Malaysia Food & Drink Report

We hold an optimistic view on the Malaysian consumer through to 2018, with current conditions particularly buoyant. Our country risk team believes that real private consumption growth will come in at 7.0% in 2014 on the back of 4.5% real GDP growth. BMI holds the view that such strong consumer expenditure growth will be fuelled by cash handouts and increased welfare spending by the government. Despite mounting concerns about fuel price hikes, we believe declining global grain prices, subdued money supply growth and benign wage price pressure will keep Malaysia's consumer price inflation in check as we head further into 2014.

Headline Industry Data (local currency)

  • 2014 total food consumption sales growth (local currency): +3.0%; compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 2013-2018: +3.1%.

  • 2014 per capita food consumption sales growth (local currency): +1.4%; CAGR 2013-2018: +1.6%.

  • 2014 total soft drinks value sales growth (local currency): +4.1%; CAGR 2013-2018: +3.8%.

  • 2014 total MGR value sales growth (local currency): +10.6%; CAGR 2013-2018: +8.4%.
