Despite disappointing levels of economic growth over 2014, Singapore's disposable incomes have continued to rise, unemployed has remained low and the tourism sector remains robust. As a result of this, we forecast further growth in the retail sector over the coming five years and expect to see areas such as health, education and recreation and culture to receive the largest amounts of household spending. The city state's high cost of living will mean that the highest proportion of the household budget is channelled to housing and utility expenses. Singapore's retail market may face certain headwinds during 2015 owing to the government's ongoing economic restructuring as well as the slowdown in the Chinese economy.

While Singapore's economy is generally robust, the city-state only managed to achieve economic growth of 2.5% during 2014. This is expected to improve marginally to 3.33% in 2015. Nonetheless, household spending successfully remained strong and has continued to increase. We forecast the average net household income to be an impressive USD91,066 in 2015, with 45% of households falling into the top wage bracket of USD75,000+. By 2019 more than 57% of households are expected to qualify for this top income bracket, which represents the key demographic for increased household spending on luxury and branded items. We forecast corresponding growth in household spending on personal, insurance and other; restaurants and hotels; recreation and culture; and transport.
