Austria Country Risk Report Q1 2016, New Report Launched

Core Views

  • Austrian real GDP growth will accelerate in 2016, but economic activity will lag behind regional peers despite improving external demand from the eurozone.
  • At a federal level, support for the Freedom Party (FPÖ) is continually on par with that of the SPÖ-ÖVP coalition. Given its strong performance in the Styria and Burgenland elections, we expect the FPÖ party to make further gains in the Upper Austria and Viennese elections in late 2015.

Key Risks To Outlook

  • Lacklustre consumer spending could result in a lower negative contribution from imports. This would bolster growth over the year though we do not feel this could significant deviate from forecasts in 2015.
  • Continually robust support for the far right Freedom Party in 2014 remains a salient political risk consideration.

Report forecast the winter tire market in Austria to grow at a CAGR of 1.804 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Winter tires, also referred to as snow tires, cold weather tires, and thermal tires, improve the road safety for vehicles during winter, and thus play an important role in reducing road accidents. These tires are made of soft rubber compared to the all-season or summer tires, which help achieve better grip during winters. Furthermore, the newer generation of winter tires is designed with a more flexible rubber compound that is less prone to stiffening in colder temperatures. Its tread is designed to provide improved traction on wet, slushy, snowy, icy, and dry cold surfaces. Winter tires are fitted in sets of four, because fitting only a pair affects the balance and stability of the automobile. Winter tires are of three types: performance, studded, and non-studded.

Personal Accident and Health Insurance in Austria, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018, New Report Launched

The personal accident and health segment generated the least gross written premium in the Austrian insurance industry in 2013. Health insurance was the segment’s largest category during the review period (2009−2013). The country’s robust social security system provides healthcare cover for 99% of the population, offering little scope for private health insurance. Tax exemptions, coverage of diseases not covered by the social security system, and alternative treatment options including dental care and psychotherapy encourage Austrians to purchase private health insurance.

Despite being the smallest segment, personal accident and health insurance registered the fastest growth, with a review-period CAGR of 3.7%, mainly due to rising government healthcare expenditure. The segment also benefited from an increasing number of outbound passengers due to the country’s improved commercial relationships with leading world economies. This enabled the travel insurance category to record stable growth during the review period. The personal accident and health segment is expected to continue its rapid growth over the forecast period (2013−2018), despite the country’s strong statutory healthcare scheme and difficult business conditions.

Austria’s Cards and Payments Industry – Emerging Opportunities, Trends, Size, Drivers, Strategies, Products and Competitive Landscape, New Report Launched

Austria has a highly developed payment infrastructure, providing substantial growth opportunities for the cards and payments industry. The country’s highly developed and well regulated financial system provided scope for the development of electronic payment systems. As consumers became aware of the benefits of electronic payments, the use of cash has registered a review-period (2009–2013) downturn. With anticipated economic recovery, an increase in disposable incomes and employment levels, as well as the proliferation of new technologies in the payment cards market, this is anticipated to provide further impetus to electronic payments over the forecast period (2014–2018), thus benefitting the cards and payments industry.

Credit transfers and direct debit payments were the preferred payment instruments, having a combined industry share of 95.3% in terms of transaction value, while payment cards accounted for just a 1.1% share in 2013. The use of cash is continuously decreasing and its share fell during the review period, going from 4.1% in 2009 to 3.1% in 2013.

In terms of the number of cards in circulation, Austrian payment cards (including debit, credit and charge cards) registered a positive growth during the review period, recording a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.46%, increasing from 10.3 million in 2009 to 11.4 million in 2013. In terms of transaction value, payment cards valued EUR51.3 billion (US$68.1 billion) in 2013, after registering a review-period CAGR of 4.43%. Improved banking infrastructure, new product developments, a higher awareness of electronic payments and wider acceptance of payment cards at POS terminals were the key factors driving growth. The adoption of Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) standards, as well as the emergence of contactless technology, also supported the industry’s growth.

In 2013, the average transaction value (ATV) in Austria was US$101, which was the eighth highest in the European region. Greece recorded the highest ATV, with US$227.6, followed by Switzerland (US$156.6), Italy (US$141.2), Germany (US$131.5), Luxembourg (US$121.2), Ireland (US$106.4) and Romania (US$104.3). In terms of card penetration, Austria recorded 1.34 cards per inhabitant in 2013, followed by Croatia (1.96), Sweden (2.28), the UK (2.46), Norway (2.53) and Luxembourg (4.17).

With the onset of the European debt crisis, the majority of consumers redefined their spending habits, refraining from making unnecessary expenditure. In terms of frequency of use, Austria recorded 59.1 transactions per card in 2013, followed by Norway (122.9), France (127.8), Estonia (149.4), Denmark (159.2) and Finland (172.8).

In terms of transaction value, debit cards remained the preferred type of payment card during the review period. Owing to the European debt crisis and uncertain economic conditions, the majority of Austrian consumers preferred to use debit cards for purchases, in order to keep a check on expenses. Consequently over the review period, the debit cards market registered growth in terms of the number of cards in circulation, transaction value and volume. Additionally, a very unique feature of Austrian debit cards is the availability of the ‘Quick’ function. All Maestro debit cards are enabled with this function, allowing cardholders to load amounts of up to EUR400 (US$530.3) at any ATM or specific terminal.

Construction in Austria – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018, New Report Launched

The Austrian construction industry recorded a CAGR of 1.41% during the review period. Growth in the construction industry remained subdued during the review period as a result of the economic crisis. Over the forecast period, the outlook for construction is favorable due to increased investment in residential construction and the government’s focus on country’s infrastructure construction. Improving exports and global economic conditions and increased foreign direct investment (FDI) in the country will also help the industry to grow over the forecast period. According to national investment promotion company ABA – Invest in Austria, the total investment volume increased by 15.9% from EUR154.3 million (US$204.6 million) in the first half of 2013 to EUR180.0 million (US$242.8 million) in the first half of 2014.

Key Highlights

  • Following the global economic crisis, Austria’s construction industry recorded slow growth during the review period. It contributed marginally to the country’s economic growth, with an average of 0.6% increase in the national construction output index in 2013. According to Statistics Austria, the average turnover index of the construction industry increased from 74.8 in the first quarter of 2013 to 81.0 in the first quarter of 2014, whereas the average production index increased from 70.8 to 75.6 during the same period. Over the forecast period, growth in the industry will remain positive, supported by improvements in global economic conditions, low interest rates, improving investor confidence and increased FDI in the country.
  • In nominal terms, the total construction value add in Austria was EUR19.5 billion (US$25.8 billion), in 2013, after registering a nominal review-period CAGR of 0.77%. Due to an increase in new orders in the construction industry, the value add is anticipated to reach EUR22.5 billion (US$31.7 billion) in 2018 and record a nominal forecast-period CAGR of 2.89%. According to Statistics Austria, the average index of new orders in the construction industry rose from 88.8 in the first quarter of 2013 to 100.7 in the first quarter of 2014. The average index of new orders for building construction increased from 87.9 in the first quarter of 2013 to 96.5 in the first quarter of 2014, whereas for civil engineering construction, it rose from 91.3 to 112.3 during the same period. The overall outlook for construction in Austria over the forecast period remains positive.
  • According to the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, all public buildings and newly constructed buildings must be nearly zero-energy buildings (NZEB) by 2018 and 2020 respectively. NZEBs are highly energy-efficient buildings with either proper insulation or meeting most of their energy demand from renewable energy sources. This directive will support development in the energy infrastructure and energy-efficient buildings, enhancing growth in the construction industry over the forecast period.

Austria Mobile Broadband Approaching Two-Thirds of All Broadband Connections, New Report Launched

Austria’s telecom market is dominated by the incumbent Telekom Austria and the cableco UPC. Nevertheless, there has been considerable competitive pressure in the fixed-line and mobile sectors in recent years. The regulator has also encouraged local loop unbundling to improve competition in the broadband market, and has introduced ‘virtual’ unbundling in the fibre sector.

The broadband market is dominated by the DSL platform, with Telekom Austria retaining a market lead, while cable is the principal alternative technology. Telekom Austria has invested in vectoring VDSL and G.fast technologies in a bid to deliver fast broadband services in urban areas with less investment than is required via FttP. For its part, UPC Austria has invested in DOCSIS3.o technology, and by delivering services at 120MB/s the has managed to retain customers and indeed attract new subscribers from DSL.

Austria’s market for converged media benefits from these excellent upgraded broadband networks. The strong TV market is served by mature the cable and satellite sectors as well as a fast developing DTTV infrastructure. Digital services have been available since 2006, with three multiplexes assigned to national and regional services and a fourth reserved for mobile broadcasting. This report profiles media convergence in Austria, including developments in the digital broadcast market, IPTV and VoD, as well as regulatory measures on the switch to digital TV.

The mobile market has undergone considerable changes in recent months. 3 Austria acquired the network and assets of Orange, so consolidating the market to three network operators, while the number of MVNOs and resellers is growing steadily. Part of this growth is due to regulatory concessions by which 3 Austria, as part of its Orange take-over, must provide 30% of network capacity to support up to 16 MVNOs. The competitive environment has led to relatively low ARPU for operators, as well as some of the region’s lowest tariffs for consumers. The 3G networks have seen impressive growth in subscriber uptake, largely at the expense of existing GSM offerings, while mobile broadband, based on HSPA and LTE technologies, has similarly shown extraordinary growth. LTE can be accessed by about half of the population. The late-2013 auction of spectrum in several bands will go far to expand mobile broadband in rural areas and improve capacity nationally.
