Euromonitor International Introduces New Analysis on Global Cities
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, Jan 14, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Global market research company Euromonitor International announced
today the launch of Passport: Cities, a database providing fully
comparable data and in-depth analysis on 850 cities worldwide.
Passport: Cities provides localized city economic profiles and
analysis on consumers. Analysis is based on urban economic theory and
was developed by Euromonitor's extended global network of in-country
"Passport: Cities looks at consumers and the economic profiles of
cities around the globe. For example, in terms of both population and
real per capita GDP, we can look globally to find extremely strong
growth through 2020 in Chinese cities. Since Chinese economic growth
and job creation takes place primarily in cities, people migrate from
rural to urban areas on a very large scale," explains Kotryna
Gailiute, City Research Manager at Euromonitor International. "In per
capita GDP creation, the winners will not be Beijing or Shanghai, but
the less well-known metropolises, such as Wuhan and Tianjin."
The database covers 850 cities and features in-depth city reviews,
regularly updated reports and breaking news analysis. Reports cover
the economic make-up, demographic trends, level and distribution of
household income, consumer spending preferences, infrastructure and
affordability at the city level.
"The population that moves from rural to urban areas will become more
accessible to businesses due to better infrastructure in cities.
Consumers will also switch from rural to urban consumption habits and
lifestyles. Increasing per capita GDP means that demand will rise for
higher-end products, such as high-quality goods and services, organic
food, leisure and recreation services, hi-tech gadgets and branded
clothing," said Gailiute.
