Market Report, "Mexico Freight Transport Report Q2 2014", Published  

 

Boston, MA -- 04/30/2014 -- We have upgraded our 10-year average real GDP growth from 3.8% to 4.1%, following the passage of energy sector reform, which we expect will garner significant foreign investment in the coming years. We remain optimistic toward Mexico's long-term growth outlook on the back of a booming manufacturing sector, an increasingly strong private consumer and favourable demographics.

 


The latest release of GDP data show that manufacturing in Mexico grew 2.9% year-on-year (y-o-y) during the third quarter of 2013. In addition to favourable data out of the US, Mexico's key export market, we note that autos manufacturers Chrysler and Nissan have indicated plans to expand manufacturing capacity at their plants in Mexico. The passage of energy sector reform will bolster sentiment towards Mexican assets and contribute to stronger real GDP growth in the coming years...
 

 

 

 

 

 

Mexican soft fruit is doing really well. The industry has evolved, both in the domestic and in the export market. It is expected that the revenue generated by the four main types of soft fruit (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries) will exceed $1 billion within five years. 

 

The conditions for soft fruit production in Mexico are ideal: 1,500 metres above sea level, an average of 800-1200 mm of rainfall and temperatures between 16-25 degrees Celsius. The production area has increased from 9,000 hectares in 2004 to more than 22,000 hectares in 2012. The same applies to production volumes, from 207,000 tonnes in 2004 to more than 524,000 tonnes in 2012. The production of blackberries, blueberries and raspberries over the past 12 years has grown at an annual average of 22 %. Mexico is estimated to be the world's sixth largest berry producer and the second largest exporter...

BRP Inc., the former recreational products division of Bombardier Inc. that makes Ski-Doos and off-road vehicles, says it will invest $55-million to build a third manufacturing plant in Mexico that will lead to the introduction of a new product line.

Chief executive Jose Boisjoli said the investment will allow BRP to continue to make inroads with its Can-Am all-terrain and side-by-side vehicles in the fast-growing off-road industry...

COLLEGE STATION - U.S. exports of grain, oilseed and related products to Mexico averaged 22.2 million metric tons per year from 2008-2012 with an average annual value of $7.3 billion, according to a report by the Center for North American Studies at Texas A-M University. The result is a 22 percent volume increase over the average of the early 2000s and two and a half times the value, according to the research findings.

 

  

Did you know?...

Some tequila is priced at $225,000

  

 

I know what you're thinking:"Tequila prices have been rising for years, but 225,000 dollars for a bottle is ridiculous!"  

 

"Are we talking about a regular-sized bottle, or a supersized jumbo-jet full of liquor?" It may be ridiculous, but it is nonetheless true. The tequila company Tequila Ley .925 issued a press release in July 2006 proudly announcing the introduction of three different presentations of "Tequila Ley .925, Pasion Azteca, Gold and Platinum".

Sightings of the Loch Ness monster

  

 

The first written account of the Loch Ness Monster, or Nessie, was made by the Viking Adamnan in 565AD. He described how St. Columba heard about the monster killing a man, and then rowed to the center of the loch to order the beast to stop such attacks in the future. Ever since that time, legend has it, Nessie has never repeated its misdemeanor. But it's still there - according to a number of people who saw her.
