August 16, 2019: Business Monitor International Inc.: Government Support Not Enough To Boost Russian Vehicle Sales 21 August 2019

NEWS BITES - PRIVATE COMPANIES

Given the intensifying headwinds in the Russian vehicle market, we expect vehicle sales growth to fall more than we have previously expected. Import duty cuts planned for September 1, 2019, will marginally support vehicle sales, however, we do not believe this will reverse the decline in vehicle sales or pose a threat to local car manufacturers.

May 17: Business Monitor International Inc.: Sony-Microsoft Partnership To Reinforce Gaming Dominance, Opens New Consumer AI Possibilities For Microsoft

Sony-Microsoft technology partnership is both defensive and opportunistic, with Microsoft set to be the main beneficiary with its Azure cloud offering now having the potential to penetrate the consumer hardware, services and applications markets. Cloud gaming collaboration will ensure PlayStation and XBox remain the dominant gaming platforms in the online-first era, making it more difficult for newcomers such as Google and Amazon to gain traction in the short to medium term.

April 29: Business Monitor International Inc.: Google And Amazon Use Music Streaming To Boost Home Speakers And Subscriptions

Amazon and Google have both launched free, ad-supported music streaming services through Alexa and Google Home-enabled devices, respectively. Until now, Spotify was the only on-demand music streaming provider to offer both a free, ad-supported tier and ad-free subscriptions. We believe the services' objective is to boost Amazon and Google's smart speakers and subscription services as a new business model, not become significant revenue sources. Amazon's and Google's new services will be competing directly with Spotify, which until now was the only on-demand musi.

August 19: Business Monitor International Inc.: Motorcycle Assembly In Uganda Best Bet For Establishing Domestic Autos Production Industry

Motorcycle production would be a more feasible option for establishing a Ugandan autos production industry due to the relative ease at which production can be set up compared with passenger and commercial vehicles. High motorcycle ownership rates in Uganda and across the East African region provide ample demand for motorcycles produced in Uganda. Import duty reductions by the East African Community (EAC) on imported motorcycle kits have improved the viability of motorcycle production.

We believe local motorcycle production is Uganda's best bet at establishing a competitive domestic autos production ind.
