Sale T-Shirts and TVs in Peru growing before FIFA World Cup
In Peru, the sale of TVs and T-Shirts has grown as the FIFA World Cup begins soon. It is the first time in 36 years that Peru participates in the World Cup.
According to the CCL, the Chamber of Commerce of Lima, 216,000 televisions were imported in April. Imports of the high-demanded televisions with 50 and 55-inches experienced growth rates between 100% and 180%.
Diogenes Alva, a Gamarra textile businessman, commented they already sold 3 million shirts during the elimination phase of the FIFA World Cup. Until the end of the World Cup, he aims at selling around 4 million t-shirts.
Especially the sale of beverages, snacks, and beer might experience a growth of 30% in Peru during the World Cup. Although Peru did not participate in the World Cup in Brazil in 2014, beverages, beers, and snacks grew 15% to 20%.
Apart from the food and beverage sector, the tourism sector will also profit from the World Cup in Russia. Travel packages for participating one week in the World Cup in Russia include car rental, travel insurance, transfers from city to city, accommodation in a three-star hotel and airline tickets and cost between US$ 3,500 and US$ 4,000.
