Major Industry & Manufacturing Countries

The top manufacturing and industrial superior countries in the world have the capability of being the superpowers, and since a couple of years the world's top manufacturing country has been China, which is no surprise in itself that China comes out as number one on this list, as it already occupies so many of the world’s top spots, such as fastest-growing major economy, largest exporter, largest importer, most populous country, world’s largest trading power, biggest energy consumer, world’s richest bank etc.
 
The quintessential poster-child for economic development, since introducing economic reforms in the late 1970s China’s world standing has steadily risen to the point where many senior academics and analysts are predicting it to overtake the United States as the world’s leading superpower in the near future. More recently China has built important bi-lateral economic and trade relationships with fellow BRIC nations, particularly Brazil and Russia, as well as Argentina and emerging African nations. Followed by United States, although having been on number one and this has been the case since before World War II. In 2007, the United States' manufacturing output has been trillion dollars. But, lately the USA's output per-capita has not been the world's greatest as that honor goes to Japan. Important goods manufactured in the United States include production machinery and equipment, industrial supplies, non-auto consumer goods, motor vehicles and parts, aircraft and parts, food, feed and beverages, and many others. With more than 1.2 billion people, India has the tenth largest nominal GDP, and even though it is the newly industrialized country it is still facing many major challenges such as poverty, malnutrition, public healthcare, and on a positive note it has become a major global player in machinery, food processing, chemicals, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, textiles, telecoms, cement, mining, steel and software, among others. According to Deloitte's prediction, India will be one of the major powerhouses in manufacturing by 2018.

United States Metals Report Q1 2015

United States Metals Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: The US metals sector will see modest growth over the next several years. Accelerating
economic expansion will encourage metal production and consumption, but total production and
consumption levels will remain below pre-crisis levels through 2018.
Accelerating real GDP growth in the coming quarters will lead to modest growth in the metals sector. We
now forecast real GDP growth of 2.7% in 2015, up from our previous forecast of 2.6%, and estimate growth

Iran Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: We reiterate our view that the Iranian construction industry will pick up momentum in the
short-to-medium term, with growth forecast to average 3.6% over the next five years. While this is highly
dependent upon the outcome from negotiations with the West over the nuclear programme, the market is
already showing signs of recovery and interest from international firms is on the rise.
The Islamic Republic remains a country of pronounced risks, including political instability, economic

United States Mining Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: The US mining industry will remain among the largest in the world, but will see just modest
expansion to 2018. The bulk of mineral output and mining investment in the Americas region will occur in
developing markets in Latin America. Still, the US's mining industry value will reach USD135bn in 2018 as
the country's stable economic and political environment, coupled with its long history of mining and its
significant mineral reserves, should enable sector expansion.

Iraq Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Iraq Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Due to the ongoing deterioration of security in Iraq following the rise of Islamic State (IS) we
substantially lowered our real growth forecasts for the construction sector last quarter. IS is now in control
of large swathes of Iraq's north and west, and while the threat to the oil industry is minimal, the ongoing
political and security unrest remains a significant hindrance to Iraq's future. Ongoing delays in the
formation of a new government and an inability to agree a 2015 national budget are further hindrances to
potential growth.

Egypt Agribusiness Report Q1 2015

Egypt Agribusiness Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Egypt is the world's largest wheat importer and will benefit from the recent sell-off in grain
prices. The country is in the process of reforming its food subsidy programme in an effort to make the
process more efficient. We believe that particularly good growth prospects exist in the country's livestock
and dairy industries, as cattle herds continue to recover from a foot and mouth outbreak in 2012. These
sectors will also benefit from lower global grain prices relative to the last several years, and an improving

Japan Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Japan Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: The rapid decline in construction and infrastructure growth in Japan is a sign that the
government's aggressive stimulus measures have already begun to wear off. This once again underscores
our long-held view that Japan's fiscal stimulus programme is not a sustainable path forward for either the
infrastructure sector or the broader economy, and that significant structural reforms are needed to restore
competitiveness. Following an estimated 3.3% rate of real growth in 2014, we expect the construction

Philippines Agribusiness Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: We hold a positive view on the Philippines' agribusiness sector in the long term, given the
potential for expansion into new sectors such as palm oil. Our outlook is especially positive for sugar
production, and we also believe the livestock sector will continue to post healthy growth rates. The
Philippines' vast consumption market, along with strong government support, will foster domestic and
foreign investment and favour output expansion. However, backyard farming and infrastructure problems,

Namibia Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Namibia Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: The construction sector in Namibia continues to perform well but longer term growth forecasts
have been downgraded to reflect base effects from current high levels. In the near term the sector is
expected to perform exceptionally well with year-on-year (y-o-y) growth of 27.45% for 2014. We expect
prolonged construction industry to be maintained owing to the government's major investment drives and
strong natural resource demand.
Namibia's construction sector growth is being driven by a number of factors (listed below). The country has

Thailand Agribusiness Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Thailand will maintain its status as a key Asian agricultural provider in the coming years, as
the sector benefits from strong export opportunities and government support as well as an efficient foodproducing
industry. The sugar and livestock sectors are especially promising; however, the government's
interference in the market, especially in the rice sector, will hinder the competitiveness of Thailand's
production relative to its Asian rivals. Thailand will remain a key rice exporter but may lose out to

Nigeria Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Nigeria Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: In our view Nigeria represents a high reward market, now the largest in Africa, and has an
impressive growth trajectory over our 10-year forecast period which sees construction industry real growth
averaging 12%. Improving power supply and transport links will also be a driver of growth, but the
infrastructure sector is more exposed to the numerous risks in Nigeria's business environment.
The potential of Nigeria's infrastructure market has long been known, however a chronic lack of investment

Ukraine Agribusiness Report Q1 2015

Ukraine Agribusiness Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: All agricultural markets will be negatively affected by recent Russian military intervention and
poor macroeconomic fundamentals in Ukraine. There will be limited investment into the country over the
coming quarters given the unstable situation, which will affect agricultural production over our forecast
period. Particularly for the dairy and livestock industry, Russia's ban on imports from Ukraine will
negatively weigh on production as Russia represents one of Ukraine's largest agricultural export markets.

Russia Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Russia Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: We forecast 1.2% real growth in Russia's construction industry in 2015 following an estimated
contraction of 6.6% in 2014. Our forecast for 2015 is supported by low base effects, strong government
support for infrastructure development and robust demand. However, we highlight that EU and US
sanctions, following Russia's actions in Ukraine, have severely deteriorated the country's business
environment, further deterring foreign investment.

in the future. Several aspects of Croatia's defence and security posture are examined, including its defence

Singapore Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Singapore Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: We continue to expect construction and infrastructure growth in Singapore to moderate over
the 2014-2020 period. Real growth for the construction sector is forecast to slow from 5.9% in 2014 to
3.0% in 2019, while real growth for the infrastructure sector is expected to fall from 12.7% in 2014 to 4.0%
in 2019. This moderation is primarily due to declining housing demand, longer construction periods for
planned infrastructure projects and a poor export outlook, which could curb investment in non-residential
buildings.

Israel Defence and Security Report Q1 2015

Israel Defence and Security Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: Israel's domestic and regional security situation remains volatile. BMI thinks that the ceasefire
between Israel and Hamas is a short-term solution for temporary peace. However, we expect a likely
resumption of hostilities in the not too distant future. We are currently most concerned about the rising
tensions across the West Bank. We also expect the number of Christian draftees into the army to increase
without notable impact to the size of the army.

Turkey Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Turkey Infrastructure Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: A buoyant pipeline of projects, government guarantees for investors and a wave of planned
privatisations bode well for growth in Turkey's construction and infrastructure sector. However, financing
risks have grown over the past year, which we believe will dent growth over the longer term. We note that
Turkey will remain one of the most attractive markets in the region in spite of this.
There continues to be downside risks to Turkey's healthy construction sector outlook, stemming from the

Turkey Defence and Security Report Q1 2015

Date Published: Nov 19 2014

BMI View: On the whole, Turkey is one of the more stable countries in the Near East region. That said, the
instability in its surrounding neighbourhood is affecting Turkey's regional interests. BMI thinks that
international dynamics are bringing Turkey to roll back somewhat its Syrian policy, notably through
modification of its previous support of extremist groups in the region. Turkey is continuing its efforts to
boost its indigenous defence production capacity are continuing via investments, joint ventures with
