India | Vaccine surge to energize consumption in 2022

report image for Vaccine surge to energize consumption in 2022

We still think India’s recovery will be subdued in H2 2021, despite a significant pick-up in vaccinations from August. The uptick in inoculations is mostly first doses, and it will take time for second doses to be administered. As per our estimates, around 40% of the population will be fully vaccinated by end 2021.

What you will learn from this report:

  • Based on the latest data, we have brought forward our timeline for 70% of the population to be fully vaccinated to Q1 2022, from Q2 earlier.
  • This should provide a strong fillip to sentiment early next year and spur consumption.
  • In the short-term, the relatively low proportion of the fully vaccinated will likely keep consumers cautious and constrain the recovery in services and manufacturing.
  • Mounting supply-side disruption are also a drag on momentum.

Finland’s growth forecast cut amid weak confidence and soaring inflation

We have lowered our 2022 GDP growth forecast for Finland to 1.5% from 1.7% last month, as weakening confidence further dampens the outlook. We expect inflation to peak higher with a greater passthrough to core prices, squeezing real incomes and denting consumption. Russia has accounted for almost 10% of Finland's goods trade, among the highest in Europe.

Why we see eurozone inflation slowing sharply next year

We have revised our 2022 eurozone inflation forecasts sharply higher, to 6.0%, since the start of the Ukraine war, as energy and food prices began to soar and new supply bottlenecks emerged. That said, we still see inflation decelerating sharply to 1.3% in 2023, putting us below consensus. While we recognise significant risks to our views, inflation should slow to below 2% in H2 2023.
