As Brazil’s federal government prepares for a sharp fiscal adjustment, FSG analyzes how reduced government spending and higher taxes will affect public sector sales, private demand, and business investment, and highlights pockets of opportunity to sustain top-line performance.

For companies selling to the government, resilient demand might be found in some ministries. Consumer goods companies will have to confront an environment of higher unemployment and more stringent access to credit, though both factors will vary significantly across geographies. Companies selling business inputs can expect new sales opportunities via new public tenders as the government tries to shore up its finances.
