Latest Updates and Key Forecasts
We forecast that the market will record a US dollar 2014-2019 CAGR of -11.3%, which will take expenditure down to USD0.5bn. The negative dollar growth rate will reflect a sizeable devaluation of the bolivar in 2015 and a steady devaluation from 2016 onwards. This will translate into a massive contraction in 2015, before a return to double-digit growth in 2016.
Imports over the forecast period will not return to the 2010-2011 levels in US dollar terms due to the economic recession, a deteriorating business climate, the devaluation of the local currency and tighter import controls imposed by the National Foreign Trade Centre (CENCOEX - Centro Nacional de Comercio Exterior).
Exports will remain negligible. Major barriers include limited domestic production geared to the internal market, a lack of export capabilities and weak regulatory compliance to meet the needs of external markets.
Import restrictions due to unfavourable macroeconomic conditions continued in 2015. CENCOEX is controlling imports tightly as the government does not seem to have enough subsidised dollars to maintain the import flow, while importers are dealing with increasing uncertainty, confusion, time delays and arrears.
