Featured research: Champagne sales in tune with the times
It was hardly a huge surprise when the Comité Interprofessionnel des Vins de Champagne reported a decline in Champagne sales for 2008 in February this year.
According to just-drinks’ latest edition of its popular report, the relatively lean times for Champagne may well continue for at least the next three years. The report, Global market review of Champagne - forecasts to 2012, forecasts that sales will decline further to 301.1m bottles in 2009, remain more or less stable in 2010 and only recover to 323.5m bottles by 2012.
“Part of the problem for Champagne is that prices have risen recently as costs have escalated - everything from the price of grapes to salaries, interest rates and energy costs,” the reports states. “Consumers are currently more aware of price than at any time since the early 1990s, so further increases must be resisted at all costs.”
However, in spite of the problems created by the current market conditions, the report does not forecast the kind of major slump seen during previous international economic crises. “Several factors - the size and diversity of the industry's global markets, relative stability of supply and grape prices, and a more thoughtful reaction to the downturn - encourage the belief that a crisis will be avoided,” the report predicts.
Some bright signs for short-term recovery:
A 'rosé' future?

New: just-drinks' global FSDs report
Global market review of functional soft drinks - forecasts to 2014
This report aims to provide invaluable insight into a sector that has experienced a surge in growth in the early part of this decade, with fluctuations across certain sub-categories. In some countries, more recently, manufacturers have been finding their feet in a comparatively embryonic sector. As consumers seek to achieve optimum performance in their daily life, at work, and while playing sport for pleasure or professionally, drinks manufacturers are in a position to meet consumer demands through innovative new product launches and line extensions. The next stage for functional soft drink (FSD) brands, however, is more specific targeting by occasion and health concern, opening up opportunities in ever-increasing circles to target new consumers and usages.
This report provides a snapshot of the current issues, trends and challenges in the FSDs market, considering energy and sports drinks as separate categories in the first part of the report and moving on to analyse opportunities in more specific sub-categories such as child- and senior-specific FSDs. Analysis of market value and volume sales, with forecasts to 2014, plus consumer and industry trends and developments are provided to identify and quantify future profit opportunities in the market.
Coming soon: Global market review of specialty spirits - forecasts to 2013
just-drinks' next joint publication with The IWSR will look at the global specialty spirits market.
While the broad perception today is that the global spirits market is rapidly approaching hegemony under the leadership of a number of multinational companies, the reality is somewhat different. It may surprise, but the top ten multinationals in volume terms only have around a 15% market share of the global spirits industry.
This brand new report reviews all of the non-mainstream, but major specialty spirits categories, covering the key brands and products in: Aniseed-, Cane-, Grape-, Fruit-, Coconut-, Juniper-, Root-, Rice-, Potato- or corn- and Cactus/agave-based spirits. The report will provide market data from The IWSR and will make essential reading for anyone wanting an overview of all of these spirits categories.
