value segments of the food and drink sector (canned and beer) as well as convenience and discount stores over normal retail stores in 2014.
