Bulgaria Consumer & Retail Report Q4 2017

Bulgaria Consumer & Retail Report Q4 2017

BMI View: We maintain a positive outlook for the Bulgarian consumer and retail industry on account of favourable economic conditions and relative political stability. Household consumption will be supported by the tightening labour market, elevated consumer confidence and rapidly rising incomes. Rising tourist arrivals and a favourable crediting environment will further bolster consumer spending in 2017 and 2018.

We maintain a positive outlook for the Bulgarian consumer and retail industry on account of favourable economic conditions and relative political stability. Our Country Risk team forecasts Bulgaria's real GDP growth to come in at 3.5% in 2017 and accelerate to 3.7% in 2018 due to rising investment from EU structural funds. Household consumption will remain the key driver of Bulgarian growth over the next two years and we forecast private consumption to register real growth rates of 3.3% and 3.5% in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
