With escalating tariffs going into effect on September 24 2018 between the US and China, this will continue to have a large impact on the food and drink industry and reduce consumer spending as a whole. The perishable nature of food and drink products means that it will be one of the first industries hit by the tariffs as these goods need to be moved quickly through supply chains and would lead to higher prices at grocery stores. The tariffs will not affect our topline growth forecasts for now, but at the company level, this may cause some significant turmoil for US-based companies with large international presences. We continue to expect growth to average 6.1% across food and non-alcoholic drinks in 2018, before improving to 7.4% in 2019. This elevated level of expenditure will be driven by trends towards healthification and premiumisation, as global companies continue to respond to this by investing in new startups and products, in an effort to reinvigorate stagnating sales. For now, these trends should overcome the higher prices but a prolonged trade war impacting other spending segments could force consumers to cut back their overall expenditure across many categories over the longer term.
