Key Market Issues

  • Competition from other alcoholic beverages – Beer has been losing share to rival competitors such as wine and spirits. Wine has been gaining share in Europe due to its antioxidant properties and easy pairing with any food. Spirits is gaining share in the US due to increased promotional efforts including advertisements on television, availability of wide array of flavored products at various price points ranging from above-premium offerings to value-priced offerings
  • Prohibition on smoking in public places in the European Union – Partial and complete bans imposed on smoking in public places in countries all over Europe has led to an adverse impact on the frequency of visits to on-trade premises and in turn clip the sales volumes of alcoholic beverages. With recession curbing the purchasing power of consumers and smoking ban the desire to visit on-trade channels, the frequency of purchase of beer in retail outlets will increase, causing off-trade channels to outperform on-trade channels.
  • Preventing alcohol abuse through restriction on promotional activities – The approval of the proposition drawn by the UN health agency to prevent alcohol abuse in the first half of 2010 by prohibiting promotion of alcohol to young consumers either through advertisements or through sales promotions will cause brewers to reconsider their strategy to penetrate developing markets. With growth slowing down in developed economies, such prohibitions on promotional activities will make it difficult for international brands to penetrate emerging markets and gain share from domestic players
