FMCG Industry Business Outlook and Procurement Survey H1 2016

Summary

Uncertain market conditions are not hindering the growth prospects of the FMCG industry over the next six months, as companies are planning to focus on new product development, expand in the current markets, and improve operational efficiency in H1 2016 (Apr 2016–Sep 2016). FMCG executives are confident about emerging markets such as China and India, and developed markets, namely the US and UK, contributing significant growth towards the FMCG industry during the next six months. Although the highest percentage of global FMCG executives projects an increase in merger and acquisition activity over the next six months, they intend to increase capital expenditure on new product development, and machinery and equipment purchases. Procurement activities will increase on IT services and capital equipment purchases amid the expectation of a surge in supplier prices over the next six months.
